A couple months back I shot a portrait that appears in the Spring edition of Ed Tech Magazine. The IT folks in the Edina public school district are doing some fun things incorporating ‘Bring Your Own Device’ technology in to the curriculum. Can’t wait to see how teaching methods and technology evolve as my 10-month old son makes his way through the system.
Yesterday I headed back to Splice video production house for another round of employee portraits. A few favorites from the day:
Recently my friends at Spunk Design Machine put me in touch with Splice, a company that does amazing work in feature films and video, running the gamut from production, to post production, to sound. Some of Splice’s folks are regularly featured in various trade magazines and being asked to speak at conferences, etc, so they had a need for portraits for their various PR outlets.
In addition to being great to work with – creative, laid back, collaborative – they’ve got great spaces in which to work. Here are a few of my favorites from day 1.
I don’t miss many things about my former life working in an office, but I can emphatically say that I miss treat day. So I did something about it: I bribed my way in to my wife’s treat club, picked up donuts and coffee, and photographed the experience of visiting my first treat club in a little more than six years. We had a great time.
My wife was a little apprehensive that my treats wouldn’t be up to the high standards of her club, or that enthusiasm for the photo project wouldn’t be there. But (a.) I know my way around a treat club, my friends, and (b.) give a crowd a couple dozen pastries and a small keg of caffeine, and you’ll get yourself some enthusiasm. I’m happy to say that the shoot was a success. Witness:
Faxin' 'n' treatin' - oh yeah!
Many thanks to the Third Floor North Treat Club for graciously hosting. May your treats always be plentiful and hand crafted.
