BH: Now that you’re back to freelancing, what are your goals/dreams for the future?
DM: I really have to update my website and portfolio. I haven’t touched either in almost three years! Pretty terrible.
Longer term, I want to stay true to my creative vision and make strong interesting work that continues to evolve with me. I’d also like to do more editorial shooting in addition to the commercial photography.
BH: Apart from commercial photography, what kind of photographs do you really love to create?
DM: I love to make images of people; photos that are a bit odd, fantastical, unguarded, slightly off and maybe even a bit melancholic.
BH: Okay, now for bragging rights. What are some past awards or publications that you’re proud of?
DM: Communication Arts Design Annual 2005 and 2008; the Clio Award – Bronze Innovative Advertising 2008; The Kelly Award – Spread Winner 2008 for Geek Squad; and Luerzers Archive, Showcase – Pearl Izumi, 2007.
My images have been published in Photo District News – “Calling The Shots," August 2007; Creativity Magazine, February 2008; The Denver Post, “Image Conscious," January 08, 2006; and in Colorado 24/7 Extraordinary Images from an Extraordinary State, 2003.
