Some of my personal favorite photographs are the ones I've taken before the subject of the assignment has arrived, or ones I've taken while scouting the location. They are the photographs of clients and assistants that I've politely asked, told or tricked into standing in for a "TEST SHOT". I cherish the best of these photographs as mementos of collaborations, colleagues and friends.
Ben's one of my favorite subjects. While on assignment for BC Business, he and I met at the location early to scout and he willingly stood in for the test shots. Ben's a great sport and these are two of my favorites.
