Peek-a-boo Boudoir by Sarah Chatham

I found this website the other day and so an amazing photographer. What I really like about this photographer is that her aims is to help the “normal” woman to feel beautifully amazing. There is a lots of obvious touchup but nothing exaggerate.

She receive her client with a glass of champagne in her high class manfree studio. She have a large lingeries wardrobe, shoes and a collection of prop and furniture. Her staff include makeup artist and hairdresser.

I admire her work and passion. The final result photographic but also for her client self confidence is a big deal!

His website

His blog

I just discover this artist from the Digital Camera World Magazine and instantly felt in love with his work. Mikko is a self taught photographer / graphic designer. He is specialized in landscape but I also saw different kind such nature and people on his blog.

I love the mystery behind his photographs. The game of mist and light are splendid. I’m wonder if he used the zone system for some of his shot or it is only digital manipulation. I’ll ask him !

Here are few of my favorite photograph from his gallery

Damn, I writing this reference while I’m still under the influence of this 17 yrs old artist !!!! The shock is intense !!!! I don’t know where to start…

Her artwork is simply wonderful, her skill behind the camera, in front the camera AND in front of the computer are absolutely phenomenal. The originality and versatility is a real pleasure to look at.

Cristina is specialized in self-portait some of her photographs remind me the work of Steve McCurry, The Afghan girl. While other looks more like Cindy Sherman, Ruven Afanador or Manuel Brule.

The final product left me out of word ! You must check this out here.

Here are only few of her photographs among an extraordinary collection.
