Severe Thunderstorm Blackett’s Ridge August 13th 2008
A severe thunderstorm moves over Thimble Peak and Blackett’s Ridge Trail above the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area. The most severe lightning storm we have seen in 10 years in Tucson Arizona. This image was just featured in an article in the Arizona Daily Star newspaper. Fine art photographic prints of this image are available in the Storms Lightning II section on the Fine Art page.
This shot was created for a client who makes drill an attachment that drills through glass. To create this photo we started with one inch thick glass plate and shot a real photo of the tool actually in action. We spent some time working on setting up dramatic lighting that would feature the product and its specialty. The glass was really expensive so we wanted to have it all figured out before we began. This is the main image on the front page of the products web site. The drill is turning the water is flowing and we only had to drill one hole to get it right!
This is a shot of downtown Tucson photographer Jeff Smith for a story in Zocalo Magazine.
This was an advertisement for MOCA Tucson in Art Forum Magazine. Olivier who's not really big on having his photo taken brought these painters in from out of town and they painted the car in the back of his studio. The finished car was in a show at MOCA titled "The Artist as the Collector". This advertisement, designed by David Huffman ran a full page. See the Published section for other publications.
Mathematics Professor Bill McCallum at the University of Arizona. The hardest thing about shooting this photo was getting the blackboard behind him really clean, there was a lot of chalk residue to deal with and he had some fun placing some nice clean graphic back on the board I'm not sure what it all means but it was a fun portrait to take. See Portraits some other people I've photographed.
Erick Boomer is a Nationally known Kayaker who was heading down to Mexico from Canada. I was hired by McCleans magazine in Canada to intercept him on the freeway so that I could shoot a photo of him before the sun set. It was one of those lost communication things where his cell phone was dying and I was supposed to spot his truck on the freeway headed in the opposite direction about 80 miles west of here. It all worked out and I was able to shoot the images in a field out off of Interstate 8 by Casa Grande with 15 minutes of sunlight. Just enough for the shot.
Local Tucson Artist Gavin Hugh Troy has the tinniest window that lets in the most beautiful light into his studio. I try to shoot a photo of him each time I visit his studio. Want to purchase one of Gavin's paintings? http://www.citizensart.com/Gavin-Hugh-Troy
Susan Wink is the Artist who created this stop for the Modern Street Car in Front of Time Market. She hired me to shoot a series of images of the stop and I was actually able to time out a shot with the street car zooming through the image. This was the first time i had seen the street car in action.

Double Page Ad in Sports Illustrated for the Chicago White Sox. I photographed all the players for this White Sox ad campaign for Energy BBDO Chicago. We shot players against a plain backdrop and they held up blank white signs. I was only able to shoot each player for about three minutes so we had to everything ready to go and work really quickly. They composited this whole image from the individual my player photographs. These were used in many different types of ads from the sides of buses to the ad space above your head in the elevated train.
I photographed the start of the New York City Marathon from atop the Verrazano Narrows Bridge when I lived in New York City in 1985. This photograph at the start of the Marathon shows 30,000 runners who completely cover the bridge, the longest span of any bridge in America. If you have ever run in this Marathon you know how dramatic the start of the race can be there are just so many runners on the bridge, some want to win some only want to cross the finish line before they collapse. This dramatic view from atop the Staten Island Tower is 500 feet above the runners and 700 feet above the water. There is a safety railing around the top of the tower although to shoot this image I climbed over the railing and laid flat on the edge of the tower so that I could get an un obstructed view of the runners below. With luck on my side this was an unusually clear morning for the NYC Marathon start it is usually foggy, rainy or hazy. This image is available for editorial and advertising publication. I just scanned and printed my best work from the 1980s Archive for a recent show at the Wee Gallery and now you can order these fine art photographic prints straight from my web site. Look in the Fine Art section click on 1980’s Archive Color.
