I recently had the privilege of meeting the owner and CEO of Mr. Rekey and doing some portraits for some new editorial’s coming out about his business. Jonathan Garza Photography also did some internal work for them doing photos of some of their workers and their full uniforms, showing how to be properly dressed for the job. The owner and workers were very nice and easy to photograph. I will be working with their team more in the future this is what my contact their said about the photos “I was VERY happy with the results and I really appreciate your time with this project” Cris. Heres a few examples of the commercial portraits/headshots and some of the environmental portraits I did for their team.
I recently was blessed to get to take an editorial portrait for 12 loaves magazine. At the Austin ARCH the center for the homeless. The Austin Portrait was focusing on Elena Davis a former model. Here is the right up from Real Issues magazine Here is the I am Waters Website
“HOUSTON — A former model is using the images of local veterans to help fight poverty and homelessness.
Elena Davis’ face has graced the cover and pages of some of the world’s top fashion magazines but now she’s behind the lens and the woman behind I Am Waters.
The Houston-based organization delivers bottled water to homeless people across America.
She was in Houston Thursday taking photos of veterans who are currently staying at the Midtown Terrace. The Midtown Terrace is run by the U.S. Vets Houston.
“How do you justify having someone who has fought for our country to be homeless?” Davis said. “There are a lot of preconceived notions as to who the homeless are, so we photograph the homeless and we use those images on our website, on our community outreach.”
It’s a passion for the former model. Davis said she grew up nearly homeless herself.
“I think it’s interesting because I don’t look like where I came from, and so I think people are always kind of surprised,” she said.
And that’s the point. Davis said the homeless aren’t who you think they are.
And through I Am Waters she hopes to educate and hydrate people.”
