John Marshall Medal in Law Gala

For years I have had the pleasure of working with the John Marshall Foundation. I believe I have done photography for the Foundation since it began with it's Teacher Awards years ago. Over the years I have gotten to know some wonderful people through my work for JMF. Recently, JMF held a Gala to give the John Marshall Medal in Law to a distinguished jurist who lives up to the ideals of John Marshall. This year they honored former Chief Justice of the Virginia Harry L. Carrico. The author David Baldacci was one of the presenters for the evening. Also in attendance was a large group of Justice Carrico's former law clerks, as well as descendants of John Marshall.

Marshall University Fife & Drum open the evening.

A Look Back at Fall 2010

Photography of Daniel DiCaprio Recent Work

It has been awhile since I updated my postings, so here we go. First thing is to introduce and show off the work of Daniel DiCaprio. I photographed his recent work in the Fall and was very taken by his sculptural pieces. Here are two wall hung pieces done in October, which I believe he created for a gallery in New York. The black glossy finish and small metal texturing were a challenge, but it was fun to see what the lighting would do.
