shooting stars

On June 5th I visited Pixar Animation Studios for a shoot with the stars of the new animated film ‘Toy Story 3’ for USA Today.  On hand were Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Michael Keaton and comedian Jeff Garlin.

First, Hanks and Allen: The objective here was to shoot two completely different set-ups in the time allotted.  Which turned out to be 4 minutes from first shot to last.  With Keaton, however, we had a leisurely 6 minutes.  No sweat.  Mission accomplished.  Next!

Jeff Garlin was extremely affable and generous with his time and would have posed for us all day.  Either that or he just didn’t want to leave the big chair.

I recently had a wonderful shoot for Maclean’s magazine with the lovely Lisa Quinn, TV host and author, on the set of her ABC show ‘Home with Lisa Quinn’.  A quick shoot and despite having to prepare for a show taping, Lisa was very generous and brought a great sense of play to the task at hand.  Another one of those fun collaborative shoots.  Thanks Lisa!  You can find out what she’s up to here.

I am curious and I like to wander.  Not to far or exotic places necessarily.  Whenever possible I’ll stop the car and take off on foot with a camera and explore.  It is part of my DNA.

I recently visited the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley on a shoot for Barron’s Magazine where chef Almir da Fonseca was leading a three day ‘Bistro Boot Camp’ cooking class in the Institute’s very well appointed kitchen.  At the end of this particular exercise chef gave a critique of the finished plates.  When he was finished we all sat down for one truly amazing lunch!
