Last fall I shot some promo photos for Lehigh Valley based DJ, Mister Dynamite.  Here are two great examples of them in use for events he’s been DJing at, and one of my favorite from the shoot itself.  Find him on Facebook and fan out!

Summer at Linfield Industrial Park [color]

My second shoot now with Summer, who always brings a ton of energy, great attitude and is a pure joy to work with.  This time around we shot at the previously scouted Linfield Industrial Park on what could only be described as a perfect summer day in the high 70′s, a slight breeze and picture perfect sky.  The change in her hair color and added curls from our last shoot, combined with the vibrant colors and industrial background made this match absolutely work, and we ended in some wonderful fields towards sunset.  During post production I was torn between color and black and white photos, in this case both hold their weight equally well so I’ve decided to make this post all color and will follow up with a black and white set.

Laura

Two weeks ago I sent a text to Neil, inquiring about going to a flea market early the next morning.  He said sure, but wanted to bring his niece along who just got in from Ireland, to show her some of the fun stuff we have here in Pennsylvania.  The more the merrier I told him, and at 6:45 the next morning Neil was introducing me to Laura.  Upon first meet, Laura is soft spoken, with a charming and thick Irish accent.  I knew instantly I needed to take her photo.

Two and a half years ago I met Christine, we’ve remained friends since then sharing many of the same interests.  One thing anyone who knows her is that everything is does is over the top.  If she’s in a colorful mood, it’s a lot of color.  If she’s happy, everyone will see her smiling and laughing, if she’s determined to get something, do something or go somewhere, best of luck to anything that blocks her way.

We’ve spoken about shooting since meeting but it never really happened.  Both our schedules synced earlier this month and we did some studio work.  Because all I had in the studio was a grey backdrop, I knew I’d be having some fun in post processing, Christine is not a grey backdrop kind of woman.  With her approval and my color-blind eyes, I went to town bring all kinds of funky colors into the photos, the end result of which I’m very proud of our collaboration.  Hopefully soon we can do a location shoot.

Jordan

Jordan came up last month for a shoot, without much idea of what we wanted to do we chatted for a good while before starting to shoot.  I really enjoy working with people who are new to posing, and models like Jordan are the reason why.  She’s fun, giggles a lot, didn’t mind twirling around in circles until nearly falling over only to get back up and try it again.  Hopefully I’ll get a chance to work with here again soon.
