small things

In between assignments you think about your next move, the next project.  And then, you just wait, look & keep shooting.

scenes from a festival

Bill Monroe's Bean Blossom Festival is the longest running bluegrass event in the world and the last time I was here (1979), Lester Flatt was still pickin' & singin'.  The motor homes are bigger now, as are the people, but the music is the same - whether it's coming from the stage or one of the small groups gathered in the woods.  If you've never experienced bluegrass under the open sky, it's something to put on your list.

the lost children of Look3

In every shoot there are good photos that never make the final edit.  There may be better choices within the take or the ones that 'fall to the cutting room floor' just don't go with the narrative.  Here are a few from Look3...

the end

With much fanfare the 2012 edition of Look3 has come to a close. Leaving C-ville is always tough - but with it, the promise of next year.

last day

Gilden & Schwartz made for a long morning - thankfully Alex Webb ended the Masters Talks with a good narrative and wonderful images.  Later I did my best (maybe) 'Webbian' imitation of Stanley Greene, while Barry & Michael played yakuza and enforcer.  We ended the festival at Crozet Pizza (well lit & composed, as always).

long day

Ernesto Bazan's Cuba, Lynsey Addario's Afghanistan, a little Lightroom 4, fish tacos & iced coffee.  Donna Ferrato takes us through 30 years of 'living with the enemy' and Robert Llewellyn closes out the day with a new view of flowers. Stop. No - just pause...

Jinx smokes, Siri toys with Vince, Stanley speaks and Nick gets an autograph.
