Heroes of Leidos. DC company veteran portraits

Awesome project alert! One of my clients invited me into something special this fall. They wanted help producing the visual side of their annual project that honors the veterans on their team. Leidos has been doing this Heroes of Leidos project for a number of years but this is the first time they hired a professional photographer to tell this story. In the past, they relied on photos supplied by the veterans they profiled. You’ll see some of those pictures in the profile stories below. Those photos give great context to their military service but they are missing aspects of their lives now which helps make the connection from serving in the military to joining the Leidos team. Our goal was to highlight each veterans honorable choices and I think we nailed it! I created some visual themes that unified our series and I provided location options for each portrait. With DC in our backyard, the options that aligned with our message were plentiful.  I couldn’t be happier with the results. We decided to highlight 6 veterans in all and you can see all my portraits in the looping slideshow on the Heroes of Leidos page.

Many thanks to Ed and his team for showing the value of great photography on this project and getting it off the ground. They created a a beautiful and responsive display to highlight our pictures. Nany thanks to Moses (below) for spending a Friday evening with me and Ed and helping us make one of my favorite photos of the series.

DC National Prayer Gathering for McLean Bible Church

DC national prayer gathering

What a great project! I really enjoyed capturing 5000 people coming together to be unified and pray for God to use them to live out His love in DC. When I first heard about the upcoming National Prayer gathering, I knew it would be important to tell the story of this big event. McLean Bible Church was one of the 100’s of churches involved but they were also the church that made the biggest push to organize and facilitate the event. I reached out to my contacts there with whom I’ve worked in the past and suggested that they hire me to cover it so they could get the story out to news agencies worldwide and to use the images to get other people and churches involved in future events like this. As a photojournalist I knew I could capture the images that news organizations would publish. I also knew they would trust the authenticity of the images since I hold to the same code of journalism ethics as their organization or agency. I reached out to my contacts at newspapers and wire services and they ran the photos that same day. I’ve really enjoyed working with McLean Bible Church on various projects because they are loving our city in very tangible ways.

Dragons rule the National Cherry Blossom Kite Festival

I had a picnic with my wife in the sunshine on the National Mall. It felt like vacation and it was wonderful. In a way that is exactly what it was, a vacation from the chilly grasp of winter which may last for another 7 months. Now that’s my kind of vacation! I don’t know of anywhere else you can go and catch 200 kites in flight. The National Cherry Blossom Kite Festival is a must do activity for any Washingtonian.

He helped support the Fit Kids Act which just passed yesterday and was up here to celebrate and continue to raise awareness about the importance of exercise and healthy living.
