Sequence 9 Shows The Beauty All Around Us

London photog, Dave Kai-Piper, is one of my favorite people in the fashion photography industry. He is talented, driven, kind and a blast to work with. I got to meet Dave and his close friend/assistant/videographer, Paul McKelvie in England last year while shooting video for a web series and the 3 of us have been good friends since. Their video “Sequence 9″ is Dave and Paul’s effort to show the beauty in all forms in the world around us by bringing together timelapse photography and what I can only describe as “BTS-Fine-Art-Fashion” videography. Be sure to check out Dave and Paul and enjoy the video! [more]

BTS Of Lana Del Rey’s Blue Velvet Music Video

The first time I heard Lana Del Rey was watching her music video for “Video Games” last year. I thought it was just a tribute video to some old songstress I had never heard of. Little did I know this “gangster Nancy Sinatra” was about to be the next big thing in music. Her videos are always visually stunning, so when I found this behind the scenes video from her music video for her cover of “Blue Velvet,” I had to share it. “Blue Velvet” was recorded and released in conjunction with H&M’s 2012 Autumn Campaign in which Lana Del Rey modeled in. The BTS video lacks dialog but still gives a very good insight into the production process.

Photographing Supercars In Miami With Phase One Medium Format And Intel

There’s this “man rule” that every red-blooded male should drive at least one 12-cylinder vehicle before they die. This is one of those jobs where I got to assert that rule with a golden fist. A gold-plated Lamborghini Aventador and a 1965 Shelby Cobra replica with a BMW Alpina suspension and late model Mustang 5.0 engine… both incredible vehicles created by the team over at Prestige Imports and both sets of keys left in my care alone. One of those jobs where you pinch yourself and ask, “how did I get here again?”
