Here is the 16 page story I shot of Super Rigs for Trucks Magazine France. It features a portrait of Chad Blackwell on the cover and several other driver and couple portraits in the story. Super Rigs was held in Joplin Mo. this year and featured a parade, light show and fireworks in downtown. 16 pages is the largest story I have ever had published in any magazine to date. There is also a 4 page story on Jeff Botelho’s work truck and convertible that I will share in the next post. Enjoy!
I just got back from the Waupun truck show in Wi. On the way there I stopped by my friend Mary’s uncle’s restaurant in Milwaukee. Its called 3 brothers and serves some of the best Serbian food you have evr had
During my shoots on TV commercials, I always try to snap a few frames of film after I know I’ve captured what I need on my Digital Cameras. Here are a few shots of Aaron and Clay on set last year during the national campaign for State Farm.
In honor of the championship match in the Olympics tonight, I am releasing these never before seen outtakes from a few years ago. I shot this in Vegas during the Pro Volleyball tour that Jen and April were on. Tonight they go for the gold against Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor in London. These 2 are one of the biggest Cinderella stories of the Olympics so far! Click on each image to see at max resolution.
Today I was featured on the Urban Outfitters Blog and had my 1st audio interview run as an enhanced podcast. For those unfamiliar with newer technologies, an “enhanced” podcast is a streaming audio file that has photos scrolling through a slide show on your ipod.

Its very fitting they found my work considering they would be the #1 store I believe my book would sell in once its completed. So let me thank Bazooka Joe at Alterati.com for taking the time to interview me and Urban Outfitters for their recognition of my work. Thanks! I leave for Australia in a week to shoot the world famous Land Trains in Alice Springs!
This feature on these Language Academy students was shot back in August. They are from various
countries around the world and are thriving in this program offered by USC. This is probably the best feature story I have shot
for the university. It features Surachart Ratchajanda from Thailand, Norio Kaji from Japan, Dilyara Kenzhegaliyeva from Kazakhstan and Mazin Alahmadi from Saudi Arabia. This is a really special group of students who will be very successful in their chosen fields down the road! Thanks to Sheharazad Fleming, the fantastic new Art Director at the magazine for hiring me to shoot this story. All the best in 2012!

I have booked flights to Switzerland and Australia this summer after already going to Japan last month. Come September, I will have trucks from 4 http://blog.noplasticsleeves.com/?p=1943s represented on my site!
Coming up with a clever promo is always a fun challenge. Because I travel often shooting trucks around the US with my Mamiya 7II, selecting this landscape image of Death Valley is personal. Once printed, I had it framed making it easy for my clients to hang it in their offices or homes. I bring them to meetings as my “leave behind” piece of art. Judging by the responses, this has been my most successful self promo piece to date. What do you think?
