If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably already know that recently Boo has come to live with me. She is my co-pilot, my seeing eye dog and activities director here at Steven St. John Photography. Just say go and she is ready.

Recently I had my first assignment for AARP Bulletin, a publication I really respect because they have been working with some wonderful photographers and producing interesting and innovative journalism under the thoughtful direction of picture editor Michael Wichita. For this particular shoot, AARP was having one photographer in each state make a portrait of a subject and then ask them a few questions about the economy. The catch was it had to be done with my phone and processed using Instagram. Like I said, interesting and innovative. I was cool to be included along with a number of my photo friends and acquaintances, but I think my favorite photo from the series (so far) was composed by Ian C. Bates, a student at Ohio University. I can’t get a direct link to that picture, so you’ll just have to follow the whole project on Twitter or on Instagram.
Finally, big thanks to my subject Daniel Espalin for taking the time to talk with me and allowing me to photograph him as a winter storm rolled into town.
I know, I know, it has been a long time since I posted on this blog. I’ll try to post more often in 2013 – not a resolution, just something I need to do.
Here is a portrait shoot I had recently for The Chronicle of Higher Education, one of my favorite clients. You can read the entire article by clicking here. Big thanks to Rose and Erica for being wonderful editors. Also, thanks to the James Kelly Contemporary Art Gallery for letting us shoot in their space. There are some outtakes available for licensing on my archive.
Last year, I was commissioned to create a series or portraits for Albuquerque Economic Development, Inc., a private, non-profit corporation that helps promote and recruit local businesses for use on their new website. I was trilled when they asked to do it again this summer. Above are a few of my favorite resulting pictures. Thanks for looking!
