Check out the new issue of Home Remodeling, it features a photo by the bald guy writing this, on the cover. It was a sweet couple days of shooting with one of the coolest editor/writers around, Jennifer DeFoe. As often is the case in the free-lance world, I had shot quite a few articles that she had written in the past few years, but we had never met. This was our first shoot together, and we have a slew of them planned next week for the fall issue, so stay tuned! This is an awesome resource for homeowners, and vendors alike.
Also, kudos to the art director for matching the type to the green apples on the counter, love it!

Since this is my first day of blogging, I'm going to back track a little bit to last month, with the release of the 2009 Annual issue of Chatham Magazine. This is put out by Rabideau Publishing, the same folks that put out Cape Cod Magazine and South Shore Living. If you haven't seen this yearly edition, it is awesome!! Full page photo layouts, and paper as thick as fruit roll-ups, you just want to eat it. What I loved about shooting for this edition was the diversity of the assignments. From butt-cracks to bannisters, hot-mods to hot-rods (and that is why I am a photographer and not a writer) these assignments had me all over Chatham! I loved setting up my White Lightning strobe with Vagabond battery pack, and blasting it through the windshield of Bruce Cook's Chevy Nova to make him look tough. Another memorable shoot was standing on an eight foot step-ladder looking down on Molly and Cassandra while our art director Chris Lewis and assistant Bryce, perfectly placed the tennis balls around the models in the waning Wequassett light. Hurry up to Chatham and scoop up a copy before they are gone! Last year, not an issue was to be found by the end of the summer!

My First Post!

Well, it is 2009 and I am finally entering the "blog world". You can get to this blog at the opening of my website Here I will be posting recent articles and things of interest happening in my world! This blog will be filled with shameless self-promotion. However, it will also be filled with useful links to various partners that I work with, and always--some nice photography to look at! I'll try to keep the self-absorbed rambling to a minimum, but it is a blog after all, and if there is something that I am thinking about that I find important enough to write--I will. Please check back often!!
