I photographed Senior Hurricane Specialist Bryan Norcross in the studio at The Weather Channel in Atlanta for The New York Times.  To put it in layman’s terms, Norcross is a weather bad ass.  In appreciation for his work before, during and after Hurricane Andrew, Bryan received the 1993 David Brinkley Award for Excellence in Communication. He was also publicly recognized with designations of Bryan Norcross Days in Miami, Miami Beach, and Ft. Lauderdale, among other cities. In addition, he’s the recipient of an Emmy Award from the Suncoast Chapter of the National Association of Arts and Sciences, and lead the team that won DuPont and Peabody awards, the highest awards given in broadcasting.

It’s always great when someone so accomplished is still polite, accommodating and easy to work with.  Though it was a short shoot, Norcross was a pro and had something of a signature pose down to such a science that I hardly had to direct at all.  To read more about Norcross, check out the story here.
