Last year we reconstructed the way the staff has done yearbooks in the past. We began focusing on large photos, that portray scenes. These scenes were meant to portray the person in the environment that they work on campus.
Audrey works at the campus coffee shop, "Joe's". I believe she is now the lead barista and manager of the coffee shop, not to mention a close friend who always brings a smile to my face.
Last year Elliot worked on campus at Moody's gymnasium, the Sohlheim Center. This photo was taken in what was termed "the dungeon". Which was really a simple room with pipes that regulate the water flow, chemicals, and temperature within the swimming pool.
Unlike the other photos, the remaining shots are meant to be images used on divider pages within the book. Many of the divider shots were given to me as a blank slate. The staff essentially gave me license to have a ball and do something that fit with the section that they would represent. I definitely had some fun with these photos.
This shot of Thomas, my old roommate, was used as a divider for "Arts & Media". We took this photo at the Chicago Vietnam Veterans War memorial in broad daylight with the use of several small flashes
The two following photos are shots intended for this same purpose, however they were never published in the yearbook.
These shots contain an old friend who is currently in Africa. I've known Jon since middle school. I will hopefully see him again soon.
This last shot is also of Jon. This was intended to be another divider page. It is one of my favorite photos that I've taken, it was never published; it simply did not fit the theme of our book last year.
As always, clicking on these images will provide a larger view of the photo. So go ahead, click some photos. Or, if you'd like to see examples of other portraits that I've done click here.
If you would like to commission me to create a photo like any above: (for use by your band, solo album, promotional material, etc.) shoot me an email and we can talk this kind of project over.
