Shooting with bob 3/11/10

I’m back! Sorry that I’ve been gone forever, but I’ve been whoring my work around town which has caused me to have no great adventures to share with you guys. Luckily, I was called in to work with commercial/print professional photographer, Bob Grigg. Bob actually use to be one of my teachers when I was in film school and I was pretty stoked when I found out that I was actually going to be working with him on a shoot…

photo-on-2010-03-11-at-10-22 Though I don’t consider myself a photographer at all, I do have a pretty solid understanding of lighting and setting up some equipment. Bob was stoked when he found this stuff out about me, he originally just needed a grip to do basic stuff(lighting, carrying heavy stuff, and break down set). He was even more stoked when I was able to set-up his pocket wizards, his Canon 1D with tethering in aperture, and assist him during the shoot. I kinda turned into the go-to computer-geek-techguy for the shoot.

It was awesome to have another productive day. Definitely looking forward to more set work in the future. Check out more pics after the JUMP!
