Early Day Miners shoot

Shooting musicians and bands is something I’d like to do more of. Here are some selects from a shoot this week with Early Day Miners as they are about to embark on a 19 city European tour.

Portraits

Some fun recent portrait sessions

Inspo shots

I love when clients bring in shots that inspire them. Gives me a good idea of the look they are wanting and a target to aim for. Whether we stick closely to recreating the look or just use them as a springboard to discover something new, inspo images are always a great place to start. Here’s Julie Couret killing it, as usual.

Portraits

Been expanding the photography side of business, especially into portraits. I guess the best way to categorize them is creative business headshots. Not stuffy and stiff, but something that captures the personality of the subject during the session.

Have gear, will travel - 2

My job has allowed me to go to some incredible places and meet some wild people. Here I am shooting on the unfinished 65th floor of a tower on 42nd Street in Manhattan, with Bob Sapp in Tokyo, in Jingdezhen China and in Key West.

Halloween promo

This fun little promo combines two of my favorite things: Halloween and drag. Shot in Storyland in New Orleans’ City Park.

Have gear, will travel

Work has taken me all over the country, even the world, and some of the most fun shoots are at the huge sporting and music events I’d never have access to otherwise like College Football Playoff and NHL All Stars, Essence Festival and Voodoo Festival. I try to grab a selfie at each of them.

Jones County Road: Lighting - a maker video

Los Angeles based lamp maker, Ryan Rogers, creates beautiful brass lighting fixtures.  The aim of this short piece is to show a bit of the process, tools and techniques that he uses when crafting a lamp, to get a glimpse of his studio in DTLA and his dog, Wylie, and to highlight the fact that all of the lamps are hand built by Ryan, himself-- and to do it in a fun, stylized manner.
