Behind The Scenes Of The Dawn Wall Film — Red Bull on Youtube “Rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson show you the behind the scenes to the Dawn Wall documentary” 

Meet California — a commissioned film of a road trip through California. The British Journal of Photography in partnership with Visit California commissioned the film. Four photographers were selected to create “a new personal project that would shed light on the lesser-known sides of the state.” Interestingly, none of the featured photographers are based in California. Instead, they’re from Portland, Toronto, London, and Paris. Read the BJP’s article and watch the film as well as behind the scenes footage of the film here.

A Drink with Photographer Steve McCurry — NBC Nightly news published a 15 minute interview with Steve McCurry. It’s worth watching and McCurry shares some great photography insights from his over 30 years of professional experience.
