Luxe Magazine calls me frequently to shoot their Stylemakers series and I absolutely love the process of creating them. It’s a half-day crash course on the region’s notable artists: learning quickly what makes them unique; scouting shoot locations to tell their story, and ultimately creating a personal/emotional space for them to really shine.

And then I cull the experience down to one beautiful black and white image that runs full page.  Doesn’t get any better than that, in my opinion.

This shot is of Michael Pratt and Reta Larson of Pratt & Larson, the country’s leading tile design house.
