Been busting the preverbal butt this week, wrapping up edits, and bringing several interesting jobs to a close. Before I can post those (waiting for the magazines to go to print) here is a still from the upcoming music video we filmed for Justice.

Love makin’ and Photo takein’!

It is a simple pleasure to make it out to shoot the state fair behind the scenes. Perhaps it’s because I relate more to the hard working, nomadic, separated souls that are sent before the cotton candy or the deep-friend-snickers than I do to the herds of human livestock corralled between the steel guardrails.

It takes me back to my professional wrestling days, when all the crowd would see are the performers… the superstars flying through the air. Never mind the booker, the ring crew, the gorilla position. The smoke and mirrors that is a glorious spectacle.

Just to sit and talk with them, oh the stories, the lives, and the families.

They let me in, and hug me each and every year… why? From what they tell me, it’s because unlike most photographers that meander by and snap a shot, hoping not to be noticed, I stop… and talk to them. Share with them. I do not only take, but I give as well… and each day I return with photographs in hand to give to everyone that I shot the day before, be it a person, building, animal… I try my hardest to find everyone.

And I miss them during the year, but always look forward to the crisp autumn when an old friend returns.

Remember to give back…

This action will give your images a high-contrast, smooth bleach bypass feel, all the while still maintaining good detail in the highlights and shadows. And if you need to be slapped because you don’t know what bleach bypass is then… SLAP! It’s almost cinematic as I look at it now…

After some major technical errors and 2 software crashes, Episode 2 of PhotoBrew is finally up and running! We are working out the kinks in hopes of building a better (more beer-filled) show!

It’s rough around the edges, but we are having fun, and working to figure out our delivery and what exactly we want to offer during the show, the format, if you will.

Had some fun shooting some portfolio work for a model this weekend! Sometimes its good to leave the huge rolling case of strobes at the studio, and bring a not-so-heavy reflector to a shoot.

It’s very exciting to almost be finished with another short film. We have one more day of filming and then two days in post, and I couldn’t be happier to be working with such a great and talented crew!

“Epic Beer Brothers: Easter Bunny Blitz is a gateway into the lives of the Beer Brothers, contract killers with a hit list of outlandish and (sometimes) heavily armed individuals. Though the series was only meant to be short-lived, it’s underground popularity (mostly close friends) have now spawned their own YouTube Channel which will feature non-other-than… you guessed it, their very own Beer & Food Show! Expect Epic Beer Brothers to launch this Summer!

Here are a couple more stills from the editing process:
