Just got word that this portrait I did received a gold award in Graphis’ 2012 Photo Annual. The location I photographed in is owned by a painter who used to live in Paris, but now draws little Parisian vignettes here in the States and sells them at tourist destinations back in Paris. Kind of funny.
Here’s a poster series I’ve been working on with the creative team of Ryan Anderson and Gary Sume for the Hogle Zoo. The zoo brought in animatronic dinosaurs and these ads had some fun with the likely outcome if they were real. Ryan tasked me with making giant food bowls and coaxing these beautiful animals into them to get the shot we needed. The headline: ‘The Dinosaurs are Here.’ The truth: I really didn’t make giant bowls. Look for them in Arhive’s Volume 6/2011 and the 2012 National Addys.
Ironically, I considered pulling this image from my book at one point. It’s so good to have a second set of eyes you respect. You can click here to see my little CA Fresh feature online.
I’m excited to once again be recognized in PDN’s Photo Annual. This image was about creating a moment where someone’s past and someone’s future collide for just a brief moment. A little behind the scenes anecdote: the young boy in the cape is behaving himself take after take not for the money, but for a giant chocolate muffin and some Matchbox cars he’s been promised. Oh, to be young and focused on the important things of life!
Just found out some more of my images were recognized in this year’s IPA’s. So, in the never-ending world of self promotion – I’m writing about it. There. One is a personal shot, and the series is from The Road Home annual report for homeless families. Oh, I should give a thanks to Phil Hunter and Ann Ford at McCann who called on me to shoot The Road Home images.
A few of my images were recognized with honorable mentions for this years IPA’s. Always nice to get a little love. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place category winners have their photos up on the IPA’s site. Go now and see
I’m excited to have one of my images in PDN’s photo annual this year. Like I learned in advertising 101 – ‘Sex sells, baby!’ Even senior sex. Well – only if it’s funny I guess. The talent are actually husband and wife and were great sports. The woman, bless her heart, had trouble standing up after such a long stint of me having her bend over, over and over (gotta get that rump just right).
A huge thanks and props to Anne Black who styled and dressed the set. Here’s a few production photos.
