I drew my inspiration for this shot from a photo I saw in National Geographic. Of course I didn’t execute this type of photo as well as I did 4 years later when I shot blackface performer Shirley Q.

Miller Coors has begun to release LGBT point-of-sale ads I recently shot for them in my studio.
If you’re wondering what to do for dinner tonight, check out the Edge Alliance’s Dining Out for Life event. I shot the campaign for this annual event last year, please click here to see more photos and a behind the scenes video.
For this Chicago black and white headshot series featuring models Robin Cook, Eric Luchen and Matthew Cuff, I decided to use natural light, augmented with reflectors, and fast prime lenses shot wide open to blur the background.
