Christmas 2013

December 17, 2013

Every year I make our family Christmas card using my kids. Every year I try outdo the previous year. I have succeeded this year. Click in to see the setup and the ones from previous years.

Nick Vujicic

February 26, 2013

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

Adele – D800

July 31, 2012

Last week I had a shoot with Adele from Willow Model Management. This was a great opportunity to break in the D800 and see how it performs. In this entry I go over the pro & cons of the D800, include a lighting diagram as well as a short behind the scenes video.

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.

I had the great opportunity to be one of four photographers who participated in a [Framed] episode featuring the wonderful Photographer Brooke Shaden. It was definitely out of my comfort zone and a challenge but I left leaving inspired and very glad I did it. This post will walk thru how I achieved the image and showcase the images from the other photographers.

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.
