Ray Greene is a multi-musical man: singer, producer and instrumentalist, and when heâ€™s not on the road with Santana, heâ€™s immersed in a variety of his own projects. I had the pleasure of capturing his wit & larger-than-life spirit in a music-filled afternoon, courtesy of a joint project with Dow Brain.
I first worked with James Grady at Kor Group, and have admired his vision for years. Heâ€™s recently taken an academic position at BU College of Fine Arts and wanted new portraits that connected design thinking with his teaching position. Riffing off reference images that ranged from warm family moments to high-key b&w renditions by Giacommetti, Chuck Close, and others, we captured his thoughtful, down-to-earth attitude in a multi-dimensional shoot.
Jen Welter is a force of nature â€“ and to be fair, more than force is necessary to break through the glass ceiling that she now floats over: Jen was the first female to coach in the NFL. We were set to task with taking this larger-than-life personality and crafting a book cover image that speaks to her tremendous power, that also captures her savvy, smarts and feminine side: a delicate balance. Wrestling with a perfect outdoor location and curve-ball New England weather, we brought the outside in via professional grade turf and a bench from far-flung states. We learned about various features of pro turf, and what it means to be benched with a streamlined production team in our cozy Brookline Village studio. The session was very much an athletic match in a physical, emotional & mental arena, art-directed by Alex Camlin. To learn more, pick up a copy of Play Big – lessons in being limitless from the first woman to coach in the NFL. See what it was like Behind the Lens at an ASMP exhibit â€“ opening and panel discussion October 18th.
