Heroes of the 500 – Arnold Harvey
I was contacted in May by Waste Management requesting a portrait of one of their employees for an upcoming feature in both People and Fortune Magazines. Arnold Harvey, driver of 24 years for WM was recently nominated for the Fortune 500’s “Heroes of the 500” for his non profit ‘God’s Connection Transition‘ that supports over 5000 families a month with donations of clothing, food and services. Additionally, he recently started a ‘Let’s Ride’ program that donates used bicycles to low income youths.
This entire shot was shot, edited and delivered within 4 hours- they were on a very tight deadline! I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. This portrait was taken on site in Gaithersburg MD with a mix of studio strobes and natural light. Stay tuned for a behind the scenes look at this shoot.
Fortune ended up using the first photo below as a cover photo for the entire feature! The second wider shot was used for Arnold’s individual profile.
People Magazine ended up going with an alternate portrait seen below.
It was a pleasure working with the team at Waste Management and Arnold Harvey was just a great person to photograph and get to know. Congrats to Arnold! Take a look at his charity foundation at God’s Transition Connection.
