What's a Nice Guy Like You doing with a Paint Brush?

You might be asking, "Paul, I know you are a photographer, what in the world are you doing with a paint brush?"That is such a good question.  As a photographer and artist, I am always looking to stretch myself creatively.  For anyone that has followed my work, it is rather easy to see the evolution.  And, rather than give you my life story, let's just say that I am fascinated with art, especially painting.  If I was born in a different age, I am certain that I'd have been a painter.  Yet, the lines between photography and painting have been blurring for the last 20 years.  I, myself, have been painting via the computer with stylus-brush and tablet for ...

What's a Nice Guy Like You doing with a Paint Brush?

Inspiration. For years I've wanted to create family portraits in studio that were more dramatic, more intriguing, more like a piece one would encounter in an art gallery.  Introducing Bistro Art Portraits. These remarkable pieces draw on inspiration from classical painting, cinematic tension and the best of photographic art.How it all began.It all started with my children.  Every year, for over a quarter of century, I have photographed our children in a variety of scenes and styles (e.g. at the beach, surrounded by peaches, tangled in Christmas lights, trapped inside a snow-globe, etc.). As they've grown older, they have become more cooperative, more willing to ...

If you have heard Daniel Cabanillas sing, your life has been enriched.  A powerful tenor, he has brought me close to tears on many an occasion. Every Christmas eve, with my family in tow, he has electrified us with his singular tour-de-force rendition of Oh Holy Night.  But that's not the half of it. This guy can sing.  And I, for the longest time, at least ten years, have wanted to create a portrait of him. Finally, two years ago, I finally got my chance.  We created some amazing images, one of him singing that we have shown proudly as a black & white both on our website and in our studio.  Yet, there was another image that I particularly loved.  ...
