Jasper and Zoey -
Grace Chon is a well known lifestyle photographer and award-winning advertising agency art director. Her clients include publishing companies, celebrities, TV shows, magazines and nonprofit organizations. Recently Grace decided to snap a few shots of her adorable and cute ten month old Chinese-Korean baby named ‘Jasper’ and her lovely 7-year-old rescue dog Zoey. She says Jasper always has a smile on his face when the camera comes out and rescue dog Zoey loves posing for the camera too.
Grace rescued adorable Zoey, she said, “She had a difficult start in Taiwan as a rescue dog, she was born in front of a store and the owner washed her and all her siblings into a gutter. A schoolgirl walking by witnessed this and scooped up all the puppies and carried them home, with Zoey’s mom following her all the way. She contacted Animal Rescue Team in Taiwan and they prepared the puppies and mom for adoption in the states.”
Grace writes us in email, “One day, I put one on Zoey and I had the epiphany that baby hats look ridiculously adorable on dogs too! My sister had the brilliant idea of sitting them side by side in a photo. The response was immediate and I just kept going with it. I love my dogs fiercely (I’m a crazy dog lady through and through!) and it was really important to me that my dogs have a great relationship with Jasper. Zoey has exceeded my expectations as a big sister and I’m so glad I’ve found a fun activity that involves both of them!”
Edith Pilaf - Portrait Photography by Irving Penn
Back in 2011, modern day mountain man Kolby Kirk spent 159 days hiking 1,700 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, a feat that he documented in self-portrait photos along the way. This montage of his self-portraits offers a glimpse of the epic journey, the 90 pounds he lost, and majestic beard he gained.
NEON EFFECT PHOTOGRAPHY
Light effects are just about as versatile as the imagination. The possibilities are endless. This is what Portuguese photographer Hid Saib discovered as he played around with some neon effects on people’s faces. Hid Saib used tiny flecks of vivid neon paint and decorated the faces as well as shoulders of the subjects in his portraits.
