Daily Dozen – Women Wearing Pearls

Don’t know what’s behind today’s set. I think it was just opening my photo stream and seeing a picture of a woman wearing pearls. I can’t vouch for all of the pearls in these photographs being real, but it’s the thought that counts.

Daily Dozen – Women in Bars

This may be a first. Yesterday I did men in bars and said I’d do women’s today and here it is! The first photo is from Austin, TX. It was the first night I went out and photographed strangers. It hadn’t been my thing before that and if people hadn’t responded well to me asking I probably wouldn’t have continued. I’m glad people were – and continue to be – open minded.

Daily Dozen – Men I’ve Worked with Over the Years

The other day I did a set of women I worked with, today I decided to turn things around and look at some of the men I’ve worked with over the years. As I mentioned in the other set, my work has meant most of my colleagues have been men and my interest in photographing faces is a fairly new phenomenon so the pool of images available to me is limited. That said, I was easily able to find 12 photographs. As I think about it, I do have a history of photography faces that predates this project. Digging up and scanning some of those photos might be a project for some weekend this summer. In any case, here are 12 men I’ve worked with over the years.

Daily Dozen – Women with their hair to one side

Today I was looking at photos and the first one my eyes fell upon was of a woman with her hair pulled to one side. That became today’s theme. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as easy as I’d hoped to find a dozen photos to fill the theme. With some hard work I was able to come up with 12 faces and I hope you’ll enjoy them.

Daily Dozen – Women I’ve Worked With

Two days without Daily Dozen sets. That’s not good. Yesterday I considered taking a hiatus but I like doing this too much to stop. What I need to do is prep sets so that when I am slammed I can still post. Some time I’ll try to do that. The thing is this is a pretty organic project. I like sitting down in the mornings to think about what I should include and so doing a batch at once feels unnatural.

When I started thinking about what to do today I was going to do men I’ve worked with; but then I realize that the last set was also of men and decided to go with women I’ve worked with. Being in PR means most of my colleagues over the years have been women so there were plenty of faces to choose from. I’ve been working for more than 20 years now but only photographing faces since 2008 so this is a pretty incomplete set. Of course even if I had taken one per year I’d have too many for a set so I suppose it all works out. There are a few photos from before 2008. It’s not as though I never took pictures, just not so many and few of faces. I hope you enjoy today’s faces. I liked (and in some cases currently like) working with these people.

Daily Dozen – Women and Water

A random idea today. Photographs of woman with water nearby. In some cases standing in front of a river, in others on a boat, in more with a water bottle at hand. I can’t say what led to this set but such is life. Hopefully you’ll enjoy the images.

Daily Dozen – Men with Sticks in Their Hands

Taking pictures of bands is a lot of fun. I love getting right up in front where it’s the loudest and shooting. Whenever I go back and look at my shots though I notice how rare it is to get drummers. They’re at the back of the stage and usually hidden behind their stuff. Today I decided to focus on drummers. I don’t have a ton of shots but I do have a dozen and here they are. Enjoy.
