My wife loves miniature figures. She used to have whole doll houses filled with little figurines and furniture. And I really love Beauty and Fashion photography. Whenever I find creative images of miniature figures on the internet I always have to show them to her. With our two hobbies combined, my collection of inspirational images became the beginning of this project.

1MP’s February winners range from a grinning praying mantis to a powerful mother & son image, with steel wool and silhouettes in between.
onemillionphotographers – the global gallery project and competition – is delighted to announce its five Shot of the Month prize-winners for February, awarded throughout last month.
Photographer Tara Ward’s wonderfully playful close-up of a praying mantis, seemingly posing for the shoot, was chosen as the MOO winner. Tara’s insect friend won her a set of photographer business cards with MOO’s unique Printfinity technology that lets you print a different image on every card in the pack. Some wallet-sized wow factor for photographers – allowing you to carry your portfolio in your pocket.
Photographer Rachel Gouk picked up the Virb award with this beautiful nocturnal view of the Rialto Grand Canal in Venice, winning a new portfolio website, fully customisable and with unlimited storage, pages and a blog. Rachel points out that carrying a reliable tripod while backpacking is often impractical, so any flat and stable surface has to do: “Walking up the Rialto Bridge, I set my camera on the stone, the lens just extended over the edge. The streetlights had just come on, gondolas slowing down. This photo sums up my memories of Venice – all colours and clear skies.”
Fracture’s February winner was photographer Robert Totoonchie, for this incredible steel-wool spinning act of pyromania. The prize? A 15×20” photo printed directly onto glass by the guys at Fracture of course! Rob explained how he achieved the shot by using an egg beater packed with steel wool attached to a 6-foot steel lanyard that he’d made: “I set the camera up, framed the shot, and used an intervalometer to give myself enough time to get in place and start the steel wool on fire.” Rob added that he chose to set up over water not only for the effect, but also for safety. No need to be starting fires whilst taking prize-winning shots!
Photographer Freddie Ardley scooped February’s Peak Design award with his moody mountain silhouette capture, taking away Peak Design’s Leash and Cuff camera connection system. Freddie told of how he’d almost discarded the image before deciding to submit it to onemillionphotographers in the People category: “I didn’t think much of it after looking back as the sun really blew out the detail. However after spending a while in Lightroom and darkening the image, I realised the lack of detail gave it a really powerful contrast. Dodge and burn completed it by highlighting the horizon and the figures.”
And the month was rounded off with photographer Javier Arcenillas winning the thinkTANK Photo prize – a Digital Holster 20 camera bag. Javier’s powerful “Mother & Son” shot submitted to the onemillionphotographers’ Reportage category won over the thinkTANK judges not only for the strength of the image but also the social importance of the underlying story.
Each month, onemillionphotographers serves up an array of awesome photography prizes – from camera clips and portfolio websites, to prints on glass and holster camera bags. Any photographer with an image in the Gallery is automatically in the running, as all image submissions are eligible for all prizes, all the time. With six current awards, there’s a prize-winner roughly every five days. Browse the 1MP Gallery and learn about how to submit your work at www.onemillionphotographers.com.
The golden era of Old Hollywood has always fascinated me. The gentlemen who defined the word dapper and the women who embodied grace and beauty is still as appealing today as they were all those years ago. The term classic is there for a reason. Without even trying, the entire era was romantic; the looks, the subtleties, the dialect. I wanted to revisit this era with a couple who I felt not only had the look but the presence as well. Ana and Ryan carry themselves with respect, and it doesn’t hurt they are totally in love with one another!
After researching our area, I found an old historical home that dates back to 1784. It is remarkable still in tact with so much character within the walls. The house is truly breathtaking and would be a perfect set for our photo shoot. It is isolated and situated way off the paved roads. When the models first arrived, their mouths dropped open at the beauty of this hidden gem. Score one for the photographer! We were able to get so many beautiful shots and really captured the essence of that long ago era.
We worry about money, power, status and the way the world perceives us. While we spend all of our energy succumbing to these, there’s people like you and me that are living parallel lives, except in a place where there’s miles of nothingness. The Omo Valley in Ethiopia, home to tribes like Mursi, Hamer, Benna has been one of the most surreal places I have had the fortune of experiencing.
A selection of shots from the amazing aurora display on Thursday 27 Feb 2014. Photographs taken from around the Isle of Lewis, this was probably the brightest aurora I’ve ever seen.
I’m a spanish photographer & digital artist based in Madrid.
I’m Technician in Advertising Art by the CENP school of Madrid (2002), where I studied graphic design oriented to advertising and marketing campaigns, as well as analogic photography, which started attract powerfully my attention and want to continue learning more about this artistic technique.
After that, I developed my professional future mainly as 2D Artist for mobile, IOS and pc games, specializing in the “Pixelart” technique, but while I continued developing my personal work with digital art photography, and I discovered that this was really the best way to express myself and everything else surrounds me through a kind of parallel reality.
In 2011 I finished the Master of Expert in fashion and advertising photography by the CES school and the UCM in Madrid, specializing in this kind of photography.
Anyway, I love to make a mix between Fashion & Fantasy Photography, taking the better from both of them, and giving a touch of pictorical or illustration to my images.
My photographic interests: cool pictures, weird, disturbing, intriguing, interesting, dreamy, creative and, above all, beautiful images, capturing the ephemeral moment, the feeling, the attitude and character of the people or concepts to portray.
