Lover’s Beach is a secluded beach with limited access that offers gorgeous views of the sea and surrounding rock formations.
Lover’s Beach is on the southern tip of Baja California where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meet. This beach is only accessible by boat, which means you have to take one of the many water taxis to get there. The boat ride is usually only a few dollars. When you reach the beach there is usually someone there to help you get off the boat (it can be a bit of an adventure), so be sure to have a couple of dollars to tip the guy who successfully gets you off the boat.
The locals on the beach will tell you not to swim on the far side of the beach and I would heed their advice. The waves are quite big and the tide is very strong. The waves are beautiful and you can get some pretty good photos of waves crashing against the rocks, but don’t be tempted to jump in. The other side of the beach is much more calm and is where most people are hanging out. You can snorkel, sunbathe, swim, or just relax with an ice-cold Corona.
As you can see from the photos there are numerous photo opts and I would recommend bringing your favorite camera and an underwater camera because you never know what you’ll see. Once you have had enough, wave to one of the water taxis and they will come in and swoop you up back to harbor to enjoy the rest of your day!

Last year, my wife and I visited the Parque Natural de Sintra-Cascais close to Lisbon. It was a gorgeous hike from some beautiful ruins to the most western point of the European mainland, Cabo da Roca.
His work has the anachronistic charm of hand-tinted photographs and the trippy flavor of rock. Sometimes too his portraits of Lana Del Rey, Kevin Parker and Jim James cross over to the territory of graphic design and pop art, skewing definitions of what a picture is. Neither are his views on photography straitlaced, as this exciting interview with Lomography proves.

A popular quote by photojournalist Ted Grant goes, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!" Indeed, the lack of vibrant color forces the viewer to see beyond what is on plain view and recognize the atmosphere surrounding a photograph. In this post, we've handpicked black and white shots taken in various situations and exhibit different moods.

We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about?

For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
