Here is a quick time lapse Richard shot of us loading the truck after shooting a day in the pool with the Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers. This was shot outside the pool at the Mass Maritime Academy.

Of course we had Richard that day, but as Chris was busy making furniture that day, we tried out a new assistant called Bear Cieri.  He worked out great, and would recommend him to any other commercial photographer.   Bear is also a great news photographer.  You can check out his work on his site. Thanks Bear for going above and beyond that day in the pool!

He's gonna kill me for the photo... but there's Bear

He's gonna kill me for the photo... but there's Bear working a couple days later for us...

We are continuing to work on our project with the United States Coast Guard shooting portraits the other day…

Stay tuned for some of the selects from that shoot!


Last week we began to prepare for a shoot we are doing on Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers.

We will be shooting the swimmers over several days and covering them in all aspects of their work. In order for us to do the aerial component and work in the helicopters over the ocean, the Coast Guard is requiring us to complete some special training… and any time the military wants to give us some training, we are more than happy to oblige!

Our day (as usual) began well before sunup. Richard and I met our friend Petty Officer Luke Pinneo from the Coast Guard public affairs office and headed south to Air Station Cape Cod located on the Mass Military Reservation at old Otis Air Force Base.  I have mentioned Luke before. Luke and I met when I taught down at DINFOS. Luke is talented photographer in his own right, and he has been great to work with on this project. Read the rest of this entry »
