I saw my old friend Aaron Gritzka today.  Aaron is a talented multi-media artist and occasional co-conspirator.  We spent some time catching up on life before I pulled out my camera and softbox to capture these 3 frames.  Thanks Aaron!

Tonight I got a chance to grab a couple of frames of the talented artist and Creative Catalyst Consultant Ben Dantoni for my 3 Frames Project.  BenD can be a tough one to tie down, he is an old friend and a very busy man who I don’t get to see enough of.  I love spending time with BenD and I love photographing him.. tonight I got to do both.  We had gotten together for a rare couple of hours to catch up on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  I punctuated our time together by grabbing my camera to catch some frames before he headed out the door.  Thanks BenD!

Stephen Colbert needs new art so I “remastered” his portrait by request of the Colbert Nation.  I know why I remastered it the way I did and what it represents to me.  Please comment with your interpretation of my interpretation.  I would love to hear it.


Today I got the chance to photograph Andrew Garrettson, a talented actor I have the pleasure of crossing paths with on occasion.  Andrew has a production opening soon and needed some updated headshots so he stopped by my studio to sit under the lights for a few minutes.  I decided to work “light” and used my 580ex speedlight through a softbox as my main and I used a reflector for bounce fill.  This allowed me to move quickly around the studio where I had different backgrounds already stationed.  I also tethered my Canon 5DM2 to our MacBook Pro so that we could immediately see that we were getting the results that the client wanted.  And we nailed it.  Here are 2 of Andrew’s the top picks from the session.  Word.


My friend Bill stopped by this evening for a cocktail and some late night chatter.  It is always great to shoot the shit with Bill and we solve all the world’s problems with a little help from our friends.  Like with everyone who stops by these days, I roped Bill into a couple of frames in front of my lens.  He sat for my 3 Frames Project which made me realize that I need to have a separate session solely to photograph Bill’s body art.  He is in the middle of a lot of work and his evolving canvas is stunning.  Bill and I have plans to shoot his tattoos in a couple of weeks which absolutely rules.  Some of Bill’s work is NSFW so don’t expect everything to show up here.. but that is always the case.  Some of my best work stays private for various reasons.  Anyway.

Here is Bill today in 3 Frames.

and here is a later shot from outside the 3 Frames series…
