I wanted to share this video by Karidis Productions for the Greater Palm Springs Convention and Visitor's Bureau. I shot the aerials and some of the b-camera on my Osmo. I think it really turned out great. Kudos to all involved!

VROOM! http://www.luminessence-photo.com/blog/2015/11/vroom I've been shooting video for Jessup Chevrolet in Cathedral City and occasionally doubling up my duties and shooting stills while on set as well. Last night we all had our adrenaline hit racing around Chuckawalla Speedway in several very speedy vehicles! As icing on the cake, Dan Jessup let me drive the white convertible Corvette Z06 on our hour drive back to Cathedral City....sublime!

Campaign ammo http://www.luminessence-photo.com/blog/2015/9/campaign-ammo I have been getting hired lately to shoot publicity stills and portraits for politicians running for office. I have really been enjoying it as it affords me the opportunity to rub elbows with some very interesting and inspiring people. My most recent shoot was with JR Roberts who is running for Palm Springs City Council. He is a very personable guy and seems devoted to the greater good - he made for a great subject!

Aerial bliss http://www.luminessence-photo.com/blog/2015/8/aerial-bliss I have been shooting with a drone for over a year now and have been having a blast doing so. I absolutely love getting angles that are not bound to terra firma! I figured it was about time that I put together a highlight reel to showcase some of my recent work.

Paradise on earth! http://www.luminessence-photo.com/blog/2015/7/european-assignment I just returned from having spent 3 weeks on assignment shooting video and stills in Switzerland and along the Danube. We were shooting for Swiss Tourism and then for Emerald Waterways. It made for some very long days in some incredibly beautiful settings! The shoot turned out beautifully and I was able to work with some really great people. Thankful to have had that assignment and looking forward to more:)

Never a dull day:)

Isamu Noguchi's Mortality http://www.luminessence-photo.com/blog/2014/8/isamu-noguchis-mortality Yesterday I had the unique opportunity of photographing an original piece by Isamu Noguchi. It was beautiful to say the least and such a privilege to be "hands-on" with the work of a true master. The setting, though not featured in my photographs, was also quite stunning - a beautiful mid-century modern home which was featured in the Ocean's 11 movie as Ruben's swanky vegas pad. The client was gracious and so easy to work with. I love photography sessions like this!
