The Walking Dead for The Wall Street Journal

Posted by David Walter Banks on October 15, 2012 in Documentary, Editorial, Portraiture | 1 Comment

Some days, I love my job.  Like days when an editor calls me and asks if I’m interested in photographing the creation of a zombie.  Disclaimer here – I think of myself as someone with impeccable taste in film and television, except of course if that show or movie involves vampires or a zombie apocalypse.  […]

It never ceases to amaze me the atrocities the United States government has been willing to commit against it’s own people.  Elaine Riddick’s story is one of those acts of barbarity, and still, she fights back.  Fighting not for money, nor notoriety, but for justice and for the sake of the pursuit of what’s right.  […]

Atlanta Dream for Atlanta Magazine

I recently had the pleasure of photographing the Atlanta Dream for a feature story in my award-winning hometown magazine.  It was all the more interesting because Dream Too LLC, the Atlanta Dream ownership group, is the only all-female ownership group in Atlanta professional sports, comprised of owners Mary Brock and Kelly Loeffler.
