Did a quick project at The Dance Arts Academy yesterday. This may have been the only frame where these little ballerinas were condensed and inactive enough to photograph them all together.
This may or may not be a good day to think of the Southern Hemisphere enjoying summer. This is an outtake from a commercial shoot that took place outside of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Smiles like this aren't abundant in Northern Michigan when it's 0 deg. Fahrenheit.
Great story in this week's Northern Express on The Accidentals -- an incredibly talented local music duo, photographed in the tunnels underneath The Village at Grand Traverse Commons (AKA the former State Hospital). Behind-the-scenes photo by Ben Law Photography
Light testing for an upcoming cover shot. Helena did a fantastic job the stand-in! Look for more in this style down-the-road...
Did a quick in-home maternity shoot last week with Jaclyn and her son Brooks.
The Northern Express' cover shot this week via my iPhone 4s. Yep. Sometimes you don't need a fancy camera...
And cool design work, Kyra Cross Poehlman! ;)
We just wrapped the Flatout Flatbread wrap shoot. The new Flatout packaging should be in stores nationwide shortly. Special thanks to chef & food stylist, Michael Peterson (owner of Siren Hall, Lulu's, Anchor Station and Antrim Catering). We were lucky to have him whipping-up some delicious-looking wraps, AND for hosting our mobile studio in the dining room of Siren Hall. Following are a few behind the scenes photos of Michael Peterson and Stacey Marsh, owner of Flatout, hard at-work wrap-building...
A very collaborative effort went into producing this week's Northern Express Cover. Special thanks to Alicia Caldecott & her awesome crew from A Day In May Events for doing most of sourcing and hauling of props. Big thanks to John Robert Williams for the use of his spacious studio. And, as always, big thanks to big Ben Law for assisting me and keeping me on-track -- and for documenting the shoot.
My assistant, Ben Law, standing-in for a lighting test last week for an elaborate portrait set-up at John Robert Williams' studio. Big thanks to John for use of the space! More details on the job soon...
