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.  april-cover-story-1

I had done some testing before this shoot.  Coming up with some very grainy shots…. which you may have seen

on my facebook page…. I think it was a little to much and the final shots the artist used worked out well.

Cleveland Professional Photographer has been busy shooting sporting good products.

We’ve been shooting sporting goods products in the studio and in the field – sometimes very cold – lay on the ground to get the angle freezing cold.  Of course if anyone knows me – waterfowl products shots are right up my alley…. or swamp

Whether we’re shooting decoys or attire or soft goods – it always gets interesting shooting over water.

It’s also nice to have the lighting control and temperature control to shoot in the studio – especially in the middle of winter.
