Chris "Hitman" Harris - Style in Chicago

Its not every day that you land a style shoot with one of the starters for the Chicago Bears.  Jordana Wright Photography had the distinct pleasure of shooting Chris "Hitman" Harris in downtown Chicago last week, after making his acquaintance on Google's latest foray into social media, the Google + network.  Much to everybody's surprise, the Bears actually cut Mr. Harris the following day, upsetting fans to no end, and generating a great deal of interest and speculation into his career and future.  Enter the Detroit Lions, who picked him up basically as soon as he was made available.  Meanwhile, Chris Harris became one of the top 5 trends on Twitter for a few days, and as a result our images are being viewed everywhere!  Best of luck to Chris and to his continued success both on and off the field.  
Best of luck to the Bears too- there's a "Hitman" coming to Chicago in a few weeks......  

Enjoy the sneak preview of his Style in Chicago Shoot below!  

Special Thanks To:

Chris Harris, Brad Williamson of the Virtual Biographers
and to Joan Kuhn for the usage of her breathtakingly gorgeous home.

Captain Don Bussart

Captain Don Bussart 1919-2011

A note that Cassius wrote last night:
"I write this now, at a true loss for words.

One of the greatest American heroes, patriots, gentlemen, fathers, and most of all, friends - has passed away from us this last weekend.

He flew airplanes in dangerous places around Southeast asia for over 40 years. He flew for Air America, he flew the Hump in Burma, he flew wooden prop planes in air races. He set the world speed record in an open cockpit prop plane at well over 500 MPH. He flew stunts for movies. He flew for the military, for private companies, for spies and soldiers, and for his own. He was the guy tapped to short runway land and takeoff for the Bay of Pigs. C-130, biplane, jet, glider, He just flew everywhere as often as he was able. I had the pleasure of working with the man alongside Jordana for a photoshoot featuring one of his vintage airplanes, a 1934 American Eagle eaglet.
If more Americans were like him, the country would be in much better condition.

The world is surely a poorer place now.

Rest In Peace,

Captain Don Bussart
December 18, 1919 - October 14, 2011"

Autumn in Wisconsin

After a very busy summer, we finally got some time off and took a trip to St. Germain, in northern Wisconsin.  The fall has made a lot more progress that far north and we got to see some beautiful autumn color!  Here are a few of our favorite photos from the trip... Check back for more later in the week!
