The Omega Speedmaster Professional

Watches are quickly becoming my favorite things to shoot. The tiny mechanical intracacies are fascinating. What is even more exciting is the history behind the watches. Take this 1960's Omega Speedmaster. It has survived more than 50 years on the wrist, taking a daily beating. The detail of these worn time pieces is almost more beautiful than a new one. When you lay your hands on it you can feel the history of this particular piece. Where has it been? Who wore it? What has it seen? I love watches.

 

This Omega Speedmaster was part of the vintage collection at Analog Shift. Get other Speedmasters like it there.

Watches Everywhere!

Lately I have been shooting a lot of watches with the New York City based Red Bar Crew. They have weekly meet ups to discuss collecting, what's new in the watch world, and to show off their favorite pieces. People show up with everything from plastic Swatches to the latest platinum Audemars Piguet. There are hard edges, soft lines, and supple leathers. Intricate machinery, true craftsmanship, and history! I truly enjoy shooting such remarkable machines.

The Hudson Valley

I was recently working on a shoot a few hours North of NYC in the Hudson Valley. The studio we were working at was located inside a 200 year old hickory wood barn. During my down time I was able to capture some beautiful Spring light. I used the Hasselblad SWC903 and Phase One P65+. I have come to love this compact combination even with it's tricky focus and quirks. I love that about cameras, mastering the idosyncrises of a mechanical marvel. A tool designed to excel, it just needs me to use it in harmony with my subject.

NAHBS 2014 Charlotte, NC

It's been a few years since I've gone to a NAHBS  (North American Hand Made Bike Show) but I decided on a whim to head down to Charlotte, North Carolina this year and check it out. I brought with me a camera bag bursting at the seems with gear that I had never used before in a convention setting. I used a Hasselblad 500cm with a Phase One digital back. I had the idea to try and get macro shots of the beautiful hand built bicycles that are labored over and then shown off at NAHBS. I used an 80mm lens with a 56mm extension tube mostly. I needed the faster 2.8 Aperture of the 80 versus the 120mm macro lens. For lighting I used a small Flashmate LED light. I kept it on a camera strap around my neck so I could put the light exactly where I needed it while I triggered the camera while it was delicately balanced on a monopod. If I were to do one thing different it would be to bring a full tripod do get longer exposure capabilities. 

 

Fellow bike nerd John Watson over at his newly launched site ---->   The Radavist  <----- has been kind enough to put up a more comprehensive gallery of my shots. Click on the name of his sight and check it out, thanks John!

JCCC4

Hello Sea Monkeys (and Snorks)! I have finished the main edit of my over 7 thousand images I shot as the official photographer for JoCo Cruise Crazy 4! As I did last year I have created a catagory at the top right hand corner of my site. Pay what you want and I'll send you any amount of the hi-res images I have taken! This is how I support myself for working on the cruise. I really appreciate the support of this wonderful Sea Monkey community! If you haven't been on the JCCC cruises yet and are considering going check out the fun you could be having next year!
