Editorial Photography...Buffalo Spree “Film in Western New York” IssuePosted on March 31, 2015
Chris Schobert, the guest editor for the Buffalo Spree film issue, is universally regarded as a really nice guy and a quite astute film critic. I decided to photograph Chris in two different styles and let the magazine decide which image was preferable. First, I shot Chris examining a portion of a film -- a vintage porn movie, garbage picked some 30 years ago and doubtlessly PG by today’s standards. Then, moving a bit outside his comfort zone, I shot Chris wrapped and wound in celluloid. The resulting images provide unexpected insight into the intensity that lies just below his mild-mannered demeanor.
