Portrait photography of executives is always a blast.   And with each business head-shot, I get to learn a little my client’s world.  After making billions for the Corning company,  Mark Newhouse has moved to Colorado in search of new challenges.  Mark’s an incredibly interesting guy.  Our conversation was lively.  And when the photo-shoot was done, I wanted to keep listening and talking over a beer.

Incredible Century-Stone for a Feisty Woman

.

When WPX Energy told me they were sending me to Canonsburg, Pennsylvania for a commercial photo-shoot I was pleased.  But when I googled the town, I nearly jumped out of my chair.  Canonsburg is just 20 miles from Ohio Valley Hospital where I was born.   And I would get to visit my 100 year old aunt Carmella.

 

Being 100

Carmella remains as brave and engaged as ever.  But I found myself wondering if she really remembered who I was.  In her younger years she traveled often to Colorado for visits.  And I remember dancing with her many times during family events.  I must have been about 8 when she showed up unexpectedly at our front door.  At 4’11” she was still taller than me, so giving her a hug at the door was natural.  Then I got to make the announcement: “Hey mom, dad, guess who’s here?”

Carmella lives with her son Francis who cares for her.  As I sat at the kitchen table with cousins, Francis, Donna, Glue (Kristen) and Steven, I was amazed at the resilient fortitude of a remarkable woman.  Then she looked at me and said ” So…. you finally lost those …”  the word curls eluded her as she twirled her finger near her ear.  And I knew that she remembered me and my hipper hair days.

At the commercial photography job in Pennsylvania, I couldn’t believe how much fun I was having.  WPX Energy had me do some executive portraits a few months ago.  They liked the work so much to send me to Pa. for some field photography.  Here are a just a few of my favorites.

Commercial Photographer Edward DeCroce

I’m always looking for a different perspective.  And if I had a dollar for every time I wished I owned a jet pack or a cherry picker, I’d be rich.

.

Elevating the camera perspective just 10 feet can make the difference between a mediocre shot and a winning photo.  And I bet I’m not the only professional photographer who wishes his legs could extend like a tripod.  In fact I’d wager that every commercial photographer, every advertising photographer and every fine-art photographer has at one time or another climbed higher to get the shot.

 

While on commercial assignment for WPX Energy last week in Pennsylvania, my trusted guide and chauffeur Susan Oliver-Stough captured this shot with her iphone as I worked from the roof of her truck.
