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

This week we completed the framing of the latest Facing Chemo exhibit – Before & After. The show hung this past Wednesday at a corporate event at Genentech. We are looking forward to seeing the show hang again soon.

No square dancing today, but the goats and the tractor still managed to get in on the action.

It was time to create an outdoor studio at the ranch, and Bob wanted to collaborate with professional ballet dancers.  Hanging two 20×20 foot silks, and pulling in a ton of gear, he set up a ‘seamless’ studio in the corral, adjacent to the studio – a wonderful amount of space for he and the dancers to play.  Despite a slashed finger, the dismantled trampoline and a few extra sunburns, I’d say the day was a great success.

What do YOU think?  Send us a note.

Here’s a teaser…

In May we welcomed a number of guests at OMI Gallery who came to hear Bob talk about the Facing Chemo project.  We’re honored that a handful of participants came to both listen and take part in the discussion.  A special thank you to Ferne, who agreed to have her portrait taken during the event so that Bob could walk attendees through the process, and to Dexter who bravely shared her experience with the group as well.

I’ve shot video for The Dailey Method before – the What Is?
video on their home page has been viewed over 50,000 times.  So, when this exercise method with over 40 studios around the US, asked me to shoot a viral video on location in Chicago and San Francisco this spring, I jumped at it.
The goal: to increase TDM’s social media presence.

The production was quick and lean, just an assistant doing lighting and sound while I shot and directed.  We started by asking regulars at their studios, “What does it mean to you to Do It Dailey?”  We riffed from there.  We have hours of footage for additional pieces – this is the first:
