Based on who this person is I knew I would scrutinize this image far more than any other portrait that I had ever made. During this project “The Making of a Celebrity Portrait,” it redefined how I view celebrities. It made me question if celebrity culture influenced us so greatly that we want to be portrayed like them. In a world that revolves around social networking and selfies I started wondering what these images really say about us.
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN. I’m asking you to include a photograph of yourself for this project. The idea is to collect many images so we can create one picture of who we really are. On Instagram, #iamthecelebrity with a portrait of you. Follow @ian_ruhter and @Profotoglobal for project updates. All month long we’ll be cataloguing and commenting on these images. Once this is done we’ll create the final project—stay tuned for updates!

“Pushing through the darkness” is a short video project about skateboarding in the city night.
Practicing skateboarding during the daylight hours is the normal routine for skateboarders: they meet at the skatepark to chill with the friends and to play game of S.K.A.T.E. match or to try to learn new tricks. Especially during the summer, when the days are hotter and longer and just try to do a kick flip makes you sweat, discovering the city night with your best friends is the best thing to do as skateboarder. Night session can be the best option to skate with a cooler temperature, with less traffic, and to access some skate spots that are off limits during the day. When the sun sets and the night falls over the streets, skateboarders begin their night life. Sharing passions and challenges practicing skateboarding can become something special, something rare and unforgettable. Approaching a night session as a skateboarder is different from a normal daytime session: there are many difficulties in practicing during nightime and darkness obviously being the main one.
Trying to focus on a trick is harder, solving the problems on the in run, on the landing or on the sketchy flat, and generally navigating the spot are more difficult. For all these reasons concentration, determination and perseverance must be at their highest during a night session.This is what makes a simple grind down a rail or a tech line on a street curb special, intense and amazing.
This project lays between the action-sports video and the documentary genres. Focusing on the emotions and the intense relationship between skateboarders and the streets of their cities, “Pushing through the darkness” gives a bright vision of skateboarding in the city night.

Here is a short time-lapse of fans leaving Wembley Stadium after Brazil played England in an international friendly on February 6, 2012. I was positioned on a bridge over the walkway in front of the Wembley Park tube station. The police use the horses to regulate the flow of people in to the tub station, so the platforms do not become dangerously crowded.
The match was obviously a sold out stadium of 90,000. The time-lapse begins about 20 minutes after the fans started leaving and about an hour elapses in it, so this is approximately 75% of the fans that left in this direction. A police officer told me that the space from the horses to the first black pole will have approximately 2,000-2,500 people when they are stopped.

In June of 2014, we spent 11 days surfing the Mentawai Islands. The conditions were perfect the entire trip with light offshore winds and plenty of swell to go around. I was able to capture some pretty interesting angles using Phyllis (name of my drone). Enjoy the highlights of our trip and experience the beauty of the Islands from above.
