Much Ado

Part of the charm of editorial work is you really never know how your photos will run until the paper ( or magazine) comes out. I've lost count on how many times my heart has been broken by postage stamps, below the folds, A9 in b&w or cropped beyond recognition. The boys above did not make the cover of Parade on Sunday. Regardless, they are still rockstars and new friends. Here are a few favorites from our shoot in May.

I know your pain too well. Sorry about the disappointment. Your work however, as always, is beautiful.

Normally I don't even open the bag with Parade in it, but I did on Sunday. How do you make the decision not to go with that blue cover?

Bummer about the cover! At least you got to kick it with some cool people, and make some wonderful photos.

VM, Thanks for checking Parade. I am not sure why they made the decision. It was out of my hands. Thanks Jennifer and Brian! Brian you are totally right, I got to meet some SUPER cool people out of this assignment. That's what it's all about!
