Spent a little time in NYC scouting a few locations. Staying in Spanish Harlem and walking the streets inspires countless street-scapes, urban images, gospel, gritty images and the Riverside greenbelt on the Hudson for run and lifestyle images. Will be heading back shortly for a few shoots, left feeling inspired.
Had the opportunity to take a few new shots for the fine art "freight" project here in Vancouver. We rented a boat, got my father to drive, had my 3.5 yr old nephew Jackson as first mate and we jumped in the water with a housing. The goal was to gain a unique perspective on something that is seen daily here in Vancouver and break it down into simple forms, lines and patterns to expose an industrial beauty that gets lost in these lumbering giants. We are currently working on a gallery show for the images and have developed an interesting way to display the images. Will keep posting updates the closer we are to getting the body of work complete.
Derek and Mira Hunter have an ongoing photography and fine art installation project called time machine. Developing a camera rig that has 65 film cameras in a circle it has solenoids to trigger each shutter at the same time. The resulting images are subjects and objects frozen as the viewer is led around the circle showing a full 360 degree perspective of a moment frozen in time. We helped them set up a new shoot in a rain forest on the Sunshine Coast. Truly a spectacular visual project. Check out more at:www.derekhunter.net/tm.html www.mirahunter.com/video.html
AKA the "boneyard" - Roadtrip from Vegas to Tucson to shoot the airplane graveyard at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Worth the trip to see the thousands of planes parked for storage or wrecking.
A few days in Maui to shoot primarily underwater and fine art images, a great experience.
JJP/'s new installation in the Shangri-la Toronto is now on display. Commissioned by the design office of OMB - Office of McFarlane Biggar Architects + Designers - the seasonal tree images were printed in Toronto with a plexi trans-mount to compliment the interior space. The triptych can be seen in Bosk.
