Over 100% funded on Kickstarter, and now 100% available! Buy Chronotography as a high-gloss softcover, image-wrap hardcover, dust-jacket hardcover, or instantly as a PDF! Not…

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…

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…

108% Funded, 1 Week Remains!

I want to say thank you so much to everyone who has shared my Kickstarter and those who have made pledges.  With your support, the Kickstarter has reached 108% funding!  Every dollar past 100% goes towards making the book thicker by funding more pages, but keeping the original pre-sale book price the same. If this…

94% Funded, 14 Days Remain!

At this moment, I’m very happy to say that my photo and art book, Chronotography, is 94% funded!  With 2 weeks remaining, I’m very confident it will be fully funded, and I will be able to begin the photography for this book. If you’re unfamiliar with the Steampunk genre, which is the entirety of what this photo…
