    Don't know if this guy has been mention in this forum before but i just found out about his work today. He has a very good portrait portfolio, but the thing that caught my attention is that ALL of his work is done with a Panasonic G3 and a Oly 45mm. I don't think most people would believe that his photos came from a G3 if not for the EXIF data.
    Ok, ok,... i know there is a lot of post color correction and adjustments but in the same level as others that use so called "pro cameras".

    He's russian photographer Sean Archer ( aka Stanislav Puchkovsky ).

    Take a look at his photostream at Flickr (slightly NSFW):

    Oh my god! There aren't that many beautiful women in a 500 mile radius of where I live. The shots are great but the models (and the assistants who make them up) make them compelling. I suppose picking them is a talent in and of itself. Here's a challenge. Extraordinary portraits with ordinary looking people.

    Nice portfolio! I love shooting Russian models, they're a lot of fun and they don't flake on you especially on a paid gig!

    I came across this guy during my short stint on fotoblur. His models are just friends and acquaintances -- I know, he's one lucky guy. But on top of that, he only started doing photography in 2011, I believe. And he uses window lighting. Pure talent, I guess.

    That would be the 100 Strangers Project on Flickr. There are quite a few extraordinary portraits on there (and lots of mediocre ones).

    Sean Archer? That's the FBI agent's name in "Face Off"!! Played by John Travolta/Nicolas Cage.

    On a more serious note ... what a photostream!!! :)
