I know we’re covered up with snow in northern Ohio but believe the leaves fell we shot one more shoot at a private school on the east side of Cleveland Ohio. Always a pleasure and the ladies did a great job pretending I wasn’t there.
We’ve been busy in Cleveland, Indy and Michigan shooting promotional images and Virtual Tours for several area health care providers. The people that work in these service areas have been great. We are often hired directly but sometimes we have the added bonus of an Advertising agencies insight. Which helps with the flow of the shoot. The industry seems to be growing and there has been a great deal of opportunity to make these locations shine.
One of my favorite subjects to photograph are people. People on the job, lifestyle, in the studio, or at their higher educational institutes. We recently had the opportunity to shoot at a trade school located outside greater Cleveland, Ohio. These kids and adults are working towards learning a trade to improve themselves and net worth.
We just finished shooting a whirlwind fashion line for Julie Ganim clothing. Julie and her crew of co-walker, clients, and family helped to organize an incredible number of outfits and looks at Stata Productions studio. http://www.juliegcollection.com/
We ended up shooting over forty different outfits thought out the studio area, hallway and various seamless backgrounds. The models were great and Julie’s group was well organized and we accomplished a great number of shots in one day.
At the end of the day we shot the whole line over for fabric swatches. The colors and patterns really jumped. Beautiful arrangements of material, buttons, and zippers.
We were given the opportunity to photograph an honored employee of one of Cleveland’s many major corporations. He turned out to be quite photographic and a willing subject.
We had some tight spots but I believe the work speaks for itself.
Back in the studio. This time shooting test equipment of the automotive industry. Another cool product produced in Cleveland. It never seizes to amaze me the number of different products and services that are based in our home town.
It wasn’t easy taming these cords but with some magic wax and some fishing line we ended up with some pretty cool shots.
Last week we had the opportunity to shoot several jobs on location in Strongsville, Berea, Akron and Canton Ohio. Of course the day we planned this five location shoot it decided to snow like crazy. I was shooting for a national fitness equipment provider. They had their state of the art treadmills, weighs systems and various other resistant
products in several area fire departments, colleges, fitness centers, and hospitals.
Did I mention that it was snowing like crazy.
It’s that time of year again and we just finished shooting the DMSA Awards Ceremony.
The Distinguished Marketing & Sales Awards where held at the Renaissance Hotel by Sales and Marketing Executives of Cleveland. Always a great networking event with the award winners and their entourage. This years Business executive of the year was Sandy Cutler of Eaton. “Sandy” and SME event chair Bob Dracon handed out awards to numerous winners including: Adam Chafe or Sherwin-Williams, Mike Malley of Crains Cleveland, John Martin of Colortone staging, and Stuart Weitzman of the Cleveland Clinic.
We start out shooting the cocktail hour and then we have our lights set up in a separate room for the big group shot. After dinner it’s time to hand out those glass
