There's a pretty good chance you know the work of photographer Michael H. Davies but perhaps not his name or his background. The image of his you've likely seen has become one of the more famous shots of this winter: a photo of someone tossing tea over their head in -40 degree weather near the Arctic Circle, the tea becoming a frozen cascade in the sky. The image, which you can see below, went viral and has been viewed by over 600 million people (and climbing).

We were going over the photos for this story when photographer Lucas Gilman said something I didn’t entirely agree with. He was talking about making an image in which a bird came into the frame just as a surfer was making his move on a wave. “Cameras are so good now, anybody can take the exact same pictures I can,” he said, “so what I do is look for and take advantage of subtleties that others overlook. That way I separate myself from everyone else who can buy a new camera and make great pictures.”

Scott Serfas is one photographer who likes to get in on the action. In fact, he thrives on it. There is a certain amount of serendipity involved, but there is also a certain amount of passive control, in the sense that Serfas knows what to expect and expects the unexpected.

Three years ago while looking for his next challenging project, Reuben Krabbe, a 25-year-old Canadian photographer, dreamt up the expedition that had brought a crew of nine—including Cody Townsend, Brody Leven and Chris Rubens, filmmaker Anthony Bonello, and photographer Bjarne Salén—to their frozen campsite, located in one of two places on earth with a perfect view of the total solar eclipse on March 20, 2015.

In 1979, photographer Steven Erra was given devastating news by his eye doctor—he would be blind within 20 years.

All pets want to be the center of attention and this little gray cat named Manny (along with his other critter pals including dogs, horses and another cat) is certainly no exception.

This amazing image might look like it was shot on a different planet but it was actually captured in commercial photographer Michelle Monique’s living room for her first paid gig back in 2009.

Every pet parent understands the fact that no dog can resist a tasty treat—and they’ll go to great lengths to get them.

For those of you who have never worked in medium format, trust me, there is a difference you can see and feel. It’s no wonder that photographers such as Douglas Sonders choose a medium format camera system over a DSLR for the bulk of their work. And in Sonders’s case, his workhorse camera system is Phase One.

Each month in this column I gather a collection of websites, sometimes with a loosely related theme. This month’s sites have little in common except an excellence of vision, proving they are not only most uncommon but the result of hard work.
