Pinhole 4×5 Camera B+W Polaroids

I bought a pinhole camera last week and shot these Polaroids today here at a house in Laurel Canyon. I was tech scouting a fashion story I will shoot in a few weeks. The shots I took feature the stylist I will work with named Lindsey in them. We are going for a 70s retro feel for this shoot.

This was shot with 400 asa polaroid which isn’t even made any more. I am really looking forward to this shoot!

Trucks Magazine France Cover Story on Chrome and Elegance Calendar Shoot

The story includes details about my vision for the shoot with Agnes Olech on the cover. Its Peterbilt’s 75th anniversary next year. This calendar pays homage to Peterbilt’s “Class Pays” campaign that included beautifully styled women with trucks from over 5 decades of design. Victoria Barabas, who I met on  TV shoot for Dos XX last year, is the new actress featured this year seen here in the lower left. Trucks Mag France 1

Shot in Yakima Wa. during the ATHS show, this shoot brings the best looks Hollywood has to offer to the custom trucking world. Look for stories in Workbook and PDN.

Just shot 2 amazing shoots here in SoCal

I drove out to San Jacinto Ca yesterday afternoon for a great sunset shot and then again this am for a shoot of the same truck in downtown. I shot a Peterbilt 352 and wanted 2 diff location options because COE are my favorite style of truck. It was a lot of driving and the traffic yesterday was terrible all the way out by I really believe I came away with the goods. This was a feature for Large Car Mag and the truck was just at the Trucking for Kids show last weekend in Irwindale. I have a fashion shoot next Tues then fly to Dallas on Thurs to attend the show at Peterbilt in Denton. Here is a teaser in the meantime Stever Vermeer 352  25

I also wanted to include a cool throw back photo from a model kit for a comparison:

I am so proud to have another cover story in a trucking industry magazine overseas. Commercial Motor is the
top commercial trucking magazine in the UK. The editor did a great job with the interview and back story on the making of the calendar.

Truck Stop Pinball

I have always associated the old indy truck stops with great pinball games. I love the art work on this particular model!

Flaunt Magazine Still Life

Here is an assignment I shot for Flaunt’s “Nether Issue” which just came out this week. The idea for the shoot is that this trunk contained these various pop culture items and serves as a time capsule that wont be opened for another 1000 years. The contents include, a Yolo hat,an iPad with Instagram on it, the Kate Upton SI, a Fifty Shades of Grey book etc. If the trunk was discovered that far in the future, the expedition crew would have a good idea of the vapidness of American culture in 2012. I shot this photo at my Disc Golf course near Dodger Stadium because I liked the quality of the dirt there over beach sand. This is my 1st contribution to Flaunt and was a unique assignment from this magazine.
