Twenty Seven and a Half Photography has been working in photography since 2000. Based in Chicago, Twenty Seven and a Half has a unique, documentary eye for its photo shoots. Our sets are sparse and minimally lit; we prefer to shoot in natural light whenever is humanly possible. We favor an unusual style of shooting both hyper close ups and master shots of our models on set.
We've shot several national magazine covers, worked with celebrities ranging from Billy Bob Thornton to Charlize Theron to Shia Labeouf and have shot several winners of America's Next Top Model, several Playmates and a handful of different NBA players. Earlier this year, our work was featured in GQ.
What we do aspire to do is to capture a moment of life on film (in pixel). If director Robert Altman was alive and shooting photographs, he'd be doing so in the same style that we use. Of late, we've been shooting more cinematic style photos; photos that have an advertising or fashion purpose but that also look fantastic hanging framed on a wall.
The above is a link to a video we cut together of a trip to the Cayman Islands that we took earlier this year to shoot several different products with Amber Burk, a delightful model from Rockford, Illinois (http://www.modelmayhem.com/2007713
). It truly highlights the delightful locations, great images and wondrous craziness associated with shooting in foreign lands.
