    Since her husband took office Melania Trump has earned six figures from an unusual deal with a photo agency in which major media organizations have indirectly paid the Trump family despite a requirement that the photos be used only in positive coverage. President Donald Trump's most recent financial disclosure reveals that in 2017 the first lady earned at least $100,000 from Getty Images for the use of any of a series of 187 photos of the first family shot between 2010 and 2016 by Belgian photographer Regine Mahaux. It's not unheard of for celebrities to earn royalties from photos of...

    One of the giants of the photography world has killed off its last film camera. Canon has revealed it is ending sale of the EOS-1v, the last remaining model of film camera that the company sells. The Japanese giant began commercial sales of its first film camera, known as the Hansa Canon, in 1936. The news comes days after Leica revealed it was stopping sales of its M7, a hugely popular film camera - although it still sells two other models.

    Dubai's Julian Castaldi putting the final touches to an exhibition of Polaroids ___________________________________________________________________________________ Instant photography is cool again, says Dubai artist, Julian Castaldi “It’s for an office party,” quips Raj Thomas as he hands over his debit card in a Dubai store, in return for a “Polaroid” camera that’s made by Fujifilm. “I think we’ll have some fun with it for a few weeks before the novelty wears off.” The force of nostalgia is strong with instant cameras (which, no matter the brand, will always be referred to as Polaroids, just like every vacuum cleaner used to be known as...

    Canon announced Wednesday it would end sales of its EOS-1v, the last remaining model of film camera that the company has sold in Japan. The company’s film cameras, which symbolize Canon’s old-time roots, will come to the end of their 80-year history. As the sales of film cameras have been on a decline due to the spread of digital cameras, the company stopped the production of the EOS-1v in 2010 and currently is shipping its remaining stock. The company said it will continue to accept repair orders and other customer inquiries until Oct. 31, 2025, even after finishing selling the...

    These stunning images reveal the remains of a century old sunken ship that has been preserved beneath freezing Lake Superior. The ship looks almost exactly the same as the day it sunk beneath waves in 1911.At 60 metres long and built in Leith, Scotland in 1897, ‘The Gunilda’ sunk after it struck some rocks and could not be saved. Now, these stunning images have been captured 107 years after the sinking when a small group of divers revisited the vessel. Becky Kagan Schott and her team dove an incredible 270 feet deep to reach the Gunilda and photograph her remains....

    There's nothing like a bath at the end of a long day, and it's a tradition with some serious clout behind it. The ancient Greeks used 'the water cure' to promote their vision of healing the mind and body in tandem, while in the 19th Century, 'taking the waters' became something of an obsession. Doctors on both sides of the Atlantic prescribed hydropathy as a cure for everything from ulcers to hysteria, as well to-do urbanites flocked to al fresco hot spots. And it wasn't just quackery, either; even with the advances of modern medicine, recent research shows therapeutic bathing...

    From gaping steel and stone structures to overpasses crafted out of pieces of ancient rope, the world's most spectacular bridges have been unveiled. Globetrotters over at National Geographic Travel have selected 12 of the most awe-inspiring designs that span oceans, lagoons and sun-drenched canyons. If you've got a fear of heights, you might want to skip the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge in Zermatt, Switzerland, which stretches 1,620 feet, making it the longest suspension footbridge in the world.

    At the dawn of the 20th century, strides being made in technology were allowing for the impossible to become possible. One advancement was the development of color photography – which quickly took the world by storm. Images of Kings from far away lands, muddied war trenches and the most innovative automobiles came to life using a method developed by two French brothers in 1907 called the Autochrome Lumiere. It involved the use of materials considered archaic today, such as potato starch, and was extremely time consuming. But for decades, it was the only way photography could be seen in the...

    This tiny house has furniture folded inside its walls, mimicking the functionality of a Swiss Army Knife. The ninety-six-square-foot building, which cost just £35,000 to build, starts out consisting of a single white room with no decor in sight. But as the walls are unfolded its true functionality emerges. It has a bed that folds down and an ingenious kitchen area, complete with a hob, cupboard space and a table and chairs for entertaining guests. A bathroom, complete with a luxurious shower, can even be pulled out through a small gap in the wall.

    LORD of the Rings director Sir Peter Jackson is going from Middle Earth to the Western Front — transforming grainy footage of World War I into stunning 3D colour. The documentary announced on Monday is among dozens of artworks commissioned to commemorate 100 years since the end of the 1914-18 war. The New Zealander has restored film from the Imperial War Museum using cutting-edge digital technology and hand colouring. He paired it with archive audio recollections from veterans of the bloody conflict. Sir Peter said the aim is to close the 100-year time gap and show "what it was like...

    They say the best things in life are free, but try telling that to the art-lover who owns a Leonardo da Vinci or Vincent van Gogh masterpiece. World-renowned auction house Christie's has revealed its top 10 most expensive lots sold in 2017 including da Vinci's 500-year-old mystical masterpiece, Salvator Mundi, which was bought for an eye-watering $450,312,500(£342,182,751). An Andy Warhol painting, two pieces of work by Cy Twombly, Max Beckmann’s Hölle der Vögel and Fernand Léger’s Contraste de Formes all made it into the top 10 list after buyers battled it out in the auction room.

    I haven't posted any "Hiking California" threads in a while. I joined a couple of local MeetUp hiking groups and these folks move at a good clip, so not much time for photography. But it's great fun getting out with others with similar interests and very motivational. When I went to bed on Thursday (Jan 18, 2018), the local news said that there were 55 to 60 foot waves at Mavericks north of Half Moon Bay (this is not far south of San Francisco). So, when I woke yesterday morning and saw we had a glorious morning, I decided I...

    These are the stunning pictures that offer a rare bird's-eye view of the landscape across the United States. Photographer Jassen Todorov snapped the aerial images of rivers, lakes and mountains to show a different angle to American life than skyscrapers and fast food outlets. Some of the destinations that Mr Todorov has photographed from such a height include rock formations in Utah, the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Tiny Islands in Florida and Yosemite National Park. He said: 'I have been exploring the US from above for the past four years - I love flying and photographing remote locations - most of...

    This is the incredible moment a bubble transformed into a delicate snow globe, before freezing completely and shattering. Mesmerising footage shows a bubble balanced on a straw that quickly crystallises in sub-zero temperatures, creating a stunning swirl of delicate icy flakes. The clip captures ice crystals dancing along the fragile surface of the bubble before it collapses in on itself, all in just 14 seconds.
