I’ve neglected my blog for the last several months…been busy with work and lazy with the blog! I’ve recently been shooting a lot of jewelry. I want to share 2 recent projects. The first one came from Grip Design in Chicago for Archer & Swan Jewelry. We produced images for the website, look book and brochure. They were great to work with and the ideas were strong. We also have worked on several projects for the local custom jewelry firm 65 Allure. Images were created for their website and ads.

I love shooting all things shiny!!….http://gripdesign.com…http://archerandswan.com

When I think about making photographs it’s nice to be simple and quick…minimal equipment…no restrictions and just react to my surroundings. I spend so much time in the studio (which I truly love) it’s good to get out and see. Here are the results of my two short trips.

We’ve been busy producing sandwich images for Bar-S Foods. They are in the process of updating their photography for collateral and advertising purposes. So, in the last couple of days we’ve had our fill of  ham, turkey, juicy hot dogs and of course the famous corn dog…it’s all quit tasty!

I like grabbing my camera and going on a photo-safari…what I call “A Walk About.” I decided to cruise the neighborhood by the studio and I found a lot of cool things that I would have never seen if I were driving. As I walked I saw a ton of red shapes that turned out to be apple cores…cool! I went back to the studio, grabbed a trash bag and harvested the apple cores and brought my new found booty back to the studio to shoot.

Genus Imports is bringing high-end coffee service to the best of the best in restaurants and resorts. They have the North American license to sell Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee to these high-end purveyors of service and fine food. We were recently contacted by them to produce rich images for their website and marketing materials. They provide their clients with everything including table side service items and custom-made coffee flutes. My warm thanks goes to my assistant and my stylist who provided just the right props to help tell my clients story.

My two favorite improvisational comedians are Jonathan Winters and Robin Williams. Their minds are fast and furious. They can respond to a word, a sentence or a prop of any kind and create their own world and bring the audience along with them. I regularly go on photo walk-abouts and shoot whatever attracts my eye…to me this is like a photographers exercise program. So, I decided to pull things from the house and bring them into the guesthouse and set up an available light studio. Window light, one camera, one lens and me. The idea was to do improv still lifes where objects were composed simply for the pure relationships that developed. I worked fast and loose and had a great time. I processed the files to look and feel like some of the autochrome color images from early in the 20th century….http://www.galerie-photo.com/autochrome_plate.html

Russ Hahn from After Hours Creative contacted me a few weeks ago to do the photography for a new company called Drinique. They specialize in manufacturing high end plastic-ware for hotels, restaurants and bars. The beauty of this new product is the design and longevity of the glasses. I love what light can do with glass and how you can play with highlights and reflections. The cover shot allowed me to really play…thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

I started the blog thing back in November of 2009. I’ve been trying to figure out the meaning behind my efforts and have decided that these posts are simply about photography and my pursuit to make images and ultimately share all this stuff with you. There’s satisfaction in shooting for no particular reason other then exercising my eye and feeling joy. The samples below are from some of my most recent ventures out of the studio.

Photographer Imogene Cunningham was once asked, “What is your favorite photograph?” she replied, “The photograph I haven’t taken yet.” I can certainly agree with that!
