Trailiner

Trailiner, a refrigerated trucking company based in Springfield, Mo., is a multi-generation business. I photographed the founder and CEO, H.E. “Spook” Whitener, and his granddaughter, Amber Edmondson, the company's president, for Biz 417.

Excellence in Technology Awards

I made a series of portraits for Biz 417's Excellence in Technology Awards feature in the March/April edition of the magazine. All of the subjects were easy to work with and interesting to talk to. I especially liked getting to work with the guys at Eagle Speak, who I see around all over the place and photographed at events, but hadn't spent any real time getting to know them.
