MARIUS VIETH

Cick on the title above to read more about Marius Veith's inspiring journey from 9 to 5 market researcher to full-time photographer. He says "The truth is, my old job might pay well and offer me a high standard of living, but that’s not what I want in life. I don’t care for money, nor do I care for materialistic happiness. True happiness can’t be bought. It’s the simple things in life, like breathing the air, looking at the stars, eating good food, laughing and sharing moments with wonderful people. That’s why I love life and art". Check out some of his now award winning photos at www.mariusvieth.de.

HUMANS OF NEW YORK

When Brandon Stanton lost his job as a bond trader he took up photography. His pictures of strangers on the streets of New York became huge hits on Tumblr and Facebook – and now his book, Humans of New York has debuted at No 1 on the New York Times bestseller list. Truly inspirational. 

ROSIE HARDY

Rosie Hardy shot to fame by... well shooting herself to fame. After doing some amazing portraits of herself, friends and family Maroon 5 stumbled across a picture of hers on Flickr that was perfect for their new album. The rest is history. She's got some great pictures on her sight, especially her fine art work. Just goes to show if you've got talent and explore your passions anything's possible. Very inspiring. Don't think i'll be doing the half-naked shoots of myself though... not quite as appealing!
