Scouting…

That turned into a 10 minute shoot. Headed to the Pine Barrens to check out some spots with Chelsea yesterday. It was a spur of the moment decision, and I had no plan. Looking at the spots on Bing and Google maps, I didn’t think about the snow fall we’ve had lately. The first location was buried, and not knowing what was underneath, I decided against it. So what do you do when you’re in the middle of the Pine Barrens? Head to the beach.

A look back at 2013

This year was such an enjoyable experience. I am nothing short of proud of the fact. My original goal of traveling to different events was exceeded. Including taking on a wedding solo with little time to plan or meet with clients. I haven’t planned much for ’14 so far. I want to stray from Formula D and drifting for the most part. The not most part? Detroit and Lime Rock. Lime Rock for the friends, and Detroit…well because there is something great about that city. Looking back at it, I had no idea what to expect. Sure you hear nothing but bad things about it, but once you’re there you forget all the negative. I need more time to explore, more time to meet random friendly faces. (Yes everyone, be it downtown or the surrounding wasteland, everyone was friendly).

This post is going to have a part 2. I’m being hard on myself and not just throwing a bunch of photos up. The ones below and part 2 are only the photos that came out exactly how I envisioned them. Some aren’t great by any means, but to me they have me grinning from ear to ear.

Enjoy, because 2013 fucking rocked…

Recent: Detroit

Last Thursday I departed for Detroit for a Midwest Drift Union event. This was special because it was being held on actual public streets. I am still working on the photos, and missing the town still. Such an amazing event. Here is a preview of what I captured.

Uncovering Eden

A few months ago, my good friend Chelsea Lupkin wrote a script for a short film about anti bullying. Chelsea, Kevin, and myself got together to shoot her kickstarter video to acquire the budget to make this happen. After a lot of hard work, post whoring, and amazing strangers, the project made budget and more. This last weekend, the cast and crew finished shooting the first half.  I never been part of a film project and was taken back a bit by everything that is required. I live for these new experiences. The weekend was long and tiring, but totally worth it. Check out some of the photos I took below.

Say hello…

To this beautiful newly married couple.

Jon and Jess. Two people who are living their dreams working in the gaming industry. Jon and myself met up during the week to sign the contract, have a beer, and discuss ideas. Growing up with video games, my mind went crazy. So many nerdy ideas I had, and Jon was just there adding to them. The big day for these two came around, and I was excited. This was my first solo (no second shooter, no VAL, no umbrella girl) wedding. I should have been nervous. Maybe I was just taken back by how many props I had to use for the bridal party. Lightsabers, Lancer assault rifles, and even a portal gun, were all available to use. If you’re wondering, yes I did nerd out a bit. I had a blast shooting, and just so much fun in general. Here are some photos I finished. Big thank you and congratulations to Jon and Jess!

Super pumped to be shooting a wedding completely by myself with full artistic freedom. I am going to have so much fun shooting this for these 2 beautiful video game developers. We might all nerd out. Lets hope so.

Random Unplanned Photos

Total spur of the moment photos are the best. These were originally suppose to be shot during the golden hour, but “someone” was late meeting up. I quickly ran through my location list in my memory and remembered this alley. I have been wanting to shoot here for years, but completely forgot about it. This was about a ten minute shoot. It was cold, and poor Julie was shivering after the first set of shots. I personally love working fast. I tend to second guess and over complicate a shot with too much time. Tried some different tweaks in lightroom and added some grain to some. Still debating on redoing these.
