Classic Curves and Lines


Combining a classic auto as a background to a classic beauty holding a classic guitar…and a classic black and white post production effect, I hope my viewers agree, is a classic combination of classic lines and curves.

Simply Chelbie…..
I had paused the photoshoot of Chelbie in order to change out lenses, after attaching my long lens to my D700 I looked up and saw this unposed scene of Chelbie. Without warning I grabbed this shot and Chelbie was kind enough to allow me to post it. I do just love those candid images, even on a planned photoshoot.

As we remember our fallen….have a safe Memorial Day.

Mother’s Day Glamour photo shoot (may not be a work safe image)


Happy Mother’s Day!
I am pleased to introduce Kristeen to everyone, and yes, she is a mom! This photoshoot was a Mother’s Day present ( I rarely shoot “pro-bono” anymore). She wanted something edgy and nostalgic, and this is one (of many!) that we came up with. I will be posting some of the other images on my other blog thread later next week. I was so happy to be able to get her photoshoot finished and out to her by Mother’s Day, I hope all of you will show some love and also, be inspired to get out there! This woman had no idea she could look “like this” and was completely thrilled with the results of our work.

Model/ subject: Kristeena
Location: Little River, SC, USA
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VR lens, Nikon SB900 flash, shoot through umbrella, soft silver 42″ reflector.

This young woman wanted to do a portrait session showing her softer side and bringing the out her personality. She is also a waitress and serves as a voluteer firefighter. She felt that showing her softer side while in her bunker gear would bring out the female sexiness, her toughness, and the part of her that cares deeply for her fellow human beings. I hope you like and appreciate her for taking this bold step forward in expressing herself with class, confidence, and character.

Location: South Carolina, USA
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VR lens, off camera Nikon SB900 strobe and a shoot through umbrella. Lighting is camera left at about 6′ from subject.

This young wife wanted to create some images with jeans, she states were inspired by Mrs. Rob Zombie in “House of 1,000 corpses”. Yes, the shoot went very well…except for the constant interruptions of several young men (and a few women), who wanted to know if they could hold the reflector or the strobe and help out with the shoot…..well, what were my crew members there for?? lolol…I guess I should consider adding a security team for some of my photoshoots.
I almost posted this in color, but I really feel the black and white version is quite impactful enough. I guess to really get the full impact of this session, you would of had to have been on the set with the music going, and as this was during October (yep, she was getting ready for the Halloween party week) you would have seen Vampirella holding the reflector, the Batman holding down the softbox and strobe, and A she zombie on make up and hair…And as this was also being shot on location near the river with huge rocks, boulders, dead trees and shadowed trails….it was quite the Rocky Horror Show (tongue in cheek). Well..it was suppose to be a fun shoot, vampires and batman, robin, wonder woman, a werewolf, heck, I even think Superman was there somewhere….lolol..it was fun though.
On the photography side…I know I cut off her head…grabbed this shot as I was falling backward (tripped over a zombie onlooker), but I still like the image!

Model: Tara…
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VR lens, off camera reflector (camera right), one SB900 shot through a hand held small softbox (camera left), setting sunlight from in front of the model.

Danielle classic glamor and travel image. I have posted this one in color already, but I feel the black and white seems to have more impact. The theme was for some nostalgia and a traveller via sea or land. Commercial work, maybe stock, but a favorite of mine either way.

Location: Myrtle Beach, SC, USA
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 70-200 2.8, single strobe fire thu an umbrella.
