    CLEARWATER, Fla. - Thousands of new jobs are coming to every industry in Florida and it's all because of drones. “I can have fun and I can get paid wooh!” Shawn Morse typically gets that reaction when he sells drones to customers from his TB Drones and Hobby Store on Ulmerton Road. St. Petersburg College professors typically get that reaction too when they introduce students to careers with drones. Nearly every industry from emergency workers to realtors are turning to the high flying contraptions. “The industry is just going to blow up,” explained Program Coordinator Fred Tucker, who coordinates the...

    There have been some powerful photography series in the LGBTQ+ arts community over the last couple of years that beautifully capture an individuals identity and struggle coming into that identity in every single shot. The Identity Project is one such project, which is a photo series that allows people to discuss the labels they ascribe to their identity as part of the prep for the photos themselves. Then, of course, theres Leland Bobb and his famed Half-Drag series that takes headshots of drag queens with half of their face in drag and half without, capturing the split and synthesis of...

  • The photography of Trump's presidency is a huge break from Obama's

    The Verge ^ | April 2, 2017 | Sean O'Kane
    Many of the most iconic photos of Barack Obamas presidency came from Pete Souza, the official White House photographer. Granted extensive access to Obama, he shot the Osama Bin Laden war room photo, moments the president shared with Michelle Obama, the many famous images of the president interacting with kids, and countless more. These carefully composed photos so defined the public image of Obama that it nearly made Souza a household name. In its visual representation, as in so many other respects, the Trump administration has made a break with the past. Most of what we see of Trump comes...

    MOSCOW, September 25. /TASS/. The Officers of a Russia's non-governmental organization have blocked the entrance to the exhibition of the U.S. photographer Jock Sturges in Moscow in a protest against promoting his works, the organizations head, and chair of the Public Chambers defense commission, Anton Tsvetkov said on Sunday. "If considered in Russia, the works by Jock Sturges could be qualified as a crime." "Right, he could have become famous by good pictures, but remember, this man used to participate in crimes. And he likewise was brought to responsibility also in the United States, though later on was justified. But...

    It's been 2 1/2 months since the last birdy thread was posted. Florida is a bit too hot for this old man to get out and shoot much in high summer. However, today I had a visitor. A little blue heron was feeding on my front lawn. That seemed a tad unusual. There was also a flock of white ibis. This time of year the ibis begin to gather in larger and larger flocks preparing for their winter migration. I got a face shot of this youngster. Their eyes are cool Several weeks ago I saw a family of Florida...

Before Margolies came along, there was a little less love in this country for drive-through doughnuts and neon sombreros. But Margolies, 76, who died of pneumonia on May 26 in New York, spent most of his adult life seeking, snapping and celebrating the commercial imagery of Americas Main Streets and blue highways....
