File this under “lets solve a problem nobody has….and lets do it elegantly!” I am a fan of Tether Tools and use a couple of their products often. That being said, I received this promotional image from them yesterday demonstrating their new “Rock Solid” line of articulating arms, brackets and clamps for holding wireless receivers [...]

We shot these theatrical and commercial headshot at Kohl’s Ranch in Payson, Arizona in August. Steve Murphy is a experienced commercial actor who was jumping back in after a 10 year hiatus. As a general rule, I spend a lot of time working towards a energetic momentum with the subject…getting them to fully relax and then [...]
Personal Work. Sedona, Arizona. June 2012. Canon G12.
Newest batch of ads and web banner photography we shot for Thermolife International. The agency on this shoot was Smashbrand who has been a client of our since 2009. The bold branding designs for this account required advertising photography that was lit to a narrow set of specs to compliment their post production strategy of [...]

Just had a interesting shoot drop in my lap which includes an unusual opportunity for a couple of our advanced interns to shoot for their portfolios.

The bell tolls for another commercial photography market as we know it. A new camera system has hit the market that is not likely to produce squeals of excitement from the global community of professional photographers. If you are a product photographer shooting high volume catalog work, the writing is on the wall…you might want [...]
Ah…parting is such sweet sorrow…. My August 12th post was about the time lapse camera housings we used on a corporate photography project that launched in April of 2011. We are now in the home stretch of final post production of those assets for our clients on the project (Solon Corp /APS and McCarthy Construction). Shooting the [...]

One of the joys of being a headshot photographer is shooting children. Kids who are doing their first theatrical or commercial head shots can be the most challenging and the results the most gratifying too. As a general rule, they bring to their shoots a predictable combination of excitement, fear, and a complete openness to [...]
Here are the 38 “Best Print Ads” of 2011/2013 from the Grand Prix and gold winners from the Cannes Press Lions contest. Many of these you have probably seen and are familiar with but there are several that I had not seen. Of course most of these winners are art direction not photography driven [...]
Well this is a new one for us. I’m working on a “man in the iron mask” project that requires a prop stylist, paper mache artist or metal fabricator that can reproduce 3-5 15th-17th century ”iron mask” type props. I have not found the right fit among my usual prop stylists. We don’t need them to be [...]
