Kevin Spacey for Propellor Films and WBK Bank Poland

Had the honor of photographing two time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey in New York for WBK Bank Poland’s worldwide ad campaign. This is our third body of work for them, including actors John Cleese and Antonio Banderas. Kevin was a sweetheart to work with and one of my all time favorite actors. Shot at the beautiful Steiner Studios in Brooklyn.

Kevin and agency/clients look over the take.

Visit Orlando – Change Your World TV spot

Directed and produced this :30 broadcast spot for Visit Orlando with our friends at PUSH advertising agency. It is airing in the UK now. The Orlando Sentinel wrote a front page story about the production today. Found the London cab up in Charleston, SC and had it trucked down here. First we had to have the
alternator replaced (it wouldn’t start), then we replaced the passenger side window when someone smashed it out while we filmed in downtown Orlando making it double as downtown London. Loved our talent we found. Great crew overall. A few behind the scenes pix..

Boys and Girls Club fundraiser spot

Sports Illustrated Golf+ cover with Ian Poulter

Had a great shoot with the fashion forward PGA star Ian Poulter for the cover of Sports Illustrated Golf+. Sports Illustrated challenged me to come up with a cover concept for this one, and as I thought about Ian and his love of fashion it struck me that his golf game and his life is framed by the passion he has for clothes and design. Why not photograph him in an actual frame to represent this idea? The magazine and Ian loved it. We shopped for antique frames with a lot of character to play off his polished look. I brought in Yolonda Winters for hair and make-up and Christine Sonnenberg for wardrobe. Yolonda and Christine are part of our production team we usually use when shooting motion commercial work. My friend Gary ‘Razor’ Bogdon was assigned to shoot the documentary day in the life story on Ian as well as behind the scenes video. He also shot the beautiful opener for the story. Thanks to my great crew, Milena DeVincenzo, Ricky Fontenez, Miguel Valdes. Written by Alan Shipnuck, Picture Editor Miriam Marseu.

New Harley Davidson spots

Directed some new spots for long time client Orlando Harley Davidson. These were unscripted, from the heart, testimonials by team members who work there. John Atkinson, DP, edited by Adam Showen. They are airing in Florida now. We head up to New Hampshire in June to shoot some more.

Luke Donald for Golf Magazine

Shot a little fashion piece and directed a short video on Luke Donald for Golf Magazine this month. Jessica Marksbury came down from New York for the interview. Also a 30 second peek at behind the scenes (thanks Ryan Wendler and Adam Showen). Photographed in West Palm Beach, FL.

Bill Bond for Golf Digest, The man with the golf ball eye

This was one of those assignments that while I was shooting it, I still couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Feature story for Golf Digest on Bill Bond who lost his eye when he was attacked by inmates at a prison where he was a guard. He almost lost his life in the attack. During his rehab he discovered golf and fell in love with it. He loved it so much that he had a doctor make a prosthetic eye that looks like a golf ball. He also had an artist paint a scene of a man teeing off where the iris would go. Most unbelievable thing I’ve ever seen. Super nice guy with a super low handicap to boot. Read the story here.
