Long Term Projects
   We love longer term projects. Great photography takes time to learn the subject, understand the geography or build a relationship with a person. The day-to-day hustle of the press corp only allows you to know the "principal", not the people and places he visits. Long term can mean all day, or all weekend or "on tour" all summer. With high profile people, Trust is important. A photographer must be close enough, to get "the shot", but never intrude. The best photographers are "ghost" and never "seen". Our job is to make the client look good to the fans, to the print media, for the advertisers that support the business interest. No paparazzi photography attacks here.
   When Willie Nelson, Hank Williams Jr or the Oak Ridge Boys go on tour, the fans want to "get up close". Jerry Reed sings about "the Bird" and great photos bring the song to life. Country music legends like Ernest Tubb, Charlie Pride, and Merle Haggard are as natural offstage as on. It was great to see John Anderson and Lee Greenwood evolve from performers to stars. The photography better be great when Barbara Mandrellís daddy, Irby is managing the tour and asks "pretty please". Larry Gatlin fronts his Gatlin Brothers Band family. Guitar players, Waylon Jennings and Eric Clapton are as different as night and day, but both have specific public images to project. Great photography captures the mood in the moment. Concerts, movie sets, Politics, race tracks... who is the toughest subject ever??? The biggest celebrity.... world wide, Santa Claus, of course.
