02 Feb Hudson New York Author Portrait | Chloe Caldwell
A little rain didn’t stop me or my wonderful subject, author Chloe Caldwell who bravely ventured and indulged my photo safari in the gray, 45 degree misty day for an hour or two. On assignment for Chronogram Magazine I met up with Chloe at her place for her author portrait and we walked for a couple of miles, exploring Hudson all the while photographing. One of the best parts of photographing authors is that they make some of the best subjects to talk to, never a lull in the conversation. Most authors however do not like the camera much. Chloe was different in this regard, she had both the gift of conversation and a certain self assuredness that as we walked and talked the portraits kind of made themselves. Hudson as a backdrop was fun and the damp inclement weather made for a softer feel. When I got back to the office and and uploaded the files to my computer I was knocked out at how many shots we had done, and more interestingly how many I really liked. Chronogram usually runs one or at most two author portrait images, so I thought everyone might like a look at what I got, there were more but I narrowed it down to these. Thanks Chloe for making my job easy, it was great talking and spending an hour or two in the rain with you.
