Audrey, Transgender Woman
We applaud photographer Jimmy Fishbein for his work in helping the largely misunderstood LGBT Community tell their stories, and in this series specifically,  transgender woman over the age of 50.  Through their personal struggles with an issue that most of us take for granted,  these women have made significant contribution to ease the transition for the generations of  transgender people to follow.  These portraits from his ongoing series capture the story of each of these women in a way that words can not do alone.

Etc Creative has released their third in a series of six promotions focused on their company "Core Values."  This month's theme: REAL. Authenticity is the underpinning of this month's  image selection; everything about the work celebrates the beautiful  imperfections in everyday life. Nothing appears too styled or overworked, and yet, it's perfect. Here are some of our favorites.

Baby with a Mustache and Sideburns

A number of Workbook contributors were selected for Communication Arts 2016 Photo Annual. Stewart Cohen's Bearded Babies is one of several series to appear. Everything about these babies is perfect: the casting, the hair (facial) and makeup, styling, retouching, and of course, the photography.  The way in which the facial hair is "paired" with the babies' expressions and body language is just priceless.

For most of us, Labor Day means a nice long weekend and a barbecue marking the unofficial end of summer. Since the holiday celebrates the achievements of American workers, and most of us spend a good portion of our lives at work, we created a gallery of the hardworking American shot by some of the best photographers on Workbook. Check out Corporate/BusinessIndustry/Agriculture, and Medical/Healthcare galleries to see more amazing work-related imagery.

Workbook Custom Galleries

Night Trees Series

Custom Galleries on Workbook are a great way for a photographer or illustrator to add another dimension to their portfolios beyond commercial galleries. Testing out ideas and creating personal work are essential to driving a career forward, and it's no secret that creative buyers like to see different context in photographers' work. Some Custom Galleries are built as a series, others tell a story. Here are four that actually succeed at doing both:  Ethan Pines created a series called Night Trees showcasing landscapes throughout suburbia. Bill Mayer's Frogfolio is the  study  of a frog in which he appears to morph in both style and character. Paul Nordmann's US of HOOPS focuses on "hoops" mostly within an urban setting, and Jim Frazier tackles the questions surrounding how we go about Managing Money.  This post represents a small sample of the Custom Galleries throughout the Workbook site, and we'll continue to post them here on the Blog.
