Advertising Photographer Blog
Photography’s new suitor: Microsoft
Apple, we had a good run… Through the many iPads, iPhones, MacBooks, Mac Pros, heck, even the Apple Watch, it was a good run indeed.
TIME inspires Photographers… again
Inspiration in this career is everything. It is worthless to argue that all creative is found within the self when even the most obscure campaign finds its life built of particles of life, art and the world around all assembled subconsciously to create our art.
Project Panic Attack
Some time ago, I wrote a blog eulogizing a friend that passed away suddenly, a friend that I had fallen out of touch with for many years and was never afforded a good bye. I wanted to know my friend more, but that fate was gone, instead I could only know him now by those his life impacted.
W… for all times, W.
There was not a dry eye in the house last night, and I’m sure there were many others like it. Both mine and my wife’s families are from Chicago, which makes us Cubs fans (sorry White Sox).
Top Gun
I feel like there have been way to many times in my life where I have had to ask myself, “how the hell did I get into this situation?” This photoshoot is one of those…
Congrats to a Fellow Creative
One of the greatest parts of being in advertising is being able to celebrate the accomplishments of those whom I have had the good fortune of standing next to on set.
Iconic Race Cars
Race cars have always represented art to me; it is just convenient that they are fast as hell and tear your ears out in the process.
Journalism
If it wasn’t apparent in the recent article I wrote on the television show “The Newsroom,” let’s just say that I have a strong fear that we are letting technological advancements hurt our true quest for knowledge.
Sushi… who doesn’t love it
Many years ago I was visiting with Bill Stockland, an artist rep and friend of mine.  We had toured his office and then found ourselves in the portfolio room where I looked over the work of Walter Iooss.
American Bladerunner
With the Olympics upon us, I wanted to take a moment and talk about one of the most unique athletes I have ever photographed, the American Bladerunner, Blake Leeper. He will be competing in Rio for Team USA and is an inspiring young man.
A Photoshoot for Dad
Firstly, hello World. It has been quite some time since I have had a chance to sit down and write a bit, but in a way, that is a good thing as I have a lot of new images to talk about in the near future. Today’s photoshoot is one that supersedes them all, as it is one that near and dear to my heart.
The Indy 500 that Made Us Cry
It probably doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to figure out the sport which captivates me more than any other… racing.
Michael Reichmann
I was on set yesterday when I received a phone call from a fellow photographer informing me the Michael Reichmann, founder of Luminous-Landscape.com had died.
Better Angels
The last three weeks have been an exercise in distance, for the last year my life has existed at home.
