Did a fast and fun backpacks shoot for the good folks over at Design Bureau Magazine. The issue should be hitting the stands later this fall – I’ll update you on when you can expect it. Tight deadline, but a pretty clear idea of what they wanted – and I had just enough time to run around the warehouse district, set up 5 guerrilla locations, shoot, and move on in one day of perfect light. Definitely learned a few things, and would love to revisit some of those ideas with the bigger cameras, and more time.
Julie Failey has been continuing to develop her lovely jewelry, and we’re changing direction a bit on how we are shooting new pieces. Keep an eye on her website. I feel like we’ve got a good tag team going on with Giana Sitzes doing on-model lifestyle shots, and me handling the the product shots. Julie is a blast to work with, and her vision and energy keeps us all moving forward. Always a good thing.
We took a family vacation to Blowing Rock, North Carolina to spend time with a good friend, and do the tourist thing. Really amazing part of the country. The Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains down there are spectacular. Kate even managed to get me across the mile high “Swinging” bridge on the top of Grandfather Mountain. I had forgotten how much fun landscape shooting can be – a couple decades in the flat midwest will do that. Once I process the rolls from that trip, I’ll share a few here. If nothing else, it was great to break out of my usual patterns.
I hope you all are doing well. Good Light.
