I really enjoy working with publications and getting to meet and photograph so many interesting people. In 2021, I had the opportunity to capture around 30 different editorial portraits for Virginia Business Magazine, based in Richmond. Many times, I only get about 15-30 minutes with each subject and that time must include location scouting, equipment set up and capture. So, thinking on my feet is a must! I never know what the environment of the location will be like until I arrive and sometimes finding a time that works for my subject's schedule means shooting at (not ideal) high noon outdoors! However, I love the challenge that shooting these quick on-location portraits brings and getting to hear a little bit of each person's story along the way.
Here are a few of the portraits I captured around Virginia in 2021:
