Kimbra - shout out

Super spectacular hand model Kimbra Hickey taking questions at the Twilight party at Borders in NYC. Can't believe that I shot that cover four years ago, it is still one of my most popular images.

Go Kimbra, you PR machine!

Failing Up


Check out this month's issue of BusinessWeek SmallBiz, I shot the cover story. We traveled the U.S. and Canada photographing entrepreneurs that turned a business failure into a business success... turning lemons into lemonade. That was part of the assignment, work lemons into each shot and have it reflect each individuals story, personality or philosophy. Here are a few of the shots...

Here is my favorite, Josh and Jordan, two dot-commers that ain't scared of no lemons!


Eva, she fought for the life of her company and now her bowl runneth over... literally.


Roy, after a messy split with his former company he formed his own.


Andy, "morn the loss of a job and then move on."

12:30 AM in midtown Manhattan, CHEERS, SHOUTS, CAR HORNS...
Is it New Years Eve already? No, we just elected out next president. I have never experienced that kind of spontaneous reaction to a presidential election! Congratulations President Elect Obama.

Dirty Jobs!


I shot a campaign for Discovery Channel last month for the new season of Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe. Mike is the real deal, the guy on TV is the same guy in real life. This may have been his dirtiest job ever, just look at what we did to the man!


Now that the ad is out people have been asking questions about the shoot and as luck would have it Nick shot some video so you can have a little behind the scenes peak...

There is also a video on the discovery website of Mike getting dirty with the help of special effects artist Jane Choi, click the pic below...

Took a little vacation to Bermuda recently, here are some pics.
It's a beautiful place.... if you're into that whole pink sand and turquoise water kinda thing...






One weird thing, chickens. They're everywhere running free doing their chicken thing and looking delicious doing it.

 Stumbled upon a dairy farm while walking around. Bessie the cow, not so remarkable...

but check out Bessie's view from behind the fence, not bad.

love this house...

Breaking Dawn




The big secret is out, the cover of the latest and last novel in the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer is unveiled. This series of books, each a #1 best seller, have done so well that there will be a movie out this December.
Let's admit it, all of this success is due to one thing, the beautiful covers shot by yours truly. :)
But seriously, out of all of the book covers, ads, magazines, etc. that I have photographed, I get more email about these covers than anything. The fans are seriously awesome.

It's kind of sad that this is the last one, it's been fun.

The Twilight Saga






angel

Light, sweet crude... mmmm, yummy

Just the name alone makes me want to consume more. $4.30 per delicious gallon and rising... still less than a beer in NYC.
Maybe one day cars will run on Schlitz.

Madam Elvis


We photographed Madam Elvis last weekend in her super snazzy "jungle room". This is the first female Elvis impersonator that I have photographed, in fact she is the only one that I know of. What she lacks in sideburns she makes up for with her voice. Check out her site here.


Here's a shot of me and my assistant Justin chillin with the Madam herself...

A great way to meet new friends

Elvis series begins...


I have begun a new project, photographing elvis tribute artists around the country. Here is the first, Bob James under the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn.

What took them so long?


Now that's a campaign that I would love to shoot!

carita

good job Mc D's, you made me cringe on this one.

new site is up


www.rogerhagadone.com has been dusted of and polished up a bit. OK it's not 100 percent ready, the personal sections need still to be added as well as some images but it's close. Comments are always welcome.

Mona Lisa revealed


The real identity of the Mona Lisa has been revealed, a group of German academics says. Experts at the Heidelberg University library found notes scribbled in the margins of a book, dated October 1503, that they say confirm what many art historians have long thought to be true: Lisa Gherardini, the wife of the wealthy Florentine merchant Francesco del Giocondo, was the model for Leonardo da Vinci's legendary portrait, Reuters reports.
