James Drury, of the TV western The Virginian, made a stop in Effingham and Decatur last Friday. I photographed him before and after an appearance with WAND, a local TV station. After taking more portraits in three months than I did in my entire college career I’m starting to get used to the fast paced nature that most of my news portraits fall into.
The location wasn’t ideal, so I tried to go for something more natural instead of a posed shot and this was the result. It was taken during the interview process with Herald & Review reporter Bob Fallstrom.
