This April I was hired by the University of Arizona Foundation to photograph one of their successful alumnus. The concept was to photograph the alumnus, Anton Anderson, showing his lifestyle now, as a successful business man.
The photograph would appear with a snapshot of why he chose UofA and the success he had achieved after graduation. The feature is called “Ten by Ten” since each year they choose ten successful alumni ten years after graduating and tell their story. Each of the alumni are also generous donors to the school.
This assignment was especially poignant for me since my father, who has long passed away, was a University of Arizona alumnus. In addition, at one time in his life he was a freelance editorial photographer himself. This was special.
The images below show the original photograph taken at Sunset Beach on Treasure Island, the article and published image and the cover of Arizona Alumnus Magazine, spring/summer 2012 addition in which the article appears.
