I was happy to spend some time recently with Martha Lynn Kale (and her beautiful son!) to shoot the May cover of REAL Magazine. The story was about the work-life balance we all try hard to achieve, and it was a lot of fun to work on these images. I am looking forward to becoming more 'balanced' one day.
I'm happy to share some work I've done for Adonit's new "Create" campaign. Adonit is a tech company that makes incredible styluses and keyboards for iPads and iPhones. Their top product, the Jot Touch, connects via Bluetooth, meaning that it gives you pressure sensitivity on the stylus. I got my hands on one and enjoy using it. The idea with the new campaign is that we are all creators at heart. The imagery is designed to showcase how people are using Adonit's products in their own creations, regardless of their age/occupation/etc.
Here are some of the images we produced:
A quick note here to let you know that I've updated the website! It features a completely new design with more, larger images as well as behind the scenes video. You'll also see my Italy work and our holiday card work. There are separate versions of the website for desktop, iPhone/mobile, and iPad users. To check it out, click the Portfolio tab above or click here.
I'd love to hear your comments! Do big images work better?
Update: I've deactivated this plugin, as apparently I can't find a search field once it's running. Kinda need that. If you have an iPad, bust it out and take a look at this blog on it. I just installed a new Wordpress plugin called OnSwipe which makes your blog look like the Flipboard app! It's still in beta, but it looks very promising. Check it out, and if you like it, open up the plugins section on your admin page and search for OnSwipe.
I've had this image in my head for a few months. I don't even remember where the idea initially came from. Back in June, I started sketching out ideas for a new series of images titled The Shameless Self. The images are tongue-in-cheek illustrations of how our pop-culture is today: enamored with tech, followers, and fans.
This is the first image in the series, titled Delivery. When I sketched it out, I knew the perfect woman to be the patient - my friend Indiana Adams. Besides running the hugely-successful site AdoredAustin.com, Indiana is also pregnant! It was a perfect fit, and I am so glad that she was able to do it.
We shot the subjects separate from the background, taking measurements and notes to make sure that everything would line up. I'll be teaching about this process at a masterclass at WPPI next February (more on that soon).
A big thanks to Indiana, Chris, Leann, Carmen, Sherry, Daniel, and Matthew for helping make this image happen! Click the image to see a larger version. More in the series are coming soon.
Happy July! (wow) In between shoots over the last few days, I created a new profile pic for FB/Twitter/The-Next-New-Thing.
