In early March, the ACLU will be launching an online store of tee-shirts, bags, hats, mugs and other accessories. I was hired to do the shoot. It’s a fantastic challenge to work on a project that’s being conceptualized and designed for the first time. It’s especially exciting when you’re working for an amazing non-profit like the ACLU.
Last week we spent 2 days shooting at my Chelsea studio. All of our models were ACLU employees or members of their families, so we were shooting “real people”. We shot them singly and in combinations and at the end of the 2 days we had 1400 terrific images, one broken lens and a lot of left over bagels.
Stay tuned for many more images and the launch of the store.
