International Firefighters’ Day
From a photo shoot I did for a magazine series about fitness in the military. At March Air Reserve Base. Photo shoot note… I shot this with a Phase One medium format camera system.
“International Firefighters’ Day is observed each year on 4th May. On this date you are invited to remember the past firefighters who have died while serving our community or dedicated their lives to protecting the safety of us all. At the same time, we can show our support and appreciation to the firefighters world wide who continue to protect us so well throughout the year.”
“The role of a firefighter in today’s society – be it urban, rural, natural environment, volunteer, career, industrial, defence force, aviation, motor sport, or other is one of dedication, commitment and sacrifice – no matter what country we reside and work in. In the fire service we fight together against one common enemy – fire – no matter what country we come from, what uniform we wear or what language we speak.”
– Lt JJ Edmondson, 1999
Emily Made My Day!
Thank You Emily Hayworth for being so gorgeous and fun in front of my camera at the Palm Springs Photo Festival. Actually a borrowed camera, a Phase One IQ250 medium format 50 mpx digital system. It really does shoot beautifully! So Thanks to Morgan Acaldo from Phase One for handing over $40,000 or $50,000 of camera and lens on the spur of the moment! Great camera system, but Emily made my day!
Phase One Camera Roll Out…
Great fun yesterday trying out the Phase One IQ250 Camera. This will be more of interest to my photographer friends here, but… The IQ250 is the first CMOS sensor version for medium format and at 50 megapixels. I did this photograph with available light at iso 3200 and it is great.
This workshop was sponsored by Samy’s Camera, Phase One, Profoto USA lighting and Eizo monitors. Astounding equipment, that I use, and as well Samy’s Camera puts on great events! I even won a Samy’s $150 gift card in the random drawing!
