My cover shots for Hearing Loss Magazine

5 08 2011

I design and produce the bimonthly Hearing Loss Magazine for the Hearing Loss Association of America. I also provide photographic services and have shot 23 covers to date. (There is one more in production right now. Stay tuned, it’s going to be a super one—our first concept cover ever!). While anyone visiting this blog knows that I love photographing flowers and bugs and such, you might not know that equally love photographing people.

I’m looking forward to Cindy’s latest idea, even if it’s buggy. 🙂 Thanks to her, to you, Bkelley, and to the many contributors for efforts in making sure that HLAA has a magazine which is at once classy, professional, informational and enormously interesting to read.

Very nice — and what great portraits! (I didn’t know you shot people too!)
LOVED your previous post on the leaf castings, too — I grow elephant ears and have for years passed them along to all my friends, so i can’t wait to try this and give them as presents — they are gorgeous!!

Cindy, your portraits are wonderful. They capture the person inside so beautifully. Lovely stuff.

Thanks, Betty! I was photographing people long before I learned I had a green thumb! Ask my family—they’ve been targets of mine ever since my dad loaned me his Yashica when I was high school senior year. My yearbook teacher needed someone to cover a football game (and I’m not a fan!), so I volunteered. My dad gave me a list of do’s and don’ts and I promised to take care of the camera. After my prints (b&w) came back, they were spot on…you would have thought I was vying for Sports Illustrated fame! (Beginner’s luck, I promise you). It was the first roll I had ever shot with a 35mm camera. I was hooked. Then the next roll sucked, but I was already riding high on the comments on my first roll. My dad never got his camera back…and the rest is history!

Re: leaves…I’d love to see your results if you care to share. And if you have any questions on the process, just holler!

It helps to have creative freedom, which you give me—for that I am eternally grateful!
