Final Boxing

Here are a couple final flatware boxes with my images on them, two different styles. I really like when clients use a huge image and cover the whole outside of the box, like shown here. Also, it is so nice to see the final result. I don't always get the chance to see everything come together (photography and design) to make the final product. Usually after I turn over the images they go through different stages of design and then into the world! Keep an eye out for them on shelves near you!

iPhone Mania

So yet today is the release of another iPhone. I figured I would show my support by posting some iPhone accessories I recently shot for Decor Craft Inc. Some fun cords you can wear and carry your phone with. Stylus pens too!

An ode to film

So much has happened since digital photography emerged. Taking pictures has become more accessible. With cell phone cameras improving everyone thinks they are a photographer, and what was considered a unique winning photo has declined. And... recently Kodak announced it will be selling off its film and paper photo business. This is sad news. Sad that not enough people have an interest in "old school" photography ways to keep it alive.

I started my professional career shooting film and polaroids, then moving on to digital. While digital is so much more convenient, there was just something about film that it will never possess. Maybe it was knowing that my whole shoot rested in those 4x5 sheets of film that I would rush to the lab. Always anxiously anticipating the processing results. Sitting at the light table reviewing them, and being so happy with the results was a great feeling. One that digital will never give me. There was a certain art and patience to shooting film that digital has over taken. Everyone assumes since it was shot digitally it is instantly available to them. Hurry up and process those raw files we need them now. I hear that all to often. I feel lucky to have been part of the film era. Those who skipped past it missed out on learning why photography is so amazing. While my digital system may give me better image quality than film (which don't get me wrong I love) it will never give me that unique film and paper processing smell from the darkroom.

Cupcake Madness

What is better than cupcakes and cute kids? There is a new cupcake business in town, Sugar Mama. I recently did a shoot for their upcoming website. These are some of my favorites.
