‘Best’ of 2012

Here on the last day of 2012 I have compiled a ‘Best’ of reel (I use the term ‘best’ loosely) These images represent my creative journey this year, and while I may have shot better work, these are some of my favorites. Click on an image to enter the slide show and enjoy…they are in approximately the following order…compositions, disco-tec, studio portrait, location portrait, critters…

Your Friend and Humble Narrator…

I have just moved into a new place and finally getting settled. I have built my darkroom (for the first time in years) and received a seamless paper in the mail today to complete the studio setup. As such, I did a few self portraits to test the limits of the space. Now that you all know what I look like; if any of you, my little droogies, would like to have a similar portrait taken, let me know…

 

My Mamiya Mit Mid Morning Meridian

Stopped by the Photo 285 summer session class at Northern Arizona University for a few days this week. The students were shooting in the studio all week and I hung out, helped a few students and shot a little too. Recently I have been on a natural light kick, so in keeping with that tradition I put down a few frames of Stormy outside the Communication building and in a stairwell with floor to ceiling windows… Continue reading

Traffic Boosting Goat…

Following the success of last weeks traffic boosting cat photo. Here is another try, a traffic boosting goat. Enjoy…

Fitness Preview pt. Deux

In recent times, I have been interested in shooting figure details similar to this. You can see more here… I have bigger plans for these negatives, but that project is going to take quite some time. Until then, I will share some of the images I get along the way. Hit the link to see some more… Continue reading

Vivitar 35ca

Just a quick post to show an image from the first roll out of my Vivitar 35ca, a nice little rangefinder I have had for some time, but have not shot with. I have wanted something a little smaller and more inconspicuous for my carry around camera, and a rangefinder seemed like the perfect solution. This is shot on Kodak T-Max 100, pushed to 400. In the photo is Aaron working the kitchen line at Macy’s Coffee Shop. More to come in the nearish future…

First Frame

Another quick post,  somewhat similar to my last post, but oh so different…While the lighting is the same, the model is different; and perhaps more importantly the camera is new. This is the first frame I shot on my new (at least to me) Mamiya RB67 Pro-SD. Super excited to explore the possibilities with this new piece of gear. Gotta love the 6×7 negative and 180mm lens. Shot on Fuji Acros with three ProFoto D1 heads.

Some Studio Snaps

Sunday I assisted Matt Beaty in the studio shooting t-shirts and hats for a start-up clothing company ‘Sea Level Sucks.’ After a full day of running the computer, setting up lights and generally helping out with the clients I was tired. I watched Matt put down hundreds of frames all afternoon and needed to get my creative angst out (it isn’t fair that someone else should get to shoot all day and I don’t get a single frame) As it so happened, another photographer, Dhalia Stack, was using the studio facility that day, shooting some photos of Rachel (above). Being an unabashed model thief, and seeing a cool outfit as they came in, I asked if I could shoot a few frames (no more than 12, I only had one roll of 120 for the Hasselbald)…

Fitness Preview

I recently had the pleasure of photographing an old friend, Robert, who is a personal trainer in Prescott, Ariz. He is breaking into the world of fitness modeling and competition and as such needed some shots for his portfolio. I put down several hundred frames on my trusty digital Nikon, but couldn’t resist a little time with the Hasselblad. Hit the link for more… Continue reading

Holy Grain Structure Batman…

I like to keep you, my loyal friends and followers, updated on at least a weekly basis as to what is going on here. Sometimes my posts have a theme sometimes it is just a compilation of images, either way I like to share what I have been up to lately. Even if it isn’t portfolio work (and a lot isn’t) I shoot constantly, click the link to see some film recently developed and scanned…
