This is one photo from a recent men’s fashion photoshoot. It is probably the only one from this shoot that I will post due to restrictions on usage.
I love the mood and feel in this photo, the luxury, sophistication and sexiness all rolled in to one. Every minute detail in this shot was given the utmost attention, from prep through to completion of the post production. And I have to say, I am dismayed when looking at much of the work out there these days to see how often corners are cut in a photo shoot in recent times, and how the final image suffers.
I still believe in doing the best work possible. Please visit my commercial fashion photographer website.

This is the second post from the shoot I did last weekend with the singer. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed doing this shoot, and how much I am loving doing the post production on the shots. The passion burning behind his creativity was clearly visible in every move, pose and shot. And that is what I worked to highlight and capture.
This shot also serves as a classic example on why it is so important to use off camera lighting even on outdoor shoots where you would think the sun would do the job for you. The highlight and shadow on the singer, as well as the difference in exposure values between the subject and background that makes him “pop” out of the background and rivets the viewers attention where you want it… on the singer… was created by battery powered strobes to camera left and right. Without them, the shot would be flat, boring and lifeless.
My music photography galley on my site has not been updated since I did the overhaul on my website a few years back and is still the old format. I need to remedy that one day, but do contact me if you need some over the top live music photography, or promotional photos that will make people HAVE to come to your shows or buy your CD.

I spent many years of my photography career working with musicians, entertainers and actors. I still find it an intense joy to work with other artists.
This photo was from a shoot last Sunday with a singer. When the creativity of us both was combined, we brought out more in the resulting image than either of us hoped for. Please visit my entertainment photographer site.

Here is one more teaser from the ink and luxury fashion photo shoot I did in the mansion with Shaundra.
Please take a moment to visit my fashion photographer website. My blogs and OWN website are really the only ways to do this. As I have mentioned before, you won’t find my photos in a Facebook or other social media sites. It just goes against my grain too much to what it does to the work when I do, and I won’t surrender the rights to my work to them (as they attempt to do in their TOS). I would also rather spend my time creating beautiful images for the clients who appreciate and value the work than working to create an endless stream of pictures to feed to dozens of social media outlets.

I’m not going to say too much about this photo, except that you are going to be seeing quite a bit more from this shoot soon. The shoot is a beautiful blend of luxury and ink (tattoos) and blows away just one more stereotype. That is we can be whatever we choose to be, where ever we choose to be it. We don’t have to fit a mold.
