In early March I had the pleasure of heading north to photograph Cody Sifford for a Winds of Change magazine shoot. The Pohly Company out of Boston, Massachusetts had contacted me to shoot images of Cody who was their cover feature (along with a story inside). I always love doing editorial work (to hearken back to my photojournalism background), so I was super excited to hear how eager the Pohly Company was to work with me on this shoot.
Thankfully our shoot date didn’t get rained or snowed out due to the wet weather we’d been experiencing, so I met up with Cody to make some cover-worthy portraits to go along with his magazine feature. He was so great to work with despite being understandably a little nervous (magazine cover – no pressure, right?!), and was game to tromp around with me in search of cool locations, even though we had to wander through some mud puddles to get to the best spots.
As their description says on their website, “Winds of Change is the premier nationally distributed magazine published with a single-minded focus on career and educational advancement for American Indians/Alaska Natives/Native Hawaiians/First Nations, with an emphasis on STEM.”
Which is pretty cool, don’t you think? It was great meeting up with Cody and hearing more about his story as well, which you can read about in the latest Spring issue (scroll down to read Cody’s story, or you can read the entire magazine on the Winds of Change website).
Below I’ve included images from the magazine piece as well as other favorite images I made that didn’t end up in the publication. Enjoy! Thanks again to Winds of Change and Cody for a wonderful shoot!
On the docket: more editorial work and portraits! Stay tuned!
