I know it is weird when you mix work and personal, but for the most part, I love it.
Especially when I get to take portraits of close friends like James.
I met James when he came to work for me at Klein Buendel. He was quiet, but eventually – his wit and wry humor emerged. Like that time he dressed up as a parrot for Talk Like A Pirate Day.
OK, maybe his humor is obnoxious at times too.
But, he is also a great listener, good friend, and one of the smartest people I know.
It was his birthday over the weekend and we usually go out to celebrate, but I was in Park City for Evo.
Consider this your birthday card, James.
