photography, random thought, writing

cover shoot

a few weeks ago i had a cover shoot for american motorcyclist magazine.  the subject was Mike Kraft, an iraq war vet, with a true love for motor bikes.

now, i’ve never been a huge fan of motorcycles, but i whole-heartedly identify with the individuality and love of the open road associated with bikers.  i’ve always said that i feel most at home in the mountains, but a close second is on the road.

Mike was a real pleasure to work with, and the type of thoughtful, strong individual that inspires confidence in the folks we have overseas.  he and i talked quite a bit about the middle east, and global politics.  he gave me some advice about my trip to lebanon, which is coming up in a few weeks.  and i’m very excited that i’ll get to test that advice very soon…
