It was last year when I posted last, and I intend to catch up in the next few weeks to share a bunch of stuff. On that note, last week I had the opportunity to shoot portraits of Tulsa, Okla. singer/songwriter John Moreland for The Wall Street Journal. The print version ran the image a half page (which was great), the web version is here:
The first image is the one they used, a few outtakes follow.
The magazine Morningstar is undergoing a redesign and I was asked to shoot a portrait of Eric Nelson, co-founder with his wife Paige of investment firm Servo Wealth Management in Oklahoma City. The design team described the new approach to photography as trying to achieve a more “casual honesty” than the usual corporate feel. The first image ran for the story.
I did some work for Save The Children recently and had the pleasure of photographing Shay-la Taylor and her son Braedon with labor and delivery nurse Cindy Popejoy. When the May 20 tornado hit Moore last year, Shay-la was in labor at Moore Medical Center when the tornado touched down. Cindy stayed with her the whole time, even with a direct hit on the hospital. Braedon is a beautiful, healthy one-year-old now.
