Sending in a press release about my new book Artists Weathering The Storm I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from the local paper for an article about me and the book. It will be good for the artists in the book.
My next book will be titled Session will be more of a portfolio of my work.
It will consist of all variations of my styles when working with people from Tame to Film Noir.
Currently I'm working on a book about artists. The artists are from Chicago and Rockford area. The book is in it's final editing stages and will be in print soon.
Artists can view this site to keep posted on the progress of the book.
People want to know what is a Celebrity Style Portrait and how is it different from a standard portrait that most people have done.
A celebrity style portrait has the elements of an editorial shoot, which means I work
the photo session the same way a magazine session is photographed.
That includes is several changes of outfits, and sometimes location. A session is discussed before the day of the shoot to come up with a theme, style, and location if possible to give the best look for the photograph.
The strong images of magazines are not there without putting the effort into the lighting, style, outfits, and effort of both the photographer and the person being photographed.
Outfits will be changed, sometimes lighting, and I photograph from tame to film noir style what ever the model wants. If some of the images you see are stronger than you might want, well that's because a lot of the images are of models who need strong impact to get noticed.
If you want something softer with a romantic look to it, that is possible as well.
Remember a photo session can be what ever you want it to be. If you thought of being a rock star, or a character from your favorite movie, or just want a striking photo for your wall, it is art with you in it, that is what a celebrity style shoot is all about.
You see the images you love in the magazines, well that is the style of photography
I do for all my photo sessions. You are the model for the day in a magazine shoot and the results are just as strong as the images you love in the magazines.
The books above are of my Lanscape book titled Scapes and my new book about Artists.
The Artists book is about artists beginnings and how they were able to create their art work against the odds. << New text box >>
