Black Lives Matter Rally portraits for KUOW 94.9

Had an incredible opportunity to photograph a Black Lives Matter rally for KUOW in April. My editor, Isolde Raftery, asked me to make portraits of attendees in a similar style to my personal work at a rally last spring for Donald Trump. It was great to meet so many dedicated and passionate people in the streets! Once again, I used my studio lighting outside and on-location to highlight the marchers and make portraits.
