At the end of 2013 I had the pleasure of shooting 9 of my favorite DC small businesses for American Express' Small Business Saturday campaign. I was tasked with showing the personalities and details that make shopping local so enjoyable. I'm humbled to be part of a vibrant creative community whose backbone is made strong by the small business owners who are the risk takers, doers and makers that buck the trend of what people think of our city. Every day, they work hard to make sure our city stays vibrant, unique, and supported by a sense of community. I'm lucky to call many of them friends, so it was a gift to be able to feature them in the campaign.
The photos are being released on American Express' Small Business Saturday Facebook page, which is has an audience of 3.3 million followers who are as passionate about buying local as I am. You can follow the page if you want to HERE. I'll be featuring a new business each day here on the blog, along with the stories of each business.
