I recently had the pleasure of shooting a look book for my good friend/owner of Paul Marie Clothing, Mike Hedgecock. I have been itching to shoot some fashion lately and really had a great time working with these guys. With inspiration from Nick Onken, we hit the streets of Greenlake and got to work. With the exception of a few shots, I primarily used my Canon 50mm 1.4 which is my new favorite lens for shooting photos. Every shot was tack sharp and the depth of field is amazing at wide apertures. I really feel like I'm getting back to my roots with photography. It was so inspiring to work on the fly and just create. I really had the opportunity to be creative and take chances, break rules and make mistakes while creating images I really liked.Read More
A few months ago a long time friend of mine came to me with the need of some photography. He and his business partner are launching a new clothing company to be out in the first quarter of 2011 titled "Paul Marie". Below are some of my favorites from the shoot. Tomorrow, we will be doing another shoot for Paul Marie and my videographer Chris Wojcik, will be there to capture the story behind the scenes. We have some pretty wild shots planned involving roller skates so you won't want to miss it. I will also be doing a live Facebook/Twitter video update in the morning, shot, edited and uploaded all via my iPhone. If you aren't stalking me already I recommend it.
