I usually get a few national jobs each year, meaning clients outside of Kentucky who need photos inside Kentucky. I did a job back in August for Bucknell University, located in Pennsylvania, on one of their alums, Kevin Fitzgerald, who now lives in Central Kentucky. He blew the whistle on the company he worked for at the time for faulty design of automotive airbags. It ultimately triggered the largest safety recall in automotive history. I photographed him at Jacobson Park in Lexington.
I've said this before, there's something special about making the cover of a magazine. I've always told the editors of Kentucky Living Magazine that if a photographer ever tells you that they don't care about making the cover, then you should fire them, because that means they're either lying to you or they're not passionate enough about their work! I didn't know how Bucknell would treat the photos in their alumni magazine, but turns out I made the cover. That was a nice surprise!
