My portfolio

While I wait for my new website to be built I need something online to show people more then a couple shots at a time. This is my current portfolio and the thing that ties them all together is that they were all shot with some sort of flash or flash and ambient light combination.

On the set.

I spent the afternoon on the set of a movie some of my friends are making as the official photographer. This was the second day I did this and even with 300+ zombies at my disposal one of those days this is by far my favorite portrait from the set. This actor was done for the day and got to peel off his appliances but he still looked like he could be in character. I shot most of the day with my Nikon P7000 due to it just being a lot quieter on set while the main cameras were rolling and a little bonus was I got to shoot some B roll footage that might get used you never know.

Hiking with Justine

When I was in LA some one showed me this cool hiking trail on the backside of the Topenga Canyon State Park. I went there several times to shoot photos or just hike. One of those hikes I went there with my friend Justine and on the way back out I saw this scene and was able to grab it quick before she passed through it. Shot with a Nikon D300 with a 35mm 1.8 and processed in Lightroom.

A little late night sax

I did a shoot last night with Brett Cease from Bemidji. I had seen him playing sax with a friend of mine a few weeks ago and set out to do some saxophone photos.

These were all shot with a Nikon D300 w/ a 16-85mm Nikkor lens. I used my Elinchrom Quadra with a 20 degree grid on some of the shots otherwise it was just a hard light out of a 7" reflector. Everything was processed in Adobe Lightroom.

Since I got back from LA my friend Mike has really stepped up and helped me out with some of my photo ideas that I came up with over the winter.
For this one I put my Elinchrom Quadra flash outside and fired it back into the bar through the window.
This was a one light set up, I had the Quadra set up camera right with a 10 degree grid to control light spill. The light on his back is late evening sun that was a happy accident.
This was lit with a Quadra camera left fired through a 53" Octabank.
Same light as previous image. All shot with a 16-85 Nikkor, Nikon D300 and processed in Adobe Lightroom.
