Thank you to Leslie dela Vega for hiring me for my first shoot for The New York Times, and talking about me in a recent interview for PDN called 'Who I've Hired". I have to shout Leslie out for believing in my abilities and taking a chance on someone she hadn't worked with before. Here are a few outtakes from that first shoot, portraits of Scott McComb, the chief executive of Heartland Bank, photographed for a story about bankers who supported Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election. You can find Leslie's work here.
