A few weeks ago I photographed Nate Jenkins for Runner's World and met his girlfriend Melissa Donais. She's also a distance runner sponsored by Adidas. This weekend we got together and went to this amazing location that I had found while mountain biking with fellow photographer Christian Kozowyk.
When we rolled into this spot I yelled " I call it. I'm going to shoot a runner here." Christian fired back with "we'll see who get's here first." Well I got there first and when I e.mailed him some shot's he wrote back "Awesome, I can't wait to shoot that place!" Let's see what he shoots.

I photographed David Allen Sibley today for the Boston Globe Magazine. He does amazing illustrated books about birds and his newest one is about trees. Nice guy and cool artwork.
Check out his work here.
Thanks David, Henry, and Josue.
Shot with Canon 5dM2, 50mm lens, Profoto head on the Hensel Porty pack to light him.

Yesterday when I got back to the office there was a cardboard tube with a DDC orange label on it. It was automatic stoke. I opened it up and started checking out all of the little logos and illustrations, so cool. Now it's on it's way to being framed and put up someplace in the house.
Check out Aaron Draplin's blog, it's full of inspiring design, tales of a Gary, and good old Americaness. It's a daily stop for me. I've never met this guy but he seems like a good stand up character and does a good job with making stuff look cool. If he has any posters left go here and buy one. It won't disappoint. He also threw in some cool stickers, my favorite is an illustration of his dad. A must see also on the poster.
Thanks for the stoke Aaron! Maybe someday I can put together a photo version of this kind of poster. You'll be first on the mailing list.

Here's a few iPhone shots that Henry took of Saturday's shoot for Runner's World Magazine.
We had a great location with perfect weather and runner Nate Jenkins was super cool. We were able to get the portrait and try some cool creative stuff too. Thanks Nate, Melissa, and Henry for a mellow and successful shoot.
