I recently had the opportunity to photograph activist Hydeia Broadbent for the cover of POZ Magazine. In 1984, Broadbent was born with HIV, and addicted to crack and heroin. She began her activism at the age of six by appearing on TV shows like Oprah and speaking at the National Institutes of Health. Currently, she works as an author and continues to speak internationally on the subject of HIV/AIDS. I met Broadbent at my studio and did some quick change lighting setups for most of the portraits. We also walked around the grounds to get some additional photos.
IMG Worldwide recently asked us to do a commercial photography shoot for Goodyear Clothing. Originating in Akron, OH, Goodyear has become one of America's most iconic brands. We shot for three days, spending a day at SpeedVegas, a day at Nelson's Landing, and a day at Valley of Fire. Each day started around 6AM, and we utilized a one or two light setup for most of the shots. We worked quickly to get the best light of the day. The best part of working for Goodyear is the variety of cars we get to use for the shoot. The photos will be used for print and online advertising.
