Portrait of a Lady

My goal this year is 50 self-assignment portraits.  That is, I choose the subject and the style rather than the client contracting me to create.  It is how I push myself creatively.  (Creativity, like any muscle, needs a regular workout.)  Overall, this year has been terrific, and I ought not to pat myself on the back, but we have created some fabulous images for business, Bistro portraits, and beyond (i.e. families).Still, the year was not half over and I needed to up my game.What would be a significant challenge?  What group never gets photographed?  One could make the case that the least photographed demographic is older women.  And, seeing as ...

Portrait of a Lady

For our third and final test shoot of the pre-season, we really pushed ourselves to photograph in some very challenging circumstances.  We had test shoots at Contemporary Motorcar, Roth Cadillac & Audi, in Erie, PA  The spacing was tight.  The lighting was challenging.  The cars were gorgeous.  So too were our models.  Here is just a sample of images from our Sports/Luxury Car Safari.  As before, Panache Salon & Spa did the hair & makeup, Bridal Elegance Prom Shoppe provided the gowns, and portraitists Paul & Max Lorei were on the cameras. This is just a glimpse of the fun. Check out the rest of model shoots and more here.

Portrait of a Lady

We had more fun than we should be allowed to have.  We tried something totally different.  We hand selected a number of rising seniors to be models for us this year.  And then, we had them wear some fabulous prom gowns from Bridal Elegance. The young ladies had their hair and makeup done by Panache Salon and Spa.  Then we went to the fabulous Warner Theater and the Watson-Curtze Mansion in Erie PA. to do an entire series of test shots. Armed with some of our latest lighting and with the help of the incredibly talented Sarah Peach, we went to work. I can't tell you how awesome it was to get to stretch my creative wings.  And our models had so much ...
