Staff promo photo and headshot sessions don’t have to be stuffy, the wonderful folks at Worldreader brought props!
All the feather boas and silly glasses can’t distract from how incredibly cool this non-profit group is, they’re bringing free e-readers and books to over nine countries in Africa and serve many people more through their mobile app. Literacy is the first hurdle for so many people to overcome and I was really impressed by the passion and enthusiasm everyone at their San Francisco office brings to their work.

I was contacted recently by a former co-worker, Justin Barker, who’s been freelancing as a director and is starting up his own production company. Justin’s a multi-talented producer with solid experience ranging from pre-production planning, direction, and in the field shooting.

Last week I did a headshot and portrait session with author and poet Lauren Wheeler. Lauren is an eloquent, intelligent, and passionate writer who has a book coming out next year that I’m very excited about.
