Two Way Lens and Hiroshi Watanabe

Two Way Lens proudly presents Hiroshi Watanabe.

I am very happy that I can add another outstanding photographer to my project Two Way Lens.

This month it is Hiroshi Watanabe. Hiroshi is born in Japan and lives now in Los Angeles. His body of work is so fascinating, captivating and beautiful. I admire it already for a long time and when Hiroshi agreed being part of Two Way Lens, I was totally happy and excited to find out what he will write to my three questions.

Now it's time to read it and make sure to visit also his website with much more work to find. There are so many wonderful portfolios to dive into and forget the time.

Have fun with the interview and his images.

Artists Opportunity- Photograph Caitlin Moe for her new Album Cover

Photograph Caitlin Moe for her new Album Cover.

Electric Violin virtuoso, singer and songwriter, Caitlin Moe has exploded on the music scene. She is writing and recording for her solo album, set for release late 2010. Her highly anticipated debut album has been described as "moody pop-synth with lots of crazy strings" and will be dropping this fall. She is looking for a visionary Talenthouse photographer to shoot her for the cover of the album, which will be distributed globally. The image captured in the cover shot should be mysterious and dramatic like her songs, fun and loud like her personality and should push the boundaries just like her violin playing…the shot should incorporate the violin in some artistic, out of the ordinary way.

Caitlin invites photographers to submit 2 of their best artistic shots that encompass the mysterious, dramatic and fun qualities she mentioned above. The selected photographer will be flown to NYC for the photo shoot, receive album credit and will be introduced to Caitlin's network of artists and musicians.

Submit your photos here

This creative invite is part of Talenthouse, a global platform for artists, providing opportunities for recognition, collaboration and compensation.
