Finally had some time process this time-lapse from Gozo. Really love using the program LRTimelapse, which lets you shoot RAW images, process/edit them, then produce video. Doing this from sunset and into the dark-of-night normally would be extremely tricky but with LRTimelapse its pretty simple. Great program.
In the winter of 2014 I was given the chance to photograph Franklin High School just a few months before it was scheduled to be closed, then remodeled. The gym is one space which is to be demolished not restored and this week the demolition got underway. Although it's now gone, the old Franklin gymnasium had thousands of students run across its hardwood floors, thousands of pep-rallies with student screams and cheers, and countless more memories. Here are a few images of a place I'll never forget.
Wow, crazy start to the summer. Thrilled to have opened my new teaching studio: Boston Photography Workshops which opened with a bang, including: photo-demos for chefs, an NYC media workshop on new digital trends, and... a good old fashion Digital 101 class. From there I headed to Indianapolis for VRX Studios to work with The Alexander Hotel, which is just an incredible hotel with even better people working there. After Indy (and a few beers) I departed for Dandong China for a 10 day shoot (again for VRX) and shot a sparkling new Hilton Garden Inn. Dandong China is located in the far north of China and borders North Korea, very cool experience. From long nights, lots of noodles, illegal roof top photo shoots, to celebratory explosions, China was as always.. an experience. Summers just getting started, below is a sampling of the whirlwind May & June.
Ok, no matter how I phrase this I'm going to sound pretentious, snobbish or lame, whatever.. it has to be said: I have traveled to a lot of places and seen some incredible sights. That being said, Gozo may be one of the most serene and beautiful places I've ever seen (or will ever see). Three weeks ago I had never heard of Malta (or Gozo for that matter) and might have...possssssibly.. guessed it was near the Mediterranean .. maybe. Thanks to VRX Studios and their project with the Kempinski San Lawrenz on Gozo, I was brought over to photograph a beautiful hotel filled with fun and kind people. There I worked with a kick-ass stylist, Roma, and made many great new friends from the hotel and island. Below are some photos from our adventures; the Azur window (shown above) is only 3/4 of a mile from the hotel. I shot it four times and could shoot it 300 more. I have two time-lapse shoots from it which I hope to share soon. The last photos are from the most incredible sunset I've ever seen, and hand to god, those colors are not enhanced. If anything they are toned down to not seem fake. Thank you to my new friends for the warmth and hospitality, you made a cool work trip into an unforgettable experience.
