Working with the Audible team is great, and their current campaign is continuing to develop. They’re promoting their exclusive audiobooks, read with the familiar voices of celebrities. The text-overlay Audible design in combination with Zachary Quinto’s photogenically expressive face make this one of my favorites of our recent shoots together (but can I really choose a favorite?).
“The Dispatcher” is a short story written exclusively for Audible by John Scalzi. It’s up to the listener to decide if the all-powerful narrator is god or devil or a mix of the two, and Quinto’s voice is a perfect fit for such a dichotomous character. Plus, he was a pleasure to work with, and I hope to have him on set again someday in the future.
Stay tuned for images of other celebrity narrators, as I’m excited to say the Audible project is ongoing.
I’m very excited to show the video from a project I created for Thompson Miami Hotel. Having such a dynamic and diverse team made this an efficient and productive five-day shoot that included both video and stills, lifestyle and interiors. The result is more like storytelling than advertising, living a “day in the life” in sunny South Beach.

At it again working with Audible on a campaign. This time, I had the honor of shooting Mahershala Ali, an actor you may recognize for playing Remy Danton on House of Cards. He’s also starring in the upcoming civil war drama Free State of Jones, directed by Gary Ross and based on the book by Leonard Hartman. Mahershala is narrating the audiobook. On-set, he was great to work with, and I’m looking forward to seeing him in the new film.
Here’s some behind-the-scenes from set that day:

I’ve been sorting through past artist shoots lately, ones I hadn’t gotten around to including on the Project:Artist website. (If you’re not familiar, Project:Artist is my long-running passion-project of mine, a series of portraits of artists.) New on the website are TM Davy, Rune Olson, Brenden Cass, Ernesto Caivano, Jerald Ieans, In Sook Kim, and Heather Rowe.
To see all the new artists added, check out the website: www.projectartist.info.
I’d previously posted the behind-the-scenes from this shoot, but now I’m happy to be able to share the final images from my week-long shoot on-board the Oasis of the Seas, one of Royal Caribbean’s largest cruise ships.
