I thought this was fitting as my first post. I was fortunate enough to be asked to do a CD cover for one of my favorite jazz musicians Jack Dejohnette. This was actually a New Age CD designed for his wife Lydia to use in her massage therapy. Exactly one hour long. The one requirement he had was to use his daughter Farah, who is an amazing horse trainer, in the photo. I photographed her with with my old Polaroid 195 scanned the negative from the Polaroid and combined it with a water refraction photo that existed in my archives. Gave it a blue tone. He loved it and didn't change a thing. The CD was nominated last year for a Grammy. BTW his new CD Peacetime was nominated this year and won!
