Day of Prep

A day of Prep for some product shots. I love the sound of a Hazy Light going off and the little beep.

Copy Work

Some copy work for an agencies portfolio. Backed the lights off and low power to shoot @ f/4.5 for some shallow depth of field.

secret location

What ? Going to print next week ? Off to a secret location for a shoot before 2 days before Christmas. I'll let you know more next week.

Absolut Holiday

A good idea but bad execution.

My cell phone

Still boycotting the 21st century and don't have a cell phone. Can I make it another year ?


Went the other day with my photo buddy Mark Petko and walked the streets of downtown Durham.

weekly random snapshots 12-18-09

Been looking at a lot of Picasso lately, think I'm going through my "Blue" period.

Cancer Survivor

This is the 5th in the Cancer Survivor series. I was going to get all techie on the shoot spec's since I was kicking it old school 4x5, but I took away a lot more from the shoot than I thought. I got to hear a good part of the interview and thought I'd share that. Don't take life for granted, cherish everyday and the time we all have together. Mr. X said when he wakes up in the morning the sky is always bluer and colors are more vivid and the music is sweeter. His wife said battling cancer is all about team work, you feel like a bungie cord, somedays your stretched to your limit other you're fine and relaxed. Kinda made me think how people take everyday for granted. I almost got weepy .............

Products on white

Nothing like white boxes on a white background.

Good bye Blue Wall ........


I'd been editing video out in the main studio area, thought it was time for a change. Some rearranging and painting in the prop room. Got a monitor on order and some black curtains.

What's that sound ?

Just stuff falling off the Christmas tree ...............

Beverly Perdue

A call from a corporate client to cover Governor Beverly Perdue on site while she signs an Executive Order Creating Logistics Task Force. I'm sure the local media people were not happy with me setting up Big lights for the event. I tried shooting available light, the exposure was ISO 1000 - 1/125 @ f/2.8 and it looked really bad. It was a dark warehouse, so I ended up with a Profoto and soft-box as the main light an an AB with umbrella on the background.


Some location shots, went a little crazy with the blue gel's.

Nothing says class like wood paneling

I do some standard head shots on white for a local agency. At some point I go out and shoot some casual images around the office. No time to go on location so we tried some in the studio. Nothing says class like wood paneling

Grip and grin

Tis the season for grip and grin shots. When a corporate client calls you do what you can.

A night at the Museum

Working on a cover shot for a new magazine. We got to shoot in the basement of the NC Museum of Natural Sciences. The staff was great. I could've spent hours looking at stuff. Big thanks to Angie at Face Artistry for hair and make up.

Getting ready for Christmas

I do feel a little guilty. I tell myself I decorate the house for the holidays for the kids, but I think it's really more for me. Trying to keep some of that Pittsburgh tradition alive in the south. Should make a great backdrop with the kids for Christmas cards.

Black Friday

Went out and shot some images on Black Friday for the Picture Black Friday photo contest.
My orginal intention for Black Friday was crowds ,chaos long exposures and blurry people.
As I scouted out the local Best Buy’s I noticed a vacant Circuit City, and down the street
a vacant Linens-N-things. I felt more drawn to these places than the crowds. It seemed on
every corner there were homeless people out with signs looking for help. I know these images
are more anti-Black Friday, but feel they repsesent the social and economic times we live in.

packing for location

Packing for location ...... everything except the Hazy .....

I hope she's OK
