Florida Chopadero Shoot

Well things did not go as planned, weather was against me all day. I called off the models, sorry girls, as not to waste their time. I worked with Ron AKA (Florida Chopadero) and the two bikes he brought with him. We shot for a few hours, hoping to dodge the rain. The bikes are true works of art, I was amazed @ the level of detail.

The next shoot I want to do with the bikes will be in the parking garage in down town there can shoot on the roof in good weather of go below to escape the rain.

Florida Chopadero Shoot

Custom Bike by Florida ChopaderoI back in town on Friday and I want to do a photo shoot of some Bastard Built Custom Bicycles.
Any of you scrumptious ladies wanna be shown with some of the sickest bikes in these here parts, lemme know! Could make us all infamous.

The shoot will be downtown Melbourne, may start off around the garage and work our way down town.

Ken Allen Studio

I been working in Brooklyn, New York at Ken Allen Studios. Ken and I have been friends for many years. Ken owns two studio’s, Brooklyn and the new studio in Alexandria Va. He is a fine art printer and works with some world famous artist. One of the projects I have been working on is a digitation of the photo archives of the Museum of New York City. This is a massive project is very interesting. I have seen images from the late 1800’s and to current images. I was really amazed at the quality of the old large format cameras. These cameras could have been shooting a negative that was 8 inch by 10 inch. The resolution and quality of the 35mm film just can’t compare.

video of one of my shoots

This is a video I shot a while ago to show the time and effort it takes to get a few good images. The shoot took 3-4 hours from set up to break down. That did not include post editing time to get a finished image. I shot with Tina and her vintage VW. The car was totaled in accident with an un-insured motorist a few months later.

In the video I sets up lights, move lights, move more lights, get on the ground to take a shot, then get up again to move the lights again. Getting a single shot can be long process. I start with a base look and then work from there. Some times I can get the shot quick, or the idea is not working and requires changes to the approach.
