David, a photographer and figure model that I have come to know over the past year, recently visited my Alexandria, Virginia studio and sat for a portrait. I have photographed David throughout the past year and have always enjoyed our time together – David has a great sense of humor and I enjoy the time that we spend together. After our first portrait sitting, David suggested that we collaborate as often as possible in order to document the changes that chemotherapy have made on his body. Flattery aside, I am still touched by his request. I look forward to many…
Tiffany recently visited my Alexandria, Virginia studio and sat for a portrait – I am always up for a collaborative portrait sitting, and Tiffany was a great subject to work with. Aside from bringing a great energy to the portrait sitting, Tiffany was a blast to talk to – it’s not often that I get to talk about music with sitters the way that Tiffany and I were able to. (A reminder – get on that new Tyler album.)
Alex Gil, an incredibly talented architect and designer based in Brooklyn, New York, recently dropped in on my Alexandria, Virginia studio to sit for a portrait. Alex was familiar with my portraiture and was eager to update his bank of photographs to draw from for promotional work…and to have a few laughs! I think that our collaboration delivered on both fronts.
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.
“Let your plans be dark and and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.”
John McKaig, an accomplished artist and old friend, recently visited my studio to collaborate over a portrait sitting. John recently wrapped a gallery show and had a moment of downtime before jumping back into the studio.
And another Barbary ape that we met south of Azrou, Morocco, in the Cedar Forest. This is getting out of hand!
Another Barbary ape that we encountered south of Azrou, Morocco, in the Cedar Forest. We can’t get enough of these guys!
One of the many Barbary apes living in the cedar forest atop Azrou, Morocco. The Barbary ape, or macaque, is a monkey that lives in North Africa and Gibraltar and can be found hanging out close to the road just south of Azrou. The Barbrary apes were social (though I wouldn’t invite them home for dinner, let alone near your open car) and aside from one sitting on my windshield and smearing his butt all over the glass, they were as nice as one could hope for.
