Here are a couple of photos I recently shot of Air Force Lieutenant Frances Dixon for the Tufts University alumni magazine. The photos were taken just outside Las Vegas near Creech Air Force Base. I wasn't allowed anywhere near the base so we decided to take the photo out in the desert. She was responsible for flying the unmanned drone aircraft and had recently flown several humanitarian missions over earthquake damaged Haiti. She was a very interesting and accomplished person who shoulders a tremendous amount of responsibility.
Les Grossman is a longtime concert promoter and entertainment executive who has worked with acts like The Who and Led Zepplin. He is such an interesting guy that he is portrayed by Tom Cruise in the movie Tropic Thunder. He lives on the edge of Vegas, so I decided to meet him at his home for the photo. I took a bunch of photos, but liked these the best because of a the great light you get at night in Las Vegas when the city's lights bounce off the clouds.
