Partners in crime Aileen and Blazey way back in 2004
I was at a little concert this week and was watching a girl shoot and shoot and shoot and clearly she didn't have very much of a clue as to what to do. Lots of flash and checking the back of the camera after each shot. I snickered but then I thought, "B, you were probably the same way sans digital screen on back and without a clue as to what to do" I just copied what I thought other photographers were doing. So to humble myself here are a few selections from about 8 - 9 years ago when I was blindly stumbling through rolls of ISO 800 film.
Prince at Nationwide Arena – They gave us 30 seconds to shoot. Not the first 3 songs, not one full song, 30 SECONDS!
Common - Dayton Ohio
NSYNC - Crew Stadium - Columbus, Oho.
Cee-Lo from GoodieMOB (pre dangermouse)
Big Gip from GoodieMOB
Jermain Dupri and little Bow Weezy in the Atlanta studio
some extras from Wu and Cappadona in the back of the Newport
NEXT i think
I haven't been out shooting in a while and my online updates are getting far too infrequent. I posted these on seen and flickr back in 2006 but I think they are good enough to show again.
My friend Miguel Perez puts on and host a breast cancer awareness fundraiser at COSI in Columbus annually. I told him i would shoot the even long before my little knee injury. Although i couldn't be my normal rip and run self i still pulled out a few decent shots.
Ologie said goodbye to Antonio also known as the only black guy i've ever worked with at a design agency. I'm pretty sure it is because the contracts say you are only allowed one at a time.
He and his girl are off to new adventures in Chicago.

The other week blazey tried to put me on the spot for not heading down to see the family in Springfield. So just incase he tries to front on me again I want to show some photos from the other day - Dinner with mom and my step-pops, Snipper aka Loren F. Browder Jr. I racked my brain trying to find a place for dinner. Mom doesn't eat red meat, pork or sea food and snip doesn't eat Chicken or seafood – yes, chicken! Once i met up with them at the Book Loft they told me the local Max & Ermas was just fine.
Snip: (I'm not sure how he got the name) Loren is going to look just like him in 35 years.
The place mom insist i bring "teeny book girl". The one on the right is Max and Erma's original location in German Village

They were getting ideas for their back yard from the B&B I stay at (German Village Guesthouse)

Sole Classics is my go-to place to find kicks when i'm in town. For some reason I find it easier to go here than it is to shop around in NYC.
I'm here shooting some things for one of our clients. We are developing a bank of images to use for a couple different story lines. Below is a few quick picks for the Teen Driver story.
