GINKO LEAVES

GINKO

Ginko leaves in the November light. Gotta love it. Ginkos have been around for quite awhile, about 270 million years or so (give or take a few days).  They are pretty unassuming until autumn when their leaves turn and they create carpets of yellow on the ground.   Some folks enjoy it as a tea or a supplement. I just like to see it.

THE CHEF

OWN IT

While shooting some food photos for a local restaurant I was asked if I could get a headshot of the chef. (Of course I could!) From the moment I stepped into the kitchen I could tell who was in charge of it. She owned it. No arrogance, no belligerence, just warm, friendly, supreme confidence.

TODD STONE BY BROKAW PHOTOGRAPHY

DO YOU JOURNAL?

I photographed artist, Todd Stone as part of a photo project about the Artists of the Gallows Run.  We talked about journals. Todd is a well known New York artist, www.toddstone.com.  Todd witnessed, first hand, the destruction of the Twin Towers and rendered it in paintings.  Over the past 16 years he has been witnessing and painting the resurrection. Todd journals.  It settles his mind and evokes new thoughts and ideas. Journalling is right up there with mindful meditation as a […]

COLOR

COLOR?

The world is full of color.  But sometimes we may want to look at it in black and white. Does it work? The perennial favorite for color watching is fall foliage.  It doesn’t last long.  A couple of weeks.  I wondered if I could create a black and white image of foliage with snap and interest.  It didn’t work.  Black and white leaves? (Am I nuts?)

VINCE PAPALE - PASSION

PASSION

Vince Papale “walked on” to the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1970s and made history.  An unknown 30 year old guy from the neighborhood who never played football decided to try out and became an NFL legend.  Disney even made a movie about him called Invincible. Vince’s football days are behind him and now he travels the country giving talks and motivating everyone from corporate executives to high school athletes. Vince’s story is impressive, for sure, but as I photographed him during […]

BROKAW PHOTOGRAPHY-FOOD TRUCK EVENT_5

FOOD TRUCK FUN

Like many companies, Promius Pharma annually convenes its people from around the country to bring them together as a team and enhance their focus on the company mission.  And of course the first night is a time for settling in and getting off to a good start with a social event.  This year Promius met at the Crown Plaza in Princeton and decided it would be fun to have food trucks cater the party. I’ve photographed a lot of corporate […]

COLD BREW

COLD BREW

Really cold brew at BioStorage, part of a facility at Rutgers University where they keep stuff on ice (not beer, though). I’ve photographed a number of sites specializing in cryogenic storage and it’s pretty amazing to see how technology enables us to seriously cool things down and essentially stop the aging process. Funny, though, when it gets really cold, I certainly don’t feel my aging process slowing down. www.BrokawPhotography.com

TREATMENT PLANT - BILL BROKAW

INDUSTRIAL GRAPHICS

I don’t often think of the visual graphic appeal of sewage treatment plants. Actually, I don’t really think of sewage treatment very often, but recently, when on assignment photographing this facility I couldn’t help but notice its visual elegance. Everything at a treatment plant is designed for a purpose and within this design is a kind of graphic beauty. I always enjoy photographing engineered structures. Especially when the light is awesome.  Ideally, it works as well as it looks. www.BrokawPhotography.com
