Mailing It In!

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

We were headed to a rural address somewhere near Newelton, Louisiana. Our client contact told us to head south off of I-20 for a few miles and turn left at the big mail box. Coming from a large urban area, you grow skeptical of vague directions without a street address attached to it, but what the heck, the client should know what he’s talking about, so off we went. We were expecting a mail box about the size of a small suitcase, when straining our eyes in the pre-dawn gloom we came upon this monstrosity. We always seem to find some fun on our location jobs!

Special thanks to Aaron Phillips, our new friend and assistant extraordinaire from Jackson, Mississippi. Also, Nate Smith, Audra Zaba, Ashley Vest, Jen Robinson… our Chicago crew.


Derrick Rose for Giordano’s Pizza!

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

We just finished shooting Derrick Rose for Giordano’s Pizza, what a terrific shoot! Derrick was so cooperative and easy to work with he made my job a breeze. Thanks to Sandy Rosencrans, Audra Zaba, Leslie Pace, Marcus Geeter and Jen Robinson for a great team effort, and special thanks to Megan, Ron, Katie and Denny from Shafer Condon Carter for bringing me in on this killer project. The pictures of Derrick will appear on billboards all over town, along with beautiful photographs of pizza shot by Laurie Proffit.

I can’t wait to see them!
