Trafford – CD Photo Shoot
We love shooting portraits, so when Chris Trafford asked us if we wanted to shoot the imagery for his new album we were totally on board. We’ve worked with Chris in the past on a few aerial projects but this was the first time he was in front of the camera. This guys is chalk full of ideas and concepts and had a pretty clear vision for exactly the type of cover he wanted to create. The concept for the cover was based around the lyrics of the song (and album title) “Rebel For Hire” which can be heard here. Pick up a copy at Bull Moose or on iTunes, its good stuff!!
The REFLECT Project took silver in both the portrait and fine art categories. You can see the gallery here.
It’s always great to see our work in the NY Times, we even got the lead image.
Check out the behind the scenes video of the shoot we recently did for Smithsonian Magazine. You can see the full image over at our website as well as the article at Smithsonian Magazine.
Make sure to check back as we will be posting more BTS videos on the blog.
Our commission from Smithsonian Magazine with Dr. Sara Seager is now out in the latest issue! Stay tuned for an upcoming behind the scenes video.
The REFLECT project has made it’s way on to the MSNBC Lockup page, seems to be quite a fitting place for it. Check it out here.
Fine Homebuilding recently approached us to photograph Boston architect Steven Baczek for an upcoming story on passive house design. Of course we were interested as it gave us the opportunity to showcase the architect and not just the architecture. We knew ahead of time what the art direction was so we shot with a tilt shift lens to help shift the focus to the head and shoulders and give the image some depth, we then post produced it in B/W to give contrast between the various colors that would encircle the subject.
