Mark Cuban

I recently had the pleasure of photographing Mark Cuban for the Wall Street Journal.   I knew I probably wouldn't have much time with Mark, so I had two different sets up and tested on assistants.  I was wondering what "Mark" I was going to be getting.  Sometimes on TV he is pretty loud and in your face, and other times on Shark Tank he seems very easy going and kind even.  Turns out I got the kind and patient Mark, which I was thankful for.  We talked about Shark Tank, our kids and the Mavericks, it was really cool.  I got three different looks with him in about 15 minutes and we were done.  I do really like the image that WSJ picked.  It was a great experience.  

Then a couple of behind the scenes...

Wichita, Kansas

I flew to Wichita, Kansas to shoot a story for Spirit Magazine recently.  Emily Kimbro, the art director of Spirit, was awesome to work with.  She gave me some rough ideas and examples and sent me on my way.  I didn't know a lot about Wichita before I got there, but left with a great impression. I actually was very impressed. It is a large city, but really has a small town feel. My assignment was to go to certain areas of Wichita and photograph the fun things to do.  The locations below are:  Exploration Place, Kansas Cosmosphere, Commerce Street Art District, Old Cowtown Museum and Strataca Salt Mines.  So here you go:
