July 2012

Posted: 07/27/2012 in Webpost

Photo&Video Assignment/Behind the Scenes – Hopped on a flight to Minot, ND with my collegue Jim Yost to photograph facilities under construction in the oil and gas fields of Tioga and Ray, North Dakota. Are you an electrian, a welder or a skilled craftsman? If so – Go North my friend – Go North. ND Facts: NW ND has a jobless rate of .9%, it is illegal in ND to serve beer and pretzels at the same time in any bar or restaurant and the wind blows all the time. LOL.

*Wearing full PPE while shooting in 90 degree weather is … kind of a bitch;
For safety reasons – I was forced to shave in case of a H2S leak and needed to use a respirator.

Photo & Video/Tearsheet – Client: Dux Dental. Subjects: Gary Radz DDS & Kendra Clark, Treatment Coordinator. Product: ZONEfree Temporary Cement. Use: Print/Web/Social. Producer: Susan Goddard. Hair & MakeUp: Beth Ryan.

Photo Assignment/Behind the Scenes – Photographed 7 beautiful young women (Ali, Allison, Chelsea, Courtney, Danielle, Hanna & Shelby) for the Pi Kappa Alpha Dreamgirls 2012 calendar. Special Note: I have to give a “shout out” to the KMart at Alameda & South Broadway – if it wasn’t for their close proximity – many of my shoots would have gone … under styled. “Did you ladies bring any black socks today?” ” … and we need a football – or two.” *Final calendar will be posted after publication.

Just For Fun – Attended my Cousins wedding and “snapped” a few images to post on Instagram.

The Bride

Archive – I can’t remember if this (film) image was created for a local Hair Salon or just a Modeling Headshot. One aspect of digital photography that I really enjoy – Image Metadata. Image Metadata contains the date, the time and in modern smart phones – the location that the image was originally created.

Archive, circ. 1999 ?
