Brains, Brunettes, Millions Billions, Kittens

Two of my favorite shots from last week were;


Nun brains;

There is a room at the University with over 600 human brains and counting. Read more about it from Emma Carew here.

Also did a 15 min shoot with former american idol contestant Casey Carlson for a story by Kara Nevsig.

Then I'll finally put up a little video work. Not as great as I wanted this one to be, mostly because of the export and the fact that my trail version of Final Cut Express is over so I can't fix it now along with the banding. Millions Billions was outside in the cold playing at Red Bull's open ice so I took some video of him. No sound just because it was too windy and the d90 has horrible audio.

Finally some shots around the apartment. Had an intense amount of homework/work to do on Sunday so I locked myself inside and got it done.

Success Post!

_DSC0225-Edit
After a long season of driving all over the place, fighting a broken collarbone, and release delays my friend Alex Horner finally released his edit of winching. 
(I had some B-roll in it *cough, cough, shoulder palish*) 
It's pretty amazing...

Also...
Band friends The Anytime released their new myspace with my picture as the header. After a long day of shooting before they headed out to New York we had to redo the photos because the members looked old to the manager. I was a little disappointed because I loved the other pictures, but it was fun to hangout with these guys again. They paid in pizza.

These guys just got picked up by the same guy who manages Versa Emerge and are going to be the next poster on teen girls walls across the country. Plus their myspace looks saweet thanks to designbyjeff.

Finally...
I also did a photo for the Daily of president Bob Bruininks. After a long interview I was able to snap 15 frames while his next meeting people crowded around me. I do not want this guys job having to cut millions off a budget.

Michael Haase

I did a shoot for Mike as a promo for an upcoming show his band Lights Out Dancing is doing on his 21st birthday.
Here's a preview, I'll let your mind fill in the blanks for now;
