VIDEO: Bob Carey’s Tutu Project Self-Portraits

We’re very happy to share our short film featuring Bob Carey and the Tutu Project. This past year the Tutu Project has been featured in segments on CNN, The Today Show, Inside Edition, and countless other major media outlets. Few professional photographers have enjoyed the level of mainstream exposure Carey’s work has received.

A commercial photographer from Arizona with decades of experience, Carey’s wife Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer nine years ago. A self-portrait enthusiast who had previously transformed himself in several series of artistic images, Carey eventually began photographing himself in a pink tutu. Linda shared the images with her fellow patients while they were receiving treatment. Soon the Tutu Project was born, and all proceeds go to the Carey Foundation, which provides transportation, meals, and other daily needs to women undergoing breast cancer treatment. Images from the Tutu Project have been collected in the book Ballerina, published September, 2012.

Carey uses PocketWizard Plus III radios to execute his self-portraits taken on location around the United States. Stay tuned for a feature article on Carey’s career, gear, the Tutu Project, and more to be published on the PocketWizard blog.

Images and prints from the Tutu Project can be found at the Tutu Project site. Ballerina, other Tutu Project gear, and donation information can be found here. Bob Carey’s photography can be seen at his site. You can also see the video on Vimeo and YouTube.

Dan Bailey’s Mountain Biking Self-Portrait

Dan BaileyWe’ve profiled photographer and adventurer Dan Bailey before, and now he’s back with a post about the creation and inspiration behind his recent mountain biking self-portrait.

Inspired by a photo he saw by Australian photographer Tim Arch, Dan set out to try to make his own. After finding the perfect spot, Dan set up his camera and lights on the side of the trail and used his PocketWizard Plus III triggers to remotely fire the camera. That way he could carry one unit with him on his bike and, with some luck, fire the camera at exactly the right moment.

In under 30 minutes, Dan had gotten himself an awesome shot and probably plenty of bug bites.

Read the full post and check out his site for more adventure photography. Nice job, Dan!

Tyler Brown’s Bike Rig

Tyler Brown is taking a photo a day for 366 days in order to improve his off-camera flash skills and he’s not shying away from trying anything! He’s tried his hand at product photography, self-portrait, freezing motion and plenty more and he’s still got over 150 days to go. Here’s his account of Day 179 – The Bike Rig.

The inspiration for The Bike Rig shot comes from my life long love of bicycles. I had planned this shot out in my head many months before I even owned all the gear I needed to make it.
