A few months ago I did some product and team photography for the guys who created BoXZY - an all-in-one maker's dream machine - a mill, a laser cutter/engraver, and a 3D printer, all in one device. Well, it turns out that their Kickstarter campaign kicked butt and they raised enough money to put this amazing machine into production. Way to go!
Most of the work that I post on this blog has to do with either Bar/Bat mitzvahs or weddings, with occasional portrait session mixed in. Few people know that a decent chunk of my photography business comes from commercial photoshoots. One of the drawbacks of commercial photoshoots is that most of the time I cannot share my work due to intellectual property issues, privacy issues, or NDAs that my clients ask me to sign. Much of my commercial work is in the area of medical devices and medical education, where IP and privacy are critically important to my clients. This photoshoot was different - I was asked to do a product/team shoot for BoXZY - a fabrication device that allows you to mill, 3D print, and laser etch/cut.

Last night I gave this presentation to an amazing group of Pittsburgh photographers at the Pittsburgh Pictage User Group (PUG). I am a huge geek and found a great niche for myself and my business - combining photography with engineering and becoming a cross between a photographer and a mad scientist. I build things because I can, because it is interesting and because some of what I build is actually useful to my clients. And because in my spare time I am Batman. Don't tell anyone:)
