New Work! part 2

The Boston Mag stuff is up. Here's a sneak peak of one of them, see the rest here. I haven't shot a studio assignment in a bit so it was a nice departure from my environmental work.

New Work!

I just added a new section to my site titled "New!". A lot more to come there. I am still working on my edit for the Boston Magazine story. Trying to narrow down 35 portraits to 12 is proving a bit challenging, but in the meantime you can see the magazine's edit in the May issue thats out now. I think they ended up running 12 for the story and the rest should be online soon. I'm really feeling all this new stuff, been lighting stuff a bit again and the Boston Mag story is studio stuff which was fun.

Here's what you'll see on the site.

Eddie Adams Workshop XXII

I can not speak highly enough on the place, people and experience of the Eddie Adams Workshop. Changed me as a person and photographer. I've been lucky enough to tag along with the last two years as Clay Patrick McBride's assistant and I was a student in 2006. Take a second to get some work together and apply. I promise you won't be disappointed.

The MassArt 20th Annual Benefit Art Auction part 2

So in a previous post I mentioned and showed the framed Chuck Close portrait that I donated to the Mass. Art Auction. The auction took place this past weekend and it went for a real great price which was good news in itself but that is not all. I received a phone call today that a second collector would like to purchase another print from the edition. I'm super flattered. The Chuck Close portrait is probably one of my most if not the most iconic portrait that I have made to date. Every time make a new portrait I hope it's my "next chuck picture". Others have come close but I think its a combination of the man and the actual photo that makes it so special. In the end I'm thankful to Chuck, Swindle Mag and Mass Art for making it all possible.
