Scary self promotion…

A departure from my fashion and beauty photography.  A month ago I met with art directors from a very well

known confectionery.  I brought my fashion portfolio along with a body of personal work showing my take on lifestyle.

They responded well to both bodies of work.

Here is the Halloween promotion they will be receiving.  Have a ghoulish Halloween!

Walking  on W. 23 St. to Hasselblad seminar I stumbled across the Edward Steichen exhibit at the Danziger Gallery.  This show closes tomorrow and is a must see.  It features prints made by George Tice for a 2000 retrospective.

The photos are masterful.  Stunning celebrity portraits and fashion images.

Lots of cards, now who to choose for the fashion editorial next week?

It is a nice surprise to see one of my photos in a model’s book.  Funny we didn’t recognize each other upon

meeting.

Two Japanese men make a beautiful white girl more white.  Photoshop will complete the job!

Companion story….

I had great response to a shoot where I painted a male model black and photographed jewelry.

Today I am doing a companion story where I am having a female model painted white.  I am excited and patiently waiting

for Hiro to finish airbrushing!

Sunday night paella

My 15 year old son Sam has been making dinner every Sunday night.  Last night was his first attempt at making paella.

He had some help, but not very much!  His favorite part is watching his old man scrub the pots!

It tasted just as good as it looks!
