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 […]

Regular followers of my blog and various forms of social media already know I travel a LOT for shoots. We are talking over 100k miles and thousands spent in baggage fees a year! Thus, a streamlined effective travel kit loaded with gear that doesn’t waste space or weight is crucial for me. I’ve been spending […]

This job came together pretty quickly, but was a fun one. I had a few days to rush order doctor’s uniforms and props, find an ambulance with portable stretcher, arrange a clothing stylist (Tara Papanicholas), a hair/makeup person (Stacie Snyder), and plan out the shot with the client. Everything had to be pre-approved with Discovery Channel so […]
