Print Box: Black Gold

11/23/2015Video

Third in our series showcasing some portraits taken on assignment at the Black Gold Club, Miami. I was actually on assignment to only do a portrait of the owner of the club. The portrait I took was so-so and I was worried that my editor wouldn’t like it, so I asked the owner if I could take pictures of the club that night and he gave me full run of the place. I spent the majority of the time in the strippers changing rooms capturing these striking portraits. It was both a very educational and an eye opening night.

Print Box: Documentary

09/13/2015Video

Second in our series showcasing some of our documentary work spanning 20+ years.

When I first got into photography I had no access to studios and lighting so I would capture what was around me- the people I hung out with and the environments I lived and worked in. Looking back at this body of work I still continue to shoot in the same photographic style as when I first started out. Whether it’s the seedy clubs in London back in 1990 or this years image of a homeless man walking the streets of old downtown Vegas.

By complete chance we met the man with the keys to the archive rooms at the Canadian Broadcast Corporation. He opened up rooms that had been barely touched containing original film, music and equipment archives dating all the way back to the early 70’s. What was more amazing is the equipment actually worked from film editing tables to original Sony CRT monitors. There were hand written notes on what film and or music had been taken out to review by whom and when. Fascinating.
