Dallas Veterans for Obama

We’ve been trying to track down some pro Obama military folks for a while now, and I figured where better to find them than in Texas! I had come across a listing on my.barackobama.com by a former air force Sergeant, who was organizing veterans to go to the airport to greet returning service [...]

Everything’s Bigger in Texas!

Friday morning we rose early to take a portrait of Dean and Louise, red carpet style, in front of their house. Then we were back on the road, still a little stiff from our hike the day before. The GPS said it would take 11.5 hours to get to Austin, so Rob finally [...]

New Mexico Natives for Obama

Life on the road is rough people! The week we were in Santa Fe I realized that Rob and I had barely been out of each other’s presence for over 30 days! And without a solid day off in all that time, we were both a little punchy. We were granted a brief [...]

Some Like It Hot… Go to Phoenix!

“If You’re Going to San Francisco…”

We woke up in the hills of Park City Utah to a brisk day and a gorgeous view, just as I had predicted. Despite knowing we needed to get on the road and on our way to the Bay Area, we couldn’t help but be plied by huge lattes and more good conversation with [...]

Go West Young Man!

The day before we left Denver I found an event listing for a Labor Day parade in Park City Utah, featuring a 12-foot tall Obama puppet. Knowing we wouldn’t make it in time for the parade, I called the local Obama headquarters to see if we could track down the local artist who had [...]

Our Week at the DNC (Part 3)

With a renewed sense of purpose, and the decision made to head West after Denver, we headed back to CoMedia for our last day of shooting in cushy studio conditions. Rob shot for over 8 hours straight, and we got some of our most diverse and wonderful photos yet. Among the subjects on Friday [...]
