Executive Portrait Photography for Magazine Story

These are just a few of the magazine cover photography possibilities for Lore magazine.

Lore editor Tracey Velt contacted me from Florida about doing the photo-shoot for the cover story for the Magazine.
We talked about how to make an interesting dynamic magazine cover photograph that would stand out from the others.
The job was to photograph three executives who had amassed a great deal of real estate
and knowledge of the land business.  I had thoughts of photographing the three men at dusk against
the wide expanse of Rocky Mountain landscape.  And I traveled to several unique locations to scout out interesting vistas.
I thought about photographing the moguls at night against the bright-light cityscape or
in some exotic office tower.  I wanted to have my favorite make-up artist/stylist Suzanne Blons along and
I wanted everything to be perfect.
But when the day came for the photo-shoot one of the three executives could spare only one hour … at noon.
Sometimes professional photographer has to work fast and work under less than ideal circumstances.
But the three executives were a delight to work with and the results are, at least above par.

Two of the possibilities of photographs to be used for the Lore Magazine cover.

The magazine will of course use these executive portraits in color rather than black and white.

Carmella Magnelli – All Italian Parts! 

On a recent commercial photography trip to West Virginia for Antero Resources, I was lucky to fly into and out of Pittsburgh Pa.  And that meant I’d have a chance to see my 101 year old Aunt Carmella.

Still living at her home in Mckees Rocks Pennsylvania, Carmella Magnelli is cared for by her incredible son Francis.  My visit was short and very sweet but Carmella’s playful mood kept me smiling all the way back to Colorado.

At 72, cousin Francis (goes by Frank, but we always knew him has Francie) is committed to the task of taking care of his mother.  But he and she get a break from each other three times a week when Carmella goes to a day-care facility.  When I asked her who’s her favorite person at the care center, she pointed at finger at me and said with an elfin-like western Pa. accent -“YOU!”

She might not have known who I was even after I told her I am her brother’s son.  But it really didn’t matter.  She’s beyond worrying about silly details like who’s who.

Spry and strong at 101.

Larry and Carol Mizel

Denver People photography and portraits of Denver dignitaries would not be complete without two of the most gracious and royal couples — Larry and Carol Mizel.

We might have preferred more of a home/art feel to the portraits but the art direction required a white background.

But I love the results!
