moving to Tumblr

I'm going to be posting bloggy content much more frequently onto my Tumblr site. I'm not sure how long I'll keep this Blogger page going as well.

My Tumblr site is a nice mix of current shoots, portfolio/video work, behind the scenes stuff, as well as a photo diary of sorts. It's less formal and random. There's a lot of content up and running already.

Please visit that site, bookmark it, feed it, follow it, etc.

Aquinas Library at Night

I came across this architectural photo I shot back in 2006 for Aquinas College…their library looks fantastic at night.

Behind the Scenes-Lux Land

Lux Land Shoot - Behind the Scenes from Brian Kelly Films on Vimeo.

A quick (and raw) video clip of part of my shoot with Lux Land last summer for her new album. If you haven’t ever heard her music, do yourself a favor and pick up her latest album “Sweet Suspension."

This portion of the shoot with Lux was located in a (mosquito infested) nature reserve at Calvin College. Just to the left of where we were shooting in this video was a small patch of trees where the cover shot to the album was taken.

Here's the photo we were working on in the video:
