Here’s a few snaps from some AARP Bulletin assignments this year in the state of Maryland. I love Bulletin shoots- the people I get to photograph are so darn sweet. Haven’t met a curmudgeon yet.
A while back, I got to go to Nevada City, California to check out a beautiful little cohousing community. For those of you who don’t know (and I didn’t before this assignment) cohousing is, according to wikipedia “a type of intentional community composed of private homes supplemented by shared facilities. The community is planned, owned and managed by the [...]
I photographed Walt Johnson, a self-described full-time volunteer for the AARP, in Rialto, CA. He keeps AARP handouts on a wide range of topics in his car (which he pulls from a much larger supply in a storage locker near his home) and is always happy to talk about the association and senior issues. We hung [...]
I photographed retired Maryland Army National Guard Master Sergeant Terry Jackson at her home in Edgewood, MD. The Bronze Star recipient served her country for 31 years and was being featured for an article about an expo for female veterans and their families and caregivers.

Over 500 volunteers from around the country descended on Congress to demand that they cut waste, not Medicare or Social Security benefits. I followed the West Virginia contingent as it went from office to [...]
I’m attempting to catch up with and blog all of the assignments I’ve shot this year so far, so I plan to blog every Monday, Wednesday and Friday when possible. I photographed pharmacist Odette Leonelli who owns and operates a pharmacy in Redondo Beach, California. She says the pharmacy is on the verge of closure [...]
I got to spend a little time in Salisbury, Maryland where I photographed incoming AARP President Lee Hammond for the AARP Bulletin. The pressure was a bit higher on this shoot since he’s the president of the organization that produces the publication (and a retired school administrator to boot) but it couldn’t have been a [...]
“Tuesdays with Morrie” author Mitch Albom channels The King (Elvis, not fellow bandmate Stephen King). Much like Brigadoon, the musical supergroup that is the Rock Bottom Remainders appears out of the mists only once in a blue moon. If you’re lucky to catch them in concert, you will be treated to the likes of literary [...]
