Seems everyone I've shot for lately has asked me not to post the imagery until it's published. So, I have nothing new to share. But, that did get me thinking about the old days, and that in turn led me to this image. I think I shot it in the early, or mid '80's. It was for a clothing store in Scottsdale, AZ, and LaJolla, CA. I think it ran in both cities as well as nationwide in W magazine. Back then, my favorite lighting was created by putting two 4x6 sofboxes behind a 20' square scrim I had made. By placing the scrim about 8 or 10 feet from my model and having the softboxes about 10 feet behind the scrim I got this great, very soft light that resembled window light on a cloudy day. Since back then my studio was in Phoenix, AZ, cloudy days weren't something we could depend on at all. Hence the creation of this lighting technique. That lighting, my trusty old Blad with it's 150mm lens, and I created hundreds of fashon images that ran all over the world. Fun times. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to toss the image up here for old times sake.

Had some free time so I got together with my firend, Heather, to "make some art". She's an amazing musician, you should check out her work by clicking here. I was going for a very moody sort of feel, so I kept the light to a minimum.

Created a bit of imagery for Tasting Panel Magazine. They're doing an article on Jack Daniels and needed this bartender photographed because of a paticular drink he makes.

Had a good session with an actor buddy of mine, Robert. He's going for a part in a western and we needed to create some imagery that fit the bill.

Got to photograph another restaurant a couple days ago. I love shooting this stuff! Plus, they had an amazing musician, Kristy Dee, playing. So, not only did I get to create some fun imagery, we were serenaded while we worked. Dosen't get much better than that, eh?
