AFC's World Of Chocolate Campaign

During a meeting with Rhett Lindsey, Jessica Syburg (both from the Aids Foundation of Chicago) and graphic designer Dan Paterno, we started brain storming ideas for ads to promote AFC’s fund raising event World of Chocolate. The gold satin caught their attention and we were on our way to look at my living room for ideas.

Headshots: Personal Trainer Michael Elder

I recently worked with personal trainer Michael Elder to create new images for his online marketing. This was our second shoot and I really enjoyed trying out some new lighting setups to really make his pictures pop!

Here come the brides

Recently, B Creative Bridal, part of B Creative Talent, asked me to shoot advertising photos for the launch of their website. Because I was tasked with shooting a web commercial, lifestyle stills and beauty headshots of three different couples and one wedding party on location in the span of ten hours, I asked my friend Jeff Haynes to come and lend a hand. He shot the headshots, while I worked on the behind-the-scenes video and the lifestyle photos. Thank god he was there, because there was no way one person could shoot everything.
