David McCullough

Client: The Corcoran
Production Company: Magic Goggles

I recently had the privilege to work with both the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the National Gallery shooting David McCullough for the Corcoran’s new exhibit, American Journeys – Visions of Place. Couldn’t have asked for cooler clients, and Mr. McCullough is a class act all the way – in addition to being absolutely brilliant!

The shoot was pretty straightforward; I used a light soft hair light off the frame to the left, and keyed him with the Kino Diva pushed through a 4×4 grid cloth.

Here’s what the Chief of Exhibitions at the National Gallery had to say about it:

“Thrilling! I cannot begin to tell you all how impressed I am with David McCullough’s authoritative introduction to American Journey – Visions of Place… It accomplishes everything I hoped for: a pithy, thoughtful, almost worshipful paean to the Corcoran’s great collection – through the eyes and mind of America’s most beloved historian. Your visitors will take note, I am confident!”
