Check out the cover of the newest OM Yoga. This is from a studio shoot we did a few months back with a yoga instructor we’ve shot a handful of times for one of our favorite clients, Title Nine. image1

Recently, we shot in Moab for Title Nine’s Fall Catalog – in a mailbox near you now.

The days began and 5am and ended after 8pm, but we had a great crew, great models, and you can’t ask for a more beautiful place to shoot.

For the current issue of WebMD, I was asked to do a magazine profile on Kerri Walsh Jennings, three-time, Olympic Gold medal winner in beach volleyball. The piece focuses on her being pregnant with her third child during last summer’s Olympic games. I photographed her on location at her home in Southern California and at the beach where she trains.

CFO magazine editorial photography cover

Last month we photographed the principals of a private equity firm in San Francisco for a brochure project. This was the first time the firm had commissioned photographs of their people, and they wanted them to have a comfortable look – corporate, but not overly posed or stale. The goal was to create natural looking caught moments of the principals working throughout the offices.

The schedule was tight – planning to photograph 16 people over two days and deliver unique portraits of each person. After scouting the first day for about 3 hours, we kept moving – aiming for 2-3 set ups for each subject in approximately 40 minute intervals.

I enjoy this type of project because of the challenge of coming up with so many unique images. When shooting an editorial portrait, I may scout 5-6 locations and walk the subject through all of them in 45 minutes, but for a corporate library like this, we needed to repeat that a total of 8 times each day.
