So my good friend Danielle told me about this place in White, GA called Old Car City USA. It’s a huge property owned by a man named Dean Lewis and is full of old, junk cars dating back 50-60 years. Naturally, we thought this to be a fun way to spend a day and a good photo opportunity. I made a fun video showing the journey we took with a couple of our friends.
Here are some of the shots you’ll see in the video.
All in all, a really great adventure and fun way to spend the day. We are planning to go back very soon and I’m looking forward to exploring more of the property. Seriously, you probably wont cover all of it on your first visit. Go check it out! You can find the owner’s website with hours of operation here.
A good friend of mine, David Holloway, works as one of the lead photographers in Turner‘s imaging department. He told me to come by the studio sometime and he would give me a tour of the work place, and Cartoon Network Studios as well! I wasn’t able to document everything I saw, but for the things I did record I put them in a little montage to share with you.
Just another awesome day in the life of a photographer. It feels awesome to know people like this!
I’ve been on a bit of a photo fever these past few weeks. I have been shooting so much and I can’t get enough of it. Its exciting to feel this again and I’m loving it. Here are some of my favorite shots I’ve been working on.
To add to the fun shooting adventures I’ve had so far, I just put together a video testing out my new GoPro Hero 2 while I was shooting a wedding reception. The video is shot mostly in a first person perspective starring Kevin Groover and myself.
I have been doing some exploring in my free time lately. Kind of getting back to the roots of what I used to do in my early years of college. Finding old, abandoned homes and exploring the interior. Some of the houses, inside and out, have this essence. Like there is a story behind everything and only the house is left standing to tell it. So, I’m starting a new series called “Home”. The series will consist of images portraying whatever history the structures have lived through, while maybe giving us small insight to tell a story of what happened. Here is an example below of one of the first images in the series.
Well now that things have settled down, I can start blogging again on a regular basis! A few things have changed. I now have my associate’s degree in Commercial Photography (hanging proudly in the office) and I am now working at Portrait Innovations in Duluth, GA. That is going well so far, Christmas apparently is expected to be a nightmare though.
Also, I have updated my online portfolio, provided by DeviantArt. I felt the basic images from my printed portfolio weren’t enough, so I’ve added some new pieces of work. You can check it all out by clicking the image below.
Well, that is all the news to add for now. More stuff to come later this week!
I’ve been advertising myself on craigslist.org a little bit, just to appeal to anyone needing pictures taken. A couple of weeks ago I received a call from a Mrs. Elliot. She needed graduation pictures of her son Terris. So we met up, discussed the shooting ideas and here is what turned out.
It was a small job, but a delight to work on. Congrats to Terris on his graduation this weekend!
