I’ve neglected the blog so far this new year, and I’m hoping to play a little catch up. Most of my 2016 has been spent on the road with multiple trips to Boston, Portland, and Kauai. The range of projects lately has really gotten my excited about what’s next for work and my continued education in this amazing industry.
These tearsheets are from a portrait session I had for Lucky Peach with chef Edouardo Jordan of Salare. The article is a great read on being a minority chef in an overwhelmingly white dominated field.
I had a great time getting some good options of Chef Jordan as he prepped for his dinner menu.
Also on newsstands now is a portrait of Tara Ehlis for Runner’s World. Tara co-owns Spool no 72, a woman’s online boutique, in Central WA. Part of working editorially is to problem solve on the fly. In this instance it was finding a location the morning of the shoot. I drove around an hour before I met with Tara to look for clean backgrounds for the very specific page layout. I made notes of three options, but felt that weathered door with a touch of snow in the foreground would be the hero set up.
