I had the great honor of doing some advertising photography of Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz at Fenway Park for Marucci Sports last month. Big Papi was as fun to work with as you would think. Joking around the whole time and very cooperative.
I was commissioned by the University of Chicago Magazine to photograph alum Michael Murphy in February in Boston for a story in their Mar./April ’15 issue. Mr. Murphy is the executive director and co-founder of Mass Design Group, an architectural firm that works to fix the ills of society with beautiful and functional design. They often build hospitals and schools in under served places like Rwanda and Haiti. It truly was a pleasure to meet such a great team of people working towards making health and learning easier for people and at the same time making works of art. As as it happened, I had a front row seat to the New England Patriots World Championship parade which passed by the firm’s offices on Boylston St. the day I visited! What a bonus!
Here is a clip of my work of Dr. Alan Smith, Former Chief Scientific Officer of Genzyme, who I photographed (in his greenhouse) for the Wall Street Journal last month. The story called Man Caves That Aren’t for Cave Men is about men who build personal spaces for themselves to relax in that are not in the traditional sports or game theme. I also shot some video for this story which you can see on the Wall Street Journal’s site along with more still photos in a slideshow. The photos in grey above are not mine.
Dr. Smith had two great golden retrievers who I got to meet as well during the shoot. You can see one of them through the door of this greenhouse.
