I had the pleasure of photographing South Shore Hospital’s marathon team on a training run last month for the hospital’s charitable foundation, a longtime client of mine.  The assignment was simply to photograph tight action of the team members running, with the goal of getting enough photos to make a 30 second TV spot.

Knowing that this year’s marathon is a special one, I wanted to do more.  In addition to the running photos, I set up a lit group photo in the few minutes I had available before the start with my studio lighting on a rock that made a quick natural riser.  It’s just one Einstein on a beauty dish, but it was enough to fill the shadows and allow the early morning sun to filter through the trees instead.  Here’s the result:

The ad is running in the Boston market now and will continue through Marathon Monday, April 21st.

Mother Brook Arts Center for Dedham Life Magazine

I was asked to photograph the Mother Brook Arts & Community Center (also known as the wonderful building that contains my studio) last month for a spread in Dedham Life Magazine chronicling the changes underway as everyone gets up and running, with a particular emphasis on the Metalmorphosis studio on the first floor.  Here’s a spread of the photos that made it in plus a few extra.

I did a double take driving back to the studio this afternoon when I saw these icicles formed by our beautiful New England weather on the side of I-93 in Braintree. Had to go back and risk life and limb parking on the shoulder of a major interstate to get this picture (totally worth it).
