nordstrom’s brothers for bloomberg businessweek

I recently had the opportunity to photograph the Nordstrom’s brothers for Businessweek magazine.  I had less than an hour to get a few looks in and that meant setting up a studio and heading up to the rooftop as we couldn’t shoot in the store itself.

Slight resemblance to the Kennedy family.

Where did September and October go?  I momentarily abandoned the blog mainly due to one of the busiest stretches I’ve had in my career.  Now that Fall is here,  it’s time to play catch up.  

First up,  is a travel story I photographed for Cooking Light (issue on stands now) on the food scene in Honolulu.  I spent three days photographing over 10 restaurants and chefs.  I actually spent 3 years of my life on O’ahu growing up,  so anytime I get to head back to visit old friends is a real treat.
