This week brought a new track shoot with Austin for Pace Magazine. Look for these images and more in the upcoming Summer 2017 Issue.
It’s never wise to mix with religion with business. You’re going to eventually alienate someone. For this reason, I rarely bring up the fact that my father was a baptist minister. This week, when I was given an assignment to photograph Rev. Darian Blue of the Nicholtown Baptist Church, It didn’t take long for Darian to figure out I was a “P.K.” (Preacher’s Kid). We see the ins and outs of a church community in a way most never do. We quickly sparked up a conversation about the many names given to ministers. My father was fondly addressed as reverend, doctor, preacher, and “preach” among others. Rev. Blue’s favorite was “Chap”, a name given to him by local inmates while serving God within the prison system. My dad would have chuckled at that one…no doubt.
