About once per year, one of the rare Nikkor 6mm f/2.8 lenses out there pops up on eBay when some camera shop or another picks one up. The price ranges from $60K to $160K and it’s gotten to the point where we usually just ignore the listings because… well… we’ve covered them enough times.

We’ve shared an interview with him and even featured a short behind-the-scenes video of him explaining his process a bit. But Nikon recently released a comprehensive collection of videos that will tell you just about everything you might want to know about Clark Little and his beautiful big wave photography. Read more…
Out of tragedy, a small ray of light and corporate kindness shines through today. The eruption of Japan’s Mount Ontake on September 27th took many hikers by surprise, claiming at least 56 lives. One of them was 66-year-old photography enthusiast Kazuo Wakabayashi.
