In the Shadow of the Capitol

Monday, November 19, 2007 Concept/Objective:

Assignment ConstructThe objective of this assignment was to produce an attractive environmental portrait of the subject who rose to fame as the result of his revelations regarding a Capitol Hill scandal. The subject specifically stated before the assignment that he would not pose with a laptop or computer (which was the mechanism by which he rose to fame) which severely limited any conceptual ideas.

On Hallowed Ground

Wednesday, October 17, 2007 Assignment ConstructThe call came in at 1:30 on a Friday, while I was gathered with several photographer friends at our local Pho restaurant, and the assignment was for the upcoming Sunday. Concept/Objective:

This client was an award-winning production company that wanted to make a signature image of two mothers who, on the same day - Mother’s Day - lost their sons in the war effort, and both were buried side by side, which is how the women met. The client was turning to me to produce the image of the real mothers, and they were also producing a television production that would tell their story.

Because I was working with two people, and two additional “people” elements, I wanted my 5’ Chimera softbox. Having that much surface to light, and to be beating down a backlit sun, I chose my 2400 w/s bi-tube head, as the objective was f11 at 250th.

Cookies & Cream?

Monday, July 02, 2007 Concept/Objective:

Assignment ConstructThe client was launching a new snack food, and they wanted to get people’s attention, so they made a 20+ foot mockup of the snack food, and brought it to Washington DC to get people to try it. While we were making images of the average joe and jane enjoying it, the company was also celebrating it’s 95th anniversary, so there was a candle-lighting ceremony as well. Lastly, they were filming video for a VNR that was going out as well.
