Annual Burlesque Party

Every year I look forward to planning and hosting a party at our studio where I can invite clients, crew and industry folks along with friends and family to see a selection of local burlesque and live music.  I want to give a shout out to Vaudezilla for producing the show, Judson Claiborne for being our musical guest and FIG for providing delicious appetizers that evening.  Also, big thanks to some of my favorite photo assistants Ashton Hansen and Andrew Lawrence for helping out and taking these great pictures from the event.  Now its time to start getting inspired for next year…

BP stadium shoot

There is nothing better than having a project sync up completely with an image I created for my portfolio.  This spring, Wunderman approached me to shoot a series of images for a BP campaign which was almost exactly like this image I had shot for my portfolio a couple of summers ago:

Here is one of the final pieces we shot in April for the client:

Big thanks to the crew and BP’s own employees as the talent!
