Great posters inspired by 70s and 80s packaging and broadcast graphics. His stuff reminds me a lot of Scott Hansen’s work. Of course, I mean that in the best way possible. There is something about this style that feels so familiar.
I was hired by Digital Kitchen to take photos of the whole staff in the Chicago, New York and Seattle offices. The fact that I am a current employee of DK probably helped the decision though. It was a great opportunity for me to take more portraits and experiment with different lighting techniques. I constructed a homemade ring-light and a cover for my soft-box that emulates a ring light.
It’s was nice to try out so many different ideas and shots without being stressed on time. These shots took place over several days and post processing took over a week. The shots are published in Digital Kitchen’s new Reel packaging and they are used extensively on the Digital Kitchen Website. Here is the whole set from all the offices.
Welcome to greyscalegorilla.com/blog. I created this as an extension to my photo site. I constantly find ideas and techniques that inspire me in photography, motion-design, film, web, business, and advertising. I hope to be able to share these ideas and thoughts through greyscalegorilla/blog. Also, I tend to be a HUGE researcher when it comes to equipment, techniques and toys, so some people ask me what to buy because they know I did some serious work to come to a decision. Finally, if any of you have any questions about my photography (https://greyscalegorilla.com/photos/) or my motion work (creamyorange.com) feel free to send me an email. Also, with any new site comes little problems. If you see anything on the site that isn’t working or should work a different way, feel free to comment on this post. Thanks for visiting. come back soon.
