Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. With love in the air we’re bringing you an interview with San Francisco based wedding photographer Anna Kuperberg. Anna’s work has been featured on the cover of Photo Magazine and Professional Photographer. This year she was voted one of the 10 best wedding photographers by American Photo magazine.
Pic of the day:
This picture was taken by the Associated Press’ chief photographer in Pakistan, Muhammed Muheisen. Apparently theres a brouhaha in Pakistan between conservatives boycotting Valentines day and Romantics who are striking back with pink teddy bears and flowers. Story here
How am I celebrating the day with my special lady? By taking her on a group date: Me, her and Bruce Willis in “A Good Day to Die Hard” .
Why be cliche and go with candles when you can really turn up the romance with HUGE EXPLOSIONS ? Apparently CNN agrees with me.
Dr. Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist, discusses how pictures, videos and images help us understand the universe. Hear from a physicist how we think visually and how video (and photography) will help get your message across to your audience.
Produced by Silber Studios, the first in the NYSE Big StartUp’s “Unlocking Potential” series. Guy Kawasaki, co-founder of Garage Technology Ventures and former chief evangelist at Apple Inc., recently sat down with Evernote’s CEO Phil Libin to extract advice for other budding entrepreneurs.
I had the idea for a show to get an inside look at how entrepreneurs, who have build some pretty big start ups, got to where they are. I asked Guy Kawasaki to be the host and after some bouncing ideas back and forth we decided to go for it. Our first stop was to talk to Phil Libin, the CEO of Evernote (a great app.)
Phil makes some very important points, good advice to all who set out to build a business large or small, such as:
“If you’re an entrepreneur for the right reasons — and really there’s only one right reason, which is to change the world a little bit — now is the best time in history to be an entrepreneur”
And that tells you why I decided to produce this show. You know from my series “Advancing Your Photography” that I love to bring real insight and tips from those who have mastered their craft. Now I’m taking that approach to the area of how to build a business. In fact the two areas join: A working artist is after all an entrepreneur in the full sense of the word.
Do I have stories to tell about how to get such a series launched! It is not easy, to say the least, you really have to believe in yourself and in your mission. Yesterday when I saw the first video published, I must say I was overcome with all the hard work, and persistence this has taken.
While filming a documentary on Tiger Sharks in the Bahamas a videographers rig was stolen by a Shark, it’s not the first time a shark has taken gear but this has been the most expensive at over $15,000. Watch the video to see it all unfold.
Mark Peters from Santa Cruz went on a fishing trip with his friends to catch some Tuna. They brought along a GoPro which they put into a custom built housing and the footage the got was unexpected and almost surreal. A beautiful flurry of Dolphins swimming right past the camera, tons of them!
Rémi Gaillard has hundreds of millions of views on Youtube because of his hilarious prank videos and in this one he is a walking speed camera, flashing people with a speedlite as if they are going too fast on the roads. Watch till the end to see what happens to Rémi, it’s a hilarious video.

Conan O’Brien, being the funny man that he is decided to rent the super slow motion cameras that were used in the London 2012 olympics and film some random stuff around the office. The resulting footage is hilarious, it’s true everything does look better in Slow mo.
Shooting with a big rig on a steadicam is no easy task and Larry McConkey did an amazing job filming the final scene of Hugo which lasts for almost two minutes. It’s an incredible one shot scene and in the video above you can see the finished scene and the behind the scenes shot (via a camera on top of the camera).
