I ended up really liking these photos... I made them a bit more grainy and tried to give them a film feel... If I had photos of myself up anywhere, I'd want them to be kind of like this. I like the snapshot-moment.
Too bad my fave photog and I are not on good terms. I'd love to do a black and white series like this with him. Boo.

I was so excited to drive down to Lebanon yesterday for Katie's winter formal... We did her hair and makeup exactly how she wanted and it went perfectly with the dress she picked out. I can't believe how big she is! It's weird how you forever remember little siblings as toddlers in diapers- a memory she is not equally fond of ( ;
But here she, all grown up.

I really trying to maintain some kind of artistic integrity while working on my portland book. Agencies and clients are looking for a variety of clean, technically good shots. But I am very interested in playing with light, textures, crops, et cetera.
Anyhow, if I continue on with photography I must carve out time for the creative shoots.
This last shoot with Amber Prehn was a lot of fun. I would like to shoot at her place one more time, since the day of the shoot was the first time I had seen her home... We used what we had, however, and came out with some great shots. Check out my flickr for more from this sequence.

Two steps and a hop, jump away from shooting for Option's Model Management. The picture posted above is from a recent test with model, Kacy Owens, who was still looking for those killer shots to fill her book and reel in all the clients. ( ;
I have 2 more tests coming up and then it's on to paid shoots. (Finally!)
