JOE SPENCER FOR DBUSINESS MAGAZINE
Creating editorial images for magazines been one of my favorite things since I began working as a professional photographer over six years ago. There's no experience in the world like visiting a local restaurant or business, meeting and talking with the creative people who keep our cities moving forward, and creating strong images of those people. This particular photograph of Detroit restauranteur Joe Spencer (and his pose) was a modern recreation of a beloved portrait of Joe's father, published in a newspaper decades earlier. Joe followed in his father's footsteps and now carries on the family business with pride and talent.
