More Brooke in the Catskills

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

Brooke Lynne and I worked together in the Catskills for two days. These are from the second day of shooting. A beautiful place, a beautiful, highly skilled model. It’s hard to miss with that combination.

Back With Brooke

Friday, January 6th, 2017

In August 2015 I was still trying to fully recover from my heath crisis in January. But I was feeling well enough to go on a bit of a photo expedition to the wilds of the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York. This was an especially good trip because I was joined by my favorite […]

Theda Tribute

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

First, another shot of Theda showing off her then new tattoo. We did this shoot right around the time of Lucien Clergue’s death. He was on both of our minds. So we did a few photos in memory of him and his wonderful use of ‘striped light.’

A Visit To Theda

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

In April 2015 I was starting to feel better, though I was still far from recovered from my health crisis. But I felt well enough to make a trip to New York City. I didn’t feel like doing any major shoots outdoors that would have required a lot of physical activity, but I did manage […]

Sometimes the Magic Works; Sometimes It Doesn’t

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

“Sometimes the magic works; sometimes it doesn’t.”  That was one of the many wise things that Old Lodge Skins said in the movie, Little Big Man.  And it wasn’t something he was upset about.  It was just a fact. Well, it’s true of the magic of photography.  Especially true when you are dealing with the […]

Farewell New York

Friday, August 24th, 2012

This will be the final post from the shoot near New York City with Erica and Venus.  It was a great day of shooting with two wonderful models.  The weather was perfect…solid overcast with occasional light rain.  Just what I look for when I’m trying to shoot nudes in nature. And, don’t worry, this isn’t […]

Erica’s All Wet

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

When I talk to models about working with me I try to always promise them that they can plan on getting cold and wet and dirty.  I put my models through a lot to get the photos I’m after.  Most of the models I work with understand what I’m after and what is required on […]

Birth of Venus

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

I couldn’t help thinking of that painting when I started looking at these photos of Venus de Milo from our shoot just outside New York City.  Of course, these photos are nothing like the famous painting.  But the model is Venus and she is splashing around in water.  That’s close enough for me.  There was this […]

It’s Been a While

Friday, August 10th, 2012

Sorry I’ve been gone so long.  I’ve been really, really gone.  As in very limited internet, cell service, hell, not even any TV.  I’ve been off in the wilds of Maine.  It was a great trip with a bunch of friends, both photographers and models.  I’ll tell you more about that trip in later posts. […]

More From Savannah and the Big Apple

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Sorry to go so long without a new post.  That was not my intention.  But I was traveling and was surprised to find that there was no internet and no cell service where I was staying.  Now that I’m back to civilization I’ll try to pick up the pace a bit. This is more of […]
