Dance in Motion Study

Here are several samples from a long term project we are working on called Dance in Motion. This is a study of the beauty and movement of dance frozen in time by my camera. I intend to explore this style and see where it takes me. If you are a dancer you may contact me for an interview. We are looking for young, experienced & advanced dancers who may have something to add to our gallery of Dance in Motion.

The top image is Torrin Turley, winner of the 2010 Young Artist's Competition Dance category. The middle image is Patty Hernandez, also a participant and finalist in the same event. Both are remarkable dance artists! I'm going to add one more image below of incredible beauty. The third image is of Torrin again, on pointe in the studio. I could go on but it would take up too much room on my blog!

UPDATE: Please see my Dance Gallery for more images at the main website!


Victoria's Senior Music Video

Here is Victoria's high school senior music video. We created lots of great images for her in our portrait studio and in our outside posing areas. She sings, plays guitar and plays lots of sports. Victoria picked out this song titled Silver Dusk Waltz by Josh Ellyson, used by license for her video. -- Mention this video for 25% off your session!

Jason Gerardo's "For You (Ella)" Video Release!

We just finished shooting for singer-songwriter Jason Gerardo's new CD, 108 Beads. One of Jason's songs, written to his daughter Ella, is titled For You (Ella). Around the same time we were shooting for his CD, Ella came into our studio during one of our Angel & Fairy photo sessions. She did such a great job and was an outstanding angel model! We then combined Jason's song written for Ella and her amazing angel images to create this beautiful music video. We hope you enjoy this video and share it with all of your friends and family. Please visit Jason's website www.jasongerardo.com for more information about his music.

 

Chandler & El Farideh Portraits

Here are two portraits of Chandler and his little filly El Farideh, taken in the far North desert recently. She is a beautiful young Arabian and I can't wait to watch her grow up. Watch this blog for more Arabian photos in the future.

Marianna in the Morning

This is a portrait I took at Joe Diaz Top Level Boxing Inc. in Phoenix. Marianna was training there when I took this shot but has now moved to California. Joe Diaz is an amazing individual who runs a non profit boxing gym to help kids stay straight as well as training and promoting top level boxing talent in the Phoenix area. It was my privilege to shoot portraits there for a short time.

  

Angels in the Architecture - Ella

I wanted to share an Angel image with you since I haven't shown one in a while. I have always enjoyed these angel and fairy themed shoots and have had several very cute little angels in the studio this past week. This is Ella who was an excellent angel model as you can see. This set will be up for a few more days if anyone would like to call for a specially priced angel session.

Victoria's Senior Portrait

Here is an image of Victoria from her high school senior photo shoot. Victoria is a musician who plays guitar, an athlete and an artist who loves to draw. Watch for more photos of Victoria and possibly a music video. Perhaps you will get a chance to hear some of her own music. This image was taken in the studio's outside shooting area. Let us know what you think.
