Earlier this year I had the opportunity to shoot the inspirational Nick Vujicic for his ministry Life Without Limbs.

Labels Lie Campaign Pt.2

July 10, 2012

You may remember earlier this year I posted the portrait series in the Labels Lie Campaign. Recently the second campaign was launched.

Several weeks ago a friend and co-worker announced she would be leaving us here at PlainJoe. This also coincided with her birthday. We thought it would be fun to do a mini photo shoot with her. I also thought it would be a good opportunity to test out a tri-flash adapter I picked up on ebay. We headed out after work with our sights set on creating a great image and also producing the first behind the scenes video for the blog.

Labels Lie

I had the opportunity to shoot the Labels Lie campaign for People of the Second Chance. It was probably the biggest shoot I have been apart of. The style is so very different than anything I have done in the past.

Vu & Sophia – Engaged

June 29, 2011

A few months back I had the chance to shoot a good friend and his fiance. Since they both are from the L.A. area I thought it would be a great opportunity to meet up and collaborate with the legendary Jessica Drossin.

Eden – Senior Portrait

February 22, 2011

There are several things I’ve always said I would never do. One of those things is to take a female portrait on train tracks. Well I didn’t stick too that plan. A friend had ask me to take her picture for her Senior Portrait (which is a first for me). So I thought to myself, “Challenge Accepted!”.

Family Christmas 2010

December 7, 2010

This year I decided to do something different for our family portrait. I thought it would be interesting to attempt to do a holiday scene. Several weeks ago while my brother was on vacation I decide to let myself in to use his nice kitchen and of course I came armed with lights.

Natural Backlight

November 19, 2010

While in El Paso shooting a band I had the opportunity to go to some new locations. One of them was this really cool loft that had a huge window. Trying to come up with new ideas I decided I would try to use the window as a huge backlight.

iphone camera apps + Photoshop

September 16, 2010

Have you ever thought it would be great if could use some of those cool effects or textures from your iphone camera apps and apply them to your photos in photoshop? Huzzah!!! I will show you how. (I have also included a lighting diagram for this shot as well)

Yes you are at the right blog! Recently my brother in-law asked me if i would do his engagement photos. I was very hesitant but I thought it would be good practice to get out of my comfort zone. I probably bit off more than I could chew. In the end it was good experience. I learned a lot which would help the next time (if there is ever a next time). All of it was shot natural light. If you make it to the end I’ve listed some tips that helped me.
