Today I shared my new reel as Director of Photography with a few Twitter and Facebook friends. If you didn’t get the link, you can see it below. This collection of clips is from short films and commercials that I’ve been working on recently. Coming soon is a new website called Motion AND a Vimeo channel that will feature most of these videos in their entirety. The need for this content is growing rapidly. And we’re ready to create it. Let’s roll!
It’s fall, and it’s Friday night. To a lot of folks, that can mean only one thing—Football. A friend of mine who works as a field official invited me to shoot a high school game here in Wilmington. As an avid football fan, I excitedly agreed. One of the best calls of the night was to capture the game in black and white, which tends to elevate the drama (we all know how dramatic high school was, right?). It was a nail-biter, and the home team edged out the visitors in the final moments.

We keep cruising with our fun little road sign campaign….
We all know it’s a jungle out there, especially in the current economic climate. In a new book titled The Photographer’s Survival Guide, Suzanne Sease and Amanda Sosa Stone have put together a handbook that all shooters?newbies and veterans alike?can turn to as they battle the elements. Page 107 showcases a print ad featuring CDP imagery as an example of smart pro bono work. The authors write, “One of the best ways to get exposure is to work pro bono. Art directors seem to do their best work pro bono, and such work often gets into the awards shows and contests. This image by Chris Davis won an award in Archive, a highly respected international publication.” We’re honored and humbled by the mention, and hope this guidebook helps keep us all from having to eat bugs.
The new sign for the month of May was very positive. We’re having a lot of fun with the DRIVERS email campaign and the response has been great! The website will have the entire collection, just in case you missed the exit back there!
Great news: We just found out that Mobile Bay Addys awarded Best of Show to the Alabama State Port Authority print ads I worked on with Art Director Stephean Grimes (Red Square in Mobile, AL). The work will be forwarded on to the regional and then national (hopefully!) Addy Awards. Congrats to all of the folks at Red Square and the Port Authority who assisted with this assignment. See the ads below; for more pictures from this shoot, look for the July 18th, 2008 post titled “Shootin’…” earlier in this blog.
