10 Minutes With Dominic Barton

"No more than 10 minutes."

I hate hearing these words, especially when I have to drive my subject to a location and back.

Still, Dominic Barton (who wasn't the one imposing the 10 minute deadline), was wonderful to photograph. He didn't act like some bigshot (despite the fact that he is a bigshot in the business world) as he climbed into my tiny Honda Civic, politely noting the hockey stick and pretending not to notice just how loud I had the music cranked when I initially turned the car on. He even insisted on carrying my gear back into the newsroom afterwards. Sweet!

Kind of a striking subject. Love the 3rd shot.
