On the Cover
The image on the cover titled “Talk to God” is a self portrait of Weston Hall at Burning Man 2008. A year prior, after 10 years in a banking & finance career, Weston had made the move to pursue photography full time.
As an artist, Weston works hard to develop images that speak to himself and to others about the natural beauty that exists all around. With a diverse portfolio and broad range of photographic talent, Weston focuses on his favorite genres: people, places and commercial product.
Weston’s photography experience is a mixture of business and pleasure. In 2012 he opened Got Headshots? Portrait Studio to fill the need for professional headshot photography for actors and other creatives as well as local business owners who want to make a powerful impression to their online networks. His headshot business provides the opportunity to pursue personal projects along with his insatiable desire to explore new places, in Utah and around the world.
On October 30, 2014 Weston’s 41-year-old life came to a surprising end. He was rushed to the hospital after complaining about a chest cold all day and then suddenly passing out in his backyard. The chest cold turned out to be his aortic walls tearing apart from an aneurysm caused by years of genetic high blood pressure. After a 12-hour emergency surgery and post-operative complications that required a medically induced coma for two weeks, Weston miraculously pulled through with love and prayers from his amazing wife, friends and family (gofundme.com/westonhall).After his personal experience with death, talking to god and being in and out of his body, Weston sees the world with new eyes and has a slightly different photographic vision that will be fun to watch unfold in the years to come.
