This was an interesting assignment about SPD’s LEAD program (Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion). My job, in addition to taking portraits of the key voices in the piece, was to portray some of the seedier elements of Belltown and Pioneer Square. Great to work with Photography Director Anna Dickson and writer Saki Knafo. Seems like more online outfits are experimenting with commissioned photography these days- I’m definitely in support of that trend.
