Chicago Magazine-Puppet Person

The July opener in Chicago Magazine is a portrait I made of Blair Thomas, puppeteer extraordinaire. We shot many set ups, but I liked this one best of Blair and his friend up on the Metra tracks near his west side studio.

As trains whizzed past we shot Blair, in and out of character. It was really fun because I got a private performance from this originator of Chicago's Redmoon Theater Company. Blair is now on his own with Blair Thomas & Co performing original works around the country.

Sketchbook X

For ten years, Chicago's Collaboraction theater company has been producing their annual Sketchbook festival of short plays. It's a unique and dizzying night of live theater and musical performance that runs June 10-27 at the beloved Chopin Theater. This year see 20 plays (optionally) over 2 nights.

I've been an artistic associate member for many years as I contribute to marketing images for the company. I've gratefully made a lot of theater connections through our relationship and always look forward to working with them.

Coke for Kids

I almost forgot to share this project I shot with Atlanta's, always wonderful, Fitzgerald and Company for Coke. We shot an outdoor campaign for their World of Coke Museum in downtown Atlanta. I cast 3 awesome kids to stay up LATE, drinking Coke and watch movies for me.

The best part of World of Coke is the tasting room where you can sample Coke products from around the world. My favorite was brand called Beverly Cola from Italy that tasted like Campari.


Over the weekend we shot an upcoming feature for O The Oprah Magazine. We got rained out, so on the spot I came up with a location solution. Buy the September issue and see where we shot.
