“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 iamsecond.com, 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:

We began shooting for I Am Second again today. Being around the stories, looking through the lens, getting a glimpse into God’s great big beautiful revolution was as we last left it – completely humbling. I’m excited about what is in store for us and for the movement this year. Adam, our creative director showed me some print stuff he’s working on that is next level sick, Scott was blowing my mind with some of the ways he’s evolving the visuals in the films. And then there were the stories…

Speaking of the stories, COLLIDE magazine is running a feature story on the story behind the stories of I Am Second in their March\April issue – soon to be on newsstands. The entire creative team was interviewed for the piece and Daniel Darnell did an outstanding job of putting the story together. He sent over an advance PDF to me about a week and a half ago & I think it’s a really great piece of design as well. Here are a few tears:

Be on the lookout for it and pick up a copy. It’s a pretty great read & quite pretty to look at.

**EDIT.

turns out you can’t pick COLLIDE up on newstands at this point, however the super awesome people at the magazine will gladly sell you a single issue for only $5. just send them a note here. i just recieved my copy today & i have to say it looks even better in print, so it will be a well spent 5-spot and much better for your soul and waistline than a comparably priced Starbucks coffee drink.

…this morning, i came across this:

and i just thought i’d get a great Heika article about Brett Hull’s creativity or some clever spin on the Sean Avery debacle.

i have a few thoughts about the ads, but i’ll keep those to myself. i think the photography looks good & i’m glad to see a web property like I Am Second being advertised online. it makes a lot of sense. i wonder if getting served three ads on a single article is strategy or coincidence?

a while back i had the opportunity to photograph a very popular American Idol Jason Castro for that campaign that launches this fall I Am Second. well, he’s decided to use one of the behind-the-scenes images from that session as the placeholder on his website.

he wanted a design that really captured his laid back, new hippie persona. i think Kevin’s design smashed it out of the park; setting the whole thing in a weathered vinyl record sleeve was pure genius.
