We got to work this event that Key Events put on for Visit Denmark and SAS Airlines and you can see our photography team at work shooting Polaroids and such in this video. I recently made my first trip to Denmark and Copenhagen (and Roskilde) and flew SAS to Copenhagen and had a wonderful time. [...]
As you probably know if you’ve followed our agency or this blog, we love instant photography and have been happy to promote it to our clients as well often shooting vintage Polaroid cameras with Impossible Project film. Well we lucked out and got a Christmas/Holiday present from the Impossible Project folks of a Polaroid Close-Up [...]
Most beer lovers recognize Anchor Steam as the quintessential and/or original S.F. beer brand. But not everyone knows they can book a a tour (up to two months advance notice often required) to see the brewery and learn how their world-class beer is made. Anchor has also been one of my favorite clients over the past few [...]
break from running for a self portrait on camera phone Part of my new year’s resolution was to run a marathon this year and I am excited to share with everyone that I am participating in the Big Sur marathon this April. To help me stay motivate and do something positive while training for the [...]
In case you hadn’t noticed that the city might be a bit more tipsy than usual, that’s because it’s San Francisco Beer Week! We covered the Opening Night gala on Friday which has grown tremendously over the years and during the week there are a ridiculous number of events going on. There’s probably a lot [...]
Colin Kaepernick has got all the hype right now and we recall photographing him the first time and how chill and down to earth he was. In October of 2011 at the 49ers facility in Santa Clara, I spoke with him about what it felt like to be in the NFL and a 49er. He was [...]
The Giants won the World Series for the second time in three years and we went to the parade and rally again yesterday! It was so fun and we let folks from the studio take off to check it out if they wanted since so many of us here are Giants fans. I was particularly [...]
Well, the 2012 baseball season is over and the crew at Orange was super excited to see our San Francisco Giants win the World Series for the second time in three years. It was also awesome that one of the main hashtags for the postseason was #OrangeOctober, which of course, we loved! During the course [...]
On a recent trip to photograph up in Canada, we had a chance to stop by and check out Steam Whistle Brewing in Toronto since it’s located just behind the Convention Center and Intercontinental Hotel, where we stayed. The brewery is where Steam Whistle is brewed and they only make that one beer, which [...]
We love Bay to Breakers and since our studio moved off the race path we hadn’t done a photo booth or photostation like we had in the past so this year we had access to a perfect street spot on Hayes Hill where we set up an impromptu photo booth and enjoyed our Sunday morning. [...]
On my most recent trip to Miami, I had the fortune to actually get out of South Beach (where I typically am for shoots) and head into Miami proper, this time checking out the Wynwood Arts District. This area has undergone a renaissance of late, and anyone who’s been to Art Basel Miami has no [...]
Last week was the Noise Pop Festival where there were a ton of great bands in town. Shooting shows and bands live is really fun since there’s usually a lot of emotion and passion, which makes it easier to capture interesting photos. Since we were shooting for the festival we got to see a great [...]
This week we celebrate the birthday of our lovely Orange productionista, Vicki! Join us in wishing this woman of many talents- both behind and in front of the lens-the happiest of birthdays and many more to come!!
Last Saturday, one of Orange’s main men behind the lens, Mr. Gene X Hwang, added one more candle to his cake! Happy birthday, Gene— here’s to many more to come!
Another year! Happy birthday to our (totally un-psycho killer) sales man.
Our awesome studio manager Natalie, aka “mama bear” celebrated her birthday this weekend! Vicki surprised her with a delicious red velvet cake and sparkly candles during our last team meeting…
So a while back we shot an opening for the Asian Law Caucus’ new digs on Columbus. It was a nice affair and I like the work they do which I detailed in a previous blog entry. Anyhow, with the Supervisors here in San Francisco deliberating over who the interim mayor will be, it [...]
I had a bunch of lighting gear at home after a big shoot so i put it to good use on halloween. My wife did a spectacular job with the make up for all the kids and our oldest daughter even won best costume contest.
I am privy to a lot of fantastic city views as someone who gets to shoot in a variety of venues. And what a beautiful city we live in! I’m so lucky to live here. These night exposures were taken on some recent shoots. Some exposures are as long as 30 seconds, so obviously a [...]
I’ve always loved the Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera and finally found one in great condition on eBay so bidded on it and won. I had been saving some Impossible Project Fade to Black Film 10/09 film just to use with this and did a personal project with it to see how it’d turn out. Of course [...]
It’s that time of year again, time for the annual team offsite! The Orange Team headed for the lanes this year, living it up at Sea Bowl in beautiful Pacifica. But our first stop: the timeless and delicious In-N-Out to give us the strength to heave those balls with destructive force (cue pins falling down [...]
I have this camera app, Hipstamatic, on my phone that filters everything through its lens to create Holga effects and make the world look dreamy. It’s nice when I don’t feel like lugging my DSLR plus it does all the post-processing for you. Here are some snapshots from my week in Mexico City –glimpses of [...]
I don’t know about you guys – but I have some major World Cup fever. Games are full of drama, culture, crazy skills (and pretty fútbol players) – it’s all so captivating. Thanks to SF Recreation and Parks and friends, you can watch the games in Civic Center Plaza. Stop by and watch a game [...]
