Generation Lost

Here's some spec work I've pulled out of my hat for some potential clients. I love these images.
Kudos to Eden Talent for sending some teens my way. The crying girl above was styled by Nicky Lee.

Digital Dark Room

I first started printing black and white prints over 21 years ago. I have always loved the challenge of bringing the best out of an negative. Now that the digital age has replaced my enlargers and trays of smelly and sinful chemistry, I still have fun in the darkroom. It's different, but boundless. Photoshop is such an amazing program. Just when I think I know a lot about PS, I find a new canyon to explore and realize there is still so much to learn. And that is what makes it fun.

Dual Life "Style" Photography

At the end of last year, I shot a campaign for Johnson and Johnson Acuvue Contacts. The concept revolved around the idea that people who wear contacts have a life "styles" based on wether they are wearing their contacts or their glasses. This was a fun challenge technically in that the faces and attire are shot in two shots and composited into one. Quirky and fun. It's pretty weird to see what people look like with and without glasses in one glance. But add all the product type, logos, and the miles of legal stuff and it's a really cool ad.

You can see the background build here.
