Sixty years ago photographer Sam Shaw, who was friends with Marilyn Monroe, created a photo publicity stunt to promote The Seven Year Itch. Even if you have never seen the movie, you know the photos. Now Coca-Cola is being charged with sexism for licensing images of models in the same pose for a product launch campaign...Read More
I recently had the chance to create a video for Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City. I worked with an amazing creative team to shoot over 80 planned shots in two days dozens of locations. The purpose of the project was to capture the single-minded purpose of the employees and staff at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. While there was a large internal audience purpose for the project, I think it resonates externally very well too.
During the process of creating the video I became aware of the monumental effort and dedication of a cancer-fighting team that is far beyond the researchers and medical staff we see in fundraising videos. I personally met dozens of employees who have dedicated 20 years or more to the mission of curing cancer by creating great meals, keeping the facilities open and safe, and making sure supplies and equipment get exactly where they need to be to support the team. The folks at MSK are an inspiring crew and I want to thank them for sharing their time and stories with us.
I was assisted in capturing their daily routines and work by a talented group of collaborators from Red J Media Design, Sublime Eye, McKay Lyall, and McNaudio Media Solutions. Thanks for your help and thanks to everyone at Memorial Sloan Kettering for your tremendous work!
I was commissioned to complete a photo essay on a truly unique location earlier this summer. Sometimes you get very lucky and a location just speaks to you. That is River Camp. The project was finally delivered and so I am happy to be able to share it here.

I recently had the chance to develop a video concept to promote CHaD HERO, the premier fundraising event for Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. The goal of the series is to motive and inspire the audience to get involved in CHaD HERO by personalizing the stories of a few participants who represent the thousands who come out to run, walk, and hike in the event. And keep it under 60 seconds please.
Luckily, the first story featured a family of natural superstars. I really hope even this short glimpse of their story inspires people to join CHaD HERO. However, what was equally inspiring was watching the entire concept being executed and elevated by two talented artists from NH/VT.
Jarred Gunnell (Director/Editor) and Chris Cammock (Camera & Stills) donated their time for the creation of this first spot. Professional photographers and videographers are often faced with the dilemma of "free" services. Everyone wants a picture or video of something and most often they want it for free. Sometimes it makes sense to build your resume, but more often than not, it can devalue your existing business. While this post won't debate that issue directly (go for it in the comments section!), I can say that watching these professionals take time out of their busy schedules was motivating to me professionally and personally. There is a time and a place for free. Thanks Jared and Chris!
