Happy 2012! It’s been wonderful to be back home in DC for a couple of days and I’ve finally had a chance to hit the iMac for some serious editing. I’ve got a great set of posts coming about various experiences in Australia and I’m going to start with my marketing shoot with Magic Marine. After lots of emailing back and forth with Carrie, the Amsterdam-based company’s marketing manager, about the shot list, the schedule, and the locations, it was awesome to work together in person with some of their sponsored athletes (or ‘teamriders’ as MM calls them) in Fremantle and Perth for the ISAF Worlds Championships in December.

Our shoot took place a few days before the regatta started, so the athletes were at peak fitness and had been training and testing gear for months. Carrie had lugged the newest line of Magic Marine apparel and gear from Europe in several giant bags, the multimedia/video guy, Bob of Eyeforce Video Production, had flown in from Holland, the sun was out, and the sailors were ready. My job was to cover a variety of different gear and athletes, all of which was shot at the same time video was shooting too. My shot list included action shots of the athletes training and racing in their gear on the water, headshots of selected athletes (serious, strongly side-lit, in black and white), product shots as possible around video, behind-the-scenes snapshots, etc). Without further ado, here’s an informal look into the shoot.

I’m really excited to see how Magic Marine‘s new video and marketing materials turn out over the next few weeks and months. Thanks to Carrie and Bob and all of the teamriders for making it a great shoot!

That’s right, here’s a real, live Dingo! If you’re a casual Seinfeld fan like me, you can’t help but smile and think of Elaine’s “maybe the dingo ate your baby” line when you look at his furry little (actually not that little) face. Since I haven’t been good about posting what I’ve been photographing over here, I thought I’d just give you a little peek and fill you in on what’s happening with us in Australia.




Andrew and Ian are on the water right now, racing in day 4 of their Star World Championship and final Olympic qualifier. They’ve had a bit of a tough event, standing in 16th overall (out of 41) as I write, and while there’s still a chance that they’ll finish well enough to qualify for the 2012 US Olympic team, it’s slim since two of Andrew’s US teammates have been sailing extremely well. One more day of racing on Friday will determine whether they make it into Saturday’s medal race, which is limited to the top 10. It’s not over ’til it’s over!

I’ve been keeping myself busy writing regatta updates for the Star Class website, spending each afternoon in the media center (with my very serious “Journalist” accreditation) tracking the racing, writing, then popping over to the boatpark to get a few interviews when the sailors hit the dock, and wrapping it up in the evening. It’s actually been really fun writing about something I’m so interested in. I’ve also been doing some shooting here and I’ve got some great blog posts on deck (likely for after the holidays), including…

– The Western Australia Art Museum in Perth

– My Fremantle Magic Marine marketing shoot and behind-the-scenes tidbits

– A photo essay about “Freo” (and hopefully an article)

– An assortment of images of Australian animals

– A collage of Instragram snapshots from our trip

My friend Nick jokingly suggested before we left for Australia that since water drains in the opposite direction, the stars in the sky are totally different, the temperatures get colder the farther south you go, and many other things are not the same in the southern hemisphere, I’d need to learn to shoot everything while holding my camera upside down. Can’t say that I’ve tried it successfully yet, but who knows, you may all need to flip your computer screens on their heads to view what I’ll be posting later!

In case I don’t get to write before we fly back to California just before Christmas…happy holidays to you and your family! xx J

Andrew and I spent a few days in the islands last weekend and got to do some amazing things with a great group of people we’ve met through boatracing. Some highlights included swimming with enormous wild sting rays on a remote sandbar, racing J22s, snorkeling over a beautiful reef, having an impromptu nighttime boat raft up, watching some amazing fireworks, eating lots of delicious meals, and trying out several of the tasty mudslide varieties (frothy, icey, coffee- and chocolate-infused drinks) from around the island. Here’s a little peek into our trip…

Tomorrow morning at 5am, Andrew and I are headed on Part I of our upcoming seven-week trip! First stop is in the Cayman Islands for an event with friends from my TP52 sailing team, Powerplay Racing, who hail from that beautiful part of the world. On Sunday we’re headed straight from there to San Diego, where we’ll spend a little time with Andrew’s family, watch some great America’s Cup World Series racing, and have a faux/early Thanksgiving before heading to Perth, Australia via LAX and Sydney. Phew.

We’ll be in Fremantle and Perth for basically the rest of the year as Andrew trains for and competes in the ISAF Sailing World Championships, which will be the final qualifier for the majority of US sailing teams vying for a spot to race in London in 2012. He’ll be posting lots of updates, so definitely check out his website here and his Twitter feed here. I’m also looking forward to a great shoot (over several days in Perth and Sydney) with a company that I’ve loved working with in the past. I’m so excited that after lots of planning and prep, it’s finally here! I’ll be posting updates, photos, and bits from along the way here and on Twitter, so please stay tuned.

Like many days, I spent today tethered to my computer: editing images, emailing clients, designing an album, fulfilling a print order, and so forth. As my eyeballs slowly turned to mush, it hit me, I need to stop. Thinking back to a great GQ article (Don’t Let Your Desk Kill You: A GQ Get-Off-Your-Ass Primer) that I read last night, I figured it was time to take a few steps. So out the door I went, onto a couple of paths through Rock Creek Park, right behind our apartment/office. I’m so glad I did. A little sun, some crunchy leaves, and few thousand steps were just what I needed. Then it was back to the computer and, somewhat ironically, to edit these images of my jaunt outdoors.

If you’ve never been to Eastern Market, DC’s oldest continually operating fresh foods market, I think it might be time. Badly damaged by fire in 2007, it’s now back in full swing. I hadn’t been until this weekend and there were so many highlights…funky jewelery, apple cider donuts made before your eyes, a musical saw and guitar-playing robot band, chicken feet, homemade knit and beaded doodads of every kind, chocolate ravioli and other delicious fresh pastas, adorable dogs cruising around, beautiful locally-grown veggies and fruit, and much more. It’s the kind of place where there’s something for everyone and good people watching for when you get tired. Enjoy!

Today Andrew and I are headed to the land of cheese and brats (also known as Wisconsin) to race in the Blue Chip Regatta at the Pewaukee Yacht Club. It’s going to be chilly, but it’ll be a blast racing e-scows with some really talented sailors who have lots of experience in the class. And we’re off…

I was rifling through some old travel pictures today and came across this one taken in St. Mark’s Square, Venice some years ago while I was studying abroad in Florence. Something about the two guys hanging out with a giant Gucci bag in the middle of pigeon pandemonium just made me smile.
