From the Vocative YouTube Channel:

Kirill Oreshkin likes taking photographs. Selfies, landscapes, the usual stuff—except his shots are captured atop some of the world's tallest buildings.
 
Once Oreshkin gets as high as the stairs or elevator will take him, he often scales up scaffolding or other parts of the structure. The tallest building he has climbed to date is the Mercury City Tower in Moscow. At 338 meters (about 1,109 feet), it's the tallest in Europe. Oreshkin is one of Russia's extreme urban climbers, known to hang off the edge of buildings by only his fingers. He does all this unsupervised and without any safety gear.
 
"Using safety measures changes something—no one is going to recognize that you really risked your life," Oreshkin says, adding that he knows what he's doing is dangerous.
 
Oreshkin's hobby started in 2008, when he began climbing to the roofs of homes and buildings in his neighborhood. He still doesn't do any particular physical training, since he says it's all about having the right mentality. He claims he was nervous about heights at first, and had trouble standing on the edge, which he now does with ease.
 
"It's no longer about overcoming myself," he says. "I just really like doing it. I like to look and study the city from different viewpoints."
 
Climbing has become second nature to him. "What's going through my head when I'm up there? Nothing special," he says. "I just try to think about hanging tight and staying alive."

From the Profoto YouTube Channel:

From Photoshelter:
 
Today, allotting time to your online marketing efforts is essential, so don’t waste the precious time you do carve out for it. Rather than taking guesses about what you should post, implementing a well thought-out strategy and solid plan will help yield a larger online audience, and ultimately drive more business.
 
In this webinar, professional photographer and digital marketing expert Rosh Sillars will join Allen Murabayashi to discuss tips, tricks, and secrets on how you can create a killer social marketing strategy, reaching new audiences and engaging your followers.
 
Rosh will answer your questions such as:

  • How do I develop a proper workflow for my social media channels?
  • Is Facebook still worthwhile?
  • Why use Twitter vs. Instagram vs. Facebook?
  • Is spending on Facebook ads worth it?
  • What kind of content should I share with my online audience?
  • What tools can I use to optimize my online workflow?

Date: Wednesday, March 26th
Time: 4:00pm Eastern
 
Register Now for the free webinar.


 
Last month B&H posted a great video by the Chicago-based Bob & Dawn Davis Photography called "Speedlites: The Power and Possibilities." Somehow this video initially slipped under my radar – so I'm really glad I found it today.
 
The video is about 2 hours long but is certainly worth watching if you've got a pair of Canon Speedlites and you're looking for inspiration.
