Cartoons were one of my earliest inspirations to pursue a creative career. And I'm sure they gave many creative children inspiration. Pursuing illustration and graphic publishing led me into digital graphics, where I worked as a communications designer nearly ten years - for the prison industry. I got to design marketing materials and newsletters, nation wide recruiting campaigns, direct photo shoots and produce videos for training and promotion. I love to create robust marketing content libraries!
Here is a little piece of something that never saw the light of day. I illustrated and colored these on my own time, working with some talented and creative writers as well, hoping to lighten the mood in the prison industry! We proposed them for a newsletter, but they didn't make the cut.
Event Photography is about the entertainment value as much as the pictures later.
The photographer's job is to make people feel good and have fun... and to make that memory last beyond the event with memories.
