Ajo, Arizona is a tiny town near the Mexican border. They have a small cafe, a mid-sized motel, a large Spanish Colonial plaza, a huge copper mine and a massive solar installation. July in the Sonoran Desert is hot (almost as hot as Washington DC), but at sunrise the temperature, the light and the scenery … [Read more…]
Jon recently spent a week shooting a story on the state of the solar industry in Kentucky. The highlight of the trip was a helicopter flight provided by the Kentucky Air National Guard. The Air National Guard has 4 solar installations on their Artemus, Kentucky property. Jon says, “There’s nothing more fun than hanging out … [Read more…]
A cover from a recent gig in Sin City. There is another part of Las Vegas, suburbs in a beautiful desert setting, that one normally doesn’t see. Up next, Jon heads to the green fields of Kentucky to shoot photos (and Bourbon) for another story by the same magazine.
One 5 acre complex of abandoned apartment buildings + fire departments from all around San Diego = one hell of a way to start 2012. P2 is currently involved in a multiple day aerial and ground shoot documenting ‘practice burns’. It’s smoky, wet, hot, doesn’t smell too good, and hey…it’s way cool.

And so the tale continues…P2 has now left the deserts of Dallas for the Sierras of Mammoth, CA. We are back on the job, shooting solar. The fossilized Monte Cristo sandwich has been left behind in Lodi (although Jon continues to consume a large amount of Gruyere). The earth movers and hard hats have all … [Read more…]
P2 is seeking their fame and fortune in Dallas this week with a bout of marketing madness at our annual trade show. Thousands of potential customers under one roof! But this photo has nothing to do with that of course. It was shot in Southern California amid scrub and dirt and heat and earth movers … [Read more…]
P2 was recently hired to travel around the southwest photographing electrical substations. One of our favorites is really a sub-substation, completely underground. Below this whimsical little park is a matrix of metal and wire constantly transforming electricity to a voltage we can use in our residential areas. Utility and good design in one.
