Patrick Dempsey, a.k.a. “McDreamy”

February 11th, 2014

I am blessed. Really. I have been able to do the thing I love – image making – my entire adult life. I am not only blessed because I have been able to do it, but because as I have grown, it has been with clients that appreciate my work – and these relationships have existed for a very long time. Celebrity portrait of Patrick Dempsey for the cover of Forbes Life Magazine by Michael GreccoTake Forbes magazine for instance: in the past few months I have had the honor to shoot two very prominent covers for them. The first was of Patrick Dempsey, a.k.a. “McDreamy.” We spent a Saturday morning with him on his Malibu Estate. I often get involved in all the aspects of a shoot – even wardrobe – so Patrick wore clothes from my favorite menswear designer in the world – John Varvatos.  According to all the ladies that I have conferred with, I did good.

The second cover shoot was of the boy wunderkinds Evan Spiegel, 23, and Bobby Murphy, 25 of SnapChat. If you haven’t heard, Facebook offered them 3 billion dollars for their company (yes, billion) and they turned them down. This was just pure fun because they did not want to be shot in a static way, given that SnapChat is all about the 9-second photo that then disappears. So I had to bring a sense of fun and immediacy to the images. I love that!SnapChat co-founder Evan Spiegel on Forbes magazine cover by business photographer Michael GreccoThese shoots for me represent the most fun one can have as a photographer (except maybe, possibly, if you are shooting the SI Swimsuit Issue).

  1. Nice post.
    I wish I could be on the cover of Forbes 🙂
    Maybe I’ll get there if I win the Jackpot at Caesar’s Casino…
