Vern Evans, who works out of Los Angeles, has been shooting for a long time and can make anybody look great, even a cranky artist and a cranky public radio host:

So I guess it's no surprise Evans managed to find something fresh at the most photographed event in the history of the known universe: this year's Comic-Con in San Diego.
Evans was raised in Texas and, "spellbound with images taken by Arbus, Frank, Capa, Avedon, Lange and Cartier-Bresson," attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.

When he's shooting, Evans says he asks the same thing of every subject: "Tell me your story," and the photo becomes "like a dream interpreted for its true meaning."
