Andy Santamaria : Conecting Me To You

Yesterday was a great day at the Internship at the Callahan & Co. studios in Mpls. Andy Santamaria was there who created Conecting Me To You. CMTY started out as a blog that covered small businesses in the Twin Cities. In a short time, it’s become a platform for launching ideas and exploring how business can make sense of the ever-changing web. Be sure to check it out; Great stuff!

Anyway, since Andy was at the studio, we decided to do some test shots with him for his site, which also gave me some more time shooting in the studio. Always a good thing. Below is one of the shots from the shoot.

Magic Kingdom

I spent this past weekend, back home, in Pelican Rapids, MN. I had some photo ideas running through my head that I thought would be perfect for this setting, plus I had the perfect person to model in it for me. My idea was to construct a photograph of a boy making a snow fort with a warm orange-ish light coming from the inside of this entrance to the snow fort. The idea behind this was that when you're younger and you build forts, they're no longer piles of snow, or even blankets on chairs, it becomes something much more than that -- It becomes this ginormous, magical place that only exists in your own little world, and a mind/imagination of a child; The good ole days. So with that concept in mind, I made this photograph. Hope you enjoy! Be sure to keep checking the website as well!

Ok...Who's The Wise Ass

So you may or may not know, but I have been Interning with Conor Lawrance and Callahan & Co. since around this past December. It has been a great time and an outstanding learning experience. Conor is always pushing me to keep shooting and is always trying to get me to think forward.
Yesterday, Conor booked the studio for me so I could come in and take advantage of my time Interning with them and use their space. That was Huge! The experience that is, the studio is huge to...haha
Anyways, below is one of the shots I got from yesterdays photo shoot with my dog Izzy. I hope you enjoy!
