Reminiscing

Looking around the studio tonight, I came across a nice AP print of a lone spacewalk astronaut hovering in deep space above the earth. It reminded me of a time I photographed a heavy metal band in the “studio” at the Hutch News. Which was actually an open space in front of two desks on the way to the men’s bathroom. One of the desks which was “mine”.

So, after shooting these dudes, putting the meager lighting set away, I realized these assholes had stolen a really nice AP (albeit a mass-produced lightweight Polycontrast RC) print; it was still an original silver-based print I had on the front of my desk showing the huge nuke on the Bikini Islands sucking up several Navy warships up into its inferno. This is the closest web version I could find of the image.

Pricks. But I guess it really sums up heavy metal.

Artist George Dombeck Feature

This month’s issue of Western Art & Architecture Magazine featured a spread on local Artist George Dombeck. Though you may not recognize the name, his photorealistic paintings of barns & other outdoor themes are featured in many area restaurants & public spaces. I had a great time photographing Mr. Dombeck & his surroundings. Though the feature was called “In The Studio”, I couldn’t limit the shoot to just one space, as George also created all the architecture in his little piece of paradise north of Goeshen, AR.
