New York City

I received word today that my photo shoot for the new CREATIVE LIGHT product line is up and running. The shoot was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed working with our talent, Kim and Lisa.
The final selected imagery will be used for the brochure for CL and the video will live on their blog. This shoot followed an even larger music video shoot that I shoot using a stills camera and 16,000 pics.
It’s in the editing room now and I look forward to showcasing it once it’s spliced together. In the meantime, I hope you like the video below. Cheers, Richard.

It was a great day when I photographed Joshua Henry of hit Broadway musical The Heights for Miami Magazine in Times Square on a beautiful Saturday morning in November. We used a Canon 1Ds Mark II and 2 ProFoto 7B packs cranked to nearly full power and a beauty dish for a soft fill to illuminate ?. The sun was slowly sneaking out behind the skyscrapers to the south and we quickly worked to capture the pic before the exposure I was hunting was lost.

This was the 3rd situation we shot that morning and he brought an amazing amount of energy to each situation. I’ll be sure to publish the final images once the magazines gets their turn first.



Cameras, Acrobats, and Contortionists OH MY!

A couple of weeks ago fellow photographer and friend Vincent LaForet, a Canon Explorer of Light, mentioned he wanted to shoot another demo video with the highly anticipated CANON 5D Mark II in New York City after the incredible success of REVERIE, his first video shoot.  
The Catch… We wanted to be the first to ever fly the still camera on a professional STEADICAM rig.  This was my first major production as a steadicam operator since attending the SOA certification course and to be able to shoot with such incredible performers in Manhattan was a total thrill.  Flips off monuments, BBoys busting moves on the subway, and contortionists in Times Square are just some of the highlights.  
The video will be released this week and I will be posting the video link here as soon as it’s edited.  
 

Ah! The sweet taste of “the wrap” on the final day of shooting on the feature film “Watching TV with the Red Chinese,” directed by Shimon Dotan and shot in New York City.  I was the 2nd AC on this shoot as well as the Unit Photographer.  We shot on the Panavised F900 with a great set of Panavision zoom lenses.  The shoot was a great learning experience and an eye opening departure from the world of still photography.  My friends Mike Rossetti (DP), Eric Kim (1st AC) and Michael Fuchs (Steadicam Operator) did a great job on the set.
