The New Year – Looking Ahead

With 2012 ahead of us, we’re excited – in the near future we’ll hopefully have some very exciting news to announce, and beyond that there’s an entire year ahead to get ready, gear up, and look forward to.

Looking back for a moment – Chris has been blogging since 2009, and we really focused on it last year as a way to share new work, look behind the scenes, explain our thoughts, and connect with people. We searched for the meaning of life with creatives and innovators alike, live-blogged an adventure in Hawaii, shared stories about meeting and making photos with inspirational individuals and amazing athletes. All things considered, 2011 was a great year and we were happy to share it like never before.

As for what the future holds for this blog, we’re curious. What would you like to see? What types of insight and information can we offer? Let us know, comment on this post, send us an email, reach out on twitter @crismanphoto or @robertluessen or post on our Facebook.

Here’s to a great year ahead. Cheers!

New Desert Landscapes

You may remember back in July, we spent a day shooting in the deserts east of LA. The heat was triple digits plus, but we braved the elements to make some killer pictures. We also may have done a bit of off-roading in our rental car to make the above photo possible (sorry Hertz).

Here are two of the shots that just came out of retouching. There are a few more on the way, along with some landscapes from Chris’s trip to Italy. Stay tuned for more.

Florida Landscapes

Everywhere we travel, I try and find time to make photographs. We spent a good portion of the winter this year down in Florida and the southeast, working on personal and commercial projects, creating a new body of work, and shooting some editorial assignments. I also made time to shoot a few landscape photographs, like the image above, of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Keep reading to see a few behind the scenes shots and another landscape from this winter in Florida.
