Like what you see or bored at work? Check out more images here in my 2013 slideshow.
Although seeing the quality of the images I made in the last year isn’t always fun, remembering a lot of the photo shoots is extremely rewarding. Editing down the entire year’s professional work is tough, so it may be best to showcase some of the “-est” photo shoots.
The most stressful shoot was easily the portrait shoot of my boss’s boss’s boss’s boss, Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett. Luckily, the February weather was reasonable, Mr. Buffett was amiable and the cover shoot for our book came together in about 20 minutes.
The hottest shoot? The U.S. Senior Open was the most hot and humid time of the year. The golfers said that the Omaha County Club was the most hilly course on the tour. My fellow photographers lost a lot of weight that week. The upside is that some of us had plenty to lose.
The scariest person I photographed this year?
Ha. Just kidding, but that image has been seared into the back of my eyelids, so I thought I would share and we can start a support group.
The scariest person? Nikko Jenkins, who is being tried for multiple murders.
The hardest image for me to take was the woman made (in)famous by taking a selfie of her rush on to the field during the final game of the College World Series. It seems easy, but I had been blindsided by a baseball to the face earlier in the game. Luckily, there was no permanent damage. Unfortunately, it still hurt.
The cutest picture of the year is easy. It’s young Katelyn. I’ve spent quite a bit of time at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, and it’s always illuminating.
