066/365 Information Technology

Information Technology Is Serious Business. This is my buddy Jason from work. He is a master computer genius of epic proportions. He can fix anything, literally. He is head of support for the IT Department. He has been asking me for a while to do a cool techie shot of him and what better way than to slap him in a suit (to make him look important of course) and put him in the middle of the server racks.

    Great job, this is definitely a fave, not just because it's a great image but the tech geek in the server room, always a good thing :)
