Working with Charley Hutton and Detroit Ad Agency Worden and Company on Paint Manufacturers PPG

We just got the final layouts for Paint Manufacturer PPG with American Hot Rod's own Charley Hutton.  Quite a honor working with TJon at Worden and Company Ad Agency out of Detroit on the project. 

You probably recognize Charley from Boyd Coddington's shop on the TV show American Hot Rod.  What a talent.  His customs are unbelievable.

Shooting glass.

We have been having a blast at the studio shooting new footage for our show reel.  That's the new rig Matt built.  Works great.  Smooth as glass and inexpensive to construct.  Downhill skateboard trucks and wheels and a piece of Detroit Iron.

Here, we are having some fun with glass, one of our favorites.  We are really getting super comfortable with motion.  The possibilities are endless and working out complex visual challenges is what gets us up in the morning and keeps us at night.  

We are starting to work on some boards for a couple some short films that should be in production soon.  For now we are kicking the tires and seeing how far we can push our shooting skills, lighting schemes and editing.   We aren't getting much sleep.  Hope to be posting soon.

Business Insider Love

I want to thank Katy Moeller and the gang at the Idaho Statesman, along with Brad Larrondo, Sherise Jones, Billy Michell, Red SkyPR and Nick Sheneck, for helping with our story in this weeks  Business Insider.  I am feeling a lot of love out there and I really, really, super appreciate it.

It's very humbling and quite a honor to have a story written about the studio.  Katy did a incredibly thorough job and spent a lot of time with Jim and I understanding exactly what we do.   It is a rare opportunity to have a forum of this kind to let the folks out there know what we are all about, what we believe in and the immense amount of passion we have for the images created at TDG.

I also want to thank all the clients past and present that gave us shot, had faith and allowed us to collaborate with them.  I appreciate you all.

So appreciated.

I was just notified that the Photo District News "Shot Sports" Awards have been posted on the PDN website.   We are so stoked to have garnered 2 of these awards.   Seeing the incredible level of international photographers, agencies and campaigns that were represented makes it even sweeter.

Thanks to the Idaho Steelheads, and Greg Poe for all their support.
