A few months ago I had the pleasure of photographing Owen Nannarone at his home in Scituate, Mass., for Wired. Owen is 10 years old and makes a hobby of inventing things, most recently a golf tee that can sense the direction and velocity of a golf ball after it’s been hit. He tinkers on projects in a workshop in his family’s basement and repairs and repurposes electronics found in local dumps and recycling facilities. You can see the article and few more photos at Wired.com. More images are available at my photoshelter archive.
It’s always hard to see how my work runs in the Chronicle of Higher Education because the publication isn’t on any newsstands. Thankfully, my local library has a subscription, so I go by periodically to see which images make it into print. Above, you can see a couple portraits I shot for the paper, one (top) of SNHU president Paul LeBlanc and the other of Bryn Geffert, Librarian of the College at Amherst College. Thanks as always to Erica and the rest of the staff at the Chronicle for the assignments!
Excited to see that one of my pictures was printed big in French newspaper Libération last week. The picture, part of my work China Everbright, depicts a women in Yangshuo, China, butchering dogs for meat in a market. The photo was also recently awarded in the Photo Brigade’s Documentary Photo Contest.
Earlier this summer I had the opportunity to work with Technology Review for the first time. The shoot had a bit more art direction than I’m used to; the subject, Christopher Soghoian, was to be photographed wearing a jacket and tie in a business hotel room to accompany an article about how he’s recently embraced the trappings of business and government culture in order to more effectively advocate his ideas on security and privacy in the information age. It was a challenging shoot, and I was happy to hear that Eric, the art director at TR, was pleased with the images and ran the picture huge in their big annual 35 innovators in technology issue.
One of the most personally exciting recent developments in my business has been the opportunity to have my photos represent my family’s home state through the State of Montana Office of Tourism. My pictures have been in a few brochures and travel guides and an iPad app, to date, and recently one photo from Glacier National Park was part of a two-page tourism advertisement in Backpacker magazine; the layout is above.
I photographed renowned chemistry and engineering professor Donald Sadoway for MIT News in advance of his inclusion in the 2012 Time 100 list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
I was surprised to see National Geographic’s website used on my images in a slideshow on the 20 Best Hikes in the National Parks. The image was sold through one of my stock agencies, so I didn’t know who used the image until it showed up in a google alert for my name which showed me a popular Pinterest pin of the image linking to the National Geographic article.
