Fall Ferndale Fashion photography

A photographer friend of mine Trista has a Vintage Collector and Costume Wardrobe Stylist friend Alvita Lozano. Alvita asked Trista to model for her.  We met in Ferndale where Rachal Parker did her hair and makeup.  Alvita had a a couple locations she liked in Ferndale. We started at an alley just off Woodward and the other location was on Livernois near 8 Mile.

Trista is a designer and fine photographer http://tristadymond.com

Powering the internet

These shots are from a local facility that supports internet servers.  Powering all that hardware takes a massive amount of electricity, batteries and cooling.

AMA Ice Racing

On my way home from a horse shoot (event where I photographed horses), I drove by the White Lake Inn.  I know on Sundays in the winter a bunch of locals will drag race sleds on the ice.  As I was approaching, I noticed a large amount of cars and people.  It turns out there was an AMA sanctioned Ice Racing event.  My daughter and I went out to the ice and this is what I saw.dsc_0585

Great book for portrait photography

I just finished Annie Leibovitz’s latest book At Work.  I have always been a fan of Annie’s work.  This book is a wonderful journey through some of her most memorable images, what the situation was and how she thought about the images.  Great read, great images.

Annie Leibovitz describes how her pictures were made, starting with Richard Nixon’s resignation, a story she covered with Hunter S. Thompson, and ending with Barack Obama’s campaign. In between are a Rolling Stones Tour, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, The Blues Brothers, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Keith Haring, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Patti Smith, George W. Bush, William S. Burroughs, Kate Moss and Queen Elizabeth. The most celebrated photographer of our time discusses portraiture, reportage, fashion photography, lighting, and digital cameras.
