Aqua Zumba

Just wrapped a quick second shoot for Zumba ZLife Magazine shooting their Aqua Zumba fitness in the pool.    If you haven’t tried it, you should, it’s a heck of a workout.    It was a fun shoot.   We started out above water with this shot (below) and when the rain moved in on us we weather proofed our strobes and went under water and did some fun shots below the surface.

 

Update:    While we were shooting this assignment the client had a video guy doing a little behind the scenes shoot.   Check it out here.

 

Splash! – A Very Wet Look Behind the Scenes.

Here is a very wet look behind the scenes of a recent book shoot.

“Ok Mike,   Just walk out on that rock and look out over the water.  Try to look natural when the waves come up and splash.”        SPLASH!!!!     “That was perfect!    Mike?   Umm… Mike?”     ;-p

Seriously though,   Mike was not harmed in these photos,   While it may look like he was wiped out,   he actually braved the waves relatively unscathed.

We will  be posting the final images soon!  Stay tuned…

New Swimming Work

Recently spent a couple days shooting some new swimming stuff for the book and for stock.   Shot with model Raphael Hildebrand who we had worked with previously on the VisitFlorida campaign.   He has been a swimmer most of his life which was a plus as we did not have to educate him on proper technique and form… just give him a little direction and he nailed it.

LeBron James – Home Court

So what does LeBron do when he is not on the basketball court or creating a media frenzy? He sells children’s furniture! We recently teamed up with Mullen to produce a series of ads for Home Court by LeBron James. Here are the first two ads from the LeBron James Home Court shoot we did.

They also shot a great commercial to go along with the campaign. Check it out here on Brad Stephens’ website (Brad is the incredibly talented Art Director who hired us) http://www.iambrad.com/HC_1.html

King James!

Here are two of my Favorites from a recent shoot with LeBron James.    He was extremely cool to work with.   Open to suggestions,  took direction well and gave us plenty of time to get it done right.   Thanks LeBron!   Also special thanks to my crew who put in long hours while we waited for LeBron’s plane to land.

LeBron James!


Just booked a gig shooting a national ad campaign with Lebron James with Mullen.  Doing 7 shots with him doing various things. Can’t say much more at this point due to nondisclosure issues. Production starts next week, shooting the week of the 14th. Will post images as soon as I can!

Final New Balance Ads
