Michael Aaron McAllister

I had the great opportunity to meet and photograph artist
Michael Aaron McAllister for Craft Magazine. This was my
second time to work with Craft and each assignment was rewarding.
The studio is an enclosed balconey that is 6x12 with 12 foot ceilings.
It is an inspiring workspace. He is turning the quilting & embroidery
world on its head with his work which includes portraits of Napoleon,
Bonnie & Clyde, Jerry Falwell, & Howard Hughes just to name a few.
Click here for detail shots of his work & studio.

Here are a few tear sheets from the November issue of ESPN Rise Magazine.The assignments showcase high school athletes that are standouts in their sport.The athlete pictured below is Tyler Griffey. He has committed to Illinois and is the top player in the area (and possibly the state) of Missouri. He will play for Illinois in 2009. Tyler was gracious, super talented and patient.

Olympus XA

Picked up a new point & shoot film camera- the Olympus XA.
It's a great little pocket rangefinder, plus it smells like film.

Golf Carts Take to the Streets

Recent tear sheet from my inbox featuring Bob and Shirley Woll
from Sesser, Illinois for AARP. Due to the economy and gas prices towns like Sesser are allowing golf carts to be used as a mode of transportation. I always enjoy this type of assignment meeting new people and discovering details about their slice of life. If you are ever near Sesser stop by the Opera House Cafe, they have some of the best fried chicken I've ever tasted.
