Inside Bauer magazine for UH's Bauer College of Business--
As long as I work as a photographer, I don't think I'll tire of seeing my work in print. There isn't much more satisfaction, especially when the print form is an incredible (award-winning) magazine that features page after page of my work.
I introduced my work for Inside Bauer magazine in this blog after the Fall/Winter 2014 issue came out at the end of last year. That magazine was the second issue I had been published in, but the first issue to feature a large amount of my work after beginning my photography job at Bauer.
If you'd like to read the full issue of Inside Bauer, which I encourage you to do, click on the cover of the magazine. But also, scroll through the blog to see some of my favorite portraits that were featured in the magazine, as well as some that didn't make the cut. These portraits, in my opinion, are just as great, but there's never quite enough space to feature all of the great portraits in the magazine. Also, there are various links throughout the blog that lead you to websites of the amazing dean, students and entrepreneurs who make up Bauer College.
Latha Ramchand is the dean of the C.T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston. If you ever read through her blog or have the chance to hear her speak, you'll realize her passion for the students and the school in just a few short sentences.
My boss, Jessica Navarro, is someone you've seen featured quite a few times in my blog. We've worked together previously as fresh-out-of-college-newspaper-reporters at The Baytown Sun, and I've also photographed her family quite a few times.
For the National Association Women MBA's portrait session, we wanted a "Rosie the Riveter" look to portray powerful women. Our former graphic designer, Kari, did an awesome job of combining our two visions to make this look come to fruition.
Rakshak Talwar, of RaptorBird Robotics, is a incredible student in the Red Labs program at Bauer. He hasn't graduated or reached his 21st birthday and is already running a company.
With social media on the rise and becoming an integral part of all businesses now, Bauer hired social media coordinator, Carolyn Shaffer, who has become one of my best friends. We had a lot of fun during her portrait session, checking out the fun wall graphics installed around Bauer and then grabbing a cup of coffee and macarons at the best hangout on the University of Houston campus, The Nook Cafe. By the way, The Nook is just one of many businesses on campus and in the Houston area that are run by Bauer alumni.
Fola Lawson, of Southern Gents, was a really fun alumnus to coordinate with on a portrait session. He's the epitome of style and class, which is just what a Southern Gent should be. Not only does he work full time as an accountant, but he also runs a men's style blog and sells affordable men's accessories to dress up their suits.
In addition to portraits of all the wonderful people at Bauer, there is a small section at the end of the magazine featuring a few of our larger events. Wollfest (below) was my favorite event of the year. This event gives student entrepreneurs a small taste of what it's like to run a business in the food industry, and it's also a fun event for students across campus to attend, see a bit of Bauer work and enjoy some wonderful food.
Thanks for checking out Inside Bauer. A lot of hard work goes into the magazine by our amazing Office of Communication team. On top of that, a lot of awards are won by our team and this magazine, so we're proud to share it with you.
