That’s right. Mr. horsepower, robots, and explosions has a fashion spread in Nylon as part of the XOXO Fashion campaign I shot with Supermodel Lily Aldridge. Never thought I’d see the day! Fun thing to find at the airport.
Cool! My Jeep Cherokee photo is jeep.com’s main image! Kind of a dream come true! This was part of the campaign I shot in Jackson, Wyoming a few months ago for Jeep. Never thought it would make the front page! I think the beauty of Wyoming did half the work for me on this project […]
My friend and designer Nicole Fallek tried out a new business card design for me. Spot uv, foil, blue sides. Who wants one? Email info[at]sondersphotography[dot]com with subject “ds business card” and your address and I’ll send you one.
We had hundreds of entries to my Robocop retouching contest that was announced a few weeks back. You can see the grand prize winner and all of the honorable mentions on Fstoppers.com. There were some really awesome ones.
Recently, a young talented photographer that is on his way to a very promising career asked me about how I handled traveling so much. You see he was about to accept some projects that would take him away from home for an extended period of time and he was concerned about how he would take […]
The Contest As you may have seen on Fstoppers or on this blog, I did one of my dream shoots with an actor wearing an original style Robocop costume along with his replica of the OCP Robocop police Taurus. The Robo suit is actually made from original molds used to create the actual costume used […]
Found this nice surprise on the newsstand this past weekend. Always wanted to be in Car And Driver! Shot this in Jackson Hole, Wyoming of the new redesigned Jeep Cherokee. Love how this came out and seeing it in print!
I love the original Robocop film and my friends and I have obsessed about it for years. I’ve been extremely busy (thankfully) with photoshoots, but I always make sure to clear some time in my schedule to add to my “Unicorn Project” (a personal project dedicated to capturing movie and tv cars). This time I had the […]

Well I wrapped up 2013 with the ultimate personal photoshoot (well, my definition of it anyhow). I’ve always wanted to do my own retro Robocop-themed photoshoot and I flew to Phoenix Arizona to do just that. Why Arizona? How did I get a Robocop suit and Robocop 1990′s Ford Taurus police car? I’ll be releasing […]
Sean Madden, creative director from the ad agencyBrains On Fire, reached out to me earlier this year and asked if given an arsenal of stunt drivers, the newest high performance BMW’s, and a closed race course, could I create a 58 foot long composite print for BMW. My answer? “When can I start?”. Read more […]
When you travel on assignment over 100k miles a year like I do, you start to learn the importance of durable cases for your gear and slimming down on weight to save on baggage fees. For years I have been flying around with the Pelican 1650 to protect my flashes. I had it so fine-tuned […]
I’ve been working on a personal photo series capturing movie and television cars (real and replica)for about 5 years now under the title “The Unicorn Project”. Most recently, I had an opportunity to photograph a replica A-Team Van and KITT from Knight Rider while I was in Los Angeles. These happen to be two of my […]
Every year, as the holiday season comes around, people will email and message me asking what to buy themselves or a loved one to start or expand upon their love for photography. A camera that offers interchangeable lenses, easy to use, good quality, compact, reliable, and can be had for under $1000 with a lens. […]
Just wrapped the 10+ hour official 2014 photoshoot for Dale Earnhardt Jr and the #88 National Guard Nascar team down in Hammerhead studios in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was awesome! I’ve always wanted to take Dale Jr’s portrait. He’s one of my favorite NASCAR drivers, so I was really honored when I was contacted to […]
For those of you that are unfamiliar with what Not A Bully is: I have created a new dog portrait series dedicated to telling the story of rescued/adopted bully breed dogs (particularly Pitbull and Pit mixes) that suffered difficult early lives, but despite their early challenges have returned to the community as wonderful service animals, family dogs, […]
Last month I was in Las Vegas shooting a cover feature on Brendon Urie, the lead singer of the band Panic At The Disco. I’m so pleased with how the entire shoot panned out. I can’t show you all of the photos until the magazine is out next month, but here are a few approved […]
Recently, I was in the Mojave Desert filming a music video project. The plot was centered around a road trip starring the musician and her friends. I cannot say much more than that, but I can say I had the opportunity to transport the vehicle between locations along historic Route 66. I mean, if you […]
I recently started upgrading my Paul C Buff White Lightning flash heads with the Profoto D1 Air mono-flash heads. Being an on-location portrait photographer, easy power sources are very important to me. Sometimes I will land in a city and will need to go right to right to set and picking up a generator isn’t […]
Photo Magazine in Honk Kong interviewed me while I was on my Phase One speaking tour through China. Looks like they profiled my work very prominently! I’m honored! It’s really exciting to be able to share my work with the literal other side of the planet. Now if someone would translate it for me! Haha.
Behind The Scenes Of My Photoshoot With A Custom Transformers Bumblebee Edition Camaro (With Light Diagram)
Just had a fun quick 30 minute shoot shoot with this custom Chevrolet Camaro by Bubba’s East Coast Rods and Customs in Northern Virginia. Shot with this with my Phase One IQ140 medium format, two 1200 watt strobes on battery packs, a circular polarizer filter to minimize reflections on the paint. Processed with the big help of Nik […]
