I have made portraits for the entire length of my career. I usually work with an art director to achieve a certain look by highly refining every detail. Those kinds of portraits are less spontaneous and don’t usually focus on everyday people.
Working with United Way was the opposite of this and was a very refreshing experience, especially since they’re a non-profit organization. These people love what they do and it shows. I was able to spend time with each and every employee over a two day period on location at their Phoenix office.
