PERSONAL WORK – 2017

Followers of my blog know that at the end of each year I pick a series of what I consider to be my best three personal images from a non-assignment single location.

2017 was another amazing year. I experienced a lot of loss, but that just fed my creativity in new ways. These images were shot within 100 feet of my home in October with a Leica Q – an amazing camera.

Happy New Year!

THE STORY BEHIND THE SHOT

This month’s photo was created while assigned to a studio shoot of a Porsche Speedster.

Walking around the car, I noticed these framed mirrors reflecting certain sections of the Porsche. By using a tripod and careful framing, I was able to create the lead to a story I knew would be titled “Fill in the Blanks”.

P.S. This will be the last in this series for a while. It will resume sometime in 2018.

PALOUSE MAGIC

A big thank you to everyone at PCA’s Panorama Magazine for their amazing support. This Back Story photo and text was assigned by Richard Baron and made possible with the generosity of Ron Roland (1952 Porsche America Roadster owner) and Sarah Scott (older barn and younger owner). You folks make my job so much easier!

PURE GEOMETRY

It’s always fun to go out with the camera without an agenda. No ego, no goals, just play!

The challenge is to find a personal balance. Looks easy doesn’t it?

PIGS (Three Different Ones)

It’s 2017 and the first day of fall. It doesn’t seem possible that it’s been forty years since Pink Floyd released Animals. This album is still a great listen. Especially this track. All 17 minutes of it. The original UK vinyl sounds incredible. This is true for all Pink Floyd LPs, including the holy grail for record collectors, the original mono version of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn released 50 years ago.

PETE TURNER

One of the original master color photographers (Ernst Haas and Jay Maisel are two others), Pete Turner passed away today. He was 83. Pete made many of the most iconic jazz album covers of all time. Photo District News voted him as one of the 20 most influential photographers of all time, and in 1981 the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) awarded him its Outstanding Achievement in Photography honor.
