Allison and I had the privilege of shooting the new images for Jeremy Horn's upcoming CD "The Sound of the Broken". From this shoot we'll create his new album art and all the cool promotional pieces that travel with Jeremy and the guys. It was a lot of fun to have total creative freedom and shoot images that convey the feel of Jeremy's music. Jeremy is an extremely talented artist and the Worship Leader at our church - Christ the Rock. 

Thanks - Jeremy, Mike and Scott! 

First up is a video of the shoot that Jeremy's buddy Kevin (or "Justin" as Allison likes to call him) shot using my Canon SD 870. It is about 9 minutes long. One of the best parts of the video is the last minute. Reflector Boy is not your calling Jeremy - you might want to keep your day job...

J + A :)

Here are few of the favorites from the shoot.

The video was funny (you can not tell me they do not have thick southern accents.LOL)
I reeeeallly loooooooove the second last one, the one with the lyrics behind him, and the one shot through the greenery... well done guys!

Chanel Parrott (09-25-2008 at 7:18am):

Love these.....the lyrics on is awesome but the one of the below it is really cool as well. Nice lighting, nice location...really cool! Can't wait to see the finished product!


Kay (09-25-2008 at 8:25am):

I talked with Jeremy and we were wondering if you guys could photoshop me into the background with a tambourine or maybe some bongos.

Denise Horn (09-25-2008 at 9:15am):

My friends are ridiculously talented. It's pretty sick actually. Jeff and Allison- I'm in awe.

Lisa Barbour (09-25-2008 at 9:31am):

Really cool shots...it looks great! Can't wait to see how you use these. You guys are really talented!

Hannah Cole (09-26-2008 at 11:18am):

These are AMAZING!!!!! i tried to pick my favorite... but there is a tie between five of them.
So i just found out that you go to Christ the Rock! I do too. :) I can't wait to run into you!
...also, that video was hilarious. i think my favorite is when Kevin said "ugh what is this thing?!"... and then proceeded to touch it. ha I love that guy.

Sarah (09-30-2008 at 9:22am):

I love the pics, but seeing the video of the shoot was so fun! it really adds a whole new dimension for us "non-photogs" and lets us see what goes on behind those great finished products! I already knew you had a crazy ARP crew, but throw Jeremy's bunch in there and I'll bet that was one fun shoot! Thanks for that inside look!

Hannah Taylor (04-02-2010 at 5:26am):

Thanks for the video too! The images are great! I really like how you used that light.

Thank you PPA for asking me to be a part of the Webinar on blogging. It was very interesting and I appreciate you guys asking me to be a part of it. Carrie thank you for the PowerPoint and being so gracious under pressure. The tech details at the beginning were not an issue because of your ability to handle the pressure. 

If anyone has any further questions regarding what I covered please feel free to contact me and I will elaborate further.

Here are some of the stats from our blog. It's interesting to see this background info.

Oh my goodness!! We just received the PPA Media Kit in the mail and we have 5 IMAGES in it!!!! And 2 of them are on the cover! WOW - what an honor. This kit will go out to any vendor interested in advertising in PPA magazine.

We also have a short write-up in the current issue called A "grown-up" business. It talks about our involvement with PPA's Studio Management Services and how important it is to know what's going on with the numbers in your business. We're so thankful for the crew at PPA - you guys are awesome!

I thought it would be interesting to post an updated tunes list (old list). With 7 people running around the studio you get a wide sampling of different music. This is a great little free application, it is very similar to Pandora it lets you create your own playlist of favorites. Here are a few of our favorites. I hope you enjoy!

Looks like it's better than Pandora if it actually lets you listen to what you want as opposed to what 'sounds like it'. Great find!
