All About the Benjamins
recently had the pleasure of photographing Benjamin Todd Jealous for Columbia Magazine
. Benjamin is the youngest ever national leader of the NAACP. Jorg was with him in Washington and had this to say:
He was a wonderful person to work with - so professional. First on location, and than in a prepared studio environment at the offices of the NAACP. The most important aspect of shoots like this is that you have to be completely prepared as there is only a short amount of time to photograph your subjects. And when I say photograph - it is more about making a personal connection with them. People don't respond to the camera - they respond to the photographer. It's always a challenge engage someone that in the limited time available.
