Editorial Portrait Photography

On a cold February afternoon, we headed out to a local university to shoot this editorial portrait of Barry for their Alumni Magazine.  The cool thing about this assignment was that we were shooting for multiple platforms, a printed magazine and also their iPad app which incorporates a lot of transition movements.  Really cool.  This […]
