Over the past couple months I’ve been developing a concept for a series of images that are “zombie” themed. This is a project that is going to take several months to complete, and I will post more about how the idea was developed, the images shot, etc etc. once the entire series is complete. I just wanted to share a few images for now.
Returning emails, retouching, booking shoots, calling clients back, uploading files, updating websites, marketing, accounting. As a freelance photographer, these are just a few of the tasks that populate my day. It is unbelievably easy to lose sight of why I actually started taking photos in the first place. In an attempt to battle this getting caught up that tends to happen, a couple times a year I try and do some photography that simply puts a smile on someones face. Here is a project I worked on over the holidays for a non-profit company called Foothill Vocational. Their entire purpose is to secure work for adults with autism/down syndrome.
Back Story Back in October of 2011 I was assigned to do an editorial on Foothill Vocational for Pasadena Magazine. Everyone that I photographed there was such a pleasure to work with I knew I had to do something for them in return. I approached the staff over at Foothill and discussed some ideas. We ended up deciding to do a holiday portrait of every employee that wanted one done, which ended up being right around 125 people. Enough of me rambling on. Go ahead and check out the behind the scenes video.
