Aerial Assignments

An engineering firm asked me to document a few projects from the air. I was within a couple miles of the Fowler Ridge turbine field, so I directed the pilot to fly to the turbines.  With the  work for the engineers completed,  this bonus is one of my favorite images of the morning’s flight.

We are dynamic, we have to look that way.

I was retained to photograph a group of cutting edge consultants for a new initiative.  I was given the freedom to do something unexpected and engaging, the client was pleased.  I decided to post this today, because I saw many of these portraits posted elsewhere on the internet, and forgot how much I liked this group of photos.  Click image for larger view>>Purdue Foundry

Father Kurt

While I was attending graduate school at Purdue University, I was told a couple times, “you photograph Indiana like Vonnegut writes about it.”

Later that year I was commissioned to photograph Kurt Vonnegut’s brother Bernard Vonnegut.  I was touched with Kurt’s mention of his brother in his last novel Timequake.

His brother had recently passed on;  I wondered if he was aware of the photograph I created of Bernard, so I wrote him a note and sent off a couple prints to his agent.

I received this letter just a couple days later.

Dynamic, Innovative, Exciting, Visuals

Creating unexpected, innovative, and exciting visuals is what makes me tick.  These are some of my favorites going back a few years.  The black and whites were done the old chemical ways.
