On These Airwaves

This was a fun shoot of some of my buds. A local band that needed some PR pics. The music studio where we shot was small and I had in mind a directional light but soft. Space simply prohibited umbrella or softbox so just hung a large white sheet on the wall and bounced a couple hand units. It gave a nice broad and directional light that gave the guys a little shape and is much more appealing than straight flash. Eric Long on the right just released the second album. (I also did the cover art) from On these Airwaves (OTA) Check out some great music and Like it on facebook!

While doing some aerial golf work, we spooked some geese. A nice unique angle on these quite large birds. What struck me beside the water pattern was how they were already set up in their customary V pattern before even taking flight. A fast shutter and long 300mm again stops the action of not only the birds but the vibrating chopper.

Stop and smell the daisies

 I was contemplating how very brief we’re here. (Gasping for air will do that).  You know the old adages “its never to late”,.....”never put off till tomorrow what you can do today”...and most notably “live today as if it were your last”. Well I really don’t think they meant you should  go skydive or race indy cars or aspire to be Ms. America, I think it simply means to appreciate every single moment you have and to love and treat with respect the very next person you come face to face with, because bottom line is.... nothing you can do will make more of a difference than that.   So ... Don’t forget to smell the uhh..... Daisies, like these just below the treeline of the Alaska Range.
