"New" Black and White Portfolio

Just wanted to let everyone know I have updated my website this morning and added a new Black and White gallery to my Portfolio section. There are now separate web galleries for my color and black and white portraits.

Aurora Photos Action:Reaction Project

It has been quite a while since I have posted a blog here. As you might guess I have been so busy with work that I haven't had much time to blog. Between road trips, assignments and other big projects there hasn't been a whole lot of free time.

Recently I shot a few portraits as part of Aurora Photos Action:Reaction project which celebrates 15 years of being in business as a stock agency. The Action:Reaction project has been in progress since June 2008 and the basic concept is that every 48 hours a new image is uploaded to the site that somehow relates to the previous image. It is a very interesting progression of images by an incredible group of pro photographers.

Each photographer submits three images and then an editor chooses the one that goes live. Part of the project is that it brings photo editors and photographers together, for instance my set of images was edited by Sadie Quarrier of National Geographic Magazine. Some of the other guest editors include Rob Haggart of APhotoFolio.com, Sacha Lecca of Rolling Stone and Miki Johnson of American Photo Magazine.

Sadie chose the color image (as in the image above). Here are the other two images I submitted:

As you can tell these images are a bit off the beaten track for an adventure photographer but I am experimenting a lot these days with portraiture and especially black and white portraiture.
