I Photograph People Making Love In Public Places

in Design Nerd by

Ok, yes, this title is definitely a clickbait and I apologize to anyone who thought they would now get to see pictures of people having sex in the public space – if you really wanna see that though, I’m sure you know where to look for it 😉

I wasn’t lying though, I do take pictures of people making love, but do you really have to be naked to make love? Isn’t a hug, a kiss, or even just a smile, just as much a part of love making?

So for all the hopeless romantics out there, here’s a collection of lovebirds I caught right in the act…

This seems hearfelt (Montréal)

When a kiss on the cheek is worth a thousand “I love you”s (Montréal)

In French, love is a masculine word (Montréal)

They said goodbye here… (Paris)

… and then again there (Paris)

Exactly one week after the November 13th attacks. Love wins. (Paris)

Not even afraid – Place de la République, memorial for the November 13th attacks (Paris)

Hold on tight during the bus ride (Montréal)

Lovers de la Montagne (Montréal)

I think she found the assistance she needed (Montréal)

A kiss on a hand may be quite sentimental but… (Paris)

And suddenly it’s like there’s no one around (Montréal)

What’s warmer than a hug? A hug with a scarf. (Montréal)

The hour seems happy indeed (Paris)

I’ll take a waffle and a kiss (Paris)

There’s something quite sexy and romantic about a Vespa… (Montréal)

Night club love (Paris)

A good hug slows time down (Montréal)

Classic “where do I put my hands?” problem (Montréal)

You saw nothing (Montréal)

Love is beautiful in black and white

I Keep Trying To Photograph My Girlfriend But She Won’t Let Me

in Design Nerd by

I love my girlfriend, and I’m a photographer, so I love to take pictures of my girlfriend, right? Problem is, she hates it when I do: whenever I raise my camera and point it to her, she finds a way to hide her face.

So here’s a series of me trying to get a good shot of my girlfriend. And failing at it.

The drama of a photograph

I Photograph The Homeless By Becoming One Of Them

in Design Nerd by

I’m inundated with emails on a daily basis. “What camera do you use?”, “How do you obtain the black background in your images?”, “Will you employ me as your assistant?” to quote but a few. The questions are varied, but all revolve around a central theme… they see the apparent “success” of my images and are determined to experience a piece of that for themselves. I don’t blame them. I was exactly the same seven years ago. My mind was awash with images. Revelling in art for the first time in my life. It was exciting, promised travel and adventure and who knows, maybe some success and notoriety. Looking back, I’d look for short cuts by asking other photographers, whose work I admired at the time, the very same questions I am now being asked. I was infatuated with the notion of being “a photographer” so wanted that “success” fast.

Looking back, none of that stuff mattered. Sure, technical ability is pretty fundamental to any vocation but it means nothing without passion. You can’t teach it. Life “happens” and it’s through those experiences that hopefully you come through the other side having learned something.

Love “happened” to me. Back then, that love was the motivation for everything I did. Running through the Vatican to buy a Rosary for her dying mother. Feeling her sense of faith and compassion for the less fortunate. Without knowing it, I took pieces from her. They remain with me to this day. So, now, when you see a Lee Jeffries image it’s not a document of the life of a homeless person. It’s much more than that. It’s a metaphysical testimony of humanity, faith and spirituality. It’s born from love and a connection to another human being. Her… and the homeless people I meet.

Everybody wants to be a photographer. Open your heart and you may just get your wish.

I Photograph Black Shelter Cats Because They’re The Last To Get Adopted And First To Be Euthanized

in Design Nerd by

I photograph black cats at the West Los Angeles animal shelter. Black cats have the lowest adoption rates and the highest euthanasia rates. With this photo series, I tried to showcase their personalities to counter the belief that black cats are bad luck.

Black cats are awesome and the Los Angeles shelters have plenty available for adoption this Halloween season.

Hair-Raising Supercell Thunderstorms Animated from a Single Photograph by Mike Hollingshead

in Travel Nerd by

Do you love watching the skies roll from calm fluffy clouds to violent dark storms? Storm chaser and photographer Mike Hollingshead surely likes to do this. When you go to his website “Extreme Instability”  you’ll find his amazing works that include a great collection of GIFs featuring the scary and jawdroppingly massive supercell storms in perpetual action. These HD clips are just single photo GIFs that Hollingshead entirely processed to move through Photoshop.

Supercells are identified by their deep and persistent rotating updraft called a mesocyclone which makes them unique compared to other types of thunderstorms. The Supercell is known to be the least common type of thunderstorm and it’s a good thing because just by looking at this massive superstorm you’ve already guessed that its not going to do any good.

It has high propensity to produce severe weather. So imagine if you’ve got ingredients like large hail, torrential rainfall, strong winds, and weak to strong tornadoes mixed in one pot, you’ll cook one helluva monstrous natural phenomena that you call a supercell. That’s totally not fun unless you just want to watch it like watching  a gray cotton candy twirled around a stick until it goes huge, fluffy, and ready to eat. In real life, that cotton candy will eat you instead.

Supercells can evolve from a regular thunderstorm or just pop out from nowhere already packed with power. These storms are formed primarily by low pressure, warm, humid air under a colder upper layer. The warm air rises and clashes with the descending cold air, creating powerful convection currents.

There are a variety of supercell types including classic, high precipitation which is usually found in arid climates, low precipitation for moist climates, and miniature. However, describing a current supercell’s type can be difficult because it is possible that it’ll transform from one type to another during its life cycle.

Supercells are usually found in the Great Plains of the United States in an area called Tornado Alley. You can also witness these storms in Tornado Corridor which covers areas in Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil. However, supercell occurrences aren’t limited to these places. For example, a supercell had hit Perth, Australia on March 22, 2010 and it is known as one of the worst in the city’s history leaving dented cars, smashed windows, and a more than 100 million dollar damage due to the storm’s 6-centimeter hail stones.

Supercells in Asia occur usually in Bangladesh, West Bengal, and northeast India from March to May. There’s one event in Bangladesh where a supercell’s massive tornado hit a district that killed 20 people and injured 200. In Europe, Belgium got struck by a supercell in 2009 which was known as one of the worst storms in those recent years leaving uprooted trees on motorways and blown trains off the rail tracks.

These supercells that you see in GIFs look nothing but harmless thick clouds, but throughout the American  history, they’ve been primarily responsible for the major tornadoes that have demolished  parts of the country. Supercells are like a family of tornadoes (or hailstones) that pass by to greet you but leave you with great damage. Maybe, it’s better if they just safely stay animated for our amusement.
