I’ve been having one crazy busy year in the life of Adam Shane Photography!
With a few advertising clients, unit still photography and promo shots for a sci-fi short film, producing my first music video, large concert and festival coverage, several out-of-state and international jobs, a few great new clients and finishing construction on my studio space right off the Las Vegas Strip…. there hasn’t been much time to update this blog or my portfolio.
I do apologize about the lack of news, and have set aside time to catch up on sharing all the great new photos I’ve been accumulating since 2012. I’m currently chipping away at my ridiculously large portfolio of favorite images, and I hope to release a new online portfolio by this weekend. Stay tuned to see some really cool new work =)
In the meantime, I have been re-posting my more social-media active client’s posts on my Facebook fan page… head on over to http://www.facebook.com/ashanephoto to check it out.
Assurance Advertising Agency has just won 3 Davey Awards for the "Comback Kid" Luxor Ad campaign featuring my photos! Way to go guys! =)
Here I am, standing next to my largest non-billboard print to date. Didn't check the exact dimensions, but it's about 15'x11' (As a frame of reference, I'm 6'4"). Next time you visit the Thomas & Mack Center is Las Vegas, NV you can see it on the left hand side of the main entrance to the concourse.
The image behind me is from the NFR 2012 promo campaign for LVE, featuring 2 time world-champion steer-wrestler, Dean Gorsuch and the Las Vegas skyline.
A little while back I was sent to Palm Springs to photograph a new rental property. While I'm not a dedicated architectural photographer, it's always fun to stretch my wings a little and keep diversity in my days. The rooms were quite small, so I had to squeeze it in with my Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 and perform the shift through Photoshop instead of a T/S lens.
TruTV just published a collection of photos I shot for Langley Productions’ Las Vegas Jailhouse. There are 12 ambient shots in the gallery here: http://www.trutv.com/shows/las_vegas_jailhouse/jailhouse_shooting_gallery.html. You can find a few more of the officer portraits (mixed in with the video captures) throughout the rest of the site: http://www.trutv.com/shows/las_vegas_jailhouse/index.html
I was upset to find that a lot of the more interesting ones I shot with the inmates and aren’t online; Even though we got proper model releases, I’m guessing they just left them out due to the potential legal ramifications. Now I need to find out what they did with all of the exterior panoramas…
Another shot from the 2012 USA Sevens International Rugby Tournament at Sam Boyd Stadium. This is a quick 5-shot panorama of the stadium at dusk. Looks like an HDR, but was all single exposure…. magic hour love! =)
One of my photos was used on the cover of another textbook. ‘Sustainable Data From Digital Research‘ from the University of Melbourne is focused on digital methods for recording information in fieldwork-based disciplines, such as linguistics, musicology and anthropology.
The photo is from the Prasanna Virupaksha Temple in Hampi, India and was digitally manipulated to show a stream of 0′s and 1′s representing the evolution of research data to a digital format.
This is an masters level educational textbook, but if it’s your field and you have any interest in ordering it, you can do so here.
Just started the behind-the-scenes gallery on my FB fan page. Over the next couple weeks I’ll be adding BTS stills from previous shoots, and will continue to update this gallery as often as possible.
One of the many reasons I love photography work so much is the diversity of assignments I’m commissioned for. Today’s shoot was definitely unique, and fully blossomed into a series of beautiful photos…
The amazing stylist, Zenaida Vibar came to the studio with a series of 3 white paper headdresses shaped like flowers. We shot them on a mannequin head in the style she requested: White on white on white with a simple 3 light setup. The combo worked perfectly for the crazy geometry she was able to weave together with paper.
Hope you enjoy them too!
