Here are some pictures I took last September from a story that got shelved by the NHL lockout. I spent a long weekend with a reporter from ESPN Magazine wandering the streets of the metro area, photographing hockey fans who had something to say about star Capitals player Alex Ovechkin. The story was supposed to [...]
2012 was my first year shooting for Government Executive magazine. They’ve been a fantastic client and I’ve been lucky to work on several assignments with them in the area. For the photographers out there who think the big nationals are the end-all-be-all, don’t discount the niche publications. They are almost always completely awesome. My job [...]
The University of Texas has a cool alumni magazine and they reached out to me last year to shoot a particularly interesting alumnus of theirs. Josh Rushing was a public affairs officer in the U.S. Marine Corps when he was featured in the documentary Control Room about Al Jazeera during the U.S. invasion of Iraq. [...]
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.
One of my very favorite editors called me up this fall and asked me to choose between two assignments occurring at the same time. One was something I’ve already forgotten, and the other was shooting portraits of Henry Winkler. So you see here which one I selected. I might be the biggest Arrested Development fan I know, [...]
I photographed venture capitalist and former AOL executive Miles Gilburne for a Financial Times article. We started at his office and walked over to his home nearby. Great commute!
Washingtonian asked me to photograph the 2012 recipients of their annual Green Awards earlier this year. Here are some outs from the shoots.
I photographed a day of protest at the White House last year for a subject which garnered a lot of attention thanks to a few high-profile celebrity arrests. These folks are spitting mad about the proposed expansion of the pipeline that delivers crude from the tar sands of Canada to the United States. The president [...]
I’ve been a big admirer of all things photo in ESPN The Magazine for years now, so when they came calling (via my wonderful agent at Redux Pictures) I was over the moon. They told me they were devoting the lion’s (eagle’s?) share of an issue to Michael Vick and they wanted me [...]
I spent a day in April with a Marie Claire fashion editor in Santa Barbara, CA in search of cute girls and confident women to photograph for their regular “What I Love About Me” feature. It was a long day in the sun (exposure to which I generally try to avoid due to my fair [...]
I’ve relocated back to Washington DC, but this East Coast heatwave has me waxing nostalgic for the mild California winter I enjoyed this year. I spent a number of afternoons hiking Runyon Canyon, just a few blocks from my apartment. One day, I got a late start on my hike and came around the final [...]
A lot of folks didn’t know about Huma Abedin before her husband, Rep. Anthony Weiner’s recent scandal. I first encountered her on the campaign trail in 2008. She was Clinton’s right-hand-woman and still is. To work in such a capacity for a person with that schedule and intellect requires a level of skill, grace and [...]
Be warned: this is a picture-heavy post. Most of my assigned work this year involved making portraits of a pretty broad range of characters. Five years ago I would have scoffed at the thought of doing so much portrait work- it’s practically anathema to the photojournalist credo. We’re not supposed to set up shots or [...]
I made a series of portraits at the National Capital Cat show back in 2008 and I went again this year to add to the collection. I suppose you could say cat show portraits are a sort of hobby of mine. They tickle all the right parts of my brain. I also learn neat cat [...]
