Back in 2017, automotive filmmaker Al Clark and his team at OUTRUN filmed an impressive “0-400-0 km/h” commercial for Bugatti’s latest and greatest supercar: the 1500bhp Bugatti Chiron. Now, after years of online speculation, Clark is finally revealing how exactly they did it.

Before you say that it’s all camera trickery or aerial video, know this: it’s not. Though the commercial splices road footage with aerial shots and B-roll, they did actually film one continuous shot of the Bugatti accelerating from zero all the way up to 250mph (400kph), flat out.

You can watch the original commercial below:

So how

Dave Etchells over at Imaging Resource has released a fantastic breakdown the dives deep on exactly how camera makers—Olympus specifically—go about properly weather-sealing their cameras.

It was my younger years. I had just published work from the Sudanese Civil War, and the Editor-in-Chief of Germany’s GEO magazine, wrote that “Per-Andre risks life and limb for a good shot.” Basically, I presume he meant I was a young fool, who took on assignments very few in their clear mind would consider.

Then one day I found an airmail letter in my “snail”-mailbox: an official invitation by the Cuban government.

“What the hell,” I thought. Cuba? Really? The communist nemesis of the western world, a last bastion of Stalinist rule, and most certainly a nightmare for

As a celebrity portrait photographer and street artist, I am used to being quick when it come to the execution of photography.

I recently made a trip to Kolkata in India for a street art project, but while there, I took the time to do street portraits. I walked up to people and asked to shoot portraits of their faces.

Many people in Kolkata are really living in conditions we often can’t even imagine, so it was essential for me to bring a little piece of myself to them.

We started to make some portraits in the streets. All
