Love him or hate him, one thing you have to admit is that despite his wealth, Donald Trump is a good family man. I was shooting an ad with Donald and his dad way back in 1981. I have always liked to shoot constantly and I caught this look between the two. They really related well and seemed to truly like each other. I enjoy hearing from his own kids these days (who might be the same age he was then). Family is important.

The shoot ended up with over 250 different images each to be stripped out and delivered. It took 2 days (really 2 1/2 days but they are friends so I just billed for 2). Hey, they are bringing me back in to shoot some others soon. I really look forward to hanging out with these folks once again.

Here is another shoot for Wolves VS Lions clothing company. This shoot involved fashion stills, background video and still photography. Much of the profit from this company goes to charity so I always feel good working with them.
By the way, the snow from the first shot was made by my client bringing in a diaper (clean). We tore open the lining and dumped the sodium polyacrylate into a bowl. After that we just added water (a little at a time) and broke it up with a fork. There you go! Fake snow! I will say that my art director did pull out some cotton diaper stuff from the pile. You can probably purchase sodium polyacrylate on it's own somewhere. I think it looks great! Cool!

Jeanie was a sweet Texan who drove a Texas Truck and just happened to be an excellent photo assistant. She helped me set up and light the set for this Trump Father and Son shot for Brooklyn Union Gas. One funny note is that the agency (Moss Advertising) spent more money on retouching than on my fee. Not because I did anything wrong but rather because first Fred said "I can't be shorter that Donald! Then Donald said I can't be shorter than my dad! Some things never change...

I was doing a model shoot for my soon to be nephew (maybe) but good friend, Joseph. We covered portraits and studio full figure as well as shots outside. Since we were there I had him throw on a new Wolves vs Lions shirt. It's good to keep all your clients happy.

Something to keep me busy. This is part of a project for Wolves vs Lions clothing. I love the company because they donate their profits to charity. What could be better than that? A little off figure fashion and jewelry. Too much fun. If not, why bother?
