Although I started my career as a photojournalist, my work these days is more frequently of a commercial nature. “Dudes in suits” is how I usually phrase it.
I love this work, and facing the challenge of a cranky Vice President of Sales or CEO with a tight schedule and distrust of photographers is a greater challenge than chasing lions on the Serengeti. (Or at least it requires more tact and creative lighting engineering.)
But every once in a while I get to do a corporate job that feels like journalism, and that feels like heaven – with water guns and rapids.
