The Four Seasons

Sep 02

Back in May, I was helping out with the Westwood School’s Shakespeare play and loved how they were doing really complicated makeup on some of the kids. We decided to try and put together a portrait of several girls – all sporting different makeup. The summer, we gathered up a few brave models and my buddies Sami and Gusi went to work on their hair and...

Week25: The Guitar

Sep 02

My son Dean has been taking guitar lessons for the past month or so. Watching him practice kept reminding me of how I used to love wasting time trying to learn songs on the guitar in my dorm room. Last week I finally broke down and bought myself a guitar. It has pretty much consumed every free minute I have had over the past week – so I figured it should be...

A Few Days By The Bay

Aug 25

We just got back from a great visit to San Francisco. I was speaking at the ProPhoto Expo over the weekend, so Heather and I decided to go a few days early for a little mini-vacation in one of our favorite cities. It is so strange to be on vacation in August and wearing jackets the whole time. Since we had been to SF a few times before, we decided to avoid the...

Week 24

Aug 24

I don’t have to follow any of the rules of traditional portraiture. I’m not restricted by any guidelines whatsoever. It really is quite freeing! As photographers, we are taught to not...

Week 23: Candyman

Aug 17

My pal Gusi is studying theater at OKCU. Last semester she took this makeup class and learned all these crazy techniques. We decided it would be fun to use one of these for the project. This look was created by covering my face with little pieces of candy and cupcake sprinkles. Lots and LOTS of pieces. I thought it would take 30 or 40 minutes, but it actually...

Walter

Aug 05

Years ago, I took this great picture of Walter playing pool. I was just starting to really learn about photography and somehow – quite accidentally – got this great shot of him. I still have a copy of it hanging in my office and he has a copy hanging in his game room. Since I did the painting of his wife Tammie, I decided I would update his pool...

Tammie

Aug 04

While visiting friends in Kansas City this summer, I decided to paint a portrait of Tammie to try out a new style. I wanted it to be a very simple, elegant portrait – but not overly formal. Here is what we came up with… We printed the painting on watercolor paper and matted it for a very fine art feel. I was thrilled with the final piece. Next up, I...
