PHOTO BRIGADE WITH ROBERT CAPLIN

Robert Caplin of The Photo Brigade and I sat down a couple weeks back at Adorama’s event space in NYC to talk at length about my work with rescue dogs, amazing rust belt entrepreneurs like Wrafterbuilt and Lake Effect Ice Cream, how ASMP helps photographers run smart and sustainable businesses, and how Project Prescription can help you build amazing relationships with clients.

Check it out in the video above!

Portraits of Casey Bitzberger

Two very different stylistic takes on portraits of the amazing Casey Bitzberger.

This was a very playful shoot – in addition to the formal portraits that we created there was also large number of iPhone and mobile images from the production – of which the above was my favorite.

And Finally!

Just us having fun shooting video on my phone after the shoot.

She won…

Special thanks to Nicole Barry and Tom Newton.

Signal One

For the last few weeks I have worked with editor Solomon Nero to create and mix this reel of my still photography work. My mission this year has been to create experiences that exist outside of the standard postcard/e-mail static that so many creative buyers and editors have to sort through daily. I like making and sharing cool things that are a little more fun and personal – like this video and my recently released magazine promo.

If you enjoy this work I would love it if you would share this promo with others  – and you can always see more of the work featured in this video in my main portfolio. 

Pummel Vision

I spent a little while today playing around with a new online service called PummelVision, which creates pretty simple yet impressive music videos from your online photos from across a variety of services. I’m intrigued to see how this service grows in coming iterations.

Video: Adam Rosina

I’m working on a bunch of new short video pieces currently. Here is the first in a series of short character and environmental studies. This first one is a short (just over a minute) character study on the film critic and writer Adam Rosina, known more professionally as The Angriest Critic. I’m trying to produce one of these every week or so or when I can between photography assignments.

Supreme General Promo

Supreme General – Promo from Luke Copping on Vimeo.

Now that I have finally recovered from the respiratory infection and throat injury that have kept me out of commission the past few days, I wanted to share the final version of the small promotional video I shot and edited together for Supreme General. Getting used to working with motion has been quite the learning experience, I know theres some kinks to work out but Im excited to keep moving forward with it.
