Check out the latest issue of The Picture Professional with a cover and feature about Andy’s work shooting the oil workers at the Kern Oil Fields near Bakersfield, CA and the aftermath of the Elk Creek Complex Fire here in Idaho that devastated the area around where we live. A special thanks to Ophelia Chong at The Picture Professional for her work bringing this issue to life.
Earlier this year I took a trip to document the workers of the Kern Oil Fields in Bakersfield, CA. From those images I worked with Art Director Kellyn McGarity to create an amazing promotional booklet that will be coming to a creative department near you. Kellyn knocked this one out of the park and I love the final result. Check out the final design below.
We often go about our lives completely oblivious of the efforts folks endure everyday to bring products or services to market. I must admit, I’m one of those people, so recently I spent 3 days in California photographing oil workers in Kern Oilfield outside of Bakersfield. This oil reserve has over 475 million barrels left to extract, the densest oil field in California.
The work is tough, unrelenting and honest…not much else to say other than pictures don’t lie…enjoy.
