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.
As it was left on Tuesday, I had undertaken a monster EAS shoot that had more complexities that I have sanity. It was a three day shoot that would produce over 90 images, a 15, 30 and 60 second commercials, and grey hair.
The life of an advertising photographer is on par with the metaphorical tightrope walk. It is beyond the balancing act almost to a point of daredevil attribute from the inherent risk. There are many great photographers that gravitate towards different avenues of this medium because, let’s face it, advertising is a very complex dance.
UPDATE: I wanted to post this blog up to the top again not for the promotion of the work, but as a reminder that keep Michael in your thoughts. While there is progress being made, we are very aware of the severity of head injuries as seen in all too early passing of Jules Bianchi. For those that follow F1 and those that don’t, if anything, let it be a reminder to tell those around how much they mean to you.
Whole lot to catch up on…. well at least a few years worth of random photos that have no place to call home. Over the next x months (x being a sign that my schedule let’s me plan life on a day by day basis) I will be uploading photos as much a possible. Some with stories, some without, some that will make people unsubscribe to this blog, others that will make you want to unsubscribe to humanity.
Casually beginning my Monday with a latte and Sunrise Earth on the TV, I received a call from the New York Times in regards to a photoshoot in the coming days. As I have enjoyed working with them in the past, I agreed and learned that the photograph would be of the Honorable Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.
Like many, if not all, other photographers, I enjoy the the vast amount of avenues in our medium. Be it photojournalism, table top, macro, etc., I really appreciate what so many other photographers do, and celebrate their successes as much as my own.
