Clare // Pinhole portraits

This week Clare Elliott sat for a portrait at the studio.  These are the first parts of what will be a mixed media collaboration between the two of us.  We photographed these with a pinhole lens on my digital camera.  Not sure which will make the final cut but here are the ones I love:

Juan in the studio. Again!

Last week Juan Veiza came to the studio for some head shots.  I met Juan about 4 years ago when we needed to hire a hand model for a client.  I learned that he was an actor and we became quick friends.  Over the years we have been working together to get the right head shot for his packet.  I am particularly pleased with this set

Family

Little over a month ago my uncle Steve was rushed to the hospital after suffering two heart attacks. Unfortunately his brain was unable to cope with the amount of time with out oxygen. Unable to breathe on his own and unconscious with out much brain function we sat by his side hoping he would recover. Unfortunately recovery was not possible. A few evenings later the family felt it best to let him pass in peace. He was an uncle I was close to, living with him and my grandparents all through high school.  This was our first Christmas with out him.  What follows is an image I made of my sister standing along side his hospital bed.  The rest are some shots of his parents, my grandparents, on Christmas Eve this year, their first with out him.

Burlesque: Series to date

Just in time for the holidays I’ve decide to make available a limited small book documenting my Burlesque series to date.  All proceeds will go towards helping to sustain and continue the project.  I think they make cute little adult stocking stuffer’s!  So be sure to snag a copy as I wont have it available for long!
