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…

The State of Things

Yes, there is progress! For about two months I had a mad rush of constant work between photo shoots, video editing, and plain ol’ DayJob stuff, so that updating the Kickstarter and accompanying blog has fallen to the wayside. To answer some incoming questions: 1) How is the book schedule going? I want to assure…

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 will be Available in Print and Digital!

Over the past few weeks, I’ve received many of the same questions that I have answered privately and am now answering publicly – Chronotography will be able to be purchased outside of this Kickstarter. When the product is finished, the hardcover will be available in an online store, and the digital version should be available in the same…

Behind the Scenes: Katie Kat Opera and The Artwork of Brett Kelley

This weekend past, I grabbed two models and set us all up inside of Studio 59 in Torrington, CT.  Studio 59 is a performance gallery inside of a historic church, just minutes from downtown Torrington. Additionally, Kris Costa came all the way up from New Jersey to do Katie’s hair and makeup, and assisted with…

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…

Weekend Update: 2 Days, 4 Shoots!

This weekend I will be in Massachusetts and Connecticut doing photo sessions for the Chronotography book! Those who have pledged $10 and above will be getting behind-the-scenes Polaroids, and there should be some behind the scenes video taken as well for the public. 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…

Kickstarter Ended – 123% Funded!

I’m a bit over a day late in posting (darn you DayJob!), but the Kickstarter is officially over with $4,933 as the finalized amount from 80 backers!  That’s phenomenal to me, as I didn’t imagine I’d get even 60 backers! The first shoot for the event will happen this May, and should be every weekend…
