John Gosling for an ongoing project

I am often thinking up projects that I am interested in shooting, and a lot of the time it begins with the types of portraits I want to take. I'll come up with a lighting idea and then I get on the look for subjects. I wanted to change things up a little for a new shoot project. I have decided to first find subjects and then tailor a shoot to the subject. 

I'm toying with names for the project... 
'A gaggle of Goslings' ...? 
'Not related' ...?
'No relation' ...?

So first up in this project we have John Gosling. John is an artist/print-maker who shares a studio in the Torpedo Factory. If you get a chance you should check out his work {https://www.theartleague.org/content/gosling_2015}.

NBA Media Day 2017: Washington Wizards

I photographed some pretty cool portraits for NBA Media Day at the beginning of the season. I wanted to shoot something a little moodier than usual and piggy backing on last years media day I knew I wanted to shoot with blue and red gels again. 

Pretty simple set up. 3 lights. We have the key light as a medium octobox placed high and pointed down and forward. And then on one side a bare strobe with a red gel and the other side had a bare strobe with a blue gel. 

Here is out setup...


A 9 foot black seamless from Savage, a medium octobox for the key; high and to camera right, and then 2 stripboxes for rim lighting coming from each side (one with a blue gel and one with a red gel). 

And here are the images we came out with.

Big thanks to the Wizards staff for prompting me on the screaming/cheering photos!
