The Tattoo

I have been meaning to post this for a long time now,as the year is coming to an end I feel the pressure to get all those little to do's of my list.
When I was in Miami recently on a shoot.I got a Tattoo. I had been planing this for a while and put a lot of thought into it.I have always loved the work of Helmut Newton & have one of his prints hanging in my house.
After weeks of going through as many of his images I finally narrowed it down to his iconic image for French Vogue taken in 1975.
I found an amazing Tattoo Artist  called "Pride" who had some amazing work as well as many name clients.
Here are the picture's.

Next stop Miami.

Off to Miami tomorrow for 10 days of shooting.
I will try and post when I am down there.

Where did Tat's Tattoo's go!!!!!!!

When I was shooting on the SS JEREMAIH O'BRIEN recently. (see post below).
I met a gentlemen that worked there who is in his 70's and is covered head to toe  in tattoo's.
I asked him if he would sit for me for a TinType session. 
Well it was pretty crazy as we started to develop the first few plates you could not help but notice that all his tattoo's disappeared when shooting only with the Tin's.
I discovered that then plates are sensitive to blue & did pick up the blue ink on his Tat's.
He was even more shocked as he had not seen himself without tattoo's for some years.

Working on Sunday!!!!

Doing some editing/photoshop work today on a personal shoot from last week.
We got access to shoot on the SS JEREMIAH O'BRIEN.
Got many many great shots from that day which slows down the editing.
But that's a good thing.

I had just asked the model to sit in while we did some tests but its one of my favorites from the day.

Breaking Boards

Started a four day Tony Robbins  seminar today.
It was definitely a fun & very motivating day.
When you have your own business I think any kind of self motivation is great.
The highlight was definitely at the end when I got my chance to break through a 1 inch wooden board with the soundtrack to Rocky, Eye of the Tiger playing very f*&king loud in the background.

Victoria Springs, Nebraska

Thought this would be good to start my postings.
I was on a shoot in a small town called Broken Bow, Nebraska
I had finished at about 5pm and took a drive using my GPS & found this cool little picnic spot with no one around.The light was just at the magic time.
