The new "Spring" quarter (in quotations, as there is still snow on the ground) hit the ground running with a simple portrait assignment for my People Illustration class.
In the past three years, the term "simple portrait" has taken on a developing meaning for me. It used to be just beautiful light and flattering pose. Now it's developed into not only accomplish the latter, but also communicating some kind of story about the subject.
This is Carter Kegelman. A native of Cooperstown, Carter is finishing up the Visual Media program at RIT, with a list of notable previous experience including the National Baseball Hall of Fame and another degree from Saint Lawrence University.
For me Carter represents a potential editorial subject, something that is part of a "young industry movers and shakers to watch" feature in print. His goal in life (owning an advertising agency) is uniquely refreshing, and with his knowledge of both the photo world and the computer world - great things are to come.
