I have been working with David Goldblatt to create new images for his website that will put more focus on his work as a composer. He is a brilliant musician and has worked with some of the major players in the music industry including Mark Isham, Stanley Clarke, Dizzy Gillespie, Wayne Shorter and Madeleine Peyroux. Without realizing it you may have already listened to his compositions and arrangements. Some have been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, EZ Streets and The Defenders as well as others. While setting up for one particular shot, David played one of his pieces, a tribute to Christopher Reeves. It was achingly beautiful. To listen to David play piano was certainly an added benefit to the portrait session.
Back in February during the Portland Jazz Festival, I documented his solo jazz performance at Classic Pianos. I was totally captivated by the music. Working with David to create images that he can use to complement his marketing was a great experience for me. Not only is he very talented but a very warm, humble and engaging person.
