Not much to say, except...

I updated danlubbers.com under galleries:
Climbing | Lifestyle | Portraits

but whatever, you should go here instead:
I've been following this blog for a couple months now and
it's the most hilarious shit on the internet right now.


It's a site where this person tells cute animals what's what!

You will not be disappointed and if you are, you need to go figure out
the moment in time when you lost your sense of humor and retrieve it.

Concave Days, Little River Canyon, AL

Shooting last week with Joe and Colette was a great experience. They are two of the most down to earth climbers I've worked with. Probably because our personalities meshed well together. Hanging with them reminded me of most of the people that I had grown up with. Even though I haven't known them that long, it seems as though our souls had known each other in a previous life.

Anyway, here are a few outtake images.
I will update danlubbers.com soon with recent images.

Colette McInerney
Joey Kinder

and some humor...

Heading out to get some lunch and then off to Nash-vegas, TN.

Past 5 days in the Southeast

I arrived in Chattanooga last friday in a hopes that weather would be descent. I'm down here on a trip to shoot with Pro-athlete Joey Kinder who recently made the second ascent of a route called Southern Comfort 5.14a.
Saturdays weather was overcast, rainy with 100% humidity. Knowing that I would not be able to shoot or climb myself, I ended up heading over to the Chattanooga Aquarium which, ended up being very interesting.

Rain has thwarted our plans to shoot and over the weekend I made the journey to Alabama to hang out and finish up an interview with my friend Adam Henry. Adam is a straight up real dude, feeds no bullshit and has interesting stories which people will be able to read once it goes to print. The interview will in the distant future be printed in Climbing Magazine as a Perspective piece.

It is now wednesday and I'm seeing the sun for the first time since early friday morning. Joey is very psyched to go shoot on this route and hopefully the weather will abide for the next couple days. I think it's awesome the positive energy that Joey seems to feed me as we talk over the phone and I can't wait to see how this energy fuels both of us for the next few days.

Studio Sessions | Bonnie Billy & the Picket Line

I had the pleasure of attending Bonnie Billy & the Picket Line in the studio at InRoomOne
this past week (Dec.30th, 2008).

The light was very low to accompany the aesthetic overtones of the music.
However for a photographer, low light is our biggest enemy. Not wanting to use flashes to distract the group, take away from the mellow mood or have the microphones pickup the sound of the flash pops, I ended up shooting with my
ISO blown out to 3200.

The high ISO ended up working into my favor for some of the images, because the grain adds a bit of it's own pleasure into each shot.
