Racing to the Finish

Facebook Memories popped the image on the left of Steam Cat Kimono on my feed. I took that 6 years ago, and decided to pop it next to an image I took of her a month or so ago.  The idea for my book originally popped in my head in 2011, but I didn’t feel…

Chronotography Shoot: Steam Cat Kimono

On August 20 I did an all-day shoot with Steam Cat Kimono out in Long Island.  Despite what her name implies, she did not have a Kimono for this session since I wanted to remain in the Western-idealized version of steampunk.  Instead, she bust out with two very beautiful looks (and this time the wind…

Chronotography Shoot: The Fordhams and Tiffany Knight

Last week I was finally able to schedule one of my New Jersey shoots, and as a matter of happenstance, I had another  person available.  So I packed off my gear, and took the drive off to New Jersey, where we visited a train station/ferry port for a few hours and then traveled as a…

Photographing the Imaginary: Jack Meadowsweet

Last weekend, I and Jack Meadowsweet headed out to have our shoot for the Chronotography book.  Jack, who I know through the Harry Potter group, The Group That Shall Not Be Named, took me around Manhattan and suffered greatly in their black velvet outfit in 87* weather. Through the adventure, the heat, and climbing over…

Chronotography Shoot: Katie Cat Opera & The Artwork of Brett Kelley

This weekend I will be completing two more shoots for the Chronotography book – both in the same location, but it is a pretty large place, so I should be able to utilize a lot of it. Model, opera singer, mother, and aerial performer Katie Kat has found a wonderful location for us in Connecticut…

Behind the Scenes: Leah Siren

I mentioned in last week’s post that I had shot 2 days straight for the book, so today I will talk a little about the previous shoot. It started out, as all shoots should, with some conferring over the next few hours with Moana playing in the background.  2017 has been strange with the weather, and…

Behind the Scenes: Railroad Museum of New England

This weekend I had shoots with 4 groups of folks for the Chronotography book. Sunday was the larger of the two days, with 7 models.  Thankfully the Railroad Museum of New England (Website | Facebook | Twitter) allowed us access to the property for most of the day. We spent the day in, on, and around the trains for some great…

Chronotography Shoot: Leah Siren

Probably by the time this posts (yay post scheduling!), I will be out with Leah Siren working on her section of the book! The two of us have worked together many times before, with Leah wearing the styles of Redfield Design (as seen below). Today we’ll be in Worcester in a beautiful white Victorian-Inspired outfit…

In this lineup, we have: – Designer & Model – Redfield Design – Model…

Photographing the Imaginary: Newt Scamander & More

If you’ve seen or read Fantastic Beasts, you know that Newt Scamander is a pleasantly awkward, inquisitive character who is always up for an adventure to rescue “his” animals or those he deems it’s his responsibility to protect.  When working with this image, I wanted to show that Newt was doing something possibly dangerous while remaining…

Photographing the Imaginary: Vladimir Snape & Evercrumbly & Witch

If you’re familiar with my photography, then you well know that I love the post processing part.  And at MISTI-Con, I was well able to stretch my imagination by utilizing a seamless black background, some gels, and great models. This week on my stream Photographing the Imaginary, I was able to show off how to get from…

First Shoot: Redfield Design 

This coming weekend, I will be doing the first shoot for the Chronotography book, with designer Redfield Design and Infernal Machine Manufactories. You’ve seen me take more pictures of the designs than the designer, so I’m really glad to have a session that will to light her and well as her talent! [Please note: Please only take…
