PEOPLE ON-LOCATION

I have been asked to photograph people in a wide variety of locations ranging from large office facilities, industrial plants, underground, on bridges, in tiny offices, in an airplane, a giant indoor sports arena, tunnels, and each and every one of these locations presented its own challenges.

Non strobe lighting

Not all lighting you will use needs to be done with strobes. I have a duffel bag full of Lightform panels with shoot through, highly reflective white and metallic surface materials to create a variety of reflected light. The content you are trying to access is only available to members. Sorry.

Clothing Catalog

Here is an excellent example of using the reflector in natural light. I once had the dream client; a manufacturer of outdoor apparel who wanted real people wearing their clothing on real adventures. We took rafting trips, horse pack trips, stayed a nice mountain lodges, and all sorts of fun adventures and my job was to have fun and get great shots of the people wearing their clothing.The content you are trying to access is only available to members.

Shooting the Axmen TV Show on History Channel

In the case of this image taken for a cover, the day was overcast and that was a good thing. I used no light modifiers. No reflectors, no flash, nothing other than ambient light. The reason was these guys were logging and keeping up with them as they worked prevented me from using modifiers effectively.The content you are trying to access is only available to members. Sorry.

Strobe Key

In the case of this photo I used the Norman 400B battery powered strobe just out of camera view for this annual report image. The client and I spent about an hour setting up the composition for the image and then my assistant added the light.The content you are trying to access is only available to members. Sorry.

This photograph was taken for Sunset Magazine and this gentleman owns a guest ranch. The magazine asked that he be photographed in front of the beautifully carved front door.  So I needed to place him in a position to highlight him and the door. The content you are trying to access is only available to members.

Also shot for the tourism project, this wine shop was next on our list. You can see the sun is at high noon making the front of the store very dark or if I exposed for the shadow from the sidewalk would be white hot. The content you are trying to access is only available to members. Sorry.
