How You Pay Farmers to Watch Their Crop Shrivel Up and Die

Here at the PhotoShelter office, we see a lot of awe-inspiring photography from our members all the time. Don’t think this goes unnoticed! We keep tabs on the work we love, email photos around that we find inspiring, and feature those we believe are making a difference with their work. The talent that we see keeps us motivated to do our best everyday.

We wanted a way to share with everyone who appreciates a good photograph the talent that exists in the PhotoShelter community, and so we began creating the idea of Selects. Selects is a bi-weekly email showcasing awesome imagery from PhotoShelter members. Selects was created with photo editors and photographers in mind – so sign up to discover new talent, get inspired for your own shoots, or simply see something new right in your inbox.

Moving forward, we’ll feature work we come across as well as images our members submit.  Find out how to submit your images here.

And, opt-in today to begin receiving Selects!

Here’s a story Paolo Woods and I worked on. It’s supposed to be a funny look at our sad global economy, not another poor sad Haiti story, but unfortunately headlines are beyond photographers’ control.

A slideshow of my photos published on Foreign Policy with a great story by @TheOChronicle about the US farm bill & Haitian & Arkansas rice farmers. 
Before going up in a crop duster to shoot photos, I ate a pile of bacon and a large coffee from a gas station. I was sick within a couple minutes of takeoff but managed to avoid losing my classy breakfast until after we landed.
