One of the best things about Drew's work, aside from the great portraits, is the link to some great artists. Nice job, bud!
 
Here's a bit of my most recent portrait project...a backstage artist portrait studio, at the All Good Music Festival in Thornville, Ohio.

5 high rollers, 3 backdrops, a 12'x12' silk and frame, a reclaimed wood floor, tons of sand, a bunch of cameras, awful weather, a whole lot of planning, and some luck....

If you like what you see here, there's a whole lot more on my site: http://www.drewgurian.com

Talk about completely missing the mark. I can't speak for every job on this list, but the description of the college professor as being the #1 least stressful job is so beyond reality I can't imagine the others are accurate.

I suspect Forbes contributor comes with less stress than a university professor...even with all the heat this contributor will probably receive from this article
