my first cover

This job came about very quickly last month through a friend's referral. The assignment was to provide the photography for School Band and Orchestra magazine's feature article on Andy Soucy, music director at Londonderry (NH) High School. Both Andy and I were pleasantly surprised (almost shocked) by this--I graduated from LHS and benefited greatly from the music program, which has only grown over the years.

Spending time at the school was a bit surreal, of course, but the return was made easier by seeing some former teachers (who remembered me!). I photographed one of Andy's bands in rehearsal and later some portraits. The photographs chosen for the cover and the article are mine, except the ones of the marching band in action.

Every part of this experience has been great, thanks to Andy and the staff of SBO.
