I made a small book of some of my Polaroids. It’s a mix of old Polaroid and new Impossible Project Instant Film. I love to shoot with my grandfather’s SX-70 Alpha 1 camera. It’s all pre-Instagram filters so you never really know what you are going to get. That’s what I have liked about the magic of Polaroid and also my Holga camera. These objects inspire me.
Here’s the collection:
Thought I would show you some new lifestyle additions (below). The entire portfolio is here.
I’ve updated my website and chose to go HTML 5 to eliminate the Flash issue. Because my old Flash site was not viewable on IPADs and smartphones, we had constructed a separate website that ran on those devices. Well, I have enough things going on besides updating two websites every time we had something new (on top of printing the book for my agent). That was a pain in the a**. Plus the new site is simple and easily showcases my print and video work. I know people don’t have a lot of time to be surfing for photographers/directors, so we made it run faster as well. Even included a nine image thumbnail at the head of each video to allow you to get an idea what the piece is about before you play it.
Here’s an image that was used in a poster by TODA Hamburg for A.T. Kearney. It was from my iphone.
The original is below.

My cover shot of 40 Tastemakers Under 40 for The Wine Enthusiast Magazine is out. I shot on white background in New York and Napa Valley some of the influential personalities in the wine and sprit business. It was a very fun shoot getting people to jump off boxes, throw wine in the air, and just have a good time. The music was influential as well. Each subject got to pick their own Spotify channel. I think that helped. This enabled me to bring a lifestyle feel to the shoot. The magazine ran there first ever triple gatefold. DOP: Megan Baggott CD: Marco Turelli
