Creatives Project – David Carson

011-small

I still remember my college roommate bringing a copy of Ray Gun Magazine home one day and how we pored over its pages  – wondering both why couldn’t we read the text and in the next second, marveling at how brilliant it was.  These first issues of Ray Gun were designed by the legendary David Carson and I’ve loved his work ever since.  I’m honored I was able to photograph him.  Though I am not a designer, I like to feel his own independent spirit has inspired me along the way.

It’s fitting I also got to photograph him the weekend Apple named him as one of their 30 Most Influential Mac Users on their 30th anniversary.

I was lucky enough to recently get the plum assignment of shooting 12 of Seattle’s top innovators for the January issue of City Arts – their Future List. The artists and innovators included Joselynn Tokashiki Engstrom, Gifted Gab, Linas Phillips, Aaron Huey, Markeith Wiley, Sharon Arnold, Justin Huertas, Sam Anderson, Olivia McCausland, Alex Osuch aka DJAO, Matthew Parker, and Jeri Ellsworth.

It was a lot of work in getting all the portraits shot but it was an amazing experience getting the opportunity to meet and work with these incredibly talented people.

We shot tons of images for this and, of course, lots of good images get left behind. I’ve included some of my favorite outtakes below. Check out the images that ran in the magazine, on newsstands now or online here!
