Rich





Rich Rosenthal is founder and President of the Max Restaurant Group, which operates restaurants in central Connecticut (and Springfield, Mass., which is one good basketball throw from Connecticut).  The Max restaurants run the gamut from steak-and-expense-account, to fish, to Italian, to burgers.  Each is highly successful and terrific within its genre.  Here is a link to a previous post about the Max restaurants.

This is my first portrait since getting back to Connecticut.  I raised my camera to take the photograph when the sky was cloudy and the colors in Rich's face were even.  Just as I started to focus, the sun came out, made Rich squint, and split his face between harsh light and deep shadow.  I must be rusty.

We have a Max chain in Sweden, but they sell mostly burgers. You have to be quick sometimes when you shoot street portraits!

Too bad about the squint, but it's still a successful portrait, I think.

These restaurant entrepreneurs have a very special gift for creating food establishments that thrive. We have a couple here in Phoenix and the minute they open a new place, the lines are around the block.

I still like the portrait very much (I find street photography pretty tough!).

Did you ever get to one of the special dinners that were being advertised last summer Jack?

Love the photo, even with its "imperfections" which I wouldn't have noticed because he's smiling.
