As part of my series of portraits of movers and shakers of the building world, I photographed Chad Ochnich and Jeff Mattiola of Bluetree Landscaping. Chad and Jeff work often with EP Henry’s paver products, a frequent client of mine.

When I proposed having them pose waist deep in the pool wearing their work clothes, they were willing to jump right in. As I wrote in my Designer Dog blog, when I shoot portraits I like to show my subjects doing what they love, and also depict them in a playful way.

Chad and Jeff are natural partners in their business. Chad spends much of his time out in the field directing day-to-day operations. Jeff is the behind-the-scenes office manager and salesperson.

They have recently added swimming pool construction to their landscaping business.
