so i had a shoot not too long ago for men’s journal. this is the first time i’ve ever shot for them. it was a series of portraits of a former us navy seal sniper, shot on location at a shooting range out in the california sierra nevada foothills. great story by rick telander.  ran in the december issue, although this was shot back in july.  had to wait until it ran before i could show these.

the shoot involved my assistant stephen and i setting up a white seamless in the parking lot of the shooting range:

gotta say, the photo equipment geek in me kinda loves doing shoots like these. lots of gear, props, location…

although this was one of their feature stories in the december mag (with alec baldwin on the cover), they ended up only running this photo as the lede image:

not complaining or anything. the pic was across a two-page spread. this was one of the pics that i liked from the shoot (not just because it was shot on a hassy with film). i was just hoping that maybe some of the other portraits on the seamless would have found its way into the layout. oh well.

as an experiment, i also shot some video with the 5d. wasn’t something i really planned, and was definitely an afterthought during the shoot. so as a result, i think i’m missing a few key things that would have helped the video editing. nevertheless, i did a down and dirty edit on quicktime (not even final cut or imovie), and the magazine ran it in their website:
