Jim Herman for Bolle Eyewear

Last week I went to West Palm Beach, Port St. Lucie to be exact (50 miles North of West Palm Beach) to photograph Jim Herman for Bolle Eyewear. Shoot was scheduled at PGA Village on Thursday morning.

I can’t thank enough to PGA Village and its all workers for their help.

Endless Summer

It’s slowly getting real. Winter is upon us. Specially in Chicago this means sub zero temperatures until mid-April. Here are some of my favorites from 2016 Chicago Summer…

Chicago Athletic Clubs Revisited

Screen Shot 2016-06-01 at 9.48.33 AM

Last year I worked with Chicago Athletic Clubs and shot some of their locations in Chicago. I shot their fitness studios, trainers in action and even clients during group exercise classes. Images are used on their web page and print ads.

Last week I got an editorial assignment to shoot yoga and spin bike. It was a half day shoot and we got lucky with the weather even though the shoot was inside, I wanted to use sunlight with some strobes for fill.

Into the water…

I’ve been working with Bill Bishop on a series of images since early July. This weekend we were supposed to work on the swim images. Recently we did bike and some track running shots with various athletes that he coaches. I don’t get to work with swimmers a lot, but I had some ideas in my head.

Equipment used: Canon 1 DX, Canon EF 11-24mm and Profoto B1 500 lights.

Some of the images from the early morning shoot…

Red Bull Crashed Ice

I was in St.Paul Minnesota over the weekend for an assignment. Going to Red Bull Crashed Ice, I had no idea what I was getting into. I watched the event countless times before, I knew what it was. I studied the course and athletes, looked at all the photos available from the past. Goal was to capture an action shot of the event without any secondary sponsor logos visible at the same time showing that it is a Red Bull event. For that the best location would be the start chute, where there was a huge Red Bull arch and the start of the event was really cool with St.Paul Cathedral in the background.
