Default Recent work

Over the last year, I've been migrating away from families and weddings and heading more towards commercial work and high end portraits. Little bit of a learning curve and a whole lot of fun for me. Hoping to expand this work.

Partially because of middle daughter's dance career, I've been pulled into working with dancers and dance companies. Great people to work with and they're always up for something creative.

Some of it is indoors...



But I prefer being outside...





Planning some stuff down at Great Sand Dunes and a few other spots. Nice to have a truck again so I can get to where I want to take people.

Day job tends to put me in interesting places and I always carry a camera. Back in June I was in Memphis and just happened to wander into Bike Night. That was wild. Some pretty impressive machines and the south is, well, it's the south.

One of the things I do for a creative recharge, or just to see things differently, is to street shoot. Sometimes I'll take the big Canon but most times I do this with film. Either an old Canon F1 or my favorite camera of all time, the Hasselblad 500cm. When I'm street shooting, I find the Hassy to be a conversation starter and not off putting. Most people have no idea what it is.

A couple of weeks ago, I was at the zoo with my wife and youngest daughter. Our older two have been gone all summer and we were looking for something to do. I grabbed the Hassy and two rolls of HP5. Piper wanted to shoot too so she got the F1 and a random roll of 35mm that I grabbed out of the fridge.

The Hassy is a camera that knows no age. The pictures that come out of it now are just as sharp as they were 40 years ago and as they will be 40 years from now. I need to use it more often.

Thought I'd share a few images.
