Graphis has recently announced the winners for their Photography Annual 2013 and we are very excited to share that Chris’s portrait of NFL quarterback Michael Vick was awarded the Graphis Platinum award – making the cut of top 10 out of the top 100 selected photos of the year. We are honored to be selected amongst the ranks of some of the best photographers in the business like Craig Cutler. I guess having the initials CC helps, but you’ll have to ask Craig to vouch for that.
You might remember back in 2011 we ran a series of blog posts about our experience shooting Michael Vick – from both Chris’s point of view, and the perspective of Jesse Southerland, a designer working for Philadelphia Magazine. If you haven’t read those accounts of our shoot, they’re worth it. We may have only had three minutes with the NFL superstar, but when you’re prepared it can be just enough time to make an award winning portrait.
Here it is – our latest conceptual portrait. Following in the style of Paper Airplanes, Dock Jumper, and Butterfly Girl, we’re excited to release the latest and greatest in our series of personal work.
The landscape may look familiar from our trip to California earlier this year – the dramatic views of the west coast definitely served as inspiration for this picture. Make sure to head over to our website and see the image full size. Also, keep reading for behind the scenes photos & insight into how this newest image came together…
