#lambstock, part 2

I worked on a little video for one day while at Lambstock. It was raining as it does, and did. I was limping from an ankle injury. But all in all, I think it turned out pretty nice and that I captured a piece of what Lambstock is. As Sean says, it really is hard to define.

Lambstock 2014 part 1

Finally getting around to a few images from Lambstock 2014. While editing the images,  noticed I had a lot of sequences and thought I would play around with them and make some GIF’s. I clearly am avoiding any real work successfully!output_QRvoEW

2014 promos!

Sending out promos is a love/hate task that all photographers have to do. I love it on one hand, I enjoy picking the images, designing the promo, etc. I hate all the labeling and stamping and writing. Some photographers hire people to handle this, others don’t do it very often. I try to send out 4-6 email promos and at least one printed piece each year. This year I chose packs of large, 6×9 post cards, wrapped in a hand stamped kraft paper belly band and included a hand written note. There is a pack of 5 food cards and a pack of 5 people cards, these go out to most all of the people on the list. There is also a pack of 4 sporting cards that only goes out to appropriate recipients. The envelop has another hand stamped logo on it. I have also included a single card highlighting my Instagram account, hoping to gain some creative followers. That’s it. We are sending out 500 to a curated small list of corporate and advertising potential clients. I am considering a small run of about 100 to some magazines. I am sending these out in batches, as soon as I finish about 75 notes, I run them to the post office ( where, I will admit, I underestimated the postage. I considered the size, but not the weight. So instead of $1, each one costs $2.03 to send out! DOH! ) I have received quite a few requests to share what I am sending out and since I am super tight on my cards, I thought I’d make a post here and share what we are doing. I hope y’all like it! And I hope the creatives like it even more!

Latest video! Blue Lining with Chris Franzen

Another video project is complete! A couple of weeks ago I spent some time with my friends, The Franzens. Guy Franzen is a great guy and father to Chris ( and John and Patrick and Biz ). Chris is a great young man who can out fish, well, all of you! The kid is straight up fishy! Chris was getting ready to leave for his summer job, guiding in Alaska (tough life, right!?) and we took some time to do the thing he loves best, blue lining. Blue lining is fishing small mountain creeks for wild, native trout. These are not the creeks that get stocked, these are not the creeks where you have to bring your own rock to stand on, these are not the creeks with gravel parking lots. These are tiny creeks that you can here and maybe not see. They are down at the bottom of the ravine, thru a rhodo grove that will fight you the whole way down. They are loaded with rocks and snakes and hornets and bears and the rest of the wild stuff we have chased away. This is their domain and Chris loves to be in it. Watch the video and learn a little bit more about blue lining!

On a fun note, I finished this video and posted it last night at midnight. Guy got to watch it and loved it. When I went to bed at 1, I saw that Chris had posted it to his tumblr ( how he got on the internet in his tent alongside a river in AK I don’t know! ) I woke up today at 930 ( yea, yea, yea…. ) to a flood of emails from Vimeo about people liking the video and commenting on it. A quick look showed that it had been picked up by LeMouching.com and Trout Unlimited and shared all over Facebook! As of now, 11 hours after I first posted the video, it has been viewed 400 times and is growing! Man, I love social media!

a little BTS ( behind the scenes )

Just finished up the first shoot on Monday for the next Alec Bradley Cigar campaign. It was a blast! Out on the edge of the Everglades, 45 extras, 3 MC’s ( The Defenders, the Shamrocks and the American Freedom Riders ) all in their colors and with their awesome bikes. We almost had an alligator in the shot at the last minute when one of the Gator Boys rode up! We went thru a TON of cigars and a great time was had by everyone. Many thanks to Alec Bradly, Alan Rubin, Jeff Moss, Dylan Moss, G, and Angie without whom this shoot would never have been made. I’ll post up the finished shot as soon as it is published! It looks awesome!AB.biker.crewshot.blog
