Fifth Third Bank Executive Portraits

I have a terrific new client, Fifth Third Bancorp.
My assignment was to photograph their new CEO and 7 other top executives.
We chose two locations in one of their buildings in downtown Cincinnati.
I came in the evening before the shoot to set the lighting for both areas.
We were given 20-30 minutes to do make-up and shoot in both of the areas we chose.
At the last minute a third shot on a canvas backdrop was added.
I rigged the canvas so that I could swing it into place behind the subjects after the second shot was done saving a lot of time and extra lighting.

Cancer fighter for critters

A high end vet clinic, CareCenter hired me to photograph their new laser radiation machine for treating cancer in dogs and cats. This tech has only been in service for humans for a short time.
I'm told that in the past it has taken years for tech to make its way to vet clinics from human use.
It has the ability to pinpoint the treatment to a small area on the subject reducing the side effects.

Nikon D800 , Nikon 24-85mm   2 monolights, one with 24"soft box camera rt, one bounced to ceiling camera left.

Executive Portraits

I'm shooting portraits for a law firm over the next few weeks. Most law firms just ask for me to use a canvas backdrop. This law firm allowed me to use spaces in their offices as the backdrop. Using the environment is so much more creative and interesting. I have 80 attorneys to photograph and I plan on shooting in 4 to 6 different areas of their offices so that there is more variety.

I shot with a Nikon D800 equipped with a Nikon 85mm 1.8. I shot at f 5 to keep the background out of focus. The photo with the window in the background was backlit with  a mono light equipped with a 30 degree grid and amber gel.

Balluff,Inc. HQ building

My client Balluff, Inc. hired me to shoot their new North American HQ building.
They asked for some drone shots as well to show their old building in back as well as the foot bridge connecting the two buildings.

I shot their building over the course of 2 hours. One was one hour before sunset, the other right at sunset combined with a sky shot earlier.

More Surgeons ..... The Lighter Side

This is an out take from my previous shoot of the surgeons. It turned out to be a favorite of mine as well as of the group !


Recently I was assigned to shoot for Care Center in Cincinnati, an urgent care veterinary hospital .
They wanted me to document a new procedure featuring their top surgeons.
Here are a couple of my images from the shoot.
