OCMETRO June 2009 Cover

OCMTERO’s annual “Women in Business” cover design. In an attempt to pull off an elegant, Vanity Fair-esque look, we enlisted the help of South Coast Plaza for wardrobe, Solmas for hair & makeup and our amazing freelance photographer, Challenge Roddie, for capturing it all. This cover design was quite the departure from our standard business type covers, but with each of the women on the listing being the top of million-dollar plus companies, we had to do something special.

Eugene Ku and Michelle Pulfrey on the set with Challenge Roddie

Taking a moment to catch Eugene “Gene” Ku and Michelle Pulfrey off-guard at an OCMETRO magazine cover shoot. Not quite sure what their doing, but they look like their having fun. The story was a combo between a fashion layout and our list of Orange County’s 5 most eligible bachelor executives. Outfitted from head to toe in South Coast fashions our photographer, Challenge Roddie, set the studio with a behind-the-scenes stage and a plethora of antique cameras to prop the shoot. I took the role of the back stage photographer to get some “b-roll” footage for the magazine and websites.
