Some folk may know that my “day job” is running my own private law practice on the Sixth Floor of downtown’s glorious Patterson Building. It’s during my “off” time that I work on my art (sometimes in a rented studio space on the second floor).

Increasingly, the lines blur. As my photography gains a little more local recognition, I end up having more discussions about photography with people I know because of my law office. It helps that I display the safer pieces of my work in my law office.

This recently lead to an opportunity for a number of firsts. My first shoot involving only males. My first shoot involving only clothed people (although one of the besuited men at the studio was Shoeless Jerry Not-Jackson).

And my first corporate shoot.

The results were gratifying.

In addition to putting together this, and individual portraits, I also decided to play with one of the group shots.

We also managed to get individual shots of everyone.

There was even the obligatory gag shot:

It’s not so much a gag shot itself, I guess, but what I did with it. (And, yes, I drew the picture myself. Me, the budding Photoshop artist.)

I don’t have much else to say about this, except that it was a great shoot. I enjoyed the opportunity to try something new. I look forward to more such shoots.

Special thanks to Top Hand Media, LLC, for the opportunity.

If you’re interested in learning what I can do for you, drop me a line. You won’t regret it!
