Who just went on a super fun road trip to some of the best mountain bike places on the East side of the country? We did! Day 1 and 2 we spent up near Chattanooga and biked some amazing places, Raccoon Mountain and Mulberry Gap! A great place to ride and grab some fun iPhone shots of some pretty remote places. The next stop was DuPont and Bervard, NC! This was the perfect place to get the camera out and shoot some professional photography for a couple of the local small businesses. We stopped by Brevard Brewing Company and The Bike Farm for some fun environmental portraits and action shots! Sharing is caring and sometimes its nice to meet some great locals and pass it forward...although we certainly didn't mind the payment of free beer at the brewery... thanks Kyle :) Keep an eye out for some of those images coming your way soon!
Recently we had the pleasure of creating some videos for Stetson University on one of their projects for the new building. "People of Significance" is a series of 20-25 videos based on Stetson graduates and faculty, and their success stories. It will be playing in their Welcome Center on their huge 16 screen display in the lobby! When working with each graduate/faculty we asked them to describe Stetson University in one word. One of the best things about being a professional videographer is the little videos you put together for fun after shooting a big project. Thanks to everyone who took part in this huge project, from this small video you can tell how much people care about Stetson!
Meet Kate Shore, a painter and artist located in Davenport, FL. Kate has a small business painting custom guestbook canvases for weddings and events so everyone can sign their well wishes and you can remember who attended the big day! Kate has a wonderfully supportive family who includes her husband Seth and their two fur kids named Rivers and Luna - so it was only right we included them in the photography.
When we spoke with Kate, she wanted to have a variety of photography she could use for her website, Instagram, branding, ETSY shop, Facebook and several other social media platforms. With these environmental portraits for Kate, we really wanted to drive home who she is and what she's all about. She told us she wanted to convey cozy, sentimental, calm and natural. We were able to work with her environment and her family seamlessly to create these images and had a lot of fun doing it! Luna and Rivers were hilarious the entire time, always lending a helpful paw or two. :-)
As a commercial photographer you get to take part in a lot of amazing events. IronPlanet rented out the entire Planet Hollywood venue for their annual customer appreciation party! Everyone one was enjoying the celebration with photobooths, yummy bites, live music, hand rolled cigars, liquid nitro ice cream, and the wine was flowing all night long. Check out all the fun below!
