This is it – the moment we’ve been waiting for. The time has finally come to release our newest conceptual portrait. We’ve blogged about this photo a tiny bit in the past, and will fill you all in on the details in the future, but we absolutely couldn’t wait to share this image.

Make sure to head over to our portfolio site to see the photo in its full-sized glory and keep watching the blog for a more in-depth look at what it took to make this picture. Any questions about the photo? Make sure to send them our way @crismanphoto on twitter or drop us a note in the comments. Enjoy!

Ten People I Dream of Photographing

Through photography, I have been very fortunate to meet and photograph some very special people. A few weeks ago I was able to cross one of the top-tens off my list… a photoshoot of 41 frames, six months in the making, and more than a few years planning in my mind. That’s all I can say about that shoot for now, but I promise we’ll write a post about the entire experience when we can share more next week.

For now though, I thought I should share my current top ten list, the 10 people that I would bend over backwards to photograph. So, if any of you know anyone on this list and want to make an introduction, I can promise a framed print, and a few cases of beer for your help.
