Adventuretime with Toby - Fueled by Chocolate

The premise was strange: "the weirdest vacation ever". The prospects were looking good: a bunch of chocolate and a potential Yeti costume. The flights were booked and along came Toby.

I had lured him with the promise of a great Yeti-chasing adventure fueled by free chocolate (thanks to Lindt). The chocolate manufacturer was looking for brand ambassadors and the idea of unlimited chocolate for life (I'm just going to assume that's part of the deal) was very enticing.

Product Photography: RedBull Cola Display Fridge

A few months ago I was asked to shoot photos of a refrigerator- something I don't usually take all too many photos of. But it was RedBull, so I figured it must be a pretty cool fridge (ha!). Since the photos were destined primarily for internal communications, I had quite a lot of creative freedom in terms of staging it.

The past few months have been especially exciting with lots of new clients, returning clients, completing projects, starting new ones, magazine commissions, portfolio reviews, and a few mountain adventures sprinkled in the mix.

Sunday Scouting on the Gotthard Pass

A few weeks ago Dave and I went for a little Sunday drive to the Gotthard Pass. Initially we were headed to the Sanatorio del Gottardo down the other side of the valley, but time constraints kept us on the sane side. Instead we wandered around the Passhöhe, explored some little bunkers, and took a sneak peak of an abandoned hotel further down the road.

An Evening With The Beetles

When your friends are biologists, geologists, or any other '-ists'- you come across interesting parts of the world which you otherwise wouldn't notice. Mike was studying beetles in local habitats, and had a little collection of samples. He wanted photos, I wanted to meet the beetles. We did a quick and simple handheld documentation of the group.

Tilt-Shift Test @ ETH, Zurich

I recently rented a 24mm Tilt-Shift lens for a week of Interior shoots. I've wanted one of these lenses for ages, but the price tag is slightly restricting. But a week's worth of shooting allowed for a bit of extra time for gear testing in Zürich. I took a quick stroll around the ETH campus and here are some results.
