Living in the city of bridges has its perks.  Flowing rivers catering to commerce and leisure activities with bridges connecting the south or north shores to the city center.  A mountain overlooking the golden triangle and surrounding areas gives the perfect opportunity to capture the rolling hills.

Current sets include:
2012 Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon
From Mt. Washington

I have had the privilege of taking pictures in some of Pittsburgh most active bars/nightclubs.  Using the ever-changing lighting and environment I try to capture interesting images before they disappear.  Usually shooting thousands of images in a night to only find a couple handful that correctly capture the vibe of the night.

Check out the Flickr link above to see shots I’ve taken in venues such as Diesel Club Lounge, Local Bar and Kitchen, Whim & MIXX in Station Square, and Saddle Ridge Rock-N-Country Saloon.

I took a trip to Washington, D.C. late October 2010 for a concert and decided to stay a few days to tour the city.  This was my first time visiting my nations capitol and I ventured out during the day to take some pictures of the National Mall and back again after dark to get a different perspective of the area.

While I was in town, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert held their Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear on the National Mall. I stayed an extra day to experience being in the crowd for one of these events and took some pictures of the crowd.

Burt's Bees Micro Site by RJ Schmidt
Burt’s Bees Micro Site, a photo by RJ Schmidt on Flickr.

During a introduction to Flash class we were given the task of designing a micro site for a collection of Burt’s Bees products. Embedded below are two still mockups for the micro site and links to the Flash-driven horizontal and vertical ads.
The project plays off of a bee’s hive theme. Each link from the main page would go to a more detailed page about a certain product or information on Burt’s Bees as a company.

Each of the banner ads are designed to tell the reader to just ‘Bee’ natural and to “Come Explore Our Hive” – inviting them to the micro site to find out more about Burt’s Bees.
