Hotshoe covers from 1980s to present day
For my final guest post before Christmas at the World Photo Organisation and to mark the end of the year and the start of a new one, I asked the team at Hotshoe magazine to look ahead to 2013, rather than back at 2012, to comment on any trends in the world of photography and to pick out some up-coming events, photographers and works to look out for.
If you ever wondered who we were and about the history of this independent publication (first published in 1979) then follow this link Forward Thinking for some photos, comments and photos. There’s also a pre-Christmas competition to win a year’s subscription to Hotshoe magazine, just LIKE Hotshoe International Facebook page this week, see the end of the WPO post for details.
Enjoy the run up to the holidays and here’s wishing you all a healthy, happy holiday.

DON’T WORRY BE ‘APPY
More and more photographers, publishers and photo organisations are developing photo applications and eBooks for the iPad, iPhone and other digital devices. Today’s post covers two very different apps that may be of interest to anyone interested in documentary photography and travel, as well as photographers who want to improve their portraiture lighting techniques.
IVAN KASHINSKY AND KARLA GACHET
The first offering Short Stories: From Ecuador to Tierra del Fuego is by husband and wife team Ivan Kashinsky and Karla Gachet, two photojournalists based in Quito, Ecuador who recently completed a photographic journey through South America and created their first app for the iPad. The app is “a personal photographic journey exploring the diverse cultures of five countries in South America. Karla and Ivan traveled for seven months in Sancho, their trusty red jeep, documenting thirteen photo essays along the way, from the equator down to the farthest tip of the continent”. It is now available at the App store for $3.99. Short Stories iPad app is a joint production of Runaphotos and Lightbox Press, a new publisher of digital photography books.
“Grecco breaks down his legendary techniques with step-by-step instructions and diagrams for perfect lighting setups while inspiring his true art of portraiture.” A how-to app from celebrity photographer and director Michael Grecco whose book Lighting and the Dramatic Portrait: The Art of Celebrity and Editorial Photography is now available on iPad, iPhone, nook and kindle for $24.95.
The eBook is a completely updated version of his best-selling hardback (from 2006) and is available for $150. Grecco will also be leading a Hasselblad-supported workshop on the same topic from 28 March – 2 April in Hawaii. He said: “I am flattered to be able to say that this book has been described as The Lighting Bible – and we have created a special email address for Hasselblad readers (lighting@MichaelGrecco.com). Anyone reading the article can email us and we will send them a special ‘extra’ chapter that will not be found in the eBook.” See the complete news story on the photographer and book on the Hasselblad website. I’ve yet to see the book or app but it looks promising.
