It was great to hear from Commercial Integrator again to shoot another cover for their magazine.
For this cover, we photographed Bill McIntosh, Co-Founder and President of Synergy Media Group.
The magazine’s Art Director wanted to show how Synergy Media Group is breaking all the rules by bringing integration and consulting under one roof. Their idea of Bill ripping up the rules was a cool one and Bill was happy to play along.
After we had the cover shots done, we did several shots of Bill with CEO Greg Carpenter and principal David Vargo for the inside story. Thanks to the guys from Synergy Media Group, you were a blast to work with!
We were commissioned by a magazine out of California to photograph Pittsburgh’s Chief Innovation and Performance Officer Debra Lam. This is a newly created position as part of Mayor Bill Peduto’s executive team and puts Pittsburgh on the sustainability map with other forward thinking cities such as San Francisco and Portland.
I have always loved the lobby of Pittsburgh’s City County Building. While I have photographed in the building before, I never had the opportunity to photograph in the lobby. Debra gave us the o.k. to shoot wherever we wanted, so we went for it. Photographing anyone in a busy public space always has its challenges. After making sure my liability insurance was paid up, I scouted and came up with a plan. You have to stay compact and out of the way, making sure no one stumbles over your gear. You also have to keep your subject relaxed as strangers walk by, stop, stare and of course comment on what you’re doing. I’ve become immune to the public audience, but find it important to remember that often times, our subjects may feel uncomfortable. Debra handled it all like a pro and gave us these beautiful and elegant shots.
Thanks to Commercial Integrator for the cover and feature story in their April 2013 issue. The Vector Security executive team were awesome to work with and made the shoot a lot of fun.
We were busy during January and February with editorial assignments for two different law publications. We got to work with some really nice people, and are honored that these publications selected our services for the fourth straight year. Many thanks to Victor Pribanic for bearing with us in freezing temps outdoors for his cover shoot.
These are a few images from a recent magazine assignment. Aside from having a job where you get to be creative and create images, the best part about being a photographer is meeting and working with interesting people.
Another great editorial shoot with Sean Parnell author of Outlaw Platoon published by Harper Collins. We photographed Sean’s author bio for the book jacket last year. We were excited to hear from Sean again to produce photos for his upcoming website.
After reading the book, it is easy to see why Outlaw Platoon spent seven weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers List. As always, Sean was great to work with and we wish him continued success with Outlaw Platoon, his website and future projects.
Author photo for Harper Collins
Today I photographed Sean Parnell, author of a soon to be released book published by Harper Collins. Sean was a pleasure to work with and a great guy all around.
Band Promo Shoot
This was a really fun project. My nephew is in a band called Within a Breath and they needed some promo shots. We photographed the band during their battle of the bands performance. They sounded great! Then we took the guys to a couple of locations for promo shots around my hometown of Corry, PA. I think they had a great time too.
