Deep in the jungle of Vietnam, inside the world’s largest cave is a mystical world with its own ecosystem, climate, and even clouds. Photographer Nicole Chan was lucky enough to go exploring there, and the images she brought back are stunning.

Bill Hickey Goes Fishing

Bill Hickey‘s latest project takes us into the world of fly-fishing by introducing us to Kelly Harrison, an accomplished guide who is more than able at sharing her expertise, as well as her knowledge of her local environment and its ecosystems. But probably the most compelling aspect of this short film is it captures the experience of fly fishing beyond the obvious goal of catching fish – a context for interacting with nature and the environment, and according to doctors, we could all use a little more of that.

Photographer Inti St. Clair And Her Friends Head to Cartagena

Even though the trip was planned as a birthday celebration for herself and a friend, photographer Inti St. Clair wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to capture some great imagery. With the colorful street art as a backdrop and themes like “Tropical Fruity Fantasy”,  “Jungle Safari”, and “Overboard Yacht Glamour”, they had all they needed to create some great over-the-top imagery. Needless to say, the group was hard to miss as they island hopped, danced at the Cafe Havana, or explored the ancient walled city of Cartegena.

 

Jonathan Chapman Goes On Tour For McDonald’s

JCP1

Most of Jonathan Chapman’s projects these days require he shoot stills and motion capture side by side, and he and his crew have it down. They’ve made a name for themselves with this approach and the high quality deliverables they produce.
His latest assignment was to create a corporate image library for McDonald’s, which external agency partners have access to for various brand projects. The project took him from Austin to Vegas and up to Portland and Seattle in the Pacific Northwest. In a typical day it is not uncommon to generate between 5,000 and 7,500 captures. An edit of roughly 25 percent are delivered as “JCP selects” and a “JCP alts” just in case. In either case, Jonathan says he is “confident that the client will find what they need.” McDonald’s typically reshoots a library of this size every two years; however, they do produce one-time projects fairly regularly.
The talent are all real people, including the employees. The images have an authentic feel and make the most of subtle regional differences. Small details, like the strong silhouette and the unifying earthy warm palette, help create that signature JCP look, which is so useful for a vast corporate identity like McDonald’s.
