Echelon

Sometimes the phone rings and the conversation that awaits you is not one that you could have ever expected… This was the case for me last May. On the other end was the marketing director for LowePro. While I have talked with him many times, the conversation that awaited me was quite surreal. He said […]

Shooting the Super Bowl Commercial

When I began photography as a career, I often wondered what it would be like to do certain kinds of campaigns. Of these, I did wonder what it would be like to shoot a Super Bowl commercial. I imagined crazy sets where people barked orders down the line of command and the photographer or director […]

The Super Bowl Commercial

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would begin 2015 shooting a Super Bowl commercial. Even further removed from the unlikeliness of shooting said commercial is … well… shooting said commercial in seven images. Not seven scenarios or seven videos, seven photos. The idea, straight from the mind of Pete over at LaneTerralever, […]

Pinterest… whatever that is

So it is a new year and a fresh start… on another social media outlet that I know nothing about. We have spent the last 3 weeks shooting a Super Bowl commercial, only interrupted by a quick stay in the hospital when my temperature decided it wan’t to see what the 104’s were like. A […]

The Idiot in the Elevator

The end of the year is always a mad rush to wrap campaigns and spend out remanning budgets which has left me little time to write lately, and for that I apologize. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with so many people that I can call friends as much as clients. It is […]

In the Mo Bro Spotlight

If you have been participating in Movember, good news, there is only nine days that your soup straining, crumb catching porn stache has to reside on that precious real-estate known as your face. This year I have been reluctant to post picture of the atrocity under my nose, it is just too bad. In 1970 this […]

Stuff You Should Know (Movember Edition)

It is no secret that I am addicted to the podcast Stuff You Should Know. The amount of time that I spend on a plane listening to the banter of Josh and Chuck probably not in the realm of healthy. However, today’s post is all about healthy, more specifically mentally healthy. If you read my post […]

Running on Faith

If there is one part of my career that I could say that I have let myself down in, it would be not shooting enough editorial projects. For many years all I shot was editorial, and I loved it. However the lure of high dollar advertising work was too much and I started turning down […]

The Nikon D750

I never thought I would be writing this blog… We all know I love me some Nikon, but that which is loved is usually of the pro body form. Be it the D3x or D4s, I am a big fan of Nikons with a built in vertical grip. From time to time I do shoot […]

Mental Health . . . (this isn’t going to be easy)

As photographers, writers, illustrators, actors, musicians …. As creatives, we create the world that we exist in, we create the world that the rest of the world sees. This is a gift, it is our gift and it is the soul of the saying that we “are gifted.” While many are brought up to view […]
