The weekend was full of excitement as we shot two projects to help two Chicago area AIDS Charities raise money through athletic events.
My sports lifestyle ads for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, designed by the talented graphic designer Dan Paterno can now be found all over Chicago, including this ‘L’ station!
Australian master hair stylist Vic Picolotto of Tracey Hughes Education, asked me to work with him to create these colorful portraits. Hair, make-up, styling and the background all came together to create these themed images.
Before the repatriation of my friend Vic Picolotto to his native Australia, to work for hairdressing giant Tracey Hughes Education, we decided to get in a few headshot shoots while we still could!
I decided to use a variety of hard light sources to sculpt the light for these portraits. However most of the hair is light from above and behind with a softbox.
For the last three days I have been covering Alex Rodriguez and the Yankkees White Sox games. Covering every move while he was at bat or about to be at bat led to some odd moments. Like last night, when A-Rod was on deck and Ichiro Suzuki was at bat. Normally I would just be shooting Suzuki, but instead I had to keep an eye on Rodriquez hoping he would pass by a guy with a “Free A-Rod” shirt, in between each of the Japanese stars swings.
