I was recently hired to document the happenings at the Nova Cafe, a popular breakfast restaurant in downtown Bozeman, Montana. Between documenting the culture and atmosphere of the diner, I also made professional business portraits of the awesome Nova boss lady Serena Rundberg and her partners. The Nova Cafe has become the breakfast staple that it is due to their commitment to serving the highest quality, most sustainable ingredients sourced as close to Bozeman as possible and making everything from scratch here in their kitchen. This shoot was a lot of fun. Here are some of my favorites. -M

I recently finished up a portrait marathon for an assignment for our weekly business journal. In three days I made twenty portraits of individuals in the Bozeman community that have made an impact on the community through their personel drive, local job creating endeavors and their overall contribution to the betterment of the community they live in. It was a fun project for me. I don’t get to work in the studio that often, so I decided to challenge myself by trying to make different portraits all with keeping the same lighting set up in the studio here at the newspaper. I wanted the photos to be about the subject and not their clothing. With this in mind, I chose to have this series be in black and white. I liked how it turned out. To read more about each individual’s story you can check out our interactive story on the Bozeman Daily Chronicle’s website. Thanks for looking.
