Fashion and Beauty Inspired Portraiture
Colbie Caillat decided that she was tired of being photoshopped. You should check this out. Very well done!
You can find her story in ELLE at this link:
For some of my photo shoots, the model does their own make-up and hair. At a few of those, I shot them while preparing for the next set. I've always found it an interesting, even artful, process in the preparation itself. Obviously, makeup itself is an art, but the process of applying it can be just as artful.
I recently photographed Kimberly Gambucci for a maternity shoot. Kimberly has a background as a dancer, so we did a maternity ballerina photo shoot as a way of combining two art forms. Maternity photography has largely become static in that everyone is basically doing the same few poses over and over. Honestly, it's hard to get away from, but I wanted to create something that had a different mood and feel for her maternity shoot. Combining the dance part of her personality with the maternity seemed like the best approach for Kimberly.
I recently photographed Shaie Dansby. She always brings the coolest wardrobe, but especially when it comes to swimsuits. These shots are from two different photo shoots.
It seems that this summer has turned into my summer of Dance Photography! Not planned, but it's happening because of so many dance photo shoots upcoming. Which is just fine with me!
"To me, the body says what words cannot. I believe that dance was the first art. I believe that dance was first because it's gesture, it's communication. That doesn't mean it's telling a story, but it means it's communicating a feeling, a sensation to people. Dance is the hidden language of the soul, of the body."
~Martha Graham, 1985
Are you afraid to do a glamour photo shoot? If so, then you are simply fearing the unknown. There is nothing to fear.
With the right photographer, you can look classy, beautiful and sensual. And it will not only be easy, it will be fun!
As a way of giving back to the community, I am pleased to provide a free portrait to any first responder and military personnel. All of these people provide a critical service to our community and way of life, and I want to say "thank you" to them for their service.
First responders can include such persons as policy and firefighters, but are not exclusive to these two groups. Anyone actively serving in our military or the reserves may also participate. The portrait will be of the individual wearing their uniform and the portrait will be taken in my studio. The portrait will be provided in a digital media and may be downloaded from my website.
Thank you to the amazing people, who are often unsung heroes.
The Dove company has the most incredible series of commercials about real beauty. I don't know of any one else that is nailing this subject right on the head like they are doing.
I don't want to give away the ending of this one, so you have to see it for yourself.
