I had the pleasure of collaborating with Marijuana Business Magazine for their current cover. As a photographer living here in Denver, I always enjoy this type of on-location executive portrait commission. The light, weather and backdrop are always changing but the thing that remains a constant is my goal to create a photograph that my client, subject and myself are all happy with.
I am pleased to share the August 2012 cover of Golf Business magazine with my photograph on the cover. Yep – this is a real portrait made during an actual fireworks display on July 3rd. And moving that huge buffalo head on a golf cart to the location for the photograph they used as a spread inside sure did get me some interesting looks. Happy August!
I had a great time in Arizona this week photographing a wildland fire camp. A perfect setting for an interesting documentary style photo story. Many, many thanks to all who helped make this assignment and shoot possible.
The magazine hired me to create an environmental portrait of Larry Gold at their Boulder, Colorado headquarters. I knew there was the potential for this story -and a photograph from the shoot- to appear on the cover. Because of that, I created 3 different lighting + location setups to give the magazine a variety of options to work from. So, with some advanced planning, (I was able to read a draft of the article beforehand which allowed me to better integrate elements of the story into the photographs) Larry’s cooperation and a little luck, we made the cover.
