Francine, a superstar figure model and veteran of the retail music industry (RIP Tower Records), recently stopped by the studio in Alexandria for a portrait sitting. Francine and I had conflicting schedules for longer than I would like to admit and it was awesome – awesome! – to finally collaborate with her on a sitting.
I recently collaborated with Carl Severson, head honcho at Good Fight Entertainment and an old friend of mine, on a series of portraits while visiting New Jersey. Carl saw some of my recent portraiture and suggested a collaboration to use for business purposes and, as an artist can only wish for, simply told me to do what I do. Fantastic, right?
Rosa, a friend of a friend (and now a friend-friend of mine), recently sat for a portrait in my Alexandria, Virginia, studio. Rosa was admittedly anxious about the process and wasn’t sure that she would be comfortable during the session. The result? She knocked it out!
As I mentioned earlier, I recently traveled to Syracuse, New York and made portraits of my friend Ron and his family. Working with the Kains on their portraits was a treat!
Life has a certain way of obliterating any plans to revamp websites and produce portfolios (the kind that elevate one’s middling photography into a stellar form of expression that causes art buyers to quiver in their boots and fight over your oldest edits). That’s just fine with me.
