Drawing inspiration from one of photography’s most amazing portfolios, the “American West Series” shot by Richard Avedon, I am embarking on a project called Faces of One Spark - a portrait project.
In this project, I am attempting to capture as many portraits of Creators, Attendees and Volunteers at the ONE SPARK festival in Jacksonville, FL from April 7-11, 2015. Much like Avedon's portraits, mine will also be shot on a white backdrop, catching the subject in various posed and non-posed moments. These pseudo-improvisational headshots will be a great way to capture the diverse subset of the One Spark culture.
I have worked very closely with the University of North Florida Marketing and Publications department as well as the Admissions group. We have collaborated on some great projects like the 2012 Republican Presidential debate, articles for various Alumni and Student publications, and most recently the 2013 Admissions view book distributed to prospective incoming students. In 2010 I completed a rebranding project for Florida Center for Advanced Aeronautical Projects or FCAAP. This is a collaboration between Aeronautical engineering departments ant Florida State University, University of Florida, University of Central Florida and Embry Riddle University
