I photographed Kurt for MM&E Magazine's 2014 9th Annual Reader's Choice Best of Awards issue this Spring!

What a gorgeous day on the Detroit Riverwalk. We were blessed with some of the best weather for a portrait shoot. Huge fluffy clouds against a deep blue sky made for fantastic reflections in the buildings and partially diffused light on Kurt. Kurt is a DJ at MikeStaff.com, hosts awards shows and parties across Michigan, and a perfect candidate for the 'best of Michigan' awards. I couldn't stop drooling over his 'super' retro Shure Super 55!

Michigan Meetings and Events Magazine recently contacted me to shoot this portrait of Larry for a profile in their publication. The assignment was to show Larry in a classic Detroit business environment, but in the dead of Winter that can be quite a challenge! We chose Cobo Hall for it's wonderful new atrium which is full of light and beautiful glass. You can just make out the people mover in some of these shots. Always a pleasure to work with an such an easy going and great Detroit businessman!
