Future consideration

I was in the studio yesterday for a wreck the dress shoot. For those who don’t know, it is a popular after wedding shoot in which we do exactly what we say. We wreck that darn expensive heirloom you purchased to wear once. (dresses wrecked are done so with permission of the bride of course) … Continue reading

THURSDAY!

The Rake and The Recluse illustrated romance, screenshot, ipad epub version,

All this work and it’s down to two days of cramming in edits and redesigns. CHAOS!! I love working on deadline, that comes fro my blood as a photojournalist, a newspaper photographer. I thrive on dead. So here I am. I wanted to post a few more screenshots of the [working title] but these are … Continue reading

Out take

I have to remember not to ignore the blog over here. It isn’t the easiest thing, unfortunately. I released my favorite image of last year on my photography blog yesterday, which was a big deal because I had vowed never to share it for a myriad of valid reasons, all of which have now been … Continue reading

At times I work better under pressure  than when I have all the time in the world. I have enjoyed this project immensely, and it all … Continue reading

My bloody Victorian

The photo shoot went off without a hitch, everything was perfect, the images are great! It’s all shiny! BAHAHAHAHA! First off, things happen and you really need to hold your head and have a sense of humor or you’ll lose it and that isn’t a pretty thing, humans are born with heads and without them … Continue reading

More words, more pictures.

After a chaotic couple weeks of casting and costumes I decided none of the dresses I looked at were worthy of my book. Costume shops are great for many things, one of which being bulk costumes with lots of wear and tear. Most of the Victorian ballgowns were well worn and looking a bit shaggy, … Continue reading
