Joe Madison Sirius XM Guinness Book of World Records Event http://mobilephotoshoot.com/blog/2015/2/joe-madison-sirius-xm-guinness-book-of-world-records-event I traveled to Washington, DC and covered an event for Sirius XM's Joe Madison and the Black Eagle Crew.  Mr. Madison stayed on the air for 52 hours in an attempt to break the current record, and encourage listeners to donate money to the National Museum of African American History and Culture which is schedule to open in the Fall of 2016.  More images will be posted once Guinness confirms the record setting event which occurred February 25-27.

Fayetteville Street Shootout Downtown Raleigh, North Carolina http://mobilephotoshoot.com/blog/2015/1/fayetteville-street-shootout-downtown-raleigh-north-carolina Starting this month, I will shoot a series of fashion and portrait sessions down Raleigh, NC on Fayetteville Street.  Sahneiya was my first model,and she totally rocked the session!  I asked her who her favorite music artist was and she said Beyonce, so I brought out my portable bluetooth system and an hour long mix of Beyonce beats.  I like bringing music on location when possible.

Toronto, Ontario Yellow Line Photoshoot http://mobilephotoshoot.com/blog/2014/12/toronto-ontario-yellow-line-photoshoot I recently took a two week vacay in Toronto, Ontario and linked up with Toronto native model Bronwyn Martens.  I wanted to capture that subway feel.  The weather was really cold out so we rode the Yellow Line.  I'm looking forward to going back in the summer.

Veterans Day Raleigh, North Carolina http://mobilephotoshoot.com/blog/2014/11/veterans-day-raleigh-north-carolina Being prior service, and 3rd generation military veteran, I've never liked greeting a fellow veteran and saying "Happy Veteran's Day" because regardless of the situation, there's nothing really "happy" about it.  From the recent VA issues, returning service men and women with medical issues, and to those that paid the ultimate sacrifice, it's more of a reflection of thanks. So to my dad, my grandfather, and all of my brothers and sisters (both past and present) I salute and thank you for your service.

Pirates of the caribbean http://mobilephotoshoot.com/blog/2014/9/pirates-of-the-caribbean Temperature: 90+ degrees

Distance from vehicle to shoot location: 1/2 mile

Gear: a lot :)

This was my most grueling photoshoot this summer by far.  But the results are exactly as visioned.  The location matched the theme, and the model put the outfit together flawlessly.  There will be an update to this with the final composite, so consider these as BTS :).  Hey Disney, if you're looking for extras to star in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales", then look no further!  The final composite of this shoot will  be very interesting. I promise...

Will Travel for Photos http://mobilephotoshoot.com/blog/2014/2/will-travel-for-photos

70 years on this earth is a blessing.  I had the honor of photographing the birthday celebration of someone that was well loved by both his family, and friends (many of which called him dad, or Doctor).  Nothing satisfies me more than seeing the look on family member's faces when they love and enjoy being around each other. 

I drove from Fayetteville, North Carolina to Wilmington, North Carolina right after the snow and ice blanketed the roadways just a week earlier, so I knew I had to take my time, but luckily it had already cleared.  Do I travel....why yes I do :)

Happy Birthday Mr. Green!

Chicago Sun-Times lays off its photo staff http://mobilephotoshoot.com/blog/2013/6/chicago-sun-times-lays-off-its-photo-staff "The Chicago Sun-Times has laid off its entire photography staff, and plans to use freelance photographers and reporters to shoot photos and video going forward, the newspaper said.

A total of 28 full-time staffers received the news Thursday morning at a meeting held at the Sun-Times offices in Chicago, according to sources familiar with the situation. The layoffs are effective immediately."

Given the fact that most people get their "news" fix online these days, I believe this is going to bite them in the end......literally.  It also rumored that reporters will start receiving “iPhone photography basics” training to start producing their own photos and videos.  Really.....iPhone....specifically? 

I only hope that this move doesn't encourage other news agencies to do the same, but I believe that it will be used as a case study.

Fast n Furious Storm http://mobilephotoshoot.com/blog/2012/7/fast-n-furious-storm While out shooting today in Saint Petersburg, a storm appeared over the horizon.  Within 30 minutes it was right above me.  I'm not one to take chances on lightning strikes, so I called it a day......only to have the skies clear up 2 hours later.  As I scurried to my truck to safety, I noticed the locals were sitting out still fishing, and carrying on their conversations at the dock.  After speaking with a few of them, they told me that this happens frequently and they were used to it.  This panoramic image was made from about 6 separate images and there was no other image enhancement to this image.  Those clouds are real and looked exactly like that!
