President Emeritus

Princeton University’s President Emeritus, Shirley Tilghman, for OOOM Magazine’s Summer 2018 issue. Opening spread. Princeton, NJ. March, 2018.

This past March I had the honor of working with the Austrian magazine, OOOM, in Princeton and in New York City on video and still projects for their upcoming New York issue. My still images have been published and they feature molecular biologist and former university administrator, Shirley Tilghman. Tilghman was Princeton’s 19th president and its first woman president (2001 – 2013).

The assignment for OOOM in Princeton encompassed filming an interview with Tilghman, Princeton’s Professor Roger Nelson, and OOOM’s publisher, Georg Kindel. The still photography covered Tilghman and Princeton’s campus.

The video with President Tilghman is yet to be published but here are a few BTS shots. It was a two-camera interview with a couple of 1×1 Astras bounced off the ceiling to bring the light levels up. I had to work in a similar vein for the still images except at quicker pace. So, those were a mix of available light with my Astras providing some fill.

The New York City leg of the OOOM work was all video based. An interview at the New York Times with the Editorial Director of NYT Global, Jodi Rudoren, and a panel discussion with superstar graphic designers at Milton Glaser’s studio. Milton Glaser, Chip Kidd, Stefan Sagmeister, Paula Scher, and Jan Wilker were the panelists.

Here’s one more photo from the Princeton images, an outtake from the session with President Tilghman.
