We just found out that we have been chosen as a contender in the Hey, Hot Shot! international photography competition.  The good folks at Hey, Hot Shot! just posted a really nice blog post about Ryan’s latest personal project “Dume Gloom”.

We have been fans of Jen Bekman’s projects for a while now, and purchased more than a few pieces of art from her various galleries, so it is an honor to be a contender in Hey, Hot Shot!



We had a blast shooting a new campaign for Sseko Designs, a really cool company with a cause to help educate women in Uganda.  Check out their site for more information and how to buy.

With an awesome crew we trekked out to a dry lake bed and battled the elements for the perfect shot.  (Actually, we lucked out and had the perfect amount of clouds and breeze, so it wasn’t really THAT hard.)  Special kudos goes to our good friend Meagan Judkins who produced, art directed and styled, with the help of these amazing people:

Styling & Production: Samantha Silvers
Style Assistant: Naz Nowtash
Makeup: Karina Moore
Hair: Anton David

Thanks to everyone involved for making it an awesome shoot!  We will post a gallery soon but for now here’s a little behind the scenes action…

We would like to give a special thanks to Barbara Streisand for the awesome fireworks display on our neighborhood beach in Little Dume.  Babs, we gotta hand it to you, you really went above and beyond for the little people.  The fog rolled out just in time and we had an amazing day full of champagne, swimming, paddleboarding, BBQ’ing, and of course, a schmorgesborg of cameras.

Check out our photo gallery and a time lapse video of the festivities, enjoy!
