Over the course of more than four years, I had an ongoing project with a large law firm based in Kansas City.
Eventually, I worked my way through all of their many offices creating portraits of their most valuable partners. To date, I have completed more than 70 individual portrait sessions.
I’ve been to every office more than once and after more than six sessions in Kansas City, I stopped counting my trips.
Every session was an education. I say that because these people are extremely interesting. I can’t think of a single session that wasn’t enjoyable.
I’m not going to pretend that I don’t have a favorite. Because the portrait above was by far my favorite. The subject is Adrienne Clair and the location is Federal Energy Regulatory Commission headquarters in Washington, D.C.
There were some other runners-up that were very memorable.
-An attorney in Omaha who is as handsome as any male model that I’ve met.
-An attorney in Kansas City who is a T.S. Eliot scholar.
-An attorney in Wichita that was both a licensed pilot and also a licensed aviation mechanic.
I’ll need seven more blog entries to catalog the rest of unexpected experiences that I had creating for this firm.
