I don’t feel I have been keeping up with my blog well, so here are a couple of shots from a recent beauty photoshoot. I’ve chosen a location for the new studio in Los Angeles in the Fashion District and currently plan to have it open by the end of September.

I think often when people see the final shots form a shoot, they really don’t have any idea what it took to pull it off. That is why I decided to post this photo as the first to be released from the shoot with fitness model, Raffi Cote.
This was our third attempt to make the shoot happen in this particular location. We had torrential rains and even flash flooding on the two previous attempts. For this shoot the weather report was “iffy” but it looked like we should have sunshine and clear skys for part of it.
It was raining, cold and overcast the entire time. But when you see the final photos from this shoot you will think we had the beautiful sunny day we had hoped for.
When I took this shot, Raffi was wrapped in towels to try to get rid of the goose bumps from the cold (and folks, this was taken yesterday, in August! but it was still very cold up there). I looked over and saw the scene and snapped the shot.
I like the story it tells of what was really occurring on the “set” that you can compare to the images we got when we release them.

Good things get better. And while I have worked on every shoot for the last 3 decades to improve my artistic ability and technical skills… now it is time to focus on expanding my facilities once again, this time by opening a state of the art studio in Los Angeles.
We are currently looking in the DTLA Arts District and expect to be opening the LA Studio mid September. This move has been taken to better service our clients, many of whom are in the Los Angeles area.
Follow this blog for updates on the grand opening.

I am honored that another of my black and white fine art photos has been accepted at Saatchi Art. Entitled the Illusion of Reality, it depicts the relationship between the spirt and the life forms that it animates, and the relation of the life form to the inanimate…. and the illusionary quality of all physical forms.
Please click the image to view it at Saatchi in a larger format. This is a limited edition print, with a print run of only 50 copies.
