Twelve. The number of years ago this week I set out on a new life with Shreve Imaging. I put all my eggs in one huge basket of faith.
I want to thank all the clients who’ve placed their trust in me over the years, and all the people who’ve supported me in pursuit of the dream.
I’m often reminded of an experience I had a while back when I was asked to photograph the C.E.O of Wal-Mart for Kellogg at the Wal-Mart home office. The photo was to be a life-size stand-up of Lee Scott posing with Tony the Tiger to promote Kellogg’s branding in select stores around the country. When I arrived, I was taken to a very nice studio with a green-screen, set up with video lighting. I began to set up my gear & my own lighting, when my Wal-Mart handler informed me I was not to be in that area, and that I would be photographing in a storage closet outside the studio. I couldn’t believe it. But here it is. This is where I photographed the CEO of the largest corporation in the world with one of the world’s most widely recognized corporate icons. I was given exactly five minutes for the shoot. No time for adjustments, makeup, variations, nothing. So here’s the result.
