End of August

In the past 2 weeks I've shot millions of dollars worth of classic automobiles, photographed the founder of Sam Adams beer, captured some beautiful interior bedroom images, traveled to Bristol, TN to film a NASCAR race team (while staying awake for 44 hours straight), edited countless hours of video interview footage, then finished up with a vacation swimming in shark-infested waters.   How’d your August end? Please visit my website: Visit me on Facebook: The Photography of Glenn PerryAll Images Copyright © The Photography of Glenn Perry

Rob Fuller Motorsports and 15-40 Connection - Racing to Fight Cancer
Thursday, November 07, 2013
End of August

When most people think about victims of cancer, a picture of someone in their latter years usually comes to mind. Unfortunately, there's a large segment of the afflicted population, younger folks, that gets overlooked. 15-40 Connection is an incredible organization that spreads awareness of those aged 15 to 40 years old that have been affected by this terrible disease.Over this past year, I've been photographing fundraising efforts with them to help spread the word about early cancer detection. One such effort has been documenting this past racing season with the NASCAR Whelen Modified 15-40 Connection sponsored racing team of Rob Fuller Motorsports.Rob's family have been in the racing ...

What a Drag!

End of August

The latest Crypt Studios promo image "What a Drag!" came about when I was thinking of a new way to portray their company vehicle; a reaper-driven, death-black 1980 Cadillac Hearse.When are cars at their most exciting? Hmmmmmmm... when they race. What's a plausible race that would involve a hearse? Hmmmmmmm... a DRAG race. What's a meaty looking muscle machine that wouldn't be afraid to take on the "Car of Darkness"? Easy. A screaming red 1972 Dodge Charger driven by none other than Elizabeth Syn. And who better to kick this carnival off than the mighty, sexy, fire-breathing, tattooed model goddess Miss Mischief! Now when casting for these Crypt Studios promo shots I wasn't going to ...

Burying the Band
Thursday, August 01, 2013
End of August

The band is dead. Literally. In a late evening frenzy, she drives to the back yard of a remote, abandoned haunted house to hide the evidence. The exhaustive digging begins when suddenly she looks up to see a light go on in the window with a shadowy figure peering down. Her secret's out... That's the premise of my latest Crypt Studios promo shot "Burying the Band". It's a caught-in-the-act theme with a dark edge and who better to have portray a heavy metal grave digger than the lovely Boston babe with the cool tattoos, Shelley C.! After pouring through countless modeling profiles, one woman really stood out as being stunningly beautiful and having a strikingly hip look to her. ...

Speed Metal

What has a 500 c.i. motor, dual 800 carbs, an 871 human skull-induced blower, a Chevy 400 turbo transmission, a 9 inch Ford Detroit Locker rear end, and pounds out 800 horsepower? This vehicle: Who's lanky, pale, balding, and foaming at the mouth to photograph it? Well, ME of course!!! I was honored to have the privilage of spending some time with this mean machine and its very cool, down to earth owner.The photograph was a year in the making, having first seen this beauty (which is actually all hand-forged and registered as a 1925 Ford pickup) at the New England Summer Nationals in Worcester, MA last year. I knew I needed to shoot it but logistics kept me from doing so until this July ...

The Getaway

End of August

The concept of a modern day witchhunt intrigued me. What would it look like and what could trigger the chase? How 'bout a rocker girl stealing a $6,666.66 signature issue Les Paul Custom Zakk Wylde Camo electric guitar from a hillbilly music store owner and running wild through an old cemetery. Sounds plausible. It must happen all the time. The idea was to put a modern spin on the old Frankenstein/angry villager man hunt theme. Here's what happened:  For the setting, I needed to find an old cemetery that didn't have any modern looking gravestones or Taco Bells in the background. After scouting countless cemeteries, I was tipped off to an amazing graveyard deep in the back roads of ...

The Joy of Massage

End of August

If you're anything like me, massage is on your top ten list of favorite activities and when you receive one from someone who really knows what they're doing, it's heaven on Earth. If it's good, I leave  with a feeling of bliss and for the next few hours, nothing can penetrate that bubble of contentment. Jessica Jacques of Joy They Bring Massage Therapy is one of those special people that can provide you with that state of mind as well as work out all those knots and kinks. It's amazing to me that the massaging of muscle can release so much stress as well as those euphoric endorphines. Recently, Jessica asked if I could provide some photography for her new business and I was happy ...

Cycle Slayer!

End of August

Lilith Astaroth. What can I say? She's as complex as she is talented. She models cosplay, steampunk, latex, fetish, you name it. She's amazing at all of them. She acts, she dances, she writes, she plays video games, and oh ya, did I mention she also fronts and sings for the death metal band Sorrowseed? This girl is busy and when not modeling, traveling, or touring with the band, she's always somewhere interesting just being very cool.On the surface, Lilith is one of the nicest, kindest people you'll ever meet. You just want to hang with her. She's calm and professional. However, when she's in front of an audience or that camera is turned onto her, it's another story. She can emit these ...

"Explosive Siren" was the first image in a series of dark art concepts I conjured up for the collection of Crypt Studios promo shoots I've been working on within the past year. I wanted something very bold, stark, and bombastic that encompassed the criteria setup by the Crypt fellas (heavy music and rock & roll women with a dark edge).My thought process started with the overall shape of the image and worked its way into the details. It had to EXPLODE. It also had to be sexy AND deliver a heavy metal message. The image might not make logistical sense but I think it elicits the right emotions: Now to how I pulled this one off. I chose model Siren for this shot. She lives and breathes ...

A New Life

End of August

A new life entered my life a few months ago when my son Ian was born. He's mine and my wife's first child and we couldn't be happier. He popped out a healthy, handsome, wrinkly, blond, lanky, 6 lb. 9 oz. confused, screamy, bundle of love who gets cuter by the day. He's made my life so much richer as each day we get to know each other a little better and I've come to the conclusion, I really like this guy.Of course, as any parent knows, you get busy. REALLY busy. Parenting is all hands on deck and takes a LOT of your time. When you're used to doing what you want, when you want for decades, suddenly that spur of the moment sunrise photo opportunity gets a little harder to pull off. I'm ...

So there are these guys. Good guys. They mean business. Music business to be exact. The also know what it's like to be in a young struggling band, trying to navigate the colossal voyage of getting a band off the ground with no money, no guidance, no producer, no manager, no rehearsal space, no quality recording, and a mountain to move to try and get noticed. That was 20 years ago.Now they're older, wiser, and have a keen understanding of what tools a band needs to give them a shot at success. Enter Crypt Studios. A one stop complex for musicians, by musicians, that offers everything a band could desire to help them along and up the ladder of fame and fortune. Rehearsal spaces, state of the ...
