I've been photographing tattoo artists, vintage muscle car restoration specialist, climbers, mountain bikers, kayaker, surfer, blacksmith, boxer, & Fire dancer.

Please enjoy these images from the final portfolio. Thanks and please like, comment & share if you have any requests for careers you want to see in the future. Thanks and have a great day!

The household robot Part 1

For our last studio project we were given the assignment of shooting a scene including ourselves. The catch was then that we needed to create a robot to help us out with whatever task we were doing in the background scene.

With the return of The beautiful Weather I was finally able to carve out some time to participate in one of my favorite activities apart from shooting, that of mountain biking on the south shore. Taking this as inspiration I chose to create an image depicting an invention that every at home bike mechanic could use. My invention is the wrench procurement robot, good for handing the tool you need when you just need that extra hand. 

I shot the background plate with my bike and myself in the environment with the idea of shooting the pieces of the robot in the studio. The framework of the robot is shown in an early configuration below. 

The robot begins to take shape.

Now that all of the pieces are shot, the next step is to composite all of the pieces and then build the robot and place it into the scene to create a finished shot.  I will update as the robot build progresses and showcase the finished product. Stay tuned for more updates and have a great day!

Biomechanics and the future.

The assignment was to shoot and composite an editorial concept using the skills and the studio lights we have developed. I choose to do a what-if advertisement for a future apple product placement based on the rise of wearable technologies. I created a rough proof of concept image using an existing image and gave it the blacked out look from the earlier days of the iPod. This rough edit can be found below. 

In order to successfully complete this concept I needed to picture the completed shot in my head and work backwards. Once I had the idea I then went about gathering any prop pieces for use in Photoshop. I went to a thrift store and grabbed a VCR and a DVD burner. After some careful application of a screwdriver and a hammer I was able to free a couple of the key components. A couple of transistors and circuit boards later and I had the pieces I needed for illustrating the concept.

 

 

In the studio I matched lighting and set up my models to serve as the foundation of the image. Using a grid and soft box to create fill and hair lighting and I had all of the pieces that I needed. I was able to pull together the pieces together into the image I had in mind. Below is an earlier edit of the final composition.

Then the final part was the compositing of the pieces into a coherent and well executed final product. With the male model I was able to line up of the components with an actual plate in his shoulder. Found below is the final image with the standard font used with iPod ads of the early 2000s.  I decided against using the blacked out idea from earlier in order to show a more surreal take on typical shots featuring athletes. Overall I'm happy with the overall idea and execution and may pursue this as a series going forward. Please let me know what you think by commenting or sharing this blog.
