Frank Blake for Fortune

FrankBlake01 I’m a bit behind with this update.  I photographed Home Depot CEO Frank Blake about this time last year for Fortune Magazine.  I went down to Atlanta where the company is based and we met up at the Home Depot across the street from corporate HQ.  You should have seen the employees scrambling to make sure everything was perfect for Frank and this photoshoot.FrankBlake02 Frank Blake, CEO, Home Depot.

One thought

  1. Nice work (as usual). He does look really nervous…look at his hands in most of the images. Lots of tension in the hands. Still you told a nice story.
