Mikayla makes an Impression

This beautiful image is of Mikayla from School of Ballet Arizona. She is an advanced ballet student and certainly made an impression on us. This is only one of her images but was one of my overall favorites. I think you may be seeing some of Mikayla's images in other places soon. Please watch this blog as we will be working her images and HD video clips towards a Memory Music Video. Mikayla's beautiful costume was courtesy of the school. You can find out more about School of Ballet Arizona here: school@balletaz.org.

This is the release of a new song by singer songwriter Jason Gerardo titled Let it Go. This is part of Jason's new CD 108 Beads. These images and the video were created by us in studio and on location in Jerome. We created many outstanding and unique images for Jason that you will see in the video. These images were used for his CD cover, insert and website. You can find out more about Jason and his music at www.jasongerardo.com. We hope you enjoy Jason's song writing and singing as much as we do!


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.
