Over the past few months we have been hard at work creating some promotional images for the “Workin’ the Tease: The Art of Baltimore Burlesque” show. Along with images for their catalog, they are being used in old fashioned Globe posters to advertise the event. Check two of them out below! And be sure to come on out, I will be debuting my Burlesque series!
I am proud to introduce our new intern Sarah Deaner! Sarah is a student at MICA and has been with us for about two weeks now and has been a great help. Sarah’s work ranges from traditional photography to mixed media pieces that push the boundaries of photography. I really look forward to all the help she will provide us around the studio. We have a lot of exciting new projects coming up. Click on the link and see her work!
One of the downsides however, to being an intern and studio assistant are all the test shots that you must stand in for. I could easily make a book from my collection of assistant test shots. Here are two rather nice ones of Sarah from some recent shoots….its all part of the job!
This weekend we had Baltimore burlesque performers Dolly Longlegs and Kay Sera drop by the studio to participate in the series. As per the “guidelines” of the series, each performer came as themselves, how they present themselves to the world to be photographed as we interview. Then each are asked to prepare a costume that epitomizes their stage persona, their act. Everyone brings such interesting, deeply personal, things to the table. This was no different. We had our cake and ate it too! har har
I have just returned from a weeks visit to The Kingdom of Jordan. I went to visit a good friend of mine and had a great time exploring the country. I stayed in Amman at the home of a lovely lady named Merrill. She was a great host and made me feel right at home. I spent the week exploring Amman, The Roman ruins of Jerash, The Dead Sea and Petra. This has been an amazing trip with some of the warmest people and epic landscapes I have ever experienced. All topped off by spending time with a good friend. Here are some of the images from my travels. This first set features a market in Amman, The Dead Sea and part one of Jerash to the north close to Syria.
