The Greatest Puzzle...

I never really post just the spreads, but I think I will this time around, because this is one of my all-time favorites. The super talented folks at WNC Magazine whipped this one up. Huge props to Denise Szakaly who just got promoted to Art Director... Yay Denise! As a photographer I've seen my images butchered in a bad spread, and I've seen them flourish in a good one... here you see them thrive.

I was hired to shoot 8 remarkably stylish folks from their fields... theatre, art, architecture, interior design, personal fashion... and I had a lot of fun doing it. I think this is my favorite type of project right now, the location portrait. Sometimes I get to scout, sometimes not, but I always have to show up and figure it all out. It's the greatest form of a puzzle... all the pieces laid out before me, and I get to choose how they go together.

Wow! These are great! I especially like the mix of light for The Producer. Will we get any behind the scenes peaks for these shoots?

you know... I smushed my G9 a few months back and havn't replaced it yet... so no timelapses unfortunately. I'll draw a diagram though.... try and get something going for you. Maybe a guess-the-diagram? THat could be fun.
