Always fun to shoot custom weapons! This is an AK47 M10 variation with Magpul furniture. Upgrades include Tapco drop in trigger, iron night sights, charging handle cover and quick-release strap system. Lighting was a large Octodome overhead, camera-left and a bare strobe camera-left, level with the objects in the frame.

Had a great time yesterday shooting wedding portraits yesterday with Brittany & Justin! Congrats to both of you! Here is a sneak peek.
While working on a video recently, I found out the client also needed stills for posters for a promotion. I only had one strobe with me so I set it up with an umbrella to shoot some "dramatic" style portraits. Both models were great, Ian plays basketball for the University of Tennessee and Fred plays football for Merrimack College. The lighting was one strobe, fired into a white umbrella, camera-left of the models.
The video footage I shot with (awesome) Fitness Model Sarah (top left) has been selected for the next #staythepath video for Carrie Underwood's clothing line Calia! Sarah will be traveling to New York to represent Calia as a runway model for fashion week! Great Job Sarah!
World premiere of the Mask On | Mask Off music video for H.A.H. AKA Hungry As A Hostage. As soon as I heard the artist wanted to do a Halloween themed video I knew I was in on this project. The video features an industrial location inside a metal shop with the artist portrayed as a horror film character set on revenge. Check out his music at hungryasahostage.com.

I've been working on a new technique for creating digital Lith images for printing. With traditional wet darkroom printing, the trick to creating Lith prints was the combination of paper and special chemistry solutions used and the control of highlights by exposure time and shadows by development time. The end result is a grainy, but dream-like image that has a muted color tonal range beyond traditional black and white darkroom printing. Recreating that effect digitally is an equally experimental and time consuming process.
I had a short break between filming scenes for a music video to shoot a couple of portraits with artist H.A.H. (Hungry As A Hostage). Check out his music at hungryasahostage.com. These were done in a dark living room in front of a grey seamless, there were 2 LED lights in front of him, 2 LED lights on the seamless and one LED light behind him.
Album concept art for musician Chip McGuire. I was able to listen to an advanced demo of his single "Drag The Waters," it will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck. Awesome song!
Did a few album concept photos for musician Chip McGuire. Had to work with light that was fading as quickly as we could set up the shots, sunset happened almost an hour earlier than it was expected. Went with a single AB1600 and an Octodome for the shots to keep things moving quickly before it became too dark.
