Ian Spanier: The Two-Minute Shoot

  The Two-Minute Shoot" is something I came up with on assignment for Muscle & Fitness magazine shooting with the Florida Gators football team a few years ago. The concept of the shoot was to do a day-in-the-life of the National Championship-winning team as they trained inside and outside their Gainesville, Florida facility. In a situation like this, I would need to have a consistent look inside and outside as much as possible.

(We had to use an air canon rather than a Rosco smoker because Vasquez Rocks does not allow smoke machines. It's a bit of an outdated rule because the new...

Liam Doran: Trying His Hand at Product Photography

This just goes to show what you can achieve when you shoot with good equipment. Pro Showcase photographer Liam Doran doesn't spend a ton of time shooting products in the studio - he's made a name for himself as a first-rate outdoor sports and lifestyle photographer - but that doesn't mean he can't switch gears when he has to. "In today's ultra-competitive market, you never want to turn work down. I think it's crucial to be at least literate in all aspects of photography so that when 'atypical' work does come your way, you'...
