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.

President’s Ranch - Crawford Texas

Monday, November 12, 2007 The opportunity presented itself to cover the arrival of the German Chancellor to the Bush Ranch, and while I had a tight schedule with commitments the day before and the day after outside of Texas, this was something that had just the right timing that lent itself to being covered. Concept/Objective:

Assignment ConstructThe objective was to capture a nice image of the President and German Chancellor during their visit to the Bush ranch in Crawford Texas. The Chancellor and her husband came to see the President in a much more informal setting than would be at the White House, but it was important to me that there be something that places them there. A ranch house would have been nice, so too, livestock, or something “ranch-y”. Yet, I was on hand to document what happened, so my ability to control anything was limited to my position.

Spy Games Portrait

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.
