Maris Family Thanksgiving 2011 Time Lapsed @ 24fps

November 29th, 2011

The gathering for a Thanksgiving meal is one of the few times a year that multiple generations of a family will all meet in one place.  To catch up, laugh, drink, and most importantly – eat.  Generally a lot.  This year we headed up to my parents home in Arkansas, as did my brother and his children (though, just like my own, they won’t be ‘children’ for much longer) and ate like kings on a classic Thanksgiving spread.  I’ve been experimenting with time lapse photography as of late and the opportunity was perfect.  So enjoy the entirety of the Maris Family Thanksgiving meal (including desert) in under two minutes!

NASCAR / COKE 2011 Assignment

November 15th, 2011

Shake N’ Bake, round two!

Here are eight ridiculous, verging on strange, candid shots of me with some of the NASCAR drivers taken during a recent Coke assignment.  We were capturing the drivers for standees, in store life size cardboard cutouts, using the 60 megapixel Phase One camera. If you could not tell by the images, these guys are very fun, I look forward to working with them again!  Thanks to everyone at Momentum and IMG for a great shoot!  Click To Experience!

Adron: Psychedelic Tropicália Folk Chanteuse Extraordinaire

November 14th, 2011

It’s a mouthful, but I honestly don’t know how else to describe this young lady!  Taking cues from the sun drenched sounds of the Brazilian pop form known as Tropicália, 70′s psychedelic folk and the recent revival of all such sounds (Akron/Family, Juana Molina, Arto Lindsay, Tom Zé, Os Mutantes, Fleet Foxes, Coco Rosie), Adron puts it all into a seamless blender and hits puree.  Her songs float along with strong acoustic melodies and those infectious tropical rhythms that just make you want to do nothing but relax. It’s all in service to a beautiful voice that effortlessly captures the feel of fading sunlight and awakening forests deep in the summer.  Wonderful.  Visit her Facebook HERE.

A few weeks back, Adron and her band came in with a head full of concepts for her new album Organismo‘s imagery and I was happy to help her see it through!  We’ll also be embarking on a music video soon, so look for that!  If you’re in town, come by the record release party this Friday @ Smith’s Olde Bar! Retouched by the velvet hand of Brad Kaye! Click to Experience!
