Trying to keep up with video, photo and post production work over the last few days, figured I would update my 3 fans on the ongoings of AzulOx photo.
First, let me say thanks to Paul Riley (www.plriley.com) for designing me an awesome new logo that I will be soon incorporating into my products. Wish Paul luck as he moves to Atlanta to continue his photo education.
Second, I got to meet Desiree Ficker on Friday (“www.desireeficker.com) at the Rogue Happy Hour/Got Guts 5k Packet Pickup.
Got Guts is a race that raises awareness for Celiac Disease, so all the products and sponsors were gluten-free. The beer was RedBridge, a nice gluten free beer. Desiree was there to give people a taste of some cookies she is creating that are gluten-free. If you have a creative name for her products, send them her way on her website.
I took stills and video at the event and most are posted on the Rogue’s Flickr Page.
Sunday, Me and my lovely bride/assistant went down to a friends house to shoot some Save the Date cards for our friends. The cool part is they wanted some Bollywood-style movie poster recreations. I was more than happy to oblige.
Monday was a long day of editing the Happy Hour and the Movie shots, so it was a welcome relief on Tuesday to go out and take pictures in the rain in downtown Austin. For one, we don’t get much rain down here. Our lakes are 60-80 below normal, and the Sometimes Islands are all the time these days.
Met up with Geoff of Hammondovi Photography and his brother David. Geoff does a lot of work for iStockPhoto so I wanted to get a feel for how he shoots for them. I wanted to grab people off the street and take some candids. So we did both. I assisted him (held the flash) for his shots and he returned the favor on mine.
As we were wrapping up, got a call from a buddy to meet up for lunch, so ran over to Halcyon Coffee Bar where I had a lovely pannini and my favorite shot of the day.
This week I will be doing more things for Rogue and then a maternity shoot early next week.
