Lighting test, Monster Mark Winnie, assistant. Editorial photoshoot for IBM Systems magazine by Portland, Oregon commercial and editorial photographer, William Bragg.

Magazine photography

Most of us think of the magazines we see at the supermarket checkout, book stores or the subscriptions we receive at home, and of course, the Publishing Clearing House sweepstakes 😉 .  So mentioning I just did a photoshoot for Car & Driver magazine is more easily recognizable  for most people. But a lot of the magazines for which I end up being hired are industry and trade magazines. I’ve just finished photo shoots for US Bank Reserve magazine and IBM Systems magazine in the last couple of weeks.

This photo is from a lighting test while shooting for IBM magazine. The subject is none other than “Monster” Mark Winnie, the biggest sweetheart you’ve ever met – and the living, breathing example of “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”. Mark is not one of my regular assistants, but a good friend. When my assistant got nailed with the flu over the weekend prior to the shoot, Mark graciously helped me out.
