Howard Behar, patience incarnate

Posted by Mike on August 1, 2008

Mr. Behar, formerly of that giant coffee company (Starbucks), was the object of a magazine story I was asked to photograph.

The requirements to fit into the design were pretty specific and I needed to combine actual bowlers in the background with him….

He was cool right up to picture 3… and then we were done….

Thanks, Howard.
