Kevin Russ / A Traveling Photographer

Kevin Russ / A Travelling Photographer
Kevin Russ travels around the United States shooting photos with his iPhone, and lives mostly in his car. I guess that’s not really all that unique these days, but he’s quite good. This little documentary on him is worth a peek, watch below!




Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

    Really amazing photos, so don’t get me wrong here, but parts of the video does sound a little bit like an iPhone commercial.

      I saw that too but felt it had to be like that, as a way of encouraging productivity, shooting photos, with what little or lot you already have.

    Kevin Russ has been one of my favorites for years now, he was one of the first people I ever saw free lensing

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
