I found this to be an interesting little story about some lost glass plate negatives, thought to belong to Ansel Adams:
I must be obsessed with photography, because I even dream about it. Not every single night, but yes… I regularly have dreams about shoots that I just finished or that I’m about to do. I guess I eat, sleep and breathe photography.
I just watched a documentary on photographer Sally Mann, called What Remains. You should, too.
But, that’s not the only place you’ll see my images from the frantic night of Gaga pics. You can also track down a copy of the Fort Worth Star Telegram’s Saturday edition, and you’ll see even more in a Quick blog post here:
Besides all that, I think Quick
will be running more Gaga content in next Thursday’s issue. That may sound like enough Gaga right there, but wait… there’s more! Gosh, I sound like one of those infomercials. I also shot Lady Gaga assignments for the DMN’s guide fashion section and blog, as well as Dallas’ best fashion monthly, FD Luxe
With all the pre-party pics, concert mayhem and post party images, I should have a million Gaga-related photos floating around DFW over the next week. It was a wild night, a long night, a very strange night and an extremely exhausting night of photo fun. Even with all the drama I had to deal with (you don’t want to know), I’m still glad I got it all done!
The Sixties are alive! I had to do a shoot about a group that lives the mod lifestyle – 1960’s music, european scooters, martini’s, go-go boots, etc… They were a lot of fun!
I just spent a few hours of my Saturday calling members of the ASMP Dallas chapter to remind them about our upcoming events. Evening when I’m not working, I’m still working. I’m going to take a break before I start my evening shoots. I want to spend some time playing with the boys and wife. Life as a photographer really is 24/7 if you want to be successful…
Geez… this week started out a little slow, but today has more than made up for it! I will be having a Lady Gaga day that will be slam-packed with shoots. In total, I will have four different shoots to do at the Lady Gaga concert tonight: two pre-concert events, shooting her performing during the show, then shooting her post-show after party. How can I can complain about turning one night into four separate paychecks?!? I’m going to be one busy little shooter tonight! Thanks, Gaga!!!
When I’m not shooting, this is what I usually have to deal with…
It can be a handful, but at least it makes the office days a little more fun!
I shot this cover story last year, but I don’t think I ever shared any out takes from it. It was such a crazy night of shooting, that I thought it would make for a fun blog post. Dale Jones performs under the name New Science Projects around North Texas. It is part old school blues and part wild performance art… quite an interesting experience! He came over to the studio for this cover shoot, one I will probably never forget!
