     Last month I attended the Paradigm Symposium in St. Paul, MN.  From scientists to archeologists to Egyptologists to geologists to paranormal researchers, there was no shortage of amazing speakers at this event. Not only did I learn things such as new ground-breaking evidence about when Ancient Egypt’s Sphinx was built, I also learned about the mysterious race of Nephilim written about in the Book of Enoch.  I even heard a jaw-dropping TOE (Theory of Everything) merging science, spirituality and the supernatural into one cohesive hypothesis.  Yes, these were all speakers at the top of their field. 

     In between these wonderful presentations, we would try to talk further with the speakers and get to know them on a more personal level.  Thankfully, the speakers were all very accessible to everyone at the Symposium.  Although I wasn’t there as a photographer, I was struck by not only the subject matter of what was being said by one particular speaker, but also the light that was hitting him.  This was Thomas Fusco.  After he finished talking to us about parts of his book, Behind The Cosmic Veil, I asked if I could grab a quick shot of him.  Thankfully, he allowed me to get up close and personal for the shot, and, after about three frames, this is what I got:

The Year with No Snow

     In a year with almost NO SNOW (2011-2012), selling snowmobile clothing was a difficult task.  As with most seasonal merchandise, the product is shot months before the time arrives for them to hit the market.  Last year was a tough one for anyone in the WINTER INDUSTRY.
     With Castle, we will shoot this year what will come out next year.  This allows us to shoot in the appropriate weather for the clothing, while not having to rush the process for post production, printing and distribution.  However, last year's snowfall was almost non-existent.  It seemed like there was never a time that it snowed enough or lasted long enough to get our shooting in.  This was a problem but also a great opportunity.  We had no choice but to switch gears and come up with something else.  So we left the trails and hit the streets, alleys and abandoned buildings to bring the 2013 line out to the public.
