Darden Business Grad Ari Perlman for BusinessWeek
Ari was another one of those patient and willing subjects that make my job easy (at least easy in the photographer-subject relationship department). His story was one I'm guessing I may be shooting often in these times, of a college student whose job prospects are looking dim after graduating from business school. To make matters worse, he was a summer intern at Lehman Brothers and their last check to him bounced. With that said, Ari came across as a sharp, optimistic guy who I'm sure will land on his feet. Shortly after this shoot, I got on a plane to Seattle for another shoot with Underground Ads, an advertising company based in San Francisco who I had shot for earlier this year.
After an emotional shoot at Seattle Children's Hospital, I needed to decompress a bit and decided to walk around the city and do some street shooting. It was non-stop rain for the six hours I wandered the streets as it got dark. The rain made for great scenes and some very wet shoes.
