I photographed the cover and feature for the December issue of Austin Monthly. The feature focuses on the Austin craft beer scene. So we shot some great local breweries, bars and brewpubs around town. We had a lot of ground to cover for this feature and the final layout looks incredible. Special thanks to our featured friends at Live Oak, 512 Brewing Company, Thirsty Planet, Jester King, Hopfields, Draught House, NXNW and Black Star Co-Op.
Tear sheets below along with my favorite outtakes from the assignment and a little story about our cover guy Drew Durish!
Here’s a little side story about our absolutely amazing cover guy. I originally photographed Drew Durish at Live Oak when we were shooting for the feature. As our deadline came near we knew we needed a really striking and fun guy to pull off the cover concept and I immediately thought of Drew. I just remembered that great smile, those sparkly eyes and that sweet, sweet beard. Luckily, Drew is the nicest guy ever and agreed to let us photograph him for the cover. Thanks Drew for making one hell of a great cover!
