Tate McRae “Pure Knit” Capezio photo and video shoot

Tate McRae “Pure Knit” FINAL CUT from That Werks on Vimeo.

There was one day I got to work with an amazing crew and talented dancer in a blowout extravaganza not only filming a dance video, but also doing a photo shoot on that very same day. We filmed the video with playback of Tate McRae’s original song “Hung Up On You” and choreography she came up with from scratch.

2016: My Year in Photography

From Asbury Park to Vermont to Colorado to my studio in Paterson, New Jersey. Behold the year 2016 through some of my favorite photographs taken for a wide variety of clients…and some of my personal “off the clock” work as well. Although clock watching isn’t something I’ve done in many, many years. Thanks to all, large and small, for taking the time to work with me on a one-on-one basis to craft something special. These are the images that are cool now, but absolutely priceless down the road. I also thank the likes of Matt Koza and Jeff Heckman for bouncing ideas around and being exactly the type of people that fuel the fire of making something out of nothing.

Here’s to many more great shoots with people that share a mutual trust in making images that aren’t just disposable social media fodder. They’re striking, timeless and fun and I intend on keeping it that way in 2017 and beyond.

The Art of Dance Combined With The Art of Making a Huge Mess with Tanner

The latest and greatest shoot with Tanner took place at The Art Factory and we ran through quite a few different rooms and ended things with a flour mess all over the place. I used a combination of daylight and Einstein strobes for many of the shots. The shots with the flour turned out better than I had ever expected and I think you will agree.

My lens on the Sony A7RII was the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art. I am pretty psyched to be moving more toward using Sony E mount lenses as 2017 kicks in. They’re certainly comparable to

Capezio NYCDA Shoot on Times Square Rooftop

Any day I get to photograph the people and places of New York is a good day. Capezio asked me to photograph four talented dancers that were at the flagship store in Times Square. Initially we were going to shoot in front of a seamless backdrop, but decided to liven things up by taking to the roof. It was a bright sunny day and the kids were excited to showcase their dances. These are just a few of my favorite shots!

Thank you to Capezio and New York City Dance Alliance and, of course, the dancers Brady Farrar, Emma York, Jasmin Cruz and Laci Justice.

Fashion Shoot with Ferret Campos Designs

Finally had the opportunity to photograph clothing designs for Ferret Campos Designs. Our nutty schedules aligned while I was in Manhattan doing work with Capezio. I am always trying to maximize my time in Manhattan. Our models for this shoot were Olya Smith and Josephine Webb. Both were extraordinarily easy to work with. They have modeling down, man! The South Street Seaport provided us with an interesting backdrop.

I mainly shot with the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 on my Canon 6D body. Threw a grid on a speedlite here and there and knocked it out of the park.
