I know – people always sterotype photographers into shooting beautiful girls for a living…. but sometimes we actually do. It was one very long day shooting 15 months for a local gun shop in Burton, Ohio… Ok if you know that much -then let’s say it’s The Girls of the Gunrunner Calendar – 2009/2010.
We’ve been shooting some fun high end fashion dresses and customers of Audrey’s Sweet Threads on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio. After shooting foxcroft consulting and Shaffer Design choose and design the images to go into the Plaindealer and Currents Newspapers.
The store has been very fortunate to have some great clients to come in and wear – display their
evening, prom, and business attire for the camera.
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.
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
Starting out the week attending the Marie Piscopo workshop (www.mpiscopo.com) put on by Tri-C and www.asmp-onc our local ASMP professional photography group. Interesting and enlightening. Jumped in to shooting some senior portraits both
on location and in the studio. Always fun.
Studio shots are even more challenging in that I have to come up with interesting angles and niches to pull out the best photos.
I received a copy of the new menu Rick Shaffer (www.shafferdesign.com ) and I had worked on in New York city. The piece turned out fantastic.
Towards the middle of the week we did some good old fashion Industrial Photography with sparks and all. Cleveland is still
loaded with plenty of manufacturing businesses that need quality photography.
This time of year I’m off as often as possible to follow another shooting love. Bird hunting.
I went back to New York State for
some pheasant, grouse and duck hunting for a long four day hunt.
We were very successfull starting out with 75 degree days
and turning into some of the worst rain storms I’ve seen this early in the season.
The last day the winds changed around and we had our limit of ducks in record time. Great Hunt.
The whole time I was out playing I had Jim Baron and Amy Weiser covering the Battle of the Corporate Bands at a place
I’ve shot endless photos from days gone pass. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They did an excellent job of covering
