Silence on the Blog

I haven't added much to my blog for a few weeks, but that doesn't mean things aren't happening here at the studio. I've been consumed with producing a large job for December that I'll be shooting next week.   I've also had several clients asking me to do many songs and dances for projects that will be shot in January. Add family time and a heap of holiday stuff to do and there you have it... violins playing while I make excuses for silence on the blog.

The coming weeks promise some great blog material though. Stay tuned!

Holiday Design Party shoot.

In December's issue of 5280 Magazine, I have a spread of pictures shot for a story about a non-traditional holiday party. There was enough sushi at the shoot to sink a ship.

The party featured neighbors, friends, and professional peers who often get together throughout the year. The mix of friends brings smorgasbord of backgrounds and thus a little of everything. A traditional holiday party is out of the question.

This shoot was unique because I lit and shot the whole party with hot lights instead of strobes. I wanted to create a warm and natural light that would feel "real" and not "lit."
