Welcome Home — Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria
Lorelei Nelson is a Los Angeles based photographer of live and behind the scenes music.
Overall judges comments on this photo was that it “won out” due to the perfect timing of the shot and as we all know . . . “timing is everything!”
“I love music, and I love photography, and maybe a little bit of design. I’ve done a couple pieces of music artist double exposed into a landscape or cityscape.
One of my favorites is this piece of my close friend Elliot, in which I double exposed the portrait shot of him into a cityscape.” Benjamin Cliff
Laura Dunfield is a Vancouver-based photographer who specializes in live-music photography. “Being a musician myself, I saw an opportunity to mesh my career and my hobby as someone who could provide a unique, informed point of view for concert photography. The photo I’ve chosen to submit is of a trumpet student at Capilano University named Trevor Whitridge.
We are in touch with outstanding artists all over the world and our mission is to continue to connect, collaborate, promote, inspire and be inspired by the creative people and minds we touch. We will also feature the top 44 photos ranking highest from our photo expo.
“I’ve always believed that photography is a way to shape human perception.” — James Balog
We received some extraordinary photo work and the judging was extremely close on a lot of the entries. Our whole purpose through these Expos is to find exceptional material and connect with artists all over the world. As with all of our creative expos, we will feature the top third of work received.

The first half of the 20th century belongs to Picasso, and the second half is about photography.
They said digital would kill photography because everyone can do it,
but they said that about the box brownie in 1885 when it came out.
It makes photography interesting because everyone thinks they can take a picture.

We TOTALLY AGREE with David — and LOVE the new worldwide “Art Phenomenation” circling the globe!

We are looking for a photographer to join our Creative Team. The ideal person will have an extensive portfolio of interesting work — including but not limited to photos from live performances (music, theatre, street), art, fashion, design, nature and an array of eclectic “oddities.”
The photographer can be anywhere in the world and must have dependable Internet access with the ability to connect through Instagram. In addition to contributing to our online content, we will need the photographer to post at least 20 photos per month. This is a ground floor opportunity and we are offering a nominal monthly fee to start. ZO is growing steadily and it is our hope that everyone contributing to this new forum will increase in visibility as well as monetarily as we continue to grow.
Our Magazine connects with a lot of its creative contributors through the online creative exposés that it orchestrates. If you are interested in this position, please submit to our online Photo Expo through the buttons above. We will select a photographer from among those entering. (Photographers retain copyright to all of their work and we also very actively promote the work of those we feature.)
