Ben Washburn - Portraits

You all might be familiar with Ben from the Mission: Acquire video he participated in creating with me late last year. Anyway, I shot along side Ben several times during many Peirao shoots and I have to say I like the guy. He's pretty cool and he's got a great eye for photography.

He just recently graduated from Bradley University we both hit the streets of Peoria to grab some pictures and celebrate!

Heart Technologies Inc. - Decatur Office

I just got back from a vacation in SC and I'm trying to get back on top of things. Sorry for the delay in posting. A week or so ago I went down to with Heart Technologies to their Decatur branch to take more publicity images for their marketing department. They were looking for "real" images that represented what they do without the use of professional models. All individuals are apart of the Heart team down in Decatur.

To say the least I had a fantastic time hanging out with them and I can't wait to see how they use the images. I've posted a view a couple images we captured throughout the day.

Furniture, Remodels, and Reformation Project

Last week I spent a day photographing three locations with Will Waibel of Dan Waibel Designer/Builder. The primary subject matter however was not new constructions, but rather custom made furniture and an art deco remodel they finished. I'm unable to post these photos at this time, but I can't wait to be able to share them with you.

Other happenings last week included the inaugurating meeting for the Reformation Project. I'm incredibly excited by all that's happened in such a short period of time. Here's the run down. We have a our three, I mean four scenes selected:

• Plow Boy Controversy (optional)
• Tyndale Translating
• Print Shop Raid
• Prison Interrogation

Other topics discussed were the distribution of job titles/responsibilities. We had a bunch of people step up and offer to help out on the project along with a few brave souls who offered to take on an on-going responsibility. Here's the break down:

Director: David Price (Me)
Producer: TJ Draper & John Creath
Historian: Colton Evans
Set Manager: Justin Ryken
Wardrobe Manager: Lily Riggenbach
BTS Director: Unknown

I, just today, sent around the initial storyboards to our set and wardrobe managers to get things moving along in both of those departments. In addition Behind the Scenes scripts are in the works despite vacancy in job title. I personally think this past week was a great starting week. Let keep it up!

If you're at all interested in staying apprised of all that occurs this blog will do a fair job of documenting the project, but if you want a more blow by blow account you can become a fan on Facebook. However, if that's not enough and you want to get involved, we'd love to have your input - send me an email at
