Sometimes photoshoots with more than 2 or 3 people can be like herding cats, but they can be so much fun, as this particular one was for Kansas City Magazine. I was grateful to work with writer Michael Alberty who recommended me for this story on winemakers and owners from Kansas. I think we were all surprised that we were able to gather as many as we did. Only Ed King from King Estates was not able to join us.
The art director from Kansas City Magazine wanted the group shot to be taken outdoors. Unfortunately, the winter weather in Oregon was not accommodating so I had to find a place that I would be able to have an indoor alternative. Brad McLeroy owner of and winemaker for Ayres Winery agreed to host us.
Even though it was raining, I did make everyone stand outside for a portrait that was not used. I can’t believe how long the dog just there , he was like a professional model! Meanwhile, I had a hard time with the people to stay focused on the job at hand!
