Pecci Tests New Gear from LUMO PRO

Lumopro_LP-180_b640.jpg

In the current state of the photography business it is getting harder and harder to get paid the fair amount for a gig. The only way I can survive is by keeping my overhead down. That means finding a more affordable lighting solution.

Both Gina and I shot non-stop for at least 5 hours and the Lumo’s performed perfectly on one set of battieries. Pretty awesome for a $200 speedlight and a great addition to my kit!

McFarland & Pecci join OneDayInBoston.org Team.

Recently Ian  was asked to join the One Day on Earth (see the trailer here) team in working on a new film project called On Day In Your City. The project's goal is to promote a campaign platform that inspires urbanites to tell stories that inform a more sustainable future in their cities.  On April 26th, 2014 hundreds of filmmakers, non-profit organizations, and inspired citizens will document stories and investigate 10 questions for the future of their city as part of a multi-city participatory media-creation event. The resulting media will be showcased in an interactive geo-tagged archive and a TV series on the future of the American city.  In addition, local media partners will showcase the most powerful and inspiring videos created during the one-day filmmaking event.   Ian will be working with the One Day In Boston team, so if you are interested in participating in this project, please reach out to me directly and us and we will help you get started.   If you're interested in more info regarding the project in one of the 10 other cities across the country go to OneDayInYourCity.org and sign up.

"In the Hunt" gets special Valentine's Day release from Ball and Buck

Check out Ball and Buck's special Valentine's Day release of McFarland & Pecci's "In the Hunt."

Directed by award-winning director and photographer Mike Pecci, “In the Hunt” plays with expectations, showing how a real man who exemplifies the Ball and Buck lifestyle out in the field might find himself hunted elsewhere.

“In the Hunt” stars Jesse Leach, lead singer of American metalcore band Killswitch Engage, and Maxim model/designer Minji Cho. It was inspired in part by William Claxton’s iconic photograph of Steve McQueen eating, and in part by hunting poetry.

Choppahead - Network pitch shoot.

Recently we were hired by a production company in LA to produce, direct and edit a short network pitch on Choppahead Kustom Cycles in New Bedford, MA. So over this past weekend Ian and our DP Jarvis packed up our new IKAN LED lights, a Canon 5D package and some audio gear and headed down to the south shore to hang with the guys. We spend the day filming interviews as well as shooting them do what they do best which is building amazing bikes. We are looking forward to getting into the edit suite to cut this little piece together.

Al Jourgensen / Ministry El Paso, TX Bar Safari Trip Photos

Back in November Ian was invited down to El Paso, TX  by Al Jorgensen (Ministry) and his wonderful wife Angie  to stay with them at their ranch and discuss a potential future project.  After their meeting Al took Ian, their mutual buddy Jon Wiederhorn (writer of his book) and his body guard on a insane dive bar safari that lasted till around 4am this morning and was topped off by sitting in his living room listening to a bunch of his unreleased material till sunrise.  Al's photographer Omar Mena came out with us and managed to take some really cool photographs (galley below).  We are very excited to potentially work with him.
