I recently had theÂ privilegeÂ to photograph Howard Stearn (No, not Howard Stern!). Â He and his wife, Courtney, are friends of mine through the East Carolina University Marching Band – Â Courtney has been the feature twirler for as long as I have been associated with ECU. Â Anyways, Howard is running for Greenville City Council as Member at Large. Â He wanted me to take his campaign pictures for him, and I was more than happy to spend time with the two of them. Â Courtney was a wonderful stylist for the shoot! Â She helped pick out all of the clothes, down to the shoes, as well as fully got him ready in the week approaching our scheduled afternoon session. Â We had such a fun time together and had lots of great laughs!
Howard works for a major construction company in town, so that’s the significance of the worksite location for part of the session. Â I even got to climb up into a backhoe to get some shots! Â (Boy, was that nerve-wracking.. I was so afraid I was going to push a button on accident or pull a lever in the wrong direction!)
I wish Howard the best of luck in his campaign; he could bring a new, refreshing set of ideas with him and that’s just what we need here in town! Â If he wins the vote in November, we’ll certainly have some celebrating to do. Â 🙂 Â I hope you enjoy these pictures!
