Politicking … photographically speaking
I was recently hired by a political consulting firm to photograph Jennifer Webb, currently running for Madison County Circuit Court Clerk. The photos will be used to update her website, fill up mailers and for general publicity/press releases.
The shoot would take place in Richmond, Ky., about two hours south of Louisville. It was an early start, with photos beginning at 9 a.m., so I left the house around 6:30 to give myself plenty of time.
We had a schedule to keep and a long list of photos we had to have by the end of the day. The day was cold, but sunny for most of the morning, which turned out to be the hardest part of the shoot. Jennifer was a trooper. We needed the photos to look Springy, so we only let her wear a jacket on one location. I was standing there with two sweaters on, so I felt a little guilty, but she soldiered on.
We wrapped around 5:30 that evening, finishing with family photos at Jennifer’s home. Then I still had to drive back and process the images. Of course, the consulting firm needed the images the next day, so it was a long night. We ended up with just over 50 images including the image above. Cheers.
