A few weeks ago I discovered iTunes U, not that it was hard, I knew it was there, I had just never used it.
I started to look around and found a few interesting educational collections. I found a History of Architecture, Volcanos, Justice, and Masters of Photography.
The Masters of Photography collection contains a whole heap of videos showcasing photographers’ work from a series of National Geographic Live lectures.
So far I have found two photographers from this series whose work has made an impression on me – where I have just thought, “Those are some amazing photos”.
The first is Mattias Klum, a Swedish photographer who travels around the world for assignments.
In a few of the lectures from National Geographic, Klum talked about encounters he had with a female lion in India. Luckily, these lectures have made their way to YouTube.
Another is where he gets a rather personal welcome from Meerkats.
Below are some of his photographs. [I do not own these, they are Mattias Klum’s, I found them through Google Images.]
The other photographer is Steve Winter. Winter does some interesting things when out photographing subjects – he likes to use robots and camera boxes.
Here is one of the videos from National Geographic showing how he used the robots.
Here are some of Winter’s photographs. [Once again, I do not own them, I found them on his website.]
‘Cause seriously, look at the little baby cub. Isn’t he so cute?! This is a cause that I can support.
