It’s been awhile since I really blogged. Just to give you an update on what’s been happening in my life. I took the plunge and I’m officially a full time photo freelancer — again. Working a “9-5″ in the media field was mentally, physically and creatively straining and restricting. Majority of the time I wasn’t able to speak or blog about what I was working on. It was fun being the Photo/Video Producer over at Back Stage magazine, I got to meet Alexis Bledel (still in love with her eyes), Matthew Broderick and got to work and become friends with Robin Holland. Arg! Wish I got to meet Amy Adams. Publicist suck!
Meet Al, the founder and designer for Fresh Goods Clothing:
Last week we were out in Indianapolis shooting Victory MFG‘s fall lookbook (coming soon). I have to thank everyone involved with the shoot and for the people who were very hospitable and welcoming. I had an awesome time in Indiana. Think I gained a few too.
We stopped over at a tattoo shop, High Caliber where a friend of Heath, Victory MFG works out of. I love walking around aimlessly and randomly around any type of storefronts. I usually do it until someone yells at me to get out. Love that my camera gives me access.
Eph and Heath, Victory MFG helping Charlie, Fresh Goods pick out a font for his tattoo.
Very friendly and professional tattoo artist Corey Clark working on Eph’s first hand tat.
Closing in on a font.
Charlie’s tat: Iconique. French for Iconic tattooed by Trinity.

Al’s tribute to his daughter Kymora.
The pretty cool thing that High Caliber has is a garden in the back of the shop where all of the artists that comes through contributes to the back. Here clients and artist can relax.
Forgot this little guys name. But they have two stray cats that live in the garden. You feed them once and they’ll never leave. Plus they keep the family of squirrels from munching all day on the peach tree.
I’m currently in Dallas taking a little time off to visit my dad. Haven’t seen him in about two years. But back to work later this week. Next stop San Diego California. My first desert photoshoot with Fresh Goods.

The New York City Department of Records spent the last four years digitally scanning and archiving over 870,000 images of good old New York, New York. The New York City Municipal Archives is available right here. This is a great resource for Photo Editors and Researchers looking for images from New York dating to the early 1900s. Everything from the cobblestone streets being constructed to baseball legend Babe Ruth. And some crime scene photos. Almost all the images have been shot by Municipal employees. Did I mention that these images have “never been seen before”?
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of L.L. Bean, the company has recreated one of the customers favorite covers in L.L. Beans past. After reading L.L. Bean: The Making of an American Icon by Leon Gorman grandson of Leon Leonwood Bean better known as L.L. Photographer Randal Ford worked closely with Marcia Minter, L.L. Bean’s Creative Director VP but with plenty of creative “control” (a photographers dream job situation) to put a digital take on a classic Catalog cover that help L.L Bean become the brand that they are today.
Remember to keep a close eye on the details and have a great team to execute the pre/post production. That’s the key to a successful
commercial photo shoot. The final product can be purchased here as well as the original cover.
To celebrate our 100th anniversary, we recreated our popular Spring 1933 catalog cover with renowned photographer Randal Ford. Go behind-the-scenes to see how we did it.
As a photo editor I run into some bizarre photo’s on the stock agency world. Some great, awe-inspiring shots and some that are just too awesome for words. Don’t get me wrong. It’s a competitive, tedious and tremendous work to sell to a stock agency especially Getty Images. But sometimes I love the ones they include. Here’s one image I really, really like. Love this photographer’s humor.
