New work: ESPN The Magazine

espn_werre Kevin Love is having an historical season for the MN Timberwolves with his amazing knack for rebounding and scoring in double-digits. And one of the ways he's improved his statistics is Isaac Werre, his personal chef. ESPN The Magazine was running a piece about Isaac and needed a photo that spoke to his specialist line of work. We shot at the charming older rental house he lives in with his fiancee, and I had the classic photographer dilemma, "uh, this space is kinda small and plain, uh, what do I do?" Good ol' grid-lights to the rescue! I love how they sculpt a subject out of a staid, mundane background and into the point of interest. A hunk of raw beef also helps. You will be happy to know that brisket helped fuel KLove to a 14/10 against the Hornets that night.
