These wedding photos are a labor of love on both sides of the camera. In front of the camera, Charisse and Tommy could barely contain their happiness for each other. Behind the camera, these emotions they were putting out there into the world were a pleasure to capture. I will let thes photos do more of the talking. Hover over the images to hear more stories about each image.
This photo captures one of those moments. I was walking around Chicago and saw three friends enjoying cigars. I reached into my bag and got my film camera ready for a shot. As I was focusing the lens, the guy in the middle threw me a peace sign. I took the shot, put my camera in my bag, waved back, and continued on. I didn’t realize the guy was Steve Harvey until the scans came back from the film lab. In fact, if I had known it was him, I probably would have left him alone and given him a break from being in the public eye.
Steve Harvey, if this post somehow makes it across your screen, thanks for being so cool about letting me take your photo, and sorry for interrupting your cigar break. It looks like you had great company.
This is a photo series of headshots I did for Dianna, a realtor practicing in Mid-Michigan. Before starting each session I spend a little bit of time explaining how the session will go but most importantly I get the subject in the mood to be photographed. Getting pictures taken is so intimidating for most people and if someone isn’t comfortable, that anxiety comes through in the images. Dianna, was absolutely wonderful to work with and she loved her photos.(more…)
A HUGE heart felt thanks to the museum staff. It is an absolute pleasure working with them every time.
This photos series is from an installation called “Postscript: Writing After Conceptual Art”
We finished up this shoot a day before I was leaving for Malawi and here are a few pictures of us exhausted from a long night of shooting. I love that Traction devotes this much time to making projects come out perfectly.
