Portrait session with Dominic, Alexandria, Virginia. August, 2016.

Dominic, an excellent graphic designer from the DC / Baltimore area, recently dropped in on the Alexandria, Virginia studio to sit for a portrait.  Dominic was familiar with my portraiture and, after discussing collaboration over the course of a few months, sat for a series of portraits in my studio.

Portrait session with Dan, Alexandria, Virginia. June, 2016.

Dan, one of my oldest friends and professional colleagues, recently visited Alexandria, Virginia, and we had an opportunity to make a portrait that reflects his dedication to his Masonic brotherhood as well as his fantastic sense of humor.  I am not sure what Dan was expecting when I begged him to bring down some “grotto clothing” for his visit, but we had a great time knocking out a series of portraits that we both love.

Portrait session with Helanah, Syracuse, New York. April, 2016.

Helanah and I recently collaborated on a portrait session in an ad hoc – errr, cough cough – garage studio during a visit to Syracuse, New York.  Despite the space being cramped (and the ceiling being comically low), Helanah was a trooper and her patience and poise are reflections of her professionalism.
