Alex Bernasconi shows us the world of penguins

For most people Antarctica remains a mystery. Only few of us have been there already or could possibly imagine traveling there one day. Because rationally speaking Antarctica definitely isn’t a cozy place for human-beings. Barren, cold and inhospitable. It certainly wasn’t on Mother Nature’s mind to make human-beings settle on the South Pole and so ...

Paul Nicklen – the one who speaks with polar bears

Again and again I’ve come across photos of his face when researching and browsing the internet for inspiring photographers. His face red because of the cold, snow crystals on his eyebrows and a cap covering his forehead. I wanted to know more about this guy, this crazy photographer who peeps out of some holes made ...

Laurent Baheux – Black and white wildlife photography

“To see in color is a delight for the eye but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul.” – Andri Cauldwell I’m a huge fan of black and white photography. I think that sometimes, when it comes to photographs, colors simply distract from the subject or motif. Black and white ...

Escaping the city

Trees are losing their last remaining leaves, autumn covers the city in a mist of grey and a cold wind is blowing through the streets. Winter is coming… and to provide my eyes and my lens with some change of impressions, I decided to drive to the countryside for a couple of days. Packed with ...

“Piper“ – Pixar’s little high-flyer

This time our article won’t relate to photography. It will be about a topic that fascinates me as much: movies. And currently there’s one movie that’s taking the world by storm. It lasts only 6 minutes, it’s called “Piper” and was produced by Pixar Animation Studios.  When in the beginning of the story the first ...
