Fellow Forty – Lexi

Oct 29

I knew that Lexi was expecting her third child, but had absolutely no idea she was forty. When I found out – I knew she needed to be included in the 40@Forty Project. We wanted to create something cool that wasn’t the traditional maternity portrait that you see every day. It occurred to me that my abstract profile concept – which I used for my...

Week 33: Vanishing

Oct 26

Week 33: Vanishing Years ago, my friend and mentor Gail Nogle created an image of her mentor – Jay Stock – bent over a camera with his white hair suspended above the viewfinder. That image has always stuck in my mind and I decided to try and put my own spin on the concept. I wanted a scene that was almost totally dark – with the main light source...

Last week, I flew down to McAllen to speak to the Rio Grande Valley Professional Photographers – and of course take in some great Mexican food!

Since following Heather’s suggestions is always a good idea, I had worked up an image in this psychedelic style. I took several images – all with...

Of all the portraits I have done this year, this has to be one of the ones I am most proud of! When I started working on my Masters of Photography degree several years ago, I decided I would try and get it with at least one image of each person in my family. After a few years of competition, I had gotten merit prints of myself, my two boys and even our dog Annie....

Week 30: The Formal Portrait

Oct 05

Week 30: Formal Painting After last week’s high-tech look, I decided to go the opposite direction with this image. I wanted to create a very antique – almost Old Master- look with a strong, directional light and a limited color palette. I tried to be very aggressive with the brushstrokes, getting increasingly loose as I moved away from the center of...
