Laura Dern

Here's a shot of Laura Dern that I recently came across from a few years ago. It was an honor to not only meet her, but to get to photograph her. She seemed like such a great person and had very cool energy. I have loved her offbeat roles and acting since seeing her in Blue Velvet in 1986. She comes from acting royalty with Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd as parents and is now married to musician Ben Harper. No doubt their kids will be wicked talented and their own legacy will live on. Despite this shot being so close and revealing, I think we can see how honest and beautifully real she is. Not to mention that it looks like she hasn't had any work done, a rarity in Hollywood these days. Here's to you Laura and all of your success. I hope to see more of you on the big screen soon.

Lions of The Trial Bar

These are the tearsheets from the March cover story of the ABA Journal. They asked us to go in tight and to light dramatically, which was great. I traveled alone, found an assistant to help out in each place and set up a seamless in their offices. I really enjoyed this job and hope to do more for them. I love the design, text, layouts and shots they chose for these guys. Bobby Lee Cook, the last guy here, is my favorite. He was the lawyer that inspired the TV character "Matlock". Such a wonderful face. It belongs on money...
