Friday marked the last day in the studio for Tom’s trusty production assistant, Sherry. She decided to move on to a job that was closer to home, and that would give her an opportunity to handle more baby poop.
After hitting a couple of snags with some music licenses, we’re re-releasing the paintball office video with a new soundtrack, courtesy of yours truly.
If you haven’t seen it yet, give it an ogle– this video was picked up by blogs all over the place, netting us over a hundred thousand YouTube hits and making it our most successful video yet. Every time I make a new video, I think about how the paintball video set the bar. It was a semi-enjoyable nightmare to compose a new soundtrack for this video, so let us know what you think.
Brandon has his series of Shakey Face images published in the “up and coming” section Russian Esquire Magazine. We’ll give you 10 rubles if you can tell us what the two page spread says…we have no idea.
I just happened to be cruising around the ol’ interweb recently and took a trip down memory lane– I watched the Paintball Office video again, and then came across a little interview piece Brandon did as a result.
Now that you’ve seen a few videos showcasing Brandon’s work, we thought we should show you how Greg’s food shoots go down. A half day of shooting, two food stylists, an assistant, a photographer and two bottles of wine later, you get an in-depth look at what what it takes to produce a portfolio-worthy photo by Greg Stroube.
“For the emerging photographer, you are symbol of what it is that one could aspire to become. For that reason, the ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) board has convened and bestowed upon you the honor of being the first recipient of the “Photographic Vanguard Award.” It is my hope that you will honor me by allowing me to work with you to create an event that highlights your accomplishments, by presenting a retrospective of your work, and by allowing those that have worked with you, and been inspired by you, an opportunity to share that with the community.”
Event date will be May 8th. We’ll post an article with details soon as we get it.
