Several weeks ago I did a photo shoot for The Wall Street Journal. I was assigned to photograph Jeffrey Katzenberg's (ceo DreamWorks) vacation home in Deer Valley. Jeffrey was a very nice man and a pleasure to shoot. I'll admit to being a little intimidated, after all, he's been photographed by the best of the best including my all time idol Annie Liebovitz.

Several weeks ago I worked on a project for The Grand America. That hotel is just amazing!! I photographed a man named Ali from Iran who incidentally speaks 5 languages. He is the host/greeter for the restaurant there; not to mention the consummate gentleman. He's the type that makes you want to be a better, kinder person.

I attend the Addy awards last night. I only had one campaign entered (Cocoa Metro) and one of the photos from the campaign one a Silver Addy. I did learn last night that the entire campaign made it into Luerzer's Archive Magazine... That's a really big honor.

We went a little more formal this year for our family portrait. It seems like society as a whole is staying away from formal portraiture and is leaning more toward shots taken in dark alleyways and against ghetto fabulous brick walls. We opted for no smiles to show we don't take life too seriously... oh the irony.

I'm always trying something new. Recently I've started doing a lot more time lapse photography. My wife and I are currently having a new home build, 2 miles away from our current home. I thought it would be interesting to show, from the perspective of my truck, how to get to the new lot from our current home. I strapped one of my cameras to the top of my truck and let it do its thing.

I had the opportunity to shoot the promos for the 2011 Addy awards, which was awesome. Last week I was asked to take portraits of the creative directors who came to Utah from various advertising agencies from around the country who were tasked with judging the work submitted to the Addy's. I really love how the portraits turned out. I tried a lighting style I've been refining for quite a while now. Here's a shot I took of my assistant Nate Biddle from that same shoot.
