Is it Photo Contest Season or what? (Well, in reality, when is it not?)
It was a bit humbling, when this past week, we found out that we are a finalist in One Eyeland’sÂ World’s Top 10 Fashion Photographers for 2018. You probably would not think of me as a fashion photographer, but in reality, that is how I started my professional career back in 19 something or other.
Recently we collaborated with our amazing stylist Stacy Quackenbush on a feature article for Style Loves Adventure entitled “Kings of Music” which highlighted some of the top movers and shakers in the Club / DJ / Music Festival world. We brainstormed with my partner Jeremy Cowin over pizza and beer one night and walked away with a clear vision of the imagery we wanted to produce, inspired by looking back to 70’s / Funk.
The shoot itself was an absolute blast and the artists we featured (Mario Melendez, Jamesen Re, Dede Flemming) were complete sports and totally played along. It was a day of intense fun, collaboration, and in the end some winning imagery. I love working with good people.. that is REALLY what is is all about and when you get to the end of a project and have something you love to show for it, really what more can you ask for!
