Princess Leia

Princess Leia [pinit] Greetings from Princess Leia and R2D2 in the Millennium Falcon. I’m traveling in a big metal tube today, so this seemed like an appropriate photo for the occasion. In fact, I’m dedicating this entire week to photos from the Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando. This shot of Princess Leia came very close to […]

The Mechanic

The Mechanic [pinit] I made a few shots of Justin as the mechanic in a garage a while back. In most of them, we had a female model who was flirting with him as he tried to check out the car. Not a bad little story in itself, but I keep coming back to the […]

The Tiger Inside

I can’t recall meeting an Australian that I didn’t like.  Of all Australians, my two favorites have to by Lynne Jamieson and Kelly Virgona.  I met them at the Face And Body Art International Conference here in Orlando a few years ago when I covered it for the Orlando Sentinel. Lynne is the artist and […]

Dude!

When I decided to get back into portrait shooting, I approached it the way I think many other folks approach it – look for attractive & young women in little attire. Let’s face it, those photos get far more attention than any others that I post and, well, I like looking at attractive & young […]

What Do You Want from a Model?

Models.  It sounds so simple, and yet it can be so complicated.  You want to shoot some portraits, so you need someone to be your subject. It’s deceptively simple if your wants and needs stop there.  Plenty of people will pose for you.  Some for free, others for compensation. Of course, I’m not the kind […]
