One the most fun things I’ve ever done was to photograph the 24 Hours of Le Mans car race in France. Of course, I was shooting it as an amateur with very limited access to the track, the cars, and the pits. And I did go back to the hotel to catch a little sleep at one point. (But it was still fun nonetheless and I got some great shots.)

For many of us, capturing what’s directly in front of the lens is our primary concern. We’re focused on reality. Some of us, however, like to step outside the box, to be inventive and let our imaginations soar. That, in a nutshell, describes the photography of Cade Martin. Martin isn’t satisfied with simply capturing moments in time, in finite space. He prefers to warp time and space, to enter his own dimension. And that quality in his work is what draws clients to him.

Born in 1829, Carleton Watkins was perhaps the greatest of early American Western photographers, yet his images are largely unknown today. His photographs of Yosemite Valley and throughout California’s Sierra Nevada mountains have been compared by some to those of Ansel Adams that followed.

American artist William Wegman has been enchanting us with whimsical photographs of his pet Weirmaraners for more than four decades. And as you’ll see in the charming video below, Wegman’s work represents far more than your typical “pet portraits.”

Michael Paul Smith is both an artist and a photographer (and a self-proclaimed recluse) who used his ingenuity, model-building expertise, and some miniature model cars to create these very realistic views of the small towns he recalled from his childhood. The short video below illustrates Smith’s project (and includes the perfect soundtrack for kicking off your work week).

Here’s a cool photography trick used to maximum effect. Dennis Stever is a Dubai-based photographer who is shooting an ongoing series where he positions his subjects so that it appears they are playing with the sun and the moon in their hands.

Cheryl Dunn’s excellent 2013 documentary about street photography, “Everybody Street,” has been available for rent (or as a purchasable download) on Vimeo for several years now but few know that you can also watch it for free on YouTube. The movie is available on FilmRise Features’ YouTube channel and we have embedded it below.

One activity many of us miss during this time of relative isolation is the opportunity to visit a theater and watch a great film. And especially for those who love photography, there’s no better way to do that at home than by watching the documentary Don’t Blink–Robert Frank

Some of you may remember Tom Anderson (AKA MySpace Tom), the Founder of MySpace who sold his social network to Rupert Murdock back in 2005 for a cool $580 million. Ever since, Anderson’s motto is “stop working and start playing” and he’s done that by pursuing a passion for photography.

Professional sports photography for the editorial market is an endangered species. Unfortunately, a lot of it has to do with editorial clients turning away from the professional photographer to sports enthusiasts who are willing to trade their photos for season tickets.

If you’ve ever wondered what the Caped Crusader looked like when he’s not out fighting crime, Swiss photographer Sebastian Magnani shows you in his whimsically fun new photo series titled Daily Batman. In the series, Magnani sets Batman up in a variety of scenarios in Zurich, Switzerland that look far from his dark superhero life in Gotham City.

Jill Freedman is not one of those names that readily rolls off the tongue when we discuss documentary photography. But it should be. Her documentary photographs are as real, as telling, as poignant as it gets. They are moments captured in a style all her own, albeit with the same measure of truth as a Dorothea Lange portrait of life during the Great Depression.
