A True Craftsman

Another one of my projects was working with this great guy I know Ian Balding, he is tall one of The Balding Brothers cabinet designers and home rehabers.  He builds and shapes balsa surfboards, fins, nose blocks, tail blocks all for surfboards. He is building website needed some imagery, I met Ian a couple of years ago when he was trading in a Cooperfish longboard (the classic Cadillac of longboards) we immediately connected since he had a rare board for the east coast and had spent time in the point riddled area of Santa Barbara.Here is some of his stuff

A couple more

The chaos behind the lens

I love this total mess behind the lens no lighting and an i-phone, but with a push of a button and thousands of dollars of lighting equipment it is easy.YEAH RIGHT

Get er done!!!!!!!!

Ok! So finished the project for architect Linda Tuttle, and was planning to get that project wrapped up and edited for her. I get a phone call on Wednesday a week ago and it is Tracy from Blue Hand Home these guys are great, totally cool, great sense of style and amazing store. Yes, Wilmington is  ok to step outside the box. Anyways, Tracy has this great client that needed my services and quickly. This scares me sometimes but the home was great and the home owner was pleasure to shoot for.I met Lisa and immediately knew what neede to be done. I scouted Thursday created my shot list, booked my assistant and arrived Friday created 10 shots which took all day but went really well. I have production still from the shoot and some finished images.Thanks Arnie, Tracy , and Lisa.
Just a few others. This truly an amazing house, an upgraded beach house that continues the tradition of Wrightsville Beach retains the character that  is now long gone. I would love to see this house in 20 years once the shabby chic has been applied through time. 

On the other side of the lens

Well kids I know it has been a hot minute since the last update, but I have been workin!!! I really love what I do. So here I am jammed in the corner in the Osprey nest of this beautiful home,about to have my knee spazz and kick the camera over but it is  worth it and  Linda Tuttle was extremely pleased with images which makes very happy. I am a Leo which means I like to be praised. Seriously though I always strive for better and to create great shots.  So here is a look on the other side of the lens and several others, from the shoot. Enjoy!!
