For the past almost 9 years now I have been living in NYC and have never photographed the fall colors. It has always been something I have wanted to do and for whatever reason I haven’t been able to or made the time. This year I changed all that. My wife and I rented a ZipCar and headed out of the city at 5:30am to drive 2 hours north into upstate, NY. It’s absolutely stunning upstate. My good friend and super talented photographer Ron Rinaldi lives up near Woodstock and so that’s where we headed first. I also brought along the jib and slider as I’m moving into adding more video work to my scope of creativity.
I will at some point return to the east coast and start up north in Maine and spend a couple weeks driving south doing photo and video along the way, but for now the day trip was good enough, and the color did not disappoint. It was absolutely stunning, especially around the Tannersville, and Kaaterskill Falls area.
I have been flooded with a bunch of thoughts of video and photo projects I want to do before my wife and I move back west to LA in February (check out the LA Headshots page here.). I’m setting up to do a bi-coastal thing for my headshot business as I don’t want to completely abandon what I’ve managed to build in NYC, but frankly, I’m tired of winter for awhile. The short video “Color” (Below) is the first, and the next will be one of NYC itself. Vignettes, if you will, of a city that I have come to deeply love, along with the beauty of this state. This little adventure was a nice break from an exceptionally busy month with headshots, and wrapping up post production on the Marriott San Diego Gaslamp shoot. More from that to come. I’m about halfway through the retouching on the stills, and we are also putting together a few behind the scenes videos from the Marriott shoot! For now enjoy some color! 🙂
