I have been very fortunate in my career as an image maker. People from all walks of life have afforded me opportunities, given me entry and supplied me with ideas for subject matter. Without these people and their altruism it would be much harder, probably impossible, for me to have acheived the goals I have met and strive to acheive later.
Kohler is a longstanding client and I have done many projects with them for various still campaigns so when they called me recently to invite me to do a still and video campaign I jumped at the chance. The brief was to capture a before and after kitchen renovation project. I am proud to share this work. Special shout out to Nick Kapanke for his directing and edit. And a hearty thank you to the Donovan family and Susan Serra for their time, enthusiasm and thoughtful collaboration during our two days together.
I was commissioned by a client of John McWilliam (yes he is my cousin but don’t hold that agains me…) to do a group portrait of the talented artisans who redecorated and fabricated many of the contents in her home. It was a welcome challenge because I am not known for my portrait work. It was also a photoshop fest because all the principles in the final photograph couldn’t all make it at the same time. I will leave it up to you dear reader to pick out who was later photoshopped into the final picture. Ben of CSI deserves note for the seamless integration of all the players into the final image.
While I was in Milwaukee I also photographed a commerical project for Scathain. Thanks Mary! Great work John!
