Meet Summit Jaffe...

Canon 5D - 1/15 sec - F 5.0 - ISO 100 - 17mm

Meet Summit Jaffe... Summit is 13 years old and a musical whiz kid. He's got a real talent for using instruments and computers to create a very cool sound... and he is a very cool kid.

I brainstormed the concept for a few days before getting in touch with Summit and his mom... Asheville Middle School was gracious enough to allow us in for a few hours one morning... it's summer time, so the place was empty. This particular full-bleed single-page layout in the magazine requires the image be 1/2 negative space... I figured the white ceiling of the hallway would be a nice way to make some.

Utilizing my traveling pack of 4 Canon strobes and an 800WS mono-light I threw this one together with the assistance of Summit himself... it's turned out to be one of my faves... though I wish I had rearranged the desktop slightly...

Make sure to read the article published by the awesome folks at WNC Magazine.

Meet the Pearsons...

Meet the Pearsons... Richard and Alison. Richie is one of my best buddies from Brooks and last weekend he married a stunning and magnificent young lady.
In my eyes, most PHOTOGRAPHY IS NOT ART... but Richie is an artist, in the truest sense of the word.
These pics were taken in Charleston a few months back... it rained on us just about the whole weekend, but boy was it fun!

Richie + Alison = Love 4ever
