Jan Steinhilber photographs the De Tomaso Pantera GTS Fink for Ramp magazine’s Classic Edition

“This car is legendary, so I did not hesitate a second when I was asked if I could shoot it for Ramp magazine’s Classic Edition,” says Jan Steinhilber of photographing the De Tomaso Pantera GTS Fink, “even though it was January in northern Germany, which means little to zero chance of sun. But who needs sun anyway if you have a 600hp Nascar engine sitting right behind the driver’s seat…”

Craig Cutler photographs rare blues record for The New York Times Magazine

Last week’s New York Times Magazine cover story focused on the mysterious Elvie Thomas and Geeshie Wiley, two early-20th-century musicians who, in the words of the magazine, “changed American music and then vanished without a trace.”

For the cover image, the magazine asked Craig Cutler to photograph a rare copy of Wiley’s record “Last Kind Word Blues,” which is owned by music collector Chris King. “King’s record is one of fewer than 10 surviving copies of the three known Paramount releases from Wiley and Thomas, notes the Times Magazine’s photo blog.

“People in the story talked about this record as being the holy grail of blues collecting,” Amy Kellner, a photo editor at the magazine, says in a blog post on the cover, adding that it is “one of the only physical clues to these two women.”

Read the story, written by John Jeremiah Sullivan, here.

Art Streiber photographs Eva Shockey for historic Field & Stream cover

Field & Stream asked Art Streiber to photograph hunting celebrity and TV host Eva Shockey for the May “What’s Next” issue, the first time in 30 years that a woman has been featured on the cover of the 119-year-old magazine. The “What’s Next” issue offers expert opinions on what the future holds for hunting and fishing.

“The steady and growing number of women who are becoming hunters is really transformative for the outdoor sports,” Anthony Licata, editorial director of Field & Stream, said in a press release for the May issue. “As a spokeswoman for that change, Eva was a clear choice for the cover of our ‘What’s Next’ issue.”

Below, Art’s portraits of Shockey, plus stills from a behind-the-scenes video of their cover shoot. Read the Field & Stream interview with Shockey here.

Doug Menuez to talk “Fearless Genius” at Photo Independent in Hollywood

Photo Independent_Doug Menuez

.

It’s photography-fair season in Los Angeles, and the one we’re most looking forward to is Photo Independent. The fair, scheduled for April 25 to 27 at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood, will feature images by Doug Menuez from his groundbreaking project “Fearless Genius: The Digital Revolution in Silicon Valley 1985–2000.” Doug will also be part of a panel discussion exploring “issues the project raises about challenges to innovation we face today, especially in regards to education and investment.”

Photo Independent runs at the same time as the esteemed Paris Photo fair, and Photo Independent’s organizers have gone all out to attract collectors who are headed to Paramount Studios for that larger fair. Specifically, they’ve plastered billboards and benches in the area with one of Doug’s signature “Fearless Genius” images: “Russell Brown in Costume, Mountain View, California,” 1989). Who could resist that (partial) face?

“Girls & Boys” by Liz Von Hoene

Liz Von Hoene recently photographed an exclusive online editorial for Schön! magazine that takes place in a dreamy countryside setting, with fashion by Diesel, Paul Smith, Preen, and others and styling by her longtime friend Gus Romero, who kindly shared with us a little background on the project.

“Liz has been my friend for 18 years now!!!” Gus marvels. “We have worked together since the very beginning of our careers, and Liz has always been a source of inspiration because of her creativity and tenacity.

“At the same time,” he says, “working with Liz is playing.”

Gus and Liz have shot some amazing editorials over the years, and he was keen to collaborate on a new project with her. As luck would have it, Schön offered to give him some pages in their new issue, so Gus called Liz to brainstorm.

“We were both excited immediately,” he recalls. “We talked about a sweet, magical, and nostalgic representation of a traveling band—a subtle touch of the magic of Alice in Wonderland, plus the carefree spirit of young musicians.”

He and Liz wanted to “keep it in the family,” so they enlisted Gus’ makeup-artist friend Paco Blancas and the talented hairdresser John Ruidant to work with them. Meghan McNeer, Liz’s righthand woman, was also on hand to make sure everything went smoothly.

Below, “Girls & Boys…”
