i was in flagstaff, AZ shooting some of those purina ads you see a few entries ago when one of the local crew told me there was something cool happening in the sky and that i should shoot it. he mentioned some a circle of light and talked about arcs, the shape of ice crystals in the atmosphere, angles and light, and a whole bunch of other confusing things that i was nodding my head while listening to but was completely lost. i threw a 16-35mm lens on my camera at 16mm and quickly shot a panorama of the sky. it kind of got lost in the mix for a while, but i came across the photos, stitched them together, and emailed it to the flagstaff local who clued me in. he asked me to send it to a website called Atmospheric Optics, and they asked if they could use it in a “picture of the day.”
if you spend a few minutes cruising through the Atmospheric Optics website there are some incredible pictures of skyward phenomenon. makes me want to learn more about arcs, the shape of ice crystals in the atmosphere, and angles of light.

we shot victor manuelle in puerto rico and the dude is a total champ. i got nothin but good things to say about victor. he was the talent but he was just so chill and laid back that he almost seemed like part of the crew – a part of the crew who just so happened to be a salsa singing legend.

one time a bee landed on my glasses and crawled around until he was smack in-between the middle of my lens and my eyeball. he was busy looking for pollen and i was busy trying not to flench because he was tickling my eyelashes. after finding my spectacles pollen-free he flew out of my life and that was the last i’ve known of my friend. here’s to you, little buddy.
i snapped this friendly fella recently and i liked it. so now you get to see it.
here’s an update on some ads i shot for purina. this is probably my favorite of the series yet.
i snuck down to my hometown beach, Topsail (pronounced Tops’l) Beach, where i hung with family for a spell. there was an awesome lightning storm passing through one night and i grabbed my camera to snap a couple frames.
i came back inside and sat for a while and as the storm moved on through i set up a little time lapse. it wasn’t fully thought through. i should have done it from the very beginning, and there are a couple glitches where i had to make some adjustments – but ease up on me, dude – it was late and i was on vacation. gosh.

i love milkshakes. when i’m home i never really get them enough so when i travel for jobs all that pent-up milkshake tension gets to me and i go berserk. when i’m on the road i always get one a day. sometimes two. occasionally i’ll get one for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. those days are my favorite. this job was 2 weeks worth of milkshakes in PA, IA, and AZ – that’s an awful lot of milkshakey goodness.
