Aloha all! Apologies for not posting sooner. Work has been steady with interesting gigs !
Sharing some behind the scenes images from a project shot in Kyoto, Japan. Strict contract requirements prevent me from sharing the ‘take’ but more announcements will come in 2015.  I’ve also started a Instagram account, please check it out @corypix @corypix @corypix for recent photographic meanderings.

Whirlwind of a trip shuttling photography gear much like a snail carrying the house on the back. Complete with 3 Nikon bodies, lenses and a full location lighting kit that was really worked as the most important tenet is ‘quality light’

Kyoto is an amazing city. Lots of history and amazing views. Below a torii or gate at one of the many gate entrances to the Royal Palace in Kyoto. Much of Kyoto has been photographed. The extreme challenge is making unique images of a well photographed city, story telling visually and giving the viewer a ‘cory Lum’ view of Kyoto.
