Peyton Hillis for ESPN

If you've ever wondered how NFL running backs train to run while carrying a 380 pound defensive lineman on their back, here's a workout tip for you from Denver Broncos' rookie Peyton Hillis, try pulling an SUV around for a while. We had the pleasure of working with Peyton on a feature for this week's ESPN magazine.

Afraid, it still doesn't look right

Even with all of the ways to track open rates, and click-through rates of an email promo, there really is no way to beat the good old fashioned way of just misspelling a word an then see who's really paying attention. Congratulations to those of you who caught on to our little ploy.

I'm a tool.

Seriously, many photographers have been referred to as tools for a variety of reasons, usually this is not done in a complimentary fashion. I'm here to say that I'm proud to be a tool! 

You've got a project, you need a tool, enough said.

In Praise of the Quickie:
Sometimes you’re not looking for a long-term relationship. You have needs, we understand, we’ll do our best to help you out, no matter what you might be craving. And, we won’t stalk you, and we’ll still respect you in the morning.

New Website Launched Today

We have faith in you.

The conventional wisdom says that if you want to be remembered you should specialize, define one style, and stick with it. If you show potential clients too much, they'll get confused and forget what it is you do. True, perhaps for some, but not all.

It's never been our goal to work with the creatives who have trouble thinking for themselves. We trust you can peruse the site and see that the style we have defined translates into more than one subject matter.

The new site is much deeper and displays a much broader spectrum of our work. So, wait until you've got a few minutes, grab a cup of coffee and take a look.

Another World Record Falls!

Beijing isn't the only place that records are falling. For the second time this week the record for the fastest bicycle commute ever between my house and my studio has been shattered. This time the elusive 70 minute barrier was smashed. “ I think a real key was ignoring the phone call I got around the 20 mile mark” I said, “ had I taken the call, you never know if I would have been able to continue my breakneck pace along the bike path”. Conditions were nearly perfect this morning with temperatures in the low 60s and no wind. “The gnats along the river were also at a minimum, I think I only had to cough up one or two” I continued to myself. Another key to the record time over the 24 mile route was the lack of interference from the homeless community. At times the wandering homeless can really be tough to negotiate as they arise after a night sleeping under the various bridges along the way, “sometimes I feel of bad for them, but hey, its kind of like camping and I wish I had more time for that”.
