Just finished and on air now is the now TV spot for Bob McCown Toronto based sports caster. We shot the print and motion over a few days with a small crew under the creative direction of Dean Bender. As always it was a stack of fun, Directing people for motion is just a simple step away from the process of story telling in stills.

The 0 to 100 the book is now printed.
Rich Paputit and his team at Flash printing and have done a amazing job. The pages have been printed at a 290 line screen and with a metallic ink for the backgrounds. www.flashreproductions.com
Doug Laxdal of the Gas Company created the Ink and separations. http://gascompany.com
Huge Paper Nice Matt is the paper we are printing on its making the skin tones in all the faces look great. www.hugepaper.com
I'm feeling very spoiled being able to work with the people who make the ink and print the job and to be able to go to the press check opposed to sending the files to China and hoping for the best.

I have just photographed Amy Swartz's stunning new work "Pest". I love insect collections, they are like photographic collections--the thousands of little special things.
There are four boxes now in her set. Amy modifies each delicate insect, mixing heads arms and legs from tiny toys and action figures onto the bodies of the insects and then she arranges into individual or group pieces, some with subtle 'narratives', others plainly beautiful or whimsical.
In the piece show here, at first glance they look like museum boxes then as you get closer you see they are crowds of insects with human heads.
The insects in this post are inspired by a photo of crowds in Tahir Square, Egypt.
If you would like more information about the work Amy can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
