“I’m 77 years old and I’m still out here chasing these squirrels. I always have done it.”
We traveled down to South Carolina just about a year ago to spend two days in Sumter National Forest hiking, hunting, photographing and filming none other than Mac English, a champion squirrel hunter. We were out there in the woods – far out there. It was quite the experience, but all things considered, I’d go back and join a hunt any day.
Its about time! We’ve added a few new photos to the main portfolio on Crismanphoto.com – take a look and enjoy the new shots in high resolution. If you’re curious for more info, we’ll be blogging about this photo quite a bit more in the coming weeks, and you might recognize Chris’s portrait of Tumblr Founder, David Karp from a previous blog entry as well. Enjoy!
Another week on the road, another week making photos. Our travels brought us out to Cleveland Ohio this week to work on a project with our good friend Mark Masterson and The Cleveland Vibrator Company. Humor aside, they’re an all-American business that designs and manufactures industrial vibrators for all kinds of manufacturing and industrial needs. If you ever have any vibration related questions, we know some guys you could talk to.
You read that title right, Cleveland Vibrator Company. We’re spending the week photographing the hardworking all-American men and women behind an almost century old company in Cleveland Ohio. They manufacture and design industrial and scientific vibration equipment – think industrial mixers and conveyor-belts, not wherever else your mind might have wandered (the gutter perhaps?). It’s an amazing location filled with genuine people who we’ve had a chance to meet and photograph this week.
There are some of truly creative people in this industry. Let’s face it, you’ve got to be constantly concepting, developing, and executing or you get left in the dust. I’m fortunate to work with some really dynamic and inspiring people, ranging from art directors, to producers, to creative directors, photo editors, art buyers, and print producers. Instead of questions about email blasts, printed promos, and portfolio reviews, I think that it’s time that I put some of them on the spot to show us their meaning of Life. “The meaning of Life” may be a little far flung to answer in only ten questions, but hopefully these interviews will serve to distill some of the inspired and intellectual energy of the creatives that we work with.
When I meet someone for the first time and they’re friendlier than me, I’ll admit it, I think there’s something wrong with them. Back in early 2010, I was attending an At-Edge event in Chicago and ran into this guy sitting by himself waiting for a meeting with a drink in his hand. When we struck up a conversation I immediately realized what a interesting guy Adam is. When it comes to photos, I believe his work is reflective of the person that he is – focused, dynamic, creative, and authentic.
It was a week full of early mornings and sunrises on the road. We put some miles on the road, traveling between Philadelphia, Bedford, NY and Allentown, PA for a combination of advertising and personal project work. The truck was packed and unpacked, octabanks set up and broken down, fuses blown and post-shoot beers consumed.
