Redwall Photo on Numbstar

Hey all –

The awesome people at Numbstar contacted me last week about featuring me/my site on their website. Their site is a beautiful collection of photographers that they find inspiring – and they have great taste, so go check it out if you’re looking for some visual pick-me-ups.

Also, you can vote on the pictures you like (it’s not a contest, but it is nice to give some props), so make sure you do so!

Last Fast Action with Tom Higgenson

1001noisycameras.com

Just a quick note because it’s always nice to get some recognition –

1001noisycameras.com has “featured” my blog twice in the past few weeks – there was a brief write-up yesterday about my use of the 5D Mark II in concerts and on April 10th, they wrote about the Metallica pictures I took with the Lumix LX3.

Go check out the blurbs about Redwall, and while you’re there, check out the rest of the site. There’s some pretty useful info!

Company of Thieves – Behind The Scenes of “Pressure”

Company of Thieves "Pressure" Shoot

I have blogged about Company of Thieves several times, but never like this. Last weekend, Company of Thieves filmed their second video under Wind-Up Records, this time for their song “Pressure,” which also happens to be my favorite track off of their CD Ordinary Riches. I got wind that they were doing this a few days before the shoot, and after a few emails and the help of a friend, I was cleared to shoot some behind-the-scenes photos.

Warning: Photo-heavy set. I was shooting for around 18 hours, so I made this as concise as possible, but I wanted to give people the full experience of the shoot! (more…)
