ACME Brand Studio is a creative collaboration between Shannon Hallare , Sean Brunson and Tim Fisher who worked together for years and decided to venture out to start a company that shared their passion for branding and for life. Their goal is to connect with their clients and with each other. To pursue the work they love doing and to have the freedom to enjoy life and the work they create. Basically, The New American Dream!

When Sean asked me to take the corporate photos for the ACME team, he kept referring to the photos I’ve done for the Traveling One show. They didn’t want to do anything corporate or traditional . When he said “do whatever you want, we trust you” …well, like they said in Jerry Maguire, “you had me at hello”

We spent a couple of hours in the Orlando Downtown industrial areas. We talk, joked around and look for cool locations to take pictures at. I wanted to capture them as organically as possible. To let them interact in a as much of an uncontrolled setting possible trying to reflect the vibe of their company vision.
We grab a few  beers afterwards and talked for a couple of hours. I was inspired by; Their vision for their business as a unit and as a sum of its parts. Their personal journeys that played a roll in their venture and coming together. The mix of talents that complemented each other. They seems as the perfect fit for each other.

You can feel a youthful like energy around them and I am glad to partake on it somehow.

Part of their mission statement…
“ACME stands for innovation, creativity, fun and most importantly, honesty. We love art and its power in helping to establish own-able and unique positions that separate brands from their competition. Brands need heroes, champions. We accept.”

    Big, big thanks Gian! Once again I’m blown away with your mad skills. You are the man. Looking forward to rocking it with you again soon. Next time with better talent :-)

Since the middle of last year I have been shooting more non-wedding related photography and I have found it quite inspirational and creative.
I also love photographing young people, the teen spirit its pure and full of energy which I find quite contagious. I known Diana and her mother for a while now. I met them at a wedding I did almost 3 years ago, long before I ever dreamt to do photography full time.

They were also one of the first who believe in my work and invested in it as well. Since then I have photographed Diana several times including a Photographers Workshop when I was still doing the Compose Light Shoot (CLS) Workshop Series for beginner photographers.

I have a few more senior, boudoir and family sessions booked for this year and I am really excited to do something inspiring, creative and hopefully different that your everyday…
so, here is one!
Cheerio! (because Cheers is just too formal for my goofy ass :)

Is not often I say yes to doing a head shot for anyone. I am just not comfortable enough doing one. The simplest thing just seems like the hardest, torture.
But when Susana contact me to ask me that she was looking to get a head shot of herself to use on her profile for a class that she will be teaching online. (Although I did know Susana I did not realized it for the first couple of emails and our first conversation on the phone till almost the end of it. YES! I am really a blond on the inside) But anyway, when we first talked she said all the right things I like to hear. So I was excited to do a head shot for her.
Its nice when someone seeks out your particular skills as an artists, specially since she told me that it was between myself and a couple of others, and that she decided I was what she was looking for. I had a great time and it was super fun working with her. When even came out of it with an inside joke on how to get the serious look, which turned out to be a great way to get her to laugh as well.
Susana is a super talented designer and also a photographer aficionado (lucky me). Check out her kick ass work here
I hope she can find the one that will work best for her purpose but here are a few of my favs.
I am starting to show less images per post. Its hard picking them but I am loving doing it already.
