My second Downbeat cover of the year was of Brian Blade and his Fellowship band. They played and Earshot jazz concert at the Seattle Art Museum and I had them in the studio for a portrait session the day before. They were wonderful to photograph and I loved hearing their music.
Brian is an exceptional musician.
The Seattle Photographer blog of corporate and editorial photography has been redesigned and moved to be hosted at www.danielsheehan.com/blog. As this is the last post to this blog of the editorial, corporate and commercial photographer Daniel Sheehan, I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to visit. The Seattle Photographers old blog will remain up for the time being. Below is a recent post to the new blog showing off the new typeface it is using as well as a recent executive portrait.
Graphic artist and designer Michael Strassburger co-founder of Seattle Design Studio Modern Dog needed a new head shot and I was tapped for the task. How do you impress a modern dog designer? Not sure but he liked this look made 100% of natural light. It was a little intimidating since Strassburger is one of the powerhouse designers behind Seattle based Modern Dog. “Their heady mix of intuitive design, cheeky humor and punk rock aesthetics has made them unique among design firms, and a hell of a lot of fun. Their work is often seen in the rock poster arena, but they cover a much larger social terrain and their clients include K2 Snowboards, Blue Q, Coca-Cola, Swatch and Nordstrom.

I am often called upon to make large group portraits an it is always a challenge to make them look great with everybody in the picture looking good with their eyes open and a good expression. It is a challenge just arranging every body and then getting their attention. Since I try to do one every time I shoot a wedding, I have developed a skill at large group portraits. I usually have a lot of fun and the people do too. And then everyone gets a great picture with all of their co workers or friends or family. This was a San Francisco Wedding at a restaurant and we moved some tables and chairs and got everyone in the photo.

For an assignment for The Chronicle of Higher Education last week I photographed Sunil K. Aggarwal, above, who is in his final year of an M.D.-Ph.D. program at the University of Washington. They were running an article on him because of his efforts to convince the American Medical Association to help get marijuana reclassified as a drug with medical benefits.
” For more than 30 years, the federal government has classified marijuana as a highly dangerous drug with no medical uses, and for more than a decade, the American Medical Association has endorsed that classification. But this month, the association called on the government to reconsider the drug’s current status alongside heroin and LSD, and to consider its medicinal potential.” from the article by Katherine Mangan in The Chronicle of Higher Education.
I had to photograph a chair for a furniture designer and importer for a marketing campaign and decided to approach it much the same way I would approach making a portrait of a person. I wanted to show off its best side and have some of its personality come through. Both the client and I were happy with the resulting picture.
