Some days on set, we get lucky and get to spend an afternoon with a living legend. Earlier this year while we were down in Texas for our Unforgettable San Antonio tourism project, we did just this – shooting the country and alt-rock star, Alejandro Escovedo. Even if his name isn’t immediately familiar, chances are you still have heard his songs; for over thirty years he’s been on the scene, performing recording, touring and making awesome music. Thankfully for us, Alejandro found the time to spend an afternoon in front of our lens – keep reading to see the results…Read More
Some photos can be years in the making – even if we don’t realize it at the time. Would you believe that our latest conceptual portrait started in 2008, only to be finished five years later in 2013? Would you also believe that this image took two separate trips to Illinois as well as a costume fashion shoot to finally bring Chris’s vision to life. We wouldn’t necessarily believe it either, but sometimes the truth behind our photos can be stranger than fiction.
So how did this all happen? keep reading for the full story…Read More
There are some truly creative people in this industry. Let’s face it, you’ve got to be constantly concepting, developing, and executing or you get left in the dust. I’m fortunate to work with some really dynamic and inspiring people, ranging from art directors, to producers, to creative directors, photo editors, art buyers, and print producers. Instead of questions about email blasts, printed promos, and portfolio reviews, I think that it’s time that I put some of them on the spot to show us their meaning of Life. “The meaning of Life” may be a little far flung to answer in only ten questions, but hopefully these interviews will serve to distill some of the inspired and intellectual energy of the creatives that we work with.
There’s something to be said about a photographer who can cut through the noise and capture authentic emotion and feeling from their subjects. It’s even better when that photographer is a master at creating a a mood and feel in his images that not only entices the viewer, but makes them jealous they’re not living the life of the models in front of the lens. David Martinez has an acute sense of what makes a compelling lifestyle image, and I’m proud that we share the same agency. Enough from me though, I’ll let David tell the rest…Read More
Earlier this year, we spent quite some time in San Antonio, Texas shooting an unforgettable tourism campaign for the city. Thanks to that project, we were given the amazing opportunity to experience and photograph all aspects of the city and it’s inhabitants – even the animals at the San Antonio Zoo & Sea World. While shooting for the advertising campaign, we also snapped a few portraits of our animal subjects that we’re excited to share today. Of course, what would an experience like this be without behind the scenes? Keep reading to see more portraits as well as how these photos came together…Read More
You may remember earlier this year, we were featured on the cover of AtEdge Macroview 13. Being a part of this select group of photographers is awesome enough, but to have our image of Tumblr CEO David Karp grace the cover of their yearly publication was a truly an honor.
The good news continues as Chris has also been featured and interviewed in a short film documenting the AtEdge Story. He shares his thoughts on what it means to be part of the group as well as showcases a few moments on set from a recent shoot this summer.
Not a bad debut for being on the other side of the camera if you ask us. Also, stay tuned to the blog in the near future as we’ll be releasing our own full length behind the scenes edit from the shoot featured in the video above.Read More
Earlier this year we received a call from our editors at Field and Stream magazine to photograph their Heroes of Conservation finalists for 2013. Since 2005, the magazine has been profiling and recognizing a handful of dedicated sportsmen and women who work to protect, improve, or create wildlife habitat and embody the spirit of conservation.
We’ve had the honor of meeting and photographing some of these heroes in the past, (you may remember we blogged about the shoots last fall) and this year was particularly significant because we were given the task to photograph all six of the Heroes. Taking us from Wisconsin to Maryland, Arizona, Idaho, Wyoming, and Oklahoma in the span of two weeks, this assignment was a whirlwind tour of the country. We wrapped up these shoots having met and made great photos of six inspiring conservationists. We’re excited to share the stories and the behind the scenes for each shoot – our second adventure comes from shooting in Arizona with turkey hunter and retired US Forest Service Office, Steve Sams.
