Local Color

Recently, while in Scottsdale to photograph key management and top performers for AT&T, I had the chance to grab some local-interest shots.

It’s my understanding both the cacti and the cowboy light up at night.

Barge Worker

Posted by – April 12, 2010

Barge workers live an intermittently nomadic life toiling on the noisy, dirty, and very dangerous “river trains” that push massive tonnages of grain, ore, coal and other materials up and down treacherous rivers like the Mississippi.

When I was on assignment in New Orleans for the energy company AEP, I wanted to create a portrait of a barge worker that was emblematic of the inherent dignity of honest labor for an honest purpose.  Notice how this barge worker has a calm, confident sense of whom he is.  He’s as authentic as the river itself.
