Beautiful America

Not long ago I completed some photoshoots for the Ad Council through the San Francisco agency, Pereira & O'Dell. It's a public awareness national campaign around recycling. The campaign has begun to roll out now and 2 of the images are shown in this blog.

Keep America Beautiful is currently running the images as headers on it's Facebook page at
https://www.facebook.com/KeepAmericaBeautiful/info

And also on it's homepage at kab.org


In addition the images are also in use at http://iwanttoberecycled.org
As the media schedule progresses you'll see my photos appear in other media spaces around the country.

Compact,

I recently worked with a fitness model on location at Corona Heights in San Francisco. The session took place in the late afternoon, and while the sun was used as my main light, I used one of my Calumet Travelites for fill. It's a 750 watts per second light and needs AC current for power. So this was a great opportunity to play with my Photogenic ION   

It's a very compact, lithium battery powered, pure sine inverter that also sports 2 AC outlets, and USB charging port. The full specifications are available here

Because the unit is so small and light, it wasn't a problem to position my lights since the Photogenic Ion was happy to work while hanging below my light on the light stand. So anywhere I wanted to place a light, there was power right there.

I've also used the device on a few other location shoots for clients and have been very pleased with the convenience of having AC power in such a small and light package.



And here are the first and last stock image sales of June
