From Orange Portrait to Orange Cover

When I shot this portrait of Brandi Harris, senior at Chaparral High School, I didn't think it had a chance for cover of Las Vegas Weekly. Though I really liked the way the portrait turned out, and knew the story was going going to be the cover story for this week, I thought the actual cover would turn out to be a collage of images or an illustration of some sort. I was overly excited to say the least when I spied Weekly art director Ryan Olbrysh mocking up the cover last week with my portrait front and center. Below you can see how the original portrait looked and then see the final cover. Ryan did an amazing job. I will never get over having one of my photos printed on a large shiny piece of paper and distributed all over the city.
