Dear Santa and Small Miracles….

As the year winds down I find it nice to be able to slow down think about other things.   Not things about work,  but the more important things like family and the holidays.    The simple things that make me grin.    Like helping my 5 year old son Jordan write his letter to Santa and seeing my little (soon to be born) son on the ultrasound the other day.

It’s these simple things that remind me of how lucky I am and to appreciate every minute of it.      I hope that you all can do the same.     Merry Christmas!


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…

Private Defective… by the other Peter Barrett.

Someone I don’t know found this interesting video a while back and sent me an email inquiring about it, thinking that this was me.     I let her know that while the artist here and I share the same name,  I assure you this is not me.   😉

It is however, quite clever… albeit a bit strange and a maybe a bit disturbing.    My 5 year old son Jordan thinks it is hilarious and so do I, so I thought I would post it here for your entertainment.   (Click the Face below to see video, turn up your sound.  It gets good after a while so keep watching)

Lenovo- For those who Do.

Here are the ads we did recently with Saatchi & Saatchi for Lenovo.   It was a really great shoot complete with a guy flying in a water propelled jet pack.    Who doesn’t love jet packs!   We shot 2 days alongside the TV production and 1 day specifically for stills. Special thanks to Hillary & Billy for hiring us and also to my great crew who worked long hours alongside the TV crew for 2 days in the heat!
