Boston’s Finest needs a strong leader, and that’s exactly what Police Commissioner William B. Evans is. Our team recently had the opportunity to photograph the Commissioner for the cover of SCENE magazine.  Rather than photographing him in the studio, we wanted to showcase him out in the city he protects.

First thing was getting the set ready. We picked a location with a city skyline, and added in the police cars to set the mood.

All that was left to do was to shoot! The team had to work quick to get the perfect image with the time that Commissioner Bill Evans had available in his busy schedule!
