Opening Day

Ive been in Western Michigan shooting a personal project on deer season out here and Im about half-way done.  After thawing out from a chilly wind and backing up images, I wanted to share a quick image from today.  Nice winter light…




Something hot in the works

Ive been up since 3 am and am finally back home and starting to look at today’s shoot.  There are some HOT images and video for sure and can’t wait to put it all together.

Ill be up in the midwest (W. Michigan and Minnesota) for the next 2 weeks but should have an edit together soon thereafter and will share it here.

Until then, fire…


Fleeting Seasons

One minute you are standing in a river shooting and enjoying the warm weather and late days and the next it is getting dark at 4:30 and all the leaves are rapidly falling off the trees.  Its times like this when I really need to force myself to carve out some time and get outside and shoot some images.

Now, with the recent (stupid) time change also comes earlier sunrises so, it was early up yesterday and out to some local woods with a model and assistant in tow with the promise of hot coffee once the shooting was done.

Even though the sun wasn’t as cooperative as I would have liked, I was still able to make some nice images.  Im waiting on the color film to come back but I have a few Type 55 exposures to show for it…

Now, I said the colors were changing and things were looking good out in the woods so, I am obligated to show this image of me looking like a homeless man with some beautiful light in the back.  Thanks goes to Brett for capturing me in such stunning detail looking like an idiot.  Thanks Brett.



So, get outside and go shoot something.  Do it.

Nashville. Always Classy.

I had some friends in from Minneapolis this weekend so, had to take them around town and show them a good time.  After much debate, I realized that there really isn’t much outside of drinking and more drinking going on in this town unless you can be in a canoe in the summer or happen to catch some sports one night.  Now, Im not complaining as a good time is always to be had but sometimes, you just need to know when to leave the camera at home.  Or, in this case, drink a bunch of moonshine shots and bring it back out.
It was a long night and it ended at 11:30….
