    It seems, that creativity isn't dead.

    RT... I think you could build an amazing website for photographers... linking us up to all the cool stuff out there! I've said it before... you do an awesome job of bringing a lot of interesting material before our eyes!

    I read PetaPixel for my "what's cool in the photo world" fix.

    That's nice.

    Perhaps Panther might be interested in one-upping PetaPixel... and might prosper from that. :wink: Just a thought, that's all.

    The blog is well worth a look if you ask me.

    It shows that what the guy did wasnt really that sophisticated or necessarily required huge photoshop skills. It was more a combination of imagination, ingenuity and attention to detail.

    I don't know whether to be inspired or just pack it all in now! Either way, this guy deserves praise. A fantastic display of real creativity.

    Yeah... the kid is doing awesome stuff... putting way more energy and creativity into making these images than the vast majority of people with cameras (including most so-called "pros"!!!) would EVER be capable of.

    If he keeps at it, and he desires it, he can earn an excellent living with his skills and efforts. I applaud this (very) young man's work.

    Even in this mature and vastly over-populated (and under-talented) "professional photographer" marketplace, there is still opportunity for those with exceptional talent, creativity, and - especially- boundless energy and motivation. This kid displays all of this right now... and is likely to continue doing so. That is the key to success as a commercial photographer in this very challenging time for image makers wishing to earn a good living from their work.

    Red Tail -Thanks again for the many pearls your toss our way. I look forward to and thoroughly enjoy them. Zev is indeed an amazing lad. It's impressive to see how much he has matured as a photographer, photo editor, and artist over the 2 years documented here.

    PS: I followed "related link" at the bottom of the article to Surreal Self-Portraits by Noell S. Oszvald. Though much older she follows surrealism down a different path and has a substantial body of work too.

    Really nice work! Creative use of combined images and very well executed. Judging by his blog he's a pretty smart kid, wish him the best of luck in whatever he chooses to do with himself :2thumbs:
