This is certainly one of the most downright fun campaigns I’ve worked on. Ami Goodheart and SOTU Productions blew my mind with their “Sculptume” designs and builds. And the entire team from Y&R Zurich gave us all such freedom to make it a work of art (big thanks!). Glad to see the Swiss Art Directors are showing it some love.
About two weeks ago I signed up for a portfolio on behance.net (a very cool sight for all kinds of creative types). I uploaded my portfolio, along with a bunch of different personal projects. A few days back the editors at behance chose to feature my “creature couture” series. Well, since then, it’s gone viral with 1000s of views and lots of blogs writing about it.
The moral: get your butts on behance. If nothing else, it’s a HUGE mother of a community.
Here’s what your profile will look like:
Delish.com recently posted a photo story on food fashion “can you believe these outrageous edible clothes?” Two of my “Hunger Pains” images were included. Some people have gotten quite nutty with food. I particularly like the nike cheeseburger sneaker. Though they did also highlight that overly similar PETA image starring Cloris Leachman, I still find it an enjoyable piece.
Okay, who saw “Whip It?” I did not. But heard a lot of good things about Drew Barrymore’s comedy/drama following a “young misfit who finds a way to deal with her miserable, small town life through roller derby” (quote from rotten tomatoes). The trailer on youtube looked pretty cool, too.
Regardless, I was given the opportunity to head out to Schnecksville, PA for a portrait project with the Lehigh Valley Rollergirls and decided I better not pass it up. The entire team–the pivots, blockers and jammers–all would be there. And they were excited, really excited for the shoot.
The second I walked into the skating center and saw the women sitting around, I knew I had some big personalities on hand. These women are tough. And cocky. And funny. And athletic. Some mothers, some in their 40s. Everyone with a different reason for taking up roller derby. I shot for about 6 hours and it was a blast. I even was invited to an upcoming bout in Newark, NJ (which I most certainly will attend). Below are a few pics and video from the shoot. More will soon be up on my website.
By the way, these “girls” could definitely take me. On or off skates.
… things can happen. Some more in the “on white” series of goofing around.
An image from my recent “officewear” series was chosen as the pic of the week. Thanks everyone at www.oneeyeland.com.
Office workers. In an office. Wearing clothes made out of office supplies. Sound fun? It’s my latest project that is now ready for prime time. Retouching props to Playground in Prague (that’s quite a few “Ps”) who were amazing to work with, virtually/digitally. Two shots below to tease. The rest are on my site.
Pretty cool idea. Ask photographers from all over the world to enter their 10 best shots. Period. No categories. Not subcategories. Don’t charge a penny. Then have an eclectic panel of judges pick the 10 best. I’m grateful to be included. Period.
