Tear sheet Thursday

Today is Tear Sheet Thursday!

I did a shoot for Adweek at Boxman Studios of their CEO David Campbell here in Charlotte. Boxman Studios does some amazing things with shipping containers. That’s it, thetas what they do! They build pop up lounges and stores and interactive displays for clients like Samsung, Nike and Hyundai. Some of them electricity, plumbing charging stations, etc. Of course all of this stuff also means that some of them have bars built into them! I enjoyed seeing the warehouse where all the magic takes place and all the containers in the different a stages of construction from raw to finished.

Here is the webpage and a couple of outtakes!

Fly fishing in the Unicorn Valley, a new video

I needed a break. I had been busting my hump for a few months and needed to fish in a beautiful space with big skies. I called Ben and said ‘Hey, can I come fish with you at you favorite secret spot?’ He said ‘Sure come on!’ I then said ‘Maybe we can make a video?’ Can’t keep my mouth shut, can I. And we did. We filmed for 3 days. Ben fished most of the time, I fished here and there ( I did get to fish for a couple of days after filming ) and we made a pretty cool video. No screaming logos, no one shouting about their ‘insert brand name’ rod, just a good story about a good friend and his spot. And a big fish.

#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!
