Shaun Fenn: Boy Genius

Shaun Fenn is a photographer that Archibald and I have worked with in the past. He is one motivated mofo. He came to photography late in life but sure is making up for lost time. When we started working together he asked me how he should promote himself to magazines. I mentioned that most editors were in New York and that he should schlep his book around. 10 days later he was on a plane. While driving to a job together he mentioned he and his kids went mountain biking in Lake Tahoe and decribed all the armour the riders wore. I said that sounded like it might make some cool images. Three days later he was up on the mountain shooting portraits. Now he has really hit it out of the park with this set of images inspired by the Adam and Eve motif.

I shot this portrait of a golfer suffering from clinical depression last week.

I sent out an editorial mailing today. One magazine called Concrete News. WTF? I am also targeting the other end of the market with a new Archive ad.

Polaroids in a hotel room

We had to rent a hotel room for a few hours for a shoot yesterday. As we were packing up I turned around and saw the trash can full of polaroids. There are worse ways to make a living.
