This is part of an ongoing project I'm collaborating with Greenville Forward on to document everyday people in the city of Greenville.
After returning from Seattle WA, Mez Media asked me to head out to NYC and DC with them to be the Director of Photography for a series of time-lapse videos they're working on. I shot this still of Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge from a park within the DUMBO Historic District in Brooklyn while creating a time-lapse from the same spot. See the full video here.
A few weeks ago I was asked by a friend of ours if I would be interested in taking a family portrit of her and her husband with thier dogs. My first thought was hell no and run in the other direction. My second thought was can I get complete creative freedom. So I responded to her question with my own question. She said yes, I said yes and this is what we made.
About Face is currently up at Pier24 in San Francisco until April 30, 2013. Although I haven’t seen it, yet, I thought I’d share some of the faces I’ve been shooting over the past few weeks.
I had a great time leading a workshop in Charlotte over the weekend for The Light Factory. TLF is a hidden jewel in North Carolina I wish more people new about. They have a great program and offer a ton of photo classes. You can find a schedule here.
We took to the streets on Saturday to create 10 different looks of one model. With the Democratic National Convention coming to the Queen City later this fall, security is tight and photographers are getting hassled. We choose to stay close and worked within a block of the museum. That was our first challenge; working with Katya, our Russian model that spoke very little English was our second challenge. Personally, I find that challenges like this keep photography interesting. No assistant, no make-up or hair artist and this was Katya's first time ever doing any type of photo shoot. Hit the jump to see the other nine images.
