Washington DC Photography - DC Cool Ad Campaign

I am truly fortunate to have the opportunity to license images from my collection of Washington DC Photography for such a wide variety of print and electronic media.  What's Cool about this image is that is was actually included in my archive of DC Photography as an afterthought - plucked from my Washington DC Cherry Blossoms Gallery by an obviously talented and extremely savvy art director for use in the DC Cool Ad Campaign - to be reproduced as full page ads in various print publications including Food + Wine, Condé Nast Traveler, Essence, Smithsonian, The New Yorker, and city magazines in major feeder markets like New York, Philadelphia and Boston, as well as 9' displays around DC.  What's especially Cool for me is this was shot fiddling around with a LensBaby I had just bought and trying to figure out how to use.  If you're not familiar - a LensBaby is an inexpensive plastic lens that offers the ability for some pretty interesting blur effects.  I was a bit concerned at first with this image going 9' but it looked fantastic.

Northern Virginia Development and Economic Growth Stock Images

Tysons Galleria

I've been shooting a lot of images lately for several projects I am working on - providing stock images for various client's marketing needs regarding the economic growth and impending further development of Northern Virginia. In particular Tysons Corner, Merrifield, Rosslyn, and the introduction of the new Metro Silver Line - all geared towards promoting the reinvention of these areas via Smart Growth into sustainable urban centers - creating a more Mixed-Use Residential / Commercial pedestrian friendly environment.  It's a bit of a challenge to shoot and provide images for use of something that doesn't quite yet exist - but it's an ongoing effort - Here's a link to a Gallery of Images of what I've shot these past few weeks - Northern Virginia Economic Growth and Development
