Bio_Copping

A few years ago my now-wife made a simple request that radically changed the way I thought about what I was doing with my photography and how I could actually make a difference with it. She asked me to create some portraits of our three dogs (two of which are rescues) because they were getting older and we had very few pictures of them that weren’t made with a camera phone. She wanted something that was a little more professional feeling, something that she would be proud to share and hang in our home. I had never photographed animals before, but I was game for the experiment.

Thankfully, that first experience was a really positive one. So positive, in fact, that my wife (a long-time volunteer at our local animal shelter) suggested that I might be able create some images for a few of the long-term residents of the shelter that were having trouble getting adopted.

Creativity doesn’t come easy, at least not for me. It’s more of a fight with plenty of ups and down. Often it involves climbing to the top of one ladder, only to discover the need to jump off. Through it all I’ve discovered that striving to become more creative is a challenge worth the reward, because it helps us to become more of the person who we were designed to be.

In my own journey, I’ve found that when the creative spark is ignited we create our best work and lead more meaningful lives. Yet, becoming creative isn’t as easy as it seems. So I set out to write a book on the topic with the goal of helping others to become more creative and alive. And I’m super excited to announce that as of last week, the book has been released! The title of the book is, The Creative Fight. Check out the trailer below:

Do you want to become more creative? If so, read on!  Below are a few stories, images and ideas that I hope will strike a chord and inspire you to fight the good fight and live a better life. Let me begin by introducing you to the cast of characters that I hope will inspire: Miguel, Andrew, Jack and Chuck. The first character you probably know. His full name is Miguel de Cervantes. But what you probably didn’t know, is that…

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you probably saw a post or two of mine looking for a cool car to shoot after my seminar in Phoenix. Well I found one. Actually, two.

Last year, I got to shoot a classic Cobra and a brand new Corvette at photographer Paul Markow’s studio in Phoenix (a super-nice guy with a killer studio — big enough to shoot a car no problem, and a cove roof to bounce the lights off). This year I wound up shooting a Maserati GranTurismo — seen above (believe it or not, I rented it from Enterprise rent-a-car in Phoenix for a song), and then Adam Thaler, a photographer who follows me on Facebook, saw my search for an exotic car and brought over a red Ferrari California — so the shoot was on!

Mornin’ everybody. Sorry for the late post, but…I just woke up. LOL! (The photo above of me, with the famous Sydney Opera House in the background, is by Australian Photographer Keith McInnes).

We just got back home last night from our trip to Australia and New Zealand (and quite a few long flights), and while it was a totally incredible trip, it’s still always great to get back home.

Lots to share on Monday – I’m working on a post with images from the trip and the plan is to share those on Monday  (I’m still culling through the shoots).

Even though I’ve been on the road, the gang back here at KelbyOne has been working on lots of cool stuff I hope to share some of that with you next week, along with stories from the trip, and lots of fun news – should be a great week. :)

Anyway, just wanted to touch base; say “howdy” and let you know I’m back in the saddle (so to speak).  I’ll be shooting the Bucs again this Sunday and I’ll be back here on Monday with some shots from the trip, and I hope you’ll check back then.

Have a great weekend everybody – hope you make some great images!

Best,

-Scott
