I was recently assigned to make a portrait of actor Rainn Wilson, best known for his character Dwight Schrute on NBC’s comedy hit The Office, during a visit to his hometown of Seattle. I caught up to Rainn just before a benefit luncheon to support the Mona Foundation. I was quickly drawn to a set of nice wood cabinets, though stuffed into a hallway. Would the comedic star allow me to invade is personal space? Yep, and he was personable and cooperative to boot during our short photo session.
