Lifestyle Photo Shoots - Collection 2



This is a collection of shots that I directed for a local independent mental-health hospital. I made my casting by recruiting interested individuals off of Craigslist. (Budgets as they were.) For the most part, I was looking for average, all-Americans that could show that they were empowered, and maybe not all there yet, but on their way to recovery. Many of these shots were over a three-year period.

Lifestyle Photo Shoots - Collection 1

The photos above are just small sample of various photo-shoots that I art directed for a local mental-health hospital. (Photography by Dan Bishop.) Each shot was tailored for a specific unit and these shots are currently featured in print and online marketing. They were a lot of fun and the results were well recieved.

A to Zoo Milwaukee Direct Mail

Working with a team of directors and writers, I came up with the idea of "A to Zoo" and developed this direct mail piece and type treatment. This piece unfolded into a 18x24 poster.

It was received really well with a tremendous response rate and the Milwaukee county zoo had a huge spike in new members signing up for the zoo pass.

Herrington Photoshoot

From The Design Tracts

Last week was a hectic schedule. Between three photoshoots and my normal work, I packed in the hours. This is an outtake of me doing what directors do best, re-arrange stuff for the camera.

The day's shots came out flawless and we had wonderful talent to back us up. Special thanks to L&M Productions for casting assistance and to our volunteer talent.

OCD Photoshoot Outtake

From The Design Tracts
A couple of weeks ago, I directed a photo shoot for a local mental-health hospital, featuring the OCD unit. The shoot went really smooth and looking at the shots, we got lots of useful photos. Our volunteer talent did a great job. Special thanks to Dan Bishop for another high quality, profitable day of shooting.

Here I am dressing the set with some blankets.

Me, directing from the ground.

From The Design Tracts

From a few week ago as I tried to direct the shoot which was up on the high ropes 40 feet above me. Even from the ground, I hung on for dear life.

Rogers photo-shoot out take

From The Design Tracts
Two weeks ago, I art directed a photo-shoot for a local mental-health hospital. While setting up the treadmill, I clearly demonstrate why an ape like me is better behind the camera barking orders, instead of in front of it. This week I have a hefty schedule of photo shoots. I am looking forward to getting on set, directing our volunteer talent, and working with Dan Bishop once again.

Goofing Off

From The Design Tracts
A week ago I directed the Children' photo shoot for a local mental-health hospital. Here I am, kicking back with a coffee, directing the shoot and mugging for the camera.

Behind the Scenes PhotoShoot - Day 1



Today, I got to work on the photo shoot for a local mental-health hospital after months of planning. I hired Dan Bishop to do the photography. Day one so far was fantastic. Lots of good stuff to review later.
