JeMario Alexander contacted me about taking some head shots and creating a video calling card to promote himself as a male model from Charlotte. He can be found at http://www.modelmayhem.com/2870691, http://twitter.com/_7onetwo and http://instagram.com/7onetwo.

Invited by Biagi DenBeste Racing to the History 300 Nationwide Race, I took photos from the garage and pits. Jeb Burton drove the #98 car to the finish placing 15th.

While in Charleston, SC we walked the Arthur Ravenel Junior Bridge. This bridge was completed in 2005 and is one of the longest cable-stayed bridges in the western world. The bridge provides 186 feet of clearance for ships below and has a pedestrian/bike lane the entire length. This is a gorgeous bridge that is very people friendly. I wished I could have gotten a shot of the bridge at night to see the lights.

Kristin took this picture of us exploring the greenways in Charlotte. I wish every city had this genius way of connecting the community!

Here is an excellent article written by David Hobby creator of the popular blog Strobist. He covers why it is important to create time to think freely and also how to approach getting the career path you want by manufacturing your own opportunities rather than waiting for the right project to come along.

I had the studio setup so I decided I would try and mimic a full size studio car shot using a toy car.

 

My desk is covered in colorful creative tools. Quality tools always pay for themselves as long as you put them to use.

Here is a must read article for creatives. It explains why you should in most cases not work for free and how to beware of the "intern" position. It also goes over when to say yes to pro bono work and some ideas on how to respond to inquiries for free labor.

Testing a lens out and decided this machine has a story to tell.
