Mark • Headshot

Mark came to me by way of his wife, Julie, whom I did an extensive session with for her latest album “Rising – a Modern Cantata for the World to Come” (which I’ll be blogging about soon).  Mark needed some new head shots that would be used for his companies website.

Julie came along for the session, and before they left, I made sure we photographed the two of them together.

Drew liked working with me so much from a previous head shot session, that when he lost a few pounds he called me up and we got him back into the studio.

I always enjoy listening to his stories and catching me up on his happenings, and I’m looking forward to serving him again soon 🙂

LOGAN

LOGAN

Six years ago my buddy Matt Smigiel got together and did a Wolverine-inspired photography shoot.  I’m a big comic-book fan and I had a ton of fun with Matt that day, and I knew someday I’d like to get around to doing another one.

Well, after a lot of procrastinating and seeing the “Noir” version of the latest Wolverine movie “Logan” I dusted off the claws and got Matt to come down to Nashua for another day of *snikt!”-ing claws and saying “bub” a lot.

More images after the cut:

Sh*t Got Real JC: Part 2

Wander • Shit Got Real JC

Last week a post about my ThreeA figure “Sh*t Got Real JC” was published.  He rules.  Over the weekend I brought him over to Clough State Park, which I have done with my other ThreeA figures in the past, and spent a lovely afternoon making images with him.

Intimidation • Shit Got Real JC

A word of advice to other ThreeA collectors out there that like to take photographs of their figures:  BE CAREFUL WITH THE WRIST PEGS!  While trying to remove that awesomesauce Mad Max jacket I have for him, I pulled on the sleeve too hard and his wrist peg snapped.  This is the second time I’ve had a wrist peg snap – the first time was back at the start of 2017 when changing hands for my Blind Cowboy and his peg snapped.  Replacements can be found on eBay, but they are stupid expensive.  So be extra careful when doing anything with the hands or wrists.  I’ve since cut that long leather sleeve off the jacket, so now it’s more of a badass leather vest.  Still looks excellent.

You can see a few more example images I made over on my Flickr page.
