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.
Healthcare Fraud Shield commissioned me to design a trade show materials including a photo shoot portraying a mystic theme. We agreed that a gypsy/fortune teller story would be interesting to explore.
Since the photos will be featured in a direct mail campaign, it was important to use vibrant colors and interesting ways of displaying the information. The lighting setup include a softbox for the overall scene and speed lights for the crystal ball and green gel on the rim light for our model’s hair.
Here is the postcard and flyer I designed that will be distributed to event attendees. Thanks to Stone Mountain Printing in Woodbridge, New Jersey for the sweet print job.
