As we enjoy the final days of summer, we would like to share with you a recent project from our very own Mr. Kyle Jiron. Bringing a unique approach to a historic city, he was able to capture the beauty of Washington D.C. in a way that even residents – who long ago grew acclimated and bored with the monuments – can appreciate.

In a highly publicized move, Facebook recently acquired the popular photo-sharing app, Instagram, for roughly $1 billion in cash and stock. The profitless photo-sharing app that originated in San Francisco now has upwards of 30 millions users after being independently active for a mere 551 days. For most of this time, the app was exclusive to iPhone users. All this puts the death of so-called “old media” in perspective; in comparison with the app, the New York Times is reportedly worth $970.22 million.
After several months of work, we would like to announce the launch of Sibat Magazine with our Spring issue for 2011. Continue reading

I couldn’t help but feel like Dauphin’ s Earn Your Title “Photographers” was pointed in my direction, mostly because I’ve taken pictures less than two times since the year has started, so here you go Dauphin, here are my snow day pictures, all of which are post-edited, of course. (We can’t all be perfect like you.) Continue reading
Today is a perfect day to take some amazing pictures. All you people with cameras that want to call yourselves “photographers”, now is your chance to prove yourself. Here’s a couple pictures I took this morning (no post-editing). Take this as a challenge, a call to action, an insult, or whatever it takes to motivate you. If you do shoot today, drop us a link to your pictures in the comments!
Over the weekend, our photography team had the privilege of doing a shoot with Jerome Vorus of Alexandria, Virginia. Mr. Vorus, a 19-year-old college student & photographer, has received much publicity of late concerning his multiple encounters with law enforcement. On several occasions, he has been harassed/detained by law enforcement for taking pictures in a public place, which is not a crime. With this experience, we plan to work in the future to make people more aware of their legal rights as photographers. This time around, we decided to shoot in Georgetown, but there will definitely be much more to come from us… Continue reading
Just going keep sharing my pictures periodically until I figure out what else I can do with them… enjoy with the track below! Continue reading
This photography project was inspired in-part by Thierry Guetta, a man who spent years of his life videotaping and documenting everything he saw. He later became a street-artist, influenced by the likes of Banksy and other high-profile artists. In the spirit of his work, I kept my camera with me all day, attempting to capture as much as I could. I too am lucky to have personal relationships with many influencers, and I cannot thank them enough for making me better, but I will try anyways. Thank-you BasedGod.
