On Assignment for Boston Globe

With the presidential election drawing closer, more and more assignments are focused around presidential candidates and campaign rallies.  

The Boston Globe asked me to go to Ellijay, Ga. to photograph Ted Cruz supporter Joe McCutchen.  I ended up spending the whole day following McCutchen around town.  McCutchen believes Cruz will win the Republican nomination through talk radio as well as small business owners coming together to promote Cruz.  After spending the day around town, we ended the day with a quick portrait session at his home.  Here are the photos from my assignment.
