Daybreak/Location Lighting

This whole shoot was for a couple of different school projects that I have been working on. Thanks to Matt, Ryker, Joey, and Dillon for their "modeling" skills.

And because Ryker ollied this bump so awesomely, here is a natty light ollie for good measure.

SF 2008 Revisited (again)

I don't think I ever posted this image(s). Either way, here it is for your viewing pleasure.

These are just a small sampling of Jay Maizel's many collections. I shot these in March 2007.

This is a view of a "collection" of cars in Chelsea, NYC.

Two photos from the same spot.

I took both of these from the same spot. The tripod legs didn't move. I just rotated 45 degrees to the left. That sounds kind of lazy now that I think about it.

Timpanogos Harley Davidson

If you have driven through Utah County in the past few months, it would have been hard to miss the new Harley Davidson dealership in Lindon. The building has been constructed from remnants of Geneva Steel, along with other vintage signs, bikes, and other memorabilia inside. There is even a restaurant inside. I highly recommend everyone go check it out. Take the family, the kids will love it. The employees are great and really friendly. Don't be afraid of the long hair and tattoos.
I have been shooting a project at the dealership the last couple weeks with a team of classmates. Here are a few of my images.

Vintage bikes and vintage signs.This is Rick, the General Manager.
This is Brownie. He is the "chrome specialist," meaning he does custom bikes for the dealership and for customers. (This bike is a stock 1200 Nightster).
This is Ric, from the parts department.

Dyllan Call...model?

Believe it or not, I was shooting these for school. Dyllan was my model. The non-skating photos will be posted soon.
Feeble stallWallie...I tried Sam. Hasselfish would have worked better.

Wallie = yes, he literally rode up and over the wall. You can see his wheel marks on the bricks.

Hunting Season

Thanks for assisting today Sam.

Urban Landscapes and Barriers

These first two are from another series of images that I am calling "Barriers." I began working on this series earlier this year, but I was shooting them all on a 4x5 view camera with Polaroid Type 59 and doing emulsion lifts. The subject matter is similar and related to the urban landscapes, however it deals with different types of "barriers" that we find in our day to day life. They represent not just the physical boundaries in the world, but the obstacles we face on a personal level.
(pretty deep, I know).

In continuation of the urban landscapes:
"The Green House Series"

This one doesn't quite fit into either category.

The Spiral Jetty and the Great Salt Lake

I was supposed to be photographing in Moab today, but the trip was canceled because of a bad weather forecast... today it was 76 degrees in Moab with a low of 50 degrees.
Instead, a handful of classmates and I made the trek out to the Spiral Jetty at the north end of the Great Salt Lake. It is way out there. It was extremely cold and windy...I'm guessing low 40s to high 30s, but with the windchill who knows. I had fun anyway, and got some decent photos out of it.
Go here if you want to know more about it:
