News

Recent brand work includes the Tim Scull Ceramic Studio, Monogram Realty, and Full Combat supplement packaging. My latest photography effort is a resistance-training instructional series for an international social-media web site. The work involves directing three models (who are doing some 300+ different exercises), and requires still photography and video, as well as some post production chores. This is a company-private assignment, so it may be impossible to post, but I'll try to get some representative photography images up soon.
