Kent Mayor Suzette Cooke for Cityvision Magazine
I am happy to share this recently published shoot!
Back in late October, I photographed Kent Mayor Suzette Cooke for one of my favorite clients, Cityvision Magazine. It’s a beautiful, smartly designed publication covering local governance and the decisionmakers in our community.
I was assigned to photograph Mayor Cooke, a former recreational mountaineer, for a story connecting her past experiences with recent success guiding the city. She was a great sport, and anytime I can make a business portrait either outside or in a unique environment, is a success in my book. I photographed her in the courtyard outside of Kent City Hall. The mayor’s boots, crampons and hiking axe were an interesting contrast to her purple suit — and made for some neat pictures.
Here is another tearsheet from the December issue.
Thanks for looking!
