Photo Shoot: Rockwell Knuckles

Posted: May 14th, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Photography |

I did this shoot last week with local MC Rockwell Knuckles. He is my favorite STL MC and one of my favorite MC’s in general. He is full of character in real life and on stage. These shots are from a 3 part series shot by local photogs that will contribute to his new promo campaign. I was happy to lend my lens to the movement. Check him out at http://www.myspace.com/rockwellknuckles.

Photo Shoot: The Cool Kids @ Wash U – 4.24.09

Posted: May 13th, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Photography |

The company I work for, Ch’rewd, manages The Cool Kids. They came to St. Louis and rocked the annual WILD festival at Wash U. They put on a great show! Shot with the Nikon D90 and 17-55 2.8 lens. Some fill flash here and there.

I shot The Cool Kids for a month straight last November / December during the 2K9 Bounce Tour. It was my first real experience shooting anything with a pro-cam, especially live shows. I think it turned out decent. You can see that collection here.

Photo Shoot: The Butterfly House St. Louis

Posted: April 21st, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Photography |

I went to the St. Louis Butterfly House with my girlfriend Sarah and our friends Matt and Beth on Saturday, April 18th, 2009. I’ve heard about the place and have driven past it at least 10 times. I decided to take my camera with and damn……….i’m so glad I did!

The Butterfly House is an 8,000 square foot Conservatory Garden sheathed in 646 pieces of glass, each measuring 4′ X 6′ and weighing approximately 200 pounds. The center vault, soaring 36′ high at its apex, is one of five vaults designed to minimize visual (and flight) obstruction.

The temp is kept around 88 degrees and the humidity feels like a natural rain forest. It was a challenge keeping my lens fog free.

I hope you like what I shot. This was my first real chance to capture nature with the D90.

Enjoy!
