Crash Taylor has launched a site and series called “The Still Image with Crash Taylor” where he features an indivual image from a photographer, then ask the photographer the story behind the photo (how it lit, which equipment was used, how it was post processed, etc.).

There are a lot of very cool images there already, and I love reading about the “back story” on them. Crash invited me to talk about the image you see above on this new site, and share the story behind the photo, and you can read it right here.

Congrats to Crash on launching this inspiring new site, and thanks Crash for the honor of  being a very small part of something very cool.

  1. Thanks for the post.

    It’s a great website. So much to read. It’s always good to read about the creative process, why, how, and post as well that goes into making a great shot.

  2. Wow, I am going to book mark this site under my favorites tab for easy return.

  3. Great tip! Copy and paste into my Google reader. Great shot of the footballer, Scott! I´m a bit scared of him…:-) Keep up the great work on the blog.

  4. Crash has a great nack for creating these fantastic and inspiring resources. Your readers should also take a look at his “Interviews by Crash Taylor” series – very interesting, educational and inspiring.

  5. Scott, let’s offer a NSFW tip for Crash’s site. I’m sitting at my desk getting my morning Kelby fix and then on to Crash’s site when “Whoa”, let hope those that monitor my companies web usage didn’t see that. Great site though!

  6. Crash is the best wedding photographer in the UK, no contest IMO. I don’t follow many wedding blogs, but his work is incredible.

  7. Another bump for adding a NSFW note to this post. There’s a little nudity in there!

    But a GREAT site!

    Thanks Scott!

  8. Thanks for the awesome comments folks. Have lots of amazing imagery to post so stay tuned. Appreciate the kind words Alan and Simon.

  9. Yes, I bookmarked that site, too! Great stuff there! I’ll visit often!

  10. There was a quick typo in the word individual. Second sentence.

    I don’t need any backlash from anyone. Just an FYI to the webmaster.

  11. Incredible. Love the photography. What an inspiration.

  12. Pretty amazing photography, almost surreal.
    But I do like the shots that employ a real simplicity to the lighting as much as I like complicated lighting sometimes a reflector and naturally diffused light are all you need with DOP
    THanks for the link
