A Weed is Not Simply a Weed

This weed represents the simplest things we ignore and cast as an eyesore despite its beauty. I’ve found that people are often treated the same. So, “a weed is not simply a weed,” etc.

Street Fashion Shoot at the Flat Iron District

While working this shoot, a police officer stood nearby, watching the model; watching me. I thought he was going to ask for paperwork although I knew it was fine. He instead asked about the equipment I was using since he was an amateur photographer. I explained the light setup and what kind of look we were going for. He nodded and walked away.

Worship — Vintage Style Fine Art Print

I always set out to introduce an element of fashion into my artwork. With this one, we went with the stockings the model brought into the session. The original version of this photo began with the model placing the mask on her face with a provocative photo balancing out the composition. As we were finishing up, she said, “How about this?” She placed the mask where it is now then I pressed the shutter button. Click.

This print is now on sale for $25 at this LINK.

Mask Made From Rope

Before we did her hair and wrapped rope around her face, we enjoyed a dinner of shrimp mixed in with the quinoa. We drank red wine and listened to Nitzer Ebb, Jazz and Blues. My fiance threaded her hair into braids then the rope. The look was inspired by Romans. The rope was inspired by Manila.
