Self Portraits by the Master – Chanel French

Facebook has its pluses and minuses.  It can be used to re-establish old friendships, foster new ones, and keep in touch with family.  In this case, it was re-establishing a friendship from high school.  Kim and I were both cheerleaders.  She was on varsity, and I was on junior varsity.   It was our junior year of high school.  We didn’t really […]

I had an opportunity to work with Diêlha again.  She was one of the models who participated in my Spanish Harlem project, and she asked me to photograph her vintage photo shoot.  A couple of weeks ago, she posted in the Facebook group that we’re members of that she was looking for a photographer to photograph her […]

Engagement Session – A Strange Love

A couple of months ago, a photographer in one of my Facebook groups put out feelers for women who would be interested in a traveling dress project.  The concept for this is one dress in multiple different photo sessions.  Each photographer would have the dress for a designated period of time, complete a photo shoot, and then […]
