In December 2022, I was commissioned by Curated to take portraits of 11 individualized experts across 3 states (Colorado, Arizona, and California). I traveled to 11 different cities (in 12 days) to photograph each expert in their home towns or in destinations they have a connection to. Subjects varied in expertise, from ski/snowboarding to cooking, golfing, and cycling.
Our aim was to capture both portraits and lifestyle images of each expert in a comfortable environment, without stylists, HMU, or any additional crew. I directed experts (not models) in those environments, and here's the result.
