I photographed a test with my friend and wonderfully talented, aspiring model Jenna Rae at the end of January. We worked on a campaign together last fall and since then I knew that there were more ideas that I wanted to explore, but I couldn't find an excuse to make it happen.
So instead, we picked a Monday afternoon and a spot with these awesome maple floors and west-facing windows. We shot for almost two hours and just picked the wardrobe on the fly. The thing that I like about working with Jenna is that she is always moving, never waiting for instruction or afraid to look a little silly. Occasionally, I had to make her pause, so my camera could clear it's buffer before we continued.
Not bad for a Monday afternoon. More to come.
In photography, the smallest thing can be a great subject. The little, human detail can become a Leitmotiv.
There are a ton of images in the pipeline right now. Each of these shoots deserves a full post, but for now we have a string of Dailies highlights. Here is a photo of my friend Izzy and his ZX6R.
This is Scott McCune. Probably one of my best friends, we grew up together snowboarding at a tiny resort in central Wisconsin. I photographed him in 2010.
I photographed my good friend and Wisconsin snowboard OG Sarah Lynch last week. Sarah and I have worked together at various local resorts and she was one of the original The Teamlab team members. We generally run in the same circles. Sarah rips on both a snowboard and wake board and is generally "one of the guys". Perhaps that sounds a little sexist, but there is a big difference between the type of women who snowboards to be a snowboarder and the type who snowboards because of a true love of the sport. I think that is an important distinction to make, credit where credit is due. I generally omit any words with Dailies posts, but it is not obvious the contest for these images so I broke my own rule here. I photographed Sarah indoors using Norman 500 series lighting gear, Nikon cameras and lenses, and modifiers from Creative Light. I guess the gear spec is not that important, it's the same stuff that I use every day.

I photographed Kyle last fall for his HS Senior portraits. We shot for several hours (Kyle man, you are a rock star) most people won't put up with me for half of that time. We did a ton of locations, but I like the sports stuff the most. Kyle know pretty much what he wanted, and even had some photo reference for me. The cool thing was that we got to do a bunch of editorial type stuff, and not just the standard cheesy smile and polo shirt. Thanks Kyle. Send me a message HERE to inquire about Class of 2014 pricing and available dates.
