Been a long time since I've used G+.  Maybe it's time for a resurgence.  Here's the latest: Souperman!

Just an Outtake

Mr. Vernon Davis of the San Francisco 49ers.  I had a lot of fun on this shoot.  And judging by this pic, I think Mr. Davis did, too.  A gentleman athlete who's not afraid to ham it up every now and then.

Here's a new portrait project I've just begun.  I'm forever drawn to the idea that everyone has a story, a voice.  We live in one community and we share one collective narrative.  This is a grant-driven project in which I'm interviewing and photographing locals about their favorite locations around town.  I've met some great people so far and am looking forward to seeing where it all goes; I anticipate shooting many, many people for this project in the coming months, so stay tuned for more.  This is just the tip of the iceberg!

And for those who have asked, everything was shot with #profoto and #phaseone gear.  Specifically, the #profotob4 and the #phaseone #p65 .  Fast recycle times and high sync speeds with leaf shutter lenses make for the perfect location shooting combination.

What about you?  Does your town have a story?

Education, au Naturale

Here's an older image from a client shoot. I was asked to shoot a series of promos for a new educational program focusing on one author (Steinbeck). I had the idea of shooting a classroom in the setting of some of Steinbeck's works (in this case, northern California).

Biker Yoga

We had a fun shoot this week: yoga in a biker bar.  It was, naturally, quite insane, but that was part of the appeal.  :-)

It's funny, Chris: I've actually been very lucky so far in that the clients I've worked with have always been receptive to my creative input. But yes, the too-many-chefs syndrome can strike at any moment.

Fortunately, a professional crew always understands where the buck stops, and I've never been faced with the problem of having too many people trying to override my opinion. I personally think the trick to making it work is simply to remain calm and collected throughout the shoot. ...That probably goes for life, too. :-)

Another shot from my "Hometown Voices" project, in which I shoot local residents in their favorite places around town.  This little guy, Cary, chose his school as his fave location.  His reasoning?  "We have such nice teachers and have good field trips."  Me, I like the murals on the playground!  :-)

Shot with the amazing #phaseone p65 and the #profotob4 .

Hooray for Autumn (and great tech)

Here's a lighting test I shot the other day with the incredible +Phase One P65+.  The expression of the subject pretty much mimics  my expression after using the gear.  Wow.

Power within?  Yeah, I think so!  :-)

Sweeping Past the Traffic

I was late to a photo shoot the other day and, of course, traffic was a nightmare.  Fortunately, I had my trusty broom-a-loom in the trunk.  I'm gonna upgrade to the next model, though, so that I can actually carry my camera gear with me.  :-)

Photo Shoots are Phun!

Yes, sometimes the models laugh at my silliness.  Generally, though, they laugh at my ridiculously bad jokes.  But if I can get an awesome emotion in the photo, then it's all worth it.  ...Even if I have to act like Austin Powers to do it.
