We were commissioned to shoot some controversal photography for a current magazine in the Cleveland – Akron area last month. The article was just published and here are a few samples of my work.
We had a lot of fun and got some great shots of some exciting people at a recent United Way campaign shoot. We set up a studio on location and just kept the people coming thru.
We – Dave Szalay http://www.szalaydesign.com/ and I just finished working up a great holiday card for a client in Cleveland Ohio.
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.
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
I’ve been busy the last few weekends offering my services to friends and client with my event photography. Family outing, celebrations, weddings are always fun…. especially if you have a camera floating around or actually hire a professional photographer.
I had the opportunity to shoot with a local production company recently.
They were shooting video B roll for a commercial. The idea was to use
available talent and show people enjoying the outdoor patio of a near by
restaurant. We had to start shooting after closing time so it was a late
night. Lot of fun and some great shots. If it looks like everyone was enjoying
themselves it’s because they were.
The shots that I did will be used for print or website collateral. Much higher resolution then anything you could pull from the video.
Just got back from a trip to Grand Junction Colorado. It was a mere 106 degrees outside but a dry heat. We shot for a major Cleveland Corporation that had store
opening that required my professional photography services. They didn’t want to leave
it up to an unknown shooter in Colorado….so Stata productions was asked to fly out and cover the event. Nice to be thought of.
Flew out the nite before on a commercial airline and was back the following day after the shoot. This time I was able to travel lite with a camera bag and carry on suitcase.
