I recently traveled to Dayton, Ohio to film at an air force base, and then jumped over to Chicago to cover an event. While in Chicago I was lucky enough to score a ride with pro formula drift champion, Vaughn Gittin Jr. Check it out.
She laughed as she looked up and realized I was ready to shoot with my lens cap still on…for the second time that night. I’m forgetful when changing lenses. It isn’t intentional. Shelby arrived at 7:30 with her friend Thursday night.
They looked at each other from time to time, made funny faces, laughed, and did silly dance moves.
Her friend reminded me very much of myself about 8 years ago. Unfortunately his name escaped me. He works in a sheet metal factory as I did. Grinding away day to day in oil filled press rooms. Cool guy. Shy at first but you can tell there’s an interesting story lying beneath the surface.
I’ve never met Shelby or her friend before and it’s likely our paths won’t cross again. It’s such an awesome feeling to be able to capture a sliver of someone’s life in an image.
Laurie & Louis’ wedding was unbelievably amazing. The mix of culture and tradition was so inspiring. I can’t say enough about how wonderful a group I had the pleasure to be around and photograph that day. Best of luck to Laurie & Louis and to all of their amazing friends and family. Here is a small sample of the photos from their wedding.
Well my favorite season is here again: Autumn. The air is crisp and the food is amazing. Jen & I have been taking leisurely strolls around town looking at the foliage. Below are a few shots taken this year. Enjoy!
Last week, Emma came in to work as a model for the cover of one of our magazines. She was amazing to work with…super professional and new exactly what to do. We spoke for a bit and she mentioned her father and mother are in the photography business and actually met in Paris as models. Her father is now a photographer working with New York City actors and actresses and her mother is the make-up artist. What an awesome team! Discovery Health Channel actually shot an episode of their popular show “Runway Moms” at their studio.
I’m unable to post most of the images until they’re published, but here are a few of the “out takes”. Special thanks to Betty (the art director) for giving me the opportunity to shoot with Emma.
UPDATE – See published photos below…
