polaroid breakfast

We kicked off the first of 6 I Am Second shoots that I have booked between now & the end of August. I have been working with most of these peeps for a little over a year. Inevitably, polaroid time turns a little goofy – see also my friend Lan’s attempt to make me laugh during an I Am Second shoot last year.

All to say, we have a good time.

While we were waiting for our first subject yesterday morning, we ate breakfast, made a few images & laughed.

“Then the LORD said to Moses, “See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts – to make artistic designs… and to engage in all kinds of craftsmanship.”

-Exodus 31:1-5

tomorrow marks one year of my involvement with I Am Second and the first person i shot for the campaign was Jason Castro. i remember being pretty nervous.

i had pitched the idea of shooting production stills to use as additional content on, but the folks at E3 knew they would need studio portraits for the print & outdoor efforts, so they asked me to try my hand at those as well. at the time, studio photography wasn’t something that i had a ton of experience with – which was the root cause of 97% of my nervousness.

here’s that first image:

into the rafters we went

on Monday i got a call from the Dallas Stars to come and shoot the game against the Detroit Red Wings for some promotional material they are putting together. thankfully, they didn’t want me to shoot like a sports photographer, which i am not. they wanted me to find the things that were going on away from the puck and off the ice. it was an AWESOME night, that took me from the belly of the arena into the rafters to see my favorite game in a really unique way.

and your Dallas Stars did an awesome job of taking everyone in the arena on a similar journey.

the hated Wing entered the game on a six game winning streak and it seemed impossible to think that the captain-less Stars and their young blue line could do anything to keep a repeat of the 6-1 beat down of just a few nights earlier from happening again. the picture looked even more bleak when the Stars gave up two early goals. however, they faught, kicked and clawed their way back and tied it up in the final three minutes of the third.

it took the extra period to do it, but the Stars put together an awesome victory. i wasn’t able to appreciate what was happening on the ice as much as i would have liked – but, i did come home with some images i’m really proud of.

here are a few of the outtakes that i really like.
