I don’t often shoot square, but when I worked with Harvard Horizons scholar Fenna Krienen, I wanted to mix things up and limit my composition as we wandered around Harvard Yard.
One focus in her studies is connectomes, which are comprehensive maps of the brain which looks like a wiring diagram. She is looking for synchronous networks in the human brain and cerebellum. Fascinating work and a wonderful human.
Designer, DJ and all around positive fellow @thebudelman. This is generally how I picture Mat, with a smile on his face and exuding a feel good vibe. I photographed Mat during @somervillecity Porchfest as we were wandering around to see the wonderful bands this city has to offer. Looking forward to this year’s Porchfest! #somerville#porchfest
Each fireplace was carefully captured to find the perfect flame with no glare. After much tinkering, lighting and blocking out reflections, I layered all the photos together to make this final shot. It was one of the more trickier architecture photo retouching jobs I’ve done. In the end, this was a composite from 40 different images. Can you tell?
Behind the scenes on a portrait shoot for the @independentfilmfestivalboston with @conductor_productions. @jodivautrin was the talented art director for this. My model Samantha Webb is getting some makeup done before we turn the hot lights back on. I transformed a tiny back office into my own personal studio for the day.
Throwback photo I shot on assignment for @british_airways in 2009. My dear friends @dangrossmusic, @adam.tavares and I roamed around the French countryside in search of newness.
There’s something different about the nature in France. The painterly landscapes and crisp, sweet air lended itself to a novelty I haven’t felt before.
Candid moment with collaborator, ping-pong master and style guru @jasonostevens. We were wandering around and as we plunged into the shadows of the ruby red brick buildings, I received the faintest hint of inspiration.
Instead of getting my camera low, I decided to place Jason high. The photograph happened in this order: composition, model placement, light placement (off camera ➡️), something funny, shutter click. To help engage with my subjects, I work with an infrared shutter release to separate myself from the camera.
