I shot this show on Palomino Island. I lost my wallet, and got really sunburnt. Also, I had fun. If you find my wallet please mail it to me.

We managed to hit golden hour perfectly on both days of shooting. The snaps of me were taken by Thomas Welch. The rest are by me.

GS Weekend Part 2

2014-shotbyjake.com-2504

Here is the second installment of the images from my BMW adventure to Lake Placid and back from New York City. To give a little bit more context about the ride, Saturday we started off taking the Sawmill Parkway to it’s northern extreme before passing through Vermont, then jogging west parallel to the Canadian border until we arrived in Lake Placid NY. The weather for most of the day on Saturday was basically perfect until we started into the last 30 miles, climbing the canyon to Lake Placid. As we gained elevation, I could see where the cloud line was on the mountain. We ended the day riding in cold, wet and dark mountainous conditions.

When we woke up the next day, the clouds still hadn’t dispersed and there was still light precipitation. But as we wound our way through the Adironacks, the clouds gave way to more beautiful weather for the balance of the ride back to NYC. One of the highlights of the ride home¬†was a series of twisties along the Delaware River. We ended up going back and forth through that section 5 or 6 times.

GS Weekend Part 1

2014-shotbyjake.com-2616

Weekend before last, some friends of mine arranged to borrow some bikes from BMW and take a ride upstate. I was lucky enough to be included in the activities. We were all riding various iterations of the GS model. I had a 2014 R1200GS. This is probably the biggest motorcycle that I have ever ridden. For its size and weight, the bike is surprisingly fast and nimble. We left the island of Manhattan around noon on Saturday and rode just under 400 miles to Lake Placid. We left Lake Placid early Sunday AM and returned to NYC by a different and slightly longer route. We came back covered in insect carnage and bearing CF cards full of images from the adventure. I took a Canon 5d Mk III with a 50MM f 1/1.2L and the Fujifilm X100 S. Since I snapped so many photos over the two day ride, I’m going to break them up into a few different posts in chronological order.

Domino Sugar Factory (Part 2)

2014-shotbyjake.com-6068

Here are some more images from inside of the old Domino Sugar factory. In the previous post, I focused on the pieces associated with the art installation that opened last Saturday. In this post, I’m sharing photos of the actual structure, which for me was as interesting as the art exhibit that was contained therein.

Domino Sugar Factory (Part 1)

2014-shotbyjake.com-5898

I popped by the old Domino Sugar factory on Saturday to see the new Kara Walker installation. The Domino Sugar factory is slated to be razed in the coming months to make room for luxury condos. I was very excited to be able to check out the inside of this industrial icon. It was like stepping into a time capsule of old industrial Brooklyn. Oh yeah, and the art was pretty interesting. In this post, I’m including my images of the pieces placed by Walker. I’ll write a follow-up post which will focus more on the structure. Enjoy.

I had seen this woman’s work before on Tumblr uncredited. I was pretty happy last ween when Juxtapoz featured Noell S. Oszvald, and included some of the images that I seen an appreciated sans attribution. Her stuff is pretty amazing. She manipulates self portraits into the final image that you see. Extremely clever and ultra-creative.

Reconnected with some old friends over the weekend, and was able to meet two of their kids for the first time. It all happened at the Museum of Natural History. Here are some snaps from along the way.
