Communal living for Time Magazine

New clients are always very exciting, when a new client happens to be Time Magazine it's call for a party.

I was asked to photograph a slightly challenging story in Syracuse, New York for Time with little notice. The goal was to illustrate a communal living space for millennials and how it could be a great option for all involved.

The space was inside of a downtown nondescript building featuring communal workspace but also two floors of studio style apartments joined together with large community kitchens and living areas. An interesting concept that offers affordable options for those wanting the downtown lifestyle and also to share in community experiences.

However, small apartments and people at home are not always the most exciting subjects for photographs. I attempted to show the environment, the exterior and most notably the culture of sharing spaces.

I once again lit these photographs with my Profoto B1 lights and shot on the Canon 1DX2 bodies with an assortment of Canon L Prime lenses.

Watkins Glen for Runner's World

I had the great opportunity to shoot part of a feature article for Runner's World and some of the great running destinations in the United States. I was hired to photograph a few popular running areas in Watkins Glen, New York. Watkins Glen is the hub of New York's Finger Lakes region and a very popular tourist destination for the wineries and race track but also it's outdoor activities including running.

I worked with my friend and fellow RIT alumnus Mike Bradley, he modeled for the shoot, and we hit a few of the spots the editors prescribed but also I worked to find another angle that may illustrate what they were talking about more clearly.  As it would turn out, the extra view I found ended up being the full page photo they ran. Let me know what you think, I attached some outtakes as well.
