As it was left on Tuesday, I had undertaken a monster EAS shoot that had more complexities that I have sanity. It was a three day shoot that would produce over 90 images, a 15, 30 and 60 second commercials, and grey hair.
The life of an advertising photographer is on par with the metaphorical tightrope walk. It is beyond the balancing act almost to a point of daredevil attribute from the inherent risk. There are many great photographers that gravitate towards different avenues of this medium because, let’s face it, advertising is a very complex dance.
Casually beginning my Monday with a latte and Sunrise Earth on the TV, I received a call from the New York Times in regards to a photoshoot in the coming days. As I have enjoyed working with them in the past, I agreed and learned that the photograph would be of the Honorable Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.
Like many, if not all, other photographers, I enjoy the the vast amount of avenues in our medium. Be it photojournalism, table top, macro, etc., I really appreciate what so many other photographers do, and celebrate their successes as much as my own.
