Ode to the photo Gods

with 3 comments

I took a short roadtrip out to Snowville Creamery with Sir Zachary Nelson for a portrait of Victoria Taylor, who owns the creamery with her husband.

After wondering around for about five minutes and going to the wrong building, we found the entrance and met Victoria. We quickly found a huge window at the end of a hallway that looked over the fields and decided it was money to shoot the portrait there. As we were setting up the lights, we talked about how it would be sweet if there were cows in the field (there were not) and joked about photoshopping them into the photos. As we finished setting up the flashes, the cows that were outside the building we went to first came walking down the path right outside the window.

I ran down the short hallway, told Victoria that there were cows and we wanted take the photo before they walked too far way. She kindly moved quickly back to the window and we got it done in about 10 minutes. Zach and I then prayed to the Photogods on the way home. Story by Jessie Cadle here.

Road Trip and a Photo

leave a comment »

A week from this past Friday, Post writer Ashley Luthern and I took a road trip to Stockport, Ohio to interview and photograph Wulf Reinicke. Wulf does some awesome woodwork at his old-school workshop next to his house. After we got lost and made a half hour to 45 min drive there into a two hour drive, we finally rolled into the right driveway to be greeted by four excited dogs and Wulf. We spent some time there, learned how to make different things from wood, the different projects that Wulf has done in and around Athens and elsewhere, and then took some pictures (Ashley held a light which was awesome, all writers should learn this skill).

Here are the pictures that turned out awesome, plus a diptych of my favorites and the two that ran in this Article by Ashley Luthern.

Master of Brews and some insight

leave a comment »

Things have been up and down for me lately, and what I have come to realize is that I really love photography. The past few days have been kinda rough for different reasons, and I was feeling kinda down. This morning I got up to go take pictures of Athens’ local brewmaster Brad Clark at Jackie O’s, which was awesome and a ton of fun. I spent about two hours doing that, returned the lighting equipment from the checkout room and headed home. While walking back I started to realize how happy I was, that even if only one picture turned out I would be okay with it because I really love what I do.

Enough about feelings, here are some pichurs to look at and enjoy. Cheers
