The Girl With 7 Horses is a creative project by photographer Ulrika Kestere that shows a girl traveling to various landscapes in search of her “invisible horses”:
Once upon a time there was a girl who had 7 invisible horses. People thought she was crazy and that she in fact had 7 imaginative horses, but this was not the case. When autumn came the girl spent a whole day washing all her clothes. She hung them on a string in her garden to let the gentle autumn sun dry them. Out of nowhere, a terrible storm came and its fierce winds grabbed a hold of all her clothes and all seven horses (authors note: since they are invisible they obviously didn’t weigh much). The girl was devastated and spent all autumn looking for each horse spread around the country, wrapped in her clothes.
If the first level of photo-geekiness is wearing USB cufflinks, and the second level is wearing camera cufflinks, then these mode dial cufflinks must be level three. Boy are these geeky. You can pick them for $50 on Amazon.
I’m a big fan of Threadless and the seemingly infinite stream of hilarious t-shirts designs that are constantly being created by its dedicated community. However, I haven’t been able to find many shirts designed specifically for photographers on the service. Yesterday I tweeted a request for links to photography related t-shirt designs, and received quite a large number of interesting responses. After looking through all the links tweeted in response, here are my favorites (click the shirts to go to where they’re sold):
#1: I Can’t Draw
One of the few photography-related t-shirts I was able to find on Threadless.
#2: Spray and Pray
Who cares what or how you shoot if you can put it through Photoshop it afterwards?
#3: Beware of the Photographer
If you’re not careful around me, you might get shot (or Photoshopped).
#4: Camera Display Panel
A great shirt to confuse non-photogs. See if you can trick people into believing they’re all math symbols.
#5: Smile Baby
#6: Instant Pool Party
Threadless shirts are always top-notch.
Another minimalistic design. Maybe it’s saying “Shoot from (or at) the hip”?
#9: 18% Grey
Amazing! A shirt that doubles as a gray card…
#10: photographer’s friend
Give this to your assistant and have him or her simply stand in for a picture.
#11: Photographer Grrl
#12: I Like To Flash People
#13: You are here, But I can fix that in Photoshop
#14: oh, crop
This shirt is a chance to show just how nerdy you are.
For those of you who are obsessed with Flickr.
#17: What the f-stop
#18: Camera Girl
#19: Photographic Memory
A pretty minimalistic design by Chase Jarvis. Become the lens.
#21: Sunny 16 Rule
If you ever forget the rule, just look in the mirror.
Many of the shirt designs I found simply had a camera hanging around the neck. Here are six of them:
Clever, but Text
Most of the shirts I found were clever, but only contained text. I’ve collected some here, since I didn’t want to waste space displaying too many shirts with only text on them:
- Fix it in post
- photographer (fә-tŏǵrә-fәr)
- It’s okay, I’m a photographer
- I’m a photographer, not a tourist
- I’m a photographer… What’s your excuse?
- I shoot people with my Canon
- Will take pictures for food
Here are a list of online stores, shops, and merchandise pages that offer photography-related t-shirts:
- What the Duck Merchandise
- Cafe Press: Search for Photographer and Photography
- RedBubble: Search for Photographer and Photography
- Rumplo: Photography and Photographer tags
Update: Received another interesting design via email, called Photoshoplifter. Check it out!
Update 2: Here’s yet another design emailed to us: Still Need The Vision
