First half of 2018
2018 has started of pretty well! I've had the opportunity to launch a brand new Cadillac, the XT4, and add to their CT6 program as well. I worked with the team at Rokkan NY for the first time and shot both in Michigan and NYC. The shoot took place in January and amazingly we had better than adequate weather! I also had an interesting shoot in the Ann Arbor area for Michael Klement's Architectural Resource. His team created a design for a farm that is greener than green, it actually gives back to the grid. It's name is Burh Becc and the Living Building Challenge has certified it as one of two structures worldwide to have achieved this level of sustainability! In February I traveled to the Palm Springs area on a trip that combined some business with pleasure. Our book, Michigan Modern: An Architectural Legacy, has finally arrived at a bookstore (or Amazon) near you and the author, Brian Conway, and I presented it to the world at a Palm Springs Modernism Week seminar event! It's been extremely well received and we expect a second edition to come out this fall. While there I met an architect, Susan Secoy Jensen, who has renovated her mid century home beautifully and she asked me to photograph it. I happened to return in early May and spent a day shooting both interiors and exteriors of her Southridge home. On both trips to the desert I traveled with my Phantom 4Pro and captured these early modern developments from the air too! Last but not least I spent a few days in Ft. Wayne, Indiana where we shot the GM Truck Plant. It is an incredible facility (much of it new) and I was so impressed with the level of automation and technology that goes into the production of a vehicle.
