  9. Photographing models & actors and helping them create a portfolio that shows the dynamic of their style & character is fun!

    I pre-design a photography session to give everyone a game plan on what creative images can be done. Giving the model/actor clothing ideas along with props and locations, enables me to get the variety that they need in their portfolio.

    These images are crucial to getting you noticed by talent scouts and casting agents…

    If you want to get your portfolio started,Email me today! artmaker@email.com

  10. Excerpts from Jodie Foster’s acceptance speech from the 2013 Golden Globes…

    "I’m 50! I’m 50!….
    This brings me to the greatest influence of my life, my amazing mother, Evelyn. Mom, I know you’re inside those blue eyes somewhere and that there are so many things that you won’t understand tonight. But this is the only important one to take in: I love you, I love you, I love you. And I hope that if I say this three times, it will magically and perfectly enter into your soul, fill you with grace and the joy of knowing that you did good in this life. You’re a great mom. Please take that with you when you’re finally OK to go.

    "You see, Charlie and Kit, sometimes your mom loses it too. I can’t help but get moony, you know. This feels like the end of one era and the beginning of something else. Scary and exciting and now what? Well, I may never be up on this stage again, on any stage for that matter. Change, you gotta love it. I will continue to tell stories, to move people by being moved, the greatest job in the world. It’s just that from now on, I may be holding a different talking stick. And maybe it won’t be as sparkly, maybe it won’t open on 3,000 screens, maybe it will be so quiet and delicate that only dogs can hear it whistle. But it will be my writing on the wall. Jodie Foster was here, I still am, and I want to be seen, to be understood deeply and to be not so very lonely.

    "Thank you, all of you, for the company. Here’s to the next 50 years."

    — 

    There was more to her speech before the last quote but i felt the most poignant was when she spoke to her mom and to her boys…From finding it hard to say goodbye to your precious parent, her mom, who clearly is fighting letting go & dying, to addressing her future as yet to be written…

    Her life has been in the film world since she was a toddler of 3 to the age she is now, 50.  She really is saying that life happens and that we each go through different stages and evolutions but above it all we need to be excited for what future we make…that journey…and about not being lonely…

    I was deeply moved since i too am 50!  I document life through my lens.  The Life of others. My clients, My friends, My family.  What is my legacy? I think it is the gift of memories.  I hope the people who look at my work in the photographs that i have done for them, whatever memory the image evokes, that it is one that warms their heart in some way…

  11. 'Casanova'…the legendary Sheik, lover of all women…man of many a young girls dreams.

    'Tangled'…a Casanova Adventure…(crib note version)

    -When next we see young Casanova, we find that he learns of the kidnapping of a young damsel who was taken from her ‘rich’ Uncle Seymour’s Estate, and is being held captive by a band of ruthless criminal nomads in the desert and are rumored to be selling her as a  slave….After sneaking into the tent where she is being held against her will, Casanova wraps her in his turban and whisks her away stealthily into the night…He is captivated by her and soon young Casanova succumbs to her charms…But wait!…it turns out that she is not just any damsel, but the notorious female pirate known to many on the high seas as “Pink Penelope, the veiled lady”! Famously known to break many a pirate’s heart! (work with me here as i make this crap up)…The End.~

    Sometimes inspiration strikes me at an add hour…hence my Nocturnal photography series…I go out into the night and photograph on the streets of Dallas when nobody is around and use the available lighting with some additional light brought by me, to create a story of some sort to make it appear is if i may have photographed this in a studio setting…

    The Casanova series came to me in a dream one night and fortunately i have great friends who allow me to photograph them and make them immortal in images…

    Fine Art Photography has been a passion of mine and i am constantly evolving my cinematic creative style…I would love to create a fine art piece featuring- YOU. Call me today and let’s brainstorm to create your storytelling Masterpiece!

    I have openings this week and have a special on Facebook for those who like my fan page in the month of January, they will get a gift of a $75 voucher that will be applied towards their session.  (This is only a gift of a credit with no cash value).

    Until next time. stay romantic!

    Lately i have been viewing life through my cinematic eyes…I photographed this teen one really late night on the streets of Kerrville, Texas around Midnight…Why did you shoot at that time? Well one reason was i was with some of my wonderful creative friends, and the inspiration bug got a hold of us and we happened to have a senior who was willing to model for us late at night!…The second reason was we wanted to avoid cars and traffic downtown…
The Challenge was to “see the light around us” and use it!  This image is lit by a store light in a window as she sat on a bus bench…I saw a beautiful cinematic light that gave me wings to capture her as if she were an actress of the 1920’s era with a modern twist of her piercing and the bullet hole in the glass…hence my thought of it being as if a gangster just shot the window out…Doesn’t she looks like a gorgeous actress of the cinema?
I cropped the image as if i were viewing it through a cinematic lens..not your average size that one would see…but then i thought, “why not”? and you see it is incredibly gorgeous and dreamy…
I would love to create a cinematic image of You!  Call me today!
