John Morse  

John Morse, candidate for Colorado State Senate
Downtown Colorado Springs
March 1, 2006

This afternoon I photographed John Morse for his campaign for State Senate. He's a fascinating person, with an impressive background in community service as a police officer and paramedic. He also has a great sense of humor! We had a fun shoot along Tejon Street in downtown Colorado Springs.

It's true--I've met so many interesting people through photography!

I LOVE the last one, he looks so much more relaxed and "himself" (even though I don't know him, haha). The fourth shot is my favorite "official" one :)

GREAT job, as always -

The last one is my favorite, too. I hoped to capture many different aspects of his personality. :)

Man you TOTALLY achieved that! I can see the serious, the playful, the accessible. WOW!

I like the last one. It makes him look very friendly and approachable. The 4th one makes him look very serious and reliable.

and, as usual, they're all fantastic.

I think in that fourth picture he looks like some hard-cutting cable tv journalist. ;-)

Affecting the votes
You've rallied him 20% more serious voters with #4 [morse05] and 40% more compassionate votes with #9 [morse20]!

(Note: The numbers can't be much higher since only about 49% of the people vote.)

Re: Affecting the votes
I do my part!

Is it really as high as 49%? (sigh)

Oh... He is a democrat...

That's why there were not any horns. :P

great shots as always! i agree, this is an interesting addition to your portfolio!

i like the 4th one, because his eyes match the shirt he's wearing. and it's the friendliest pic. :)

Fantastic as always!

Very nice photos! I'm sure they'll get him elected.

Wow, you've got an impressive eye for detail! I hadn't noticed that.

Hey, I know Tejon St. :) How did you get this gig? Now hopefully you'll hae friends in high places. ;-)

Both major party Presidential candidates in 2008 should have you take their official campaign photos.

They'll both appreciate your work.

Get on the line to Hillary Clinton and Condeleeza Rice today, since they will be the likely Democratic and Republican nominees, respectively!
charlottegeary on March 8th, 2006 06:20 am (UTC)
Yes you do! We took most of those photos in the park across the street from the Mexican restaurant you went to. :)

I got the gig through a referral from one of Mike's former coworkers. She does a lot of political work, and it's great that she thought of me. I'll be sure to invite to you some grand political galas now that I'm all important and stuff.

I saw you in coloradophotos. My name is Andrea and I live in Colorado as well!
I love your work.
charlottegeary on March 8th, 2006 01:24 am (UTC)
Hi Andrea! It's always great to meet a fellow Colorado photographer!
annie1986 on March 8th, 2006 03:44 am (UTC)
Yeah it is!
Maybe I can learn a thing or two from you! :)

I'd vote for the guy in the last photo. Nice work.
