Editorial Portrait Photography: Things have sort of come full circle….. when I was a teenager my best friend introduced me to his family past time, meeting professional athletes and getting their autograph.

Tufts university Alumni magazine just published a portrait I shot for them of Chicago physician Dr. Steve Newman M.D. and his wife Sara Neely Newman, M.D.
