Magazine Work | Photo Reportage

Retired VFW Hall | Photo Reportage

Hey there everyone. Travis Duncan here. Just wanted to share a fun project that I created with a great friend and amazing chef Johnny Graham. It was so much fun getting to explore this old VFW property that Johnny purchased and hired me to come in and document "as-is". It was a real creative exploration and I love the materials we ended up creating. The first image below is quite possibly, my favorite portrait I've EVER done of Mr. Johnny Graham. Complete with the judge's gavel in hand. Check out the texture and mood in all of these rooms and spaces.

The unbelievably cool atmosphere in this old building is something to see and feel. I'm sure the stories and conversations that unfolded in this place over the decades would be amazing to hear. If only walls could talk. 

If you like what you see, or even if you don't ... drop me a line in the comment section below! I would love to hear from you!

A Look At Fashion & Beauty Photography

Fashion & Beauty | Commercial Photographer 

Here's a look at some recent fashion and beauty work I did this week. A bit outside of my wheelhouse, but I still had a good time making the work, and feel like we created something amazing. Eden, my subject, was wonderful to work with and I feel like we'll be collaborating a lot more down the road. Thanks for reading, and please stop back or bookmark this page to stay up to date on the new work that we are creating from week to week! - td

Editorial Cover Work

Editorial Work | Garden Center Magazine Cover

Here's a peek at some recent editorial work I took onboard for Garden Center Magazine based out of Valley View Ohio. Just south of Cleveland. Under the amazing and wonderful Stephanie Antal, our art director over at the Garden Center Magazine, I believe we came away with some really nice imagery and a great story on the Longfellow's Garden Center. Alice Longfellow, our subject, and owner of Longfellow's along with her husband Bob could not have been more pleasant to work with. I shot a lot of "shallow depth of field" type images which is very unusual for me, but I'm happy with the result and most importantly the magazine is happy as well.

Construction Job Site | Architectural Photography

CONSTRUCTION PHOTOGRAPHY | SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING CAMPAIGN

Hey guys, thanks for stopping by. Today, I just wanted to post a quick entry to show another angle, or perhaps a better description ... "another side" of our photo work. Typically I tend to show our more highly produced and polished imagery, used mainly in advertising ... so this is nice departure from that work.

For this project - I was commissioned to shoot a series of images, documenting a single commercial hospital construction site. The image licensing was primarily for a social media campaign to promote many of the building materials used on the project.  Using a small 3 man crew, we moved throughout the job site creating a nice variety of aerial photos, close up details of the laborers, and pulled back shots to help illustrate the size and scope of the job.  

Enjoy a look at the photos, hit me up in the comments if you have questions ... and thanks for reading!

Stone Hill Winery | Lifestyle Ad Shoot

ADVERTISING PHOTOGRAPHY | LIFESTYLE | MISSOURI WINES

Thought it might be fun to pull together a few images from a past advertising project I shot with Stone Hill Winery. The shoot took place over two days and consisted mainly of harvest photos, but also touching on the lifestyle "sociability" aspect of wine. It was a fun project, and I learned quite a bit about the process. 

Stone Hill is actually Missouri's oldest, and most awarded winery in the state and they have an absolutely beautiful winery that you've got to see! Well known for the very tasty Norton grape (which you can see in the photos below) and also here's a bit of trivia for ya ... the Norton happens to be Missouri's state grape. Yeah, I didn't know Missouri had a state grape either!

So anyway, if you ever make it to Hermann Missouri, do yourself a favor and stop by for a tasting and tour. Check out more of their great Missouri Wines at: http://stonehillwinery.com/ and also if you're interested in learning more about some of the oldest wine companies in the world, do yourself a favor and check out: https://www.wineturtle.com/oldest-wine-companies/ for some great information! - thanks for reading! -td

Monster Energy | Product Shoot

PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY | LOCA MOCA DRINK

Here's one of my latest product shots with Monster Energy.

Since I'm such a coffee junkie I was eager to take this one on, and I felt there was no better way to show off this product than having a can of Java Monster Loca Moca exploding out of a large pile of coffee beans. I think we nailed it with this one.

As a commercial studio, we take in a variety of different types of projects each month which tends to keep life more interesting for me & the crew. But of all the different types of projects that come across my desk, I have to say that my favorite work always revolves around Product Photography of some kind! 

Why product photography you ask?

Great question. Shooting products and making them look as interesting as possible, creates endless challenges for us on the set. (and yes, I love a good challenge) The bottom line is, I love photographing products because it tends to be on of the most challenging and rewarding disciplines to work in. If done well, an inanimate object can inspire emotion from the viewer in the same way than a well executed portrait might.

EDITORIAL ASSIGNMENT | MAGAZINE PHOTOGRAPHY

I do a fair amount of magazine work which I enjoy immensely.  Sometimes when an art director or photo editor calls, they might have very specific direction for me, while other times it's pretty much a wide open canvas. When I go into a situation where I have creative license with respect to making the picture, I will look for scenarios that "tell" as much of the story as possible without having to use words. I very seldom know specifically what the piece is going to say, so as a general rule I will try to imagine the image running with no copy. This helps me a great deal when trying to decide on a location, props, gesture etc ... Below is an example of layering story elements into the frame without being excessively overt. It's an absolute favorite of mine. There are so many layers to this photograph, it just may be my favorite portrait from 2016. -td

OG Anunoby | Indiana Hoosier

MAGAZINE PHOTOGRAPHY | SPORTS PORTRAIT

Editorial portrait photography has got to be one of my favorite disciplines. Especially when I get to work with a top notch talent like  OG Anunoby. I've been fortunate enough to work with OG a few times now, and he's just an amazing guy. If you're not a sports fan I'll give you a quick run-down. OG plays college basketball for the Indiana Hoosiers. He's just a Sophomore this year, but he's already making tremendous strides and contributions for his team in the NCAA. OG is a reported 6'8, 235 pounds with a 7'6 wingspan! To help frame that little nugget of information, Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard and Giannis Antetokounmpo play in the NBA, and are considered extreme outliers for possessing 7'3 wingspans. Whether or not those numbers hold true, OG is indeed a true physical specimen to behold. I'm glad to call OG a friend, and I am beyond excited to see what the future holds for this young superstar.
