This past summer was epic. After a 4 week trip shooting in London, Milan, Venice, the Amalfi Coast, the Cinque Terre, Barcelona, and the South of France, I came back home only to be thrown into a 3 week trip for Clif bar a few short days later.
This blog is brand new - I’ll be sharing stories, images, and case studies from campaigns we’ve shot over the past few years. For now here are a few bts pics from Zion & Yosemite.
Yo yo yo. Just got word that some images I shot at a music festival were published in the March PDN for their Ultimate Music Moment’s photo competition. Well would you look at that.
I’ve worked with the Creative Director over at Gallery Stock for a long time now. She sent me and a bunch of my friends to Sasquatch so we could have the most fun possible… and shoot it. No faking nothin. Camping out all weekend. Swimming in the river during the heat of the day. Those vibes you get when the music is perfect and you’re feelin fine and somehow synchronized with a thousand other people right there and then.
In a push to get out and shoot before sunny weather turned to the perpetual gloom known as winter in New York, we worked with BMW to produce a 6 day shoot spread across Dumbo, Williamsburg, Meatpacking District, JFK and other parts of Manhattan & Brooklyn for their car sharing services known as Reach Now.
Since the weather change was coming in hot (or wet and cold), we had 2 weeks to produce over 40 shots, casting more than a grip of talent, coordinate a small fleet of cars and drivers and lock down full New York city blocks and even a terminal at JFK. Balancing budget, highly recommended but nimble crew, permits, and a monstrous ask of a shot list, I’m pumped on what we ended up shooting. I’m also pumped on our well oiled machine of a crew who made it all happen. Portland based producers and long time friends Darren Utt and Emma Brown, superstar stylist Heather Newberger, and our fleet of race car drivers PAs to move a grip of 3 series, X1s and electric i3s at a moments notice.
This summer I connected with the good people at Simple bank about shooting some hero images for their website. We spent a day at a guitar store + out and around Portland. They were such a fun client to work with - with good ideas, good dad jokes, and good times - we made some lovely images together.
BTW: I wanted to try out their products so I signed up and haven’t looked back! Check them out. simple.com
