High time I did another pin-up themed model shoot with two of my favorite fellow artists, Karen (makeup) and Tracey (hair). Brian from Wayne’s Speed Shop was kind enough to let us use his sweet 1950 Chevrolet Deluxe coupe and he also picked out the location. Good work, Brian!
We started just as the sun dipped, which gave us a nice scene to sculpt with speedlites and a big ole softbox hooked up to my ABR800.
It was a hilarious shoot as usual with this bunch and a few of the locals came to check it out. Including some dude that claimed to be a Hell’s Angel. There is no way this guy was one of them either. You can’t go around lying about something like that, sir!

The year 2012 included an amazing wedding with Boogs, lots of super exciting projects, and some unfortunate losses in the friends & family department. I will be pushing myself even harder in 2013.
If you are considering hiring me, please take a look at my pricing and feel free to contact me with any questions or jokes you might have heard this morning. I love jokes.
Great photo shoot to celebrate Halloween and my love for horror movies. There have been great vampire movies and there have been vampire movies that depict the undead nightcrawlers as the most pitiful characters in the movie. Stake through the heart. Garlic. Seeing if they have a reflection. Sparkling in the daylight. If you are a believer in the last one, you may stop reading and proceed to never read anything I post here ever again.

Steello bikini shoot: TAKE 2! This time we have a reliable model with the common courtesy to actually show up for the shoot. Dawn has been waiting to shoot with me for a while and our schedules finally matched up to make this happen. Brit from Steello designs spectacular crochet swimwear. I didn’t even know it was possible to crochet swimwear, but the proof is in the pudding.
We started shooting at approximately 5:30PM and went until sunset. Sandy Hook is rich in history and even features an old NIKE missile base. The United States had many underground missile bases throughout the east coast to defend us from air attacks and sneaky submarines.
I celebrated another great shoot with a virgin pina colada and a cheeseburger at the Sea Gull’s Nest.
