Jeff Bridges – actor AND photographer?

Jeff Bridges is a pretty well-known actor.  In case you don’t, just rent the Big Lebowski and you’ll love every minute of it.  He’s also the villain in Iron Man.  Apparently he’s also somewhat of a photog in his spare time. His weapon of choice? A Widelux.  It’s a 35 mm film camera that takes panoramic shots.

Bridges has been carrying his Widelux around for many years, and has just released a book of panoramas he’s taken from various movie sets and parties.  Below you can see one of his photos, one he took of the crew on a movie.

You can also view the rest of his photos here.

Bridges is also running an indie music label, Ramp Records.

Overall, I’m pretty impressed with Bridges.  Besides acting in some cult classics, he’s managed to avoid turning entirely Hollywood.  And he’s shown some definite talent behind the lens.
