OK, so I promised myself that I’d cut down on the Star Wars content. But I cant help it, there are just too many creative Star Wars geeks out there. So todays dose of Geekery comes from the Surfing Stormtrooper. This guy travels the world, to places like New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, and others, to see new places and surf around the globe. He then takes a series of images while wearing a stormtrooper helmet, ...

Talk about a gorgeous view! This little paradise is Alila Villas Soori, located in blissful Bali, Indonesia. The resort was designed by SCDA Architects and they did a great job, but honestly the place is so spectacular that they could have made the place out of old newspaper and I still would have been impressed. Here’s the breakdown from the resort’s website: “Alila Villas Soori combines stunning contemporary design, blissful comforts and Bali’s stunning landscape to offer ...

We at Chuknum always appreciate services and products in Kuwait especially when they are developed by young individuals outside the boundaries of a company. Anyway, a new website called “Photo Lenders” has just been launched by the talented Kuwaiti photographer Khalid Al-Abdulghafoor. The idea of this business is simple, instead of buying supplies for photo shooting, you can just rent them. Anything from high end lenses to lighting, photo lenders can offer you these supplies at ...

I love it when photographers think of things in a different way, like using photography to expose new dimensions and at the same time raise questions. This project called “You are What you Eat” is a clever approach by Mark Menjivar where he for three years travelled the world to capture a shot of refrigerators. Basically, he meets with different people from different backgrounds and with different professions, then goes and snaps a photo of their ...

I loved the new campaign on Tatler for the Fall collections. They took iconic designer collections and coupled them with iconic fashion legends. The whole concept is amazing as super creative and I have to hand it to them they way they implemented it with the models carrying the images of these icons, was the perfect choice. I would have hated to see them photoshop the faces in. The photographer, Robert Trachtenberg, described it as: “Taking ...

I’ve seen a lot of Rube Goldberg videos, but this has got to be my all time favorite! So for those of you who don’t know what a Rube Goldberg is, I’ll spare you the trip to Wikipedia. “A Rube Goldberg machine, device, or apparatus is a deliberately over-engineered machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor ...

I am an avid photographer so I love to carry my camera with me, but when I say camera I actually mean a huge tank like device that weights a heck of a lot more than Id like to admit. But I still love it and I can appreciate the fact that with great power comes great weight. Ok, enough with the lame heavy camera jokes. So back to the point, the camera is ...

This talented photographer is known as “The Flowerman” and he is based in Indonesia. Not much else is known about him as he seems to keep a low profile in his descriptions, but one thing is clear, he’s got talent! The images are breathtaking and the use of natural lighting to bring out an image is spectacular. His images really bring out the unique character of Indonesia and after seeing these photographs I’m dying to just ...

I recently posted about the iPhone SLR Mount that was sold by Photojojo, though it wasn’t the right product for me there’s one thing I forgot to mention and thats the fact that Photojojo is an amazing site with a store that sells products tailor made to fit any photographer’s taste. The products are creative and fairly priced for the most part, and the best part is that the items are so unique with so ...

Ever wondered how those stormtroopers in Star Wars are always busy working, no shifts whatsoever, their whole life is up on their feet and taking orders from their old man, Darth Vader. Strangely, in an alternative reality, an amazing photographer called Stéfan shot a picture a day for one year of stormtrooper toys. He comes out with the cleverest scenarios as he shows the humorous side of the stormtroopers and puts them in situations we never ...

I love TED videos because as their motto suggests “Ideas worth spreading” and truly if you are up for some serious inspiration watch the video below. Contemporary artist Shea Hembrey wanted to created a documentary of 100 artists from around the world by traveling and interviewing them. He then realized that takes a hell of time so he came out of a genius idea of which he become 100 artists at once. He creates fictional characters with ...

We don’t have to go to Mars to see aliens when we already have them in our beautiful White Sea. These amazing creatures swim deep in the cold waters of the White Sea and only precise lights and trained eyes can spot them as the photographer Alexander Semenov suggests. This is because, these creatures are almost transparent and what amazes me even more, most of the images you are about to see are of creatures as ...

I’d like to shed some light on an already bright photographer called Jill Greenberg, also known as the Manipulator. Born in Canada and raised in Michigan as early as the age of 2. Jill’s artistic background was noticeable even in the 5th grade where she created a stop motion video comprised on black and white photos. Considering she was born in 1967, that gives you an idea how amazing to see a person at a ...

“Green” and I thought it would be cool to feature beautiful things in life more often, beauty in a nature’s sense. Sure we love art, games, movies, etc. but the beauty of nature is unmatched. Here to shed light on a familiar animal Tigers, and we loooove tigers. Everything from the stripes to the color to the cat look. Besides the look, did you know that tigers are halfway through extinction (according to wikipedia). What ...

Before you freak out for a split second, this is photography and not real to some extent. Meet natsumi aka yowayowa camera woman, a Japanese woman who takes self portraits like never been seen before. Instead of the usual self portraits, natsumi takes it to the next level, all her photos show her flying mid-air, her feet off the ground and there is no blurry elements what so ever. Of course that is a photography technique ...
