the Shape of Things to Come

With the sad news of layoffs at BusinessWeek, I thought I'd post the most recent few of my tearsheets for them and also wish a hearty thanks and good luck to the wonderful editors I've worked with.

A special thank you to Sarah Morse, Lori Perbeck, Mindy Katzman, Scott Mlyn, Kathy Moore and Andrew Popper, who have seen me through 60+ assignments in the last year and a half. I know for a fact that my professional development as a photographer has been hastened along in the last 18 months due in no small part to the faith these editors had in me and the wonderful, and challenging shoots they've entrusted me with. Their incredible talents will no doubt be missed, but I'm hopeful there will continue to be jobs out there in this strange media landscape for talented editors with strong visions like the ones I've been lucky to work for.

Congressman Darrell Issa for BusinessWeek

I photographed Congressman Darrel Issa and T. Rowe Price Director James Kennedy almost 3 months apart, but the photos came out within a couple weeks of each other. Congressman Issa does not have the typical political backstory, and in fact was admittedly a car thief who was arrested several times along with his brother in stolen vehicles, but never charged with a crime. Issa went on to run the largest car alarm company in the country.

Mr. Kennedy helped T. Rowe Price weather the financial crisis, foreseeing the coming problems with mortgage-backed securities. While I didn't leave with any hot stock tips, I was taken with his generosity in making sure I didn't feel rushed and letting me use locations spread out all over the entire building where the company was headquartered.
