I’ve had a crazy few years since 2007. Lots of craziness. This is my second Thanksgiving in Atlanta and I’ve got lots to be thankful for. I’ve got a couple of amazing friends here and I’ve got a good job that challenges me in ways I should be challenged. I’ve got a place to live that I really like and I’ve got some cool projects going that could lead to cool stuff down the road. I’ve got a great family […]
My friend Michael asked me to do a few portraits before his wedding next month. We went to the High Museum here in Atlanta and just played with some lines and spaces. Michael was a fantastic model, I rarely told him how to pose, he just has a knack for looking good in front of the camera. It was fun and I got several that I really liked.
I’m friends with Jay Maisel’s Studio Manager, not by coincidence. Jay Maisel is one of my favorite photographers and I’ve blogged about him before. Here’s a video produced by the Santa Fe Workshops that really shows off some of his best images and captures some of his nuggets of wisdom. It’s really inspiring to me and I think you’ll enjoy it too. Anyway, my buddy John is the studio manager for Jay and I was lucky enough to get the […]
Met up with a photographer friend for drinks and a photowalk in Decatur, GA. It was getting dark by the time we got around to shooting. Not my best work but here are a few I sort of liked.
I took a trip to New York to promote workshoppers.org at the 2010 PDN PhotoPlus Expo. Another blog post will cover some more details of the trip soon. I love coming to New York because it’s a great city for just carrying your camera and shooting whatever seems interesting in the moment. The streets are filled with vibrancy and character and it’s hard not to come back with at least a few interesting images.
As mentioned in part 1, I was able to hit the streets of East Atlanta for the Annual East Atlanta Strut Festival. It was fun! Here are the rest of the images! This last one is of a poodle riding around strapped to the chest of this biker guy. Took a few quick shots, and this was the best I could manage…
A few weeks ago we were shooting parts of a documentary about Jason Meninger during the FLW cup on Lake Lanier. I took a moment and shot this portrait of my coworker. This is Gino. A great designer and thinker.
When I left a cushy full time job in Arkansas in 2007 to move to Santa Fe and work for the Santa Fe Photography Workshops, I viewed it as the beginning of an amazing adventure. It was an awesome, (if sometimes bumpy) ride that led me to some great places and introduced me to tons of great people along the way. Ultimately I found myself in Atlanta, Georgia hustling for work as a freelance photo/video specialist and teaching the occasional […]
This oil spill is big news. But I was curious about how the media was handling the scope of the news. The truth of it is that the networks all have an agenda. I don’t claim to know or take sides, but I wanted to see for myself what the situation on the beaches looked like. So I went down with a few friends and documented what I found. I wasn’t trying to be a reporter and I wasn’t trying […]
I stumbled across the BP Staging Area for the oil spill containment efforts. Panama City Beach didn’t seem to have any oil washing up yet, but I think they were getting ready to disburse some of these booms/bumbers. I didn’t talk to anyone from BP because I glanced at the clock and was running a bit late for my conference. So I snapped these pictures and jumped back in the car. I also found the Community Outreach Center and it […]
While we were driving down to Florida to check out the oil spillage, we passed this old farmhouse basking in beautiful late afternoon light, so I whipped a U-turn and we took a few minutes to explore and shoot.
I had the opportunity to photograph executive chef Todd Ginsberg at Atlanta’s Bocado, one of the best lunch places in the city! The food is incredible and the atmosphere is a great combination of classy and relaxed. They have a small garden in the back where they grow some of their own vegetables. Todd is a great chef! I’ve eaten there several times and the menu always has new items. Big thanks to Josh Geyer for the awesome assist!
I had the privilege of shooting a portrait of James F. Geiger, the Founder, Chairman, President and CEO of CBeyond Inc., for the 2010 Annual Report. Of course Mr. Geiger is a busy man, so we only had a scheduled 15 minutes to shoot. But after about 3 minutes, he was ready to get back to work, which was fine because I had the shot in the can. I only got 11 frames and the 11th one was the winner! […]
