Its food time again!!! Osso is a restaurant at the NC Music Factory, it is located next to. Osso is a very popular stop in Charlotte and has even been featured on The Bachelorette. Be sure to check out Osso on your night out, you will not be disappointed!!
Hello everyone! This past weekend a buddy of mine, invited me to go with him to shoot the Saving Able concert and Amos’ Southend. Trace is a concert photographer that I met when working for Harley-Davidson, be sure to check out his site for Sonic Zoom Studio…
Amos’ Southend is a really cool venue and they get some really awesome performers. As I mentioned this concert was Saving Able, along with Elisium, and Another Lost Year opening for them. Saving Able was of course awesome! But I want to note that Elisium also won me over with their rock version cover of The Safety Dance. So enjoy the images below and please check out everyone’s sites as well…
Anyone who knows me, knows I love food! So getting hired to shoot a restaurant is one of my dream clients! Eight is a new restaurant at the NC Music Factory, it is located next to Osso. Eight specializes in Sushi and Asian cuisine and supports local farmers! They use local farms for appetizers and small plates, and they even used a local artist for all of the graffiti artwork in the restaurant. Be sure to check out Eight as soon as you can, you will not be disappointed!!
Now here is something pretty awesome, I got called in to shoot behind the scenes of a promo being shot at the Charlotte Motor Speedway for the up coming movie The Identical. What a fun day this was! I got to ride in a Camera Truck on around the speedway, met a Nascar team, and I got to meet the star Blake Rayne. Check out the promo piece below and some my favorite images from the day.
As a commercial photographer the market can be filled with some really interesting things to shoot, so when Johnston North America needed to shoot one of their latest industrial street sweeper machines for a national ad campaign I was ready and excited!
Johnston is an international company that builds the number one rated industrial street sweepers on the market. Big rating, big company, and this was going to be one big shoot! The shoot required both on-location images AND studio images. Even my studio was not big enough for this machine so we booked of a couple of days, rented out a production sound stage and I went to work.
The location images had to show the machine in one of its targeted habitats (construction sites) and the studio images had to show the details and build quality of the machine itself. This was an amazingly fun shoot! So with out further banter, I give you the brand new Johnston ES351 street sweeper.
P.S. Johnston was kind enough to send over a copy of one of the posters that is on display at the American Public Works Association Public Works Congress & Expo (APWA), heralded as the largest public works gathering in the world, to be held in Toronto, Ontario at the Metro Toronto Convention Center this weekend for the debut of the ES 351.
I had the chance to work with Mike Powell again photographing his latest cosplay creation of The Punisher… This is just a small teaser shoot for a much larger scale shoot we will be doing in the next month or two, and just to up the ante the shoot will feature a full on Punisher Mobil put together by myself… Enjoy!
Today I would like to share another magazine feature for Lift-Off! This year I have worked with Carolina Bride Magazine on a few shoots, for the most recent issue they surprised with some really cool products to shoot. They brought some really awesome hand made jewelry and some tasty frozen treats! And then to top that off, they gave me one full page and a full two page spread in the issue!
If you are a bride to be you should definitely check out the magazine, pick one up at your local news stand or online.
Today I present a beautiful luxury automobile for your enjoyment, this an Audi A8L 4.2 Quattro. Two sun roofs, supple leather, real wood trim, a V8 engine, so many great features… What more can I say about this beautiful machine? I’ll just let the images say the rest…
