A Rising Star

Meet Ileana.

Ileana is currently a student of a New York City Performing Arts School.

She is a Singer, Actress, Dancer, Musician…you name it! She would also like to enter the Professional Modelling field.
I had the honor and the pleasure of photographing her for her portfolio.
Be on the look out for this girl folks! She has talent extraordinaire!
I had a really great time with the photo session, both in studio and on location.
Ileana is a natural. She had every pose right on target and she plays well to the camera lens.
It of course doesn’t hurt that she is quite photogenic as well.
I put some of my own artistic flair on some of the images, just to bring a unique perspective to her and to show some Commercial, Fashion & Glamour images that she can use in her portfolio.
As always, there were lots more images, (go to my website)but not lots of room to post them all.
Ileana, thanks very much for choosing us for your portfolio images. It was great fun. When you are ready for an update, we’ll be here for you!
Best of luck in NYC!

One For The Ladies

This is Dean.

Dean was kind enough to volunteer for our photographer’s workshop last month. He had never modeled before, but you would never know it by the easiness in which he was able to pose, give just the right amount of eye-contact and engage the viewer of the photos.
Once again the Triple A’s (see previous post) and I got together for a day of fun and learning and it went very well. We were able to photograph Dean in a variety of poses, outfits and locations.

I really had a great time being able to work with Alice, Abby and Andreia. I already can’t wait until the next workshop!
Dean was a blast and we laughed and had fun with him all day. For those of you who did not see it, I posted Dean’s gallery on my website and just to add even more fun to the whole photo shoot, I used an old song by a group called Right Said Fred. You may recall the song…I’m Too Sexy.? This plays in the background while you view Dean’s gallery.

People can’t stop talking about how funny it is. The images are all great and yet it seems like I shot them with that song in mind. (I really didn’t). I thought of the song afterwards.

If you are interested in seeing the rest of the photos, go to my site and in the PROOFING GALLERY, type in the password: Dean. (case-sensitive). Then post your comments back here on the blog. I’d love to hear them. The gallery will only be there for a limited time, so don’t delay.

Dean, thanks so much for being such a good sport. I got some really great images thanks to your willingness to follow my directions and suggestions. You might want to consider a career change. I think you are excellent Model material. You are a real gentleman, self confident and you have an awesome sense of humor…all great qualities. I hope you enjoy all the photos.

Portraits of Marci

Hello all.

I had the pleasure of photographing an interesting lady recently. She is a Certified and Licensed Shiatsu Practitioner and Chios Energy Healer. She also performs distance healing. Her practice is based in Central Mass.

We had a very nice session and I got to know her a bit more. During the session we spoke about the type of work she does for both people and animals.

We got a lot of nice images during her session. We did the standard portraiture just to get it out of the way and then the fun began. We did some Business, Fashion, Glamour, Commercial Advertising and other fun themed photos as well. Here are just a few to share with you.
We had fun with it and the images showed that, which is something I strive for when making portraits of people.

If you’d like more info on Marci and her services, go to http://www.agiftedhealer.com/.

If you’re reading this Marci, I could sure use some of that distance healing right about now. I have been down and out with the Cold/Flu for the past two weeks!
Send me some of that good energy – PLEASE!!!!

Seriously, thanks for expressing your confidence in me and for allowing me the opportunity to provide you with these and many more memorable images. When it’s time for a family portrait or portraits of your children…I hope you’ll think of me and come back again. 🙂
Best wishes and be well.
