The University of Richmond is an inexorable part of the cultural fabric of Richmond. And it’s always a treat when the university in my childhood backyard turns into a client.
I partnered with Samantha Tannich from the UR in-house creative team for this project showcasing a mash-up of disciplines using real students as subjects.
I probably photograph real people more than I do models, and there is always that bit of the unknown that I enjoy – the challenge of making someone comfortable in a short amount of time.
The University of Richmond student subjects were assigned to us and other than the concept, I had no idea who was going to show up on set or what they would look like.
Surprise! It’s a swimmer/fine arts major!
Surprise! It’s a music major/equipment manager for the football team!
Real people, old friends, cool project.
