Portraits for Rippld.com

The only thing more nerve-racking than photographing an awesome photographer is photographing two awesome photographer in one afternoon. Yet, that was precisely the challenge/opportunity I was presented with recently.

I was hired to photograph Trever Long (top) and Martin Shaouni for Rippld.com - a networking site for creative professionals. 

Trever is one of the coolest guys I've ever met. You'd never expect such moving work to come from such a humble, unassuming personality. Marvin is much the same way. A super nice guy completely unspoiled by his talent. Give both of these guys a look. As a matter of fact, they are both featured in a exhibition of music-related photography. It runs through the 28th of April. Click here for more info.
