Portrait session with J. Wayne Higgs, Alexandria, Virginia. March, 2016.

Photographer J. Wayne Higgs, a fixture of the Washington, D.C., photojournalism and fine arts photography scene for the past forty years, recently came to my studio to sit for a portrait.  Over the course of an hour, Mr. Higgs shared incredible stories touching on everything from the Pentagon riots in 1967 and the 1971 DC riots (both assignments that he covered from the front) to his adventures as an artist and figure model working consistently for longer than I have been alive.

Gurpreet Sarin, Alexandria, Virginia. March, 2016.

Gurpreet Sarin, a fantastically skilled singer and budding model, recently visited my photography studio in order to collaborate on a series of portraits.  Gurpreet, a veteran of the television show American Idol (here, too), was hoping to create portraits that would work in his modeling portfolio as well as for personal usage such as sharing with family.  What a guy!

David Segal, Alexandria, Virginia. March, 2016.

I recently collaborated with David Segal, a talented photographer and figure model, on a series of portraits here at my home studio in Alexandria, Virginia.  During the course of the portrait session we covered topics ranging from organized religion and atheism to adulthood and the mania that drives photographers to buy more and more stuff for no good purpose – normal small talk, right?
