Faces of MacPhail

The MacPhail Center of Music in Minneapolis is a client of mine going back several years now.  The last two years they have hired me to make some nice, straight-ahead portraits of their students, trying to show the range of experience the school handles.  From retired attorneys wanting to learn blues guitar, to Early-Child Development to Music Therapy for a broad-range of physical or mental ailments, MacPhail is well-equipped to bring the joy and gift of music to anyone seeking it out.  It's always a blast to photograph real people, not models or actors, sharing their personal expression with the camera.  As a very amateur guitarist myself, I can attest to the soothing, cathartic and positive effects playing an instrument can give.
