This past week, news has been dominated by stories of the violent storm that has hit the East coast of the United States and there have been some very vivid and haunting images circulating in the media and on social media platforms of the destruction that hurricane Sandy has left in its wake. As usual, this has stirred some heated debate about the use of Instagram and other such apps for documenting events of this nature. Time magazine even used an Instagram photograph on the cover of their latest issue. We'd love to know what you think on the matter so please do leave us comment below!

New Competition Announced:Unusual Everyday

Posted by Stacey on: 25th Oct 2012

As we were brainstorming our next competition theme, we wanted to come up with something that would inspire you to be a little more creative with your photography, to see the world through different eyes, to question your approach and to venture outside of your comfort zone.

We also wanted to choose a theme that everybody could take part in and that was not limited to a certain genre of photography or a certain context or subject matter. We wanted to give you free reign to explore photography on your terms but to do so in a way that would stretch your imagination and challenge your abilities.

That's when we came up with the theme Unusual Everyday. We want to see photographs that depict your interpretation of this theme. They can be photographs that you already have as part of your portfolio or archive or photographs that you have set up and staged with this competition in mind. The options are endless and we really don't want to impose too many restraints, but in order to give you a better idea of how you may like to explore this theme, we have put together a list to help you get started and to spark some inspiration.

You may like to think about, but are not limited to, images of the following:

· Everyday objects or places taken from unusual angles or perspectives

· Unusual uses of everyday objects

· Everyday objects shot in unusual places

· Everyday activities done in an unusual way

· Something unusual that you might not see everyday

· Unusual activities taking place in everyday locations

The list really is endless, but hopefully this has given you something to think about and if you are still not feeling inspired, we have put together a small selection of images that may help to get your creative juices flowing.
Unusual Everyday
If a creative challenge isn't motivation enough, then perhaps the chance of winning a subscription to a premium photographic magazine is? For more details head on over to our competitions page.

It's all quiet here on the TPA front at the moment. We only had one exhibition earlier this week at Henrietta House in London and we have one starting tomorrow at Astral Towers in Crawley (see our exhibitions page for more details). However, this has given us all a little bit of respite and enabled us to reassess, take stock (literally) and catch up on those long overdue administrative jobs that get put to the bottom of the pile when things are more hectic. Luckily this has given us a great opportunity to concentrate on the blog and we have some really great interviews scheduled in with some fantastic photographers who we are hoping will inspire you and your creative endeavors.

1) A Photographer's Ode To Unsung Artists
2) The Cosmos In Living Color: Michael Benson's Interstellar Imagery
3) Shedding Old Stereotypes and Imposing New Ones in Eastern Europe
4) What Is Conceptual Photography?
