One of my commercial clients had a baby so we got to it documenting a few hours of ‘A Morning in the Life’. He delivered the full array of expressions with a little nap in there too.
Most of the photography ops of the Bushes up in Maine were of The President and his cabinet or visiting world leaders. On occasion Mrs. Bush and sometimes the family would be present as well. My time in her presence was not up close nor often but on those rare occasions, as here, she exuded a buoyant no nonsense personality, warmth, and a quick wit. What does it take to be the wife (followed by mother) of a world leader? I am sure one cannot even begin to know until they know- but great inner strength is mighty high on that list no doubt. RIP Mrs. Bush.

President of Windstar Cruises, John Delaney and I met up a few months ago on the Seattle waterfront for some images for the Canadian PAX Magazine. His engaging approachable self made it a pleasure and I believe our results relay….
These images were shot for professional purposes. I realize the logical path for anything is to know the destination, i.e. the use of the image. However, the minute I start thinking ‘for business’ it is all over. I shoot the same whether for personal or professional use. Authenticity is appreciated no matter its placement. Or so I feel, find and follow.
