Like a lot of photographers I've been asked to include video on assignments (for clients like John Deere, DePaul University and Reader's Digest) and while I like the ability to tell a story with motion I still prefer the process of putting all that I can into a single image. I started thinking about simple, visually interesting stories that might be somewhere in the middle and came up with this narrative I've called "Homecoming." Writing, scouting, casting, shooting and post production took three months and we shot this over the course of three days this past Fall.
Special thanks to Scott for his exceptional post work, to Sue for her dedication and set building skills, to Amy and Dan for the use of their farm and station wagon, to Danette and Sam for letting me wrangle them
into this and especially to Sawyer (and his parents) who's sweet little soul brought this to life.
Thanks for watching,
