Not your average everyday photography.

Pittsburgh Zombies @ ScareHouse

Pittsburgh’s own ScareHouse is gearing up for their upcoming haunt season and unveiled  a new attraction. If you know anything about me you know that I LOVE ZOMBIES!!! And I can’t wait to experience Pittsburgh Zombies , although the steampunk part of me is sad that Rampage won’t be there this year (I wanted to turn it into my house). But I digress…  I had the honor of working on the teaser trailer for the new attraction and wanted to share!

A little over a month ago creative director/co-owner of ScareHouse, Scott Simmons, contacted me and asked if I’d be willing to take on a short notice project. Of course I jumped at the opportunity. The mission was to go around the city and take “vacant lot” type photos of the city. I thought it would be super easy because I was heading out early as hell on Superbowl Sunday and assumed that the streets would be bare! I had never been so wrong. I started out in Southside which was probably the worst crowd-wise. At 8 AM there were lines of people staking out whatever bar it was that they’d wanted to saddle up to for the game. This honestly shocked me. But i put my nose to the grindstone and tried my best to get the right kind of photos for this project. After Southside, I made my way through the city going to Station Square, Downtown, Northside, and the Strip District. So after several hours of walking, numerous numb body parts, and several cups of coffee to keep warm, it was finally time to call it a wrap.

These are the (original unedited) shots that were chosen for the project:

Now I will be the first to admit there is nothing special about these photos, BUT with the talent of graphic designer Steven Benton and video editing skills of Glenn Syska it turned into this wonderful piece!

I can’t wait!!!
