Last year around this time we completed one of the last shoots for Continental Airlines before the merger. We were on four aircraft with more than 30 models and kept it all on schedule.  Many thanks to producer Mike Hulsey and our awesome crew.

"My Life as a Doll" Tara Conley & Tria Woods

This (not to be missed) exhibit is opening this Friday (11-11-11) at DiverseWorks, 6 to 9pm.  My friends Tara (artist), and Tria (writer), created an amazing art installation based on a doll character that invites you to explore social and gender issues that women experience.   We had a fun shoot!

Medellin!!!










In August I spent three weeks in Medellin, Colombia visiting my brother-in-laws family.  It was a breath of fresh air.  Lots of lazy mornings, lap swimming, learning to salsa dance at family parties and enjoying great food!

Jennifer - Tintype

Here's another recently produced tintype of Jennifer Almaguer.   I poured three plates for this session.  After the first plate I remixed a fresh developer and started getting better results.  I really need to keep track of the shelf life on the chemistry.  This is the final plate from our four hour session.

Nicole - Tintype

I recently produced this tintype of my friend Nicole Haagensen.  It takes about an hour to produce each plate and I'm still struggling with this process.  Immediately after I develop, fix and rinse I shoot these with my dslr to preserve the image.    Sometimes as soon as 30 minutes later the my plates are developing black spots.   I know I'll need to mix fresh chemistry soon to get my plates archival again.  The trick is finding out which chemistry is causing the problem.

Artist Joy Beckler




Had a very interesting studio shoot with Joy Beckler yesterday. Joy is an emotionally intense artist and it was fascinating to document Joy in her element.

Story Boutique - Outtakes



After I finish a shoot, I'll edit for my client, provide high rez selects then store in a folder on my hard drive. Sometimes it's nice to go back and edit a job for myself. I'll start sharing some of these images on my blog. Here are two shots from an assignment for Story Boutique.

Lise Liddell CD titled "Laced"



I really enjoyed working with musician Lise Liddell on this project. Creative Director Kenneth Finch (Finch Creative), had some great ideas to tie into the laced concept. The CD was released a couple of months ago and is now available on CD Baby.

Amy Dunn - Tintype





Amy stopped by today for a tintype shoot. It took a little trial and error, but then the wind calmed and the stars aligned. I know Amy as a professional model, but she's also an attorney and a great photographer. Check out her work AmyDunn.com
