Defacto Sound Portraits

From Audi to Red Bull, and National Geographic to Fallout 4, Defacto Sound has been designing incredible sounds for high profile clients around the world. Recently, they were in the process of revamping their web site and wanted to create some new headshots that reflected the level of their work and clientele. I spent a fun morning with the team, talking shop and capturing photographs of their incredibly talented team.

Democratic political operative David Brock for TIME Magazine

Very happy to share this image of David Brock, which the American Photography annual chose as one of their favorite 203 out of 8,909 images. Brock is a fascinating guy - once a Republican and now one of Hillary Clinton's most ardent supporters.

Big thanks to Paul Moakley @ TIME for this shoot.

A few of the people and things that kept me awed and amazed in this past year (while acknowledging that they aren't all new to 2015).

This song.

And this one, by Chance the Rapper, that's a favorite of mine and my kids.

Emily Shur's Japan series, this photo essay by Greg Kahn and this book by Sam Abell.

William Finnegan's Barbarian Days and Patti Smith's M Train.  

This can't-miss-always-perfect cake.

This Teju Cole column.

This live performance.

These two

These walls and this tree.

Always, this podcast, and sometimes this one.

And still thinking about this essay and this John Cleese talk on creativity.

Here's to a happy and challenging 2016.
