I love fashion and glamour photography. I mean, next to shooting weddings I love setting up eloboratte photo projects, working out details, finding outfits and then directing and shooting. This shoot had been in my mind for a while, and only came to be when our initial location that we were going to shoot at had to cancel. So what did I do? I rented a cheap motel room!
I wanted to take photos that told the story of a lonely beautiful girl with no where to go. Hair was done by Kristine Young and makeup by Rosalba Matone. Dresses are available at Lorraine Roy in Danvers, Ma. My model is my sic friend Mellie.

Saturday I met up with Jessica and Arnie for their engagement shoot over at the wicked awesome Museum of Fine Art in Boston. Jessica and Arnie are getting married in two weeks and this was their first chance to get out with me and have some fun.
We roamed the halls of artwork, took in some culture and took lots of photos. I believe this was Jessica and Arnie's first time to the MFA and I hope they really enjoyed the art and history there. I know I had a great time learning who they were and now I am excited to shoot their wedding which I know will be great!

Sin City! What a place to shoot! I just got home after spending four days in Las Vegas for WPPI. I also took some time to meet up with a great couple and shoot them in the desert and on the strip. We shot out in Red Rock Canyon and on the strip. The dress was provided by Lorain Roy of Danvers, MA.
It was a great shoot until it started to rain and we had to head back to the hotel.
Check out these shots, they are sweet!

I just had a great meeting with some new clients here at my studio and I was showing them some of my film work when it dawned on me to maybe post some of my really old film images that have not seen light for a while. There are some shots from Boston and the Dominican Republic, with Haitians working on a sugar plantation.
I also wanted to show off some portraits of Shekia that I shot last week. She has great eyes and I tried to make them the focus of the images. I hope you enjoy!
The old Rowe quarry in Revere.
Haitians working on a sugar plantation, and other farms in the D.R. These images are old slides from about ten year ago.

I have always wanted to shoot an anti-bride, which to me is anything totally non-traditional. Sarah here is not a real bride and this was a shoot just to explore some of the fun and style that could be found with a more goth and punk look.
Any chance for me to make something new or look different and be able to explore new ideas is always a chance I want to take.
I wanted to see if I could be a little bit more edgy and see where that could lead me. The dress was from a runway show that Lorraine Roy loaded to me and they also donated the model Sarah to me for the day. Hair and makeup were done by Twisted Elegance artist Alisha Dube.
The jewelry the bride is wearing is from Chrome Hearts in Las Vegas, some awesome stuff.
We shot in East Boston at Orient Heights next to the giant cross that overlooks Boston. In my mind I had this cross glowing as I always see it when I drive by. Alas, it never lighted up while I was there and we even waited, but light was fading fast so we had to start shooting. It was a bout 29 degrees out, but no wind or moisture in the air so it was very workable. The entire shoot took about 15 minuets and then we were back in my warm truck heading back to the studio.
I hope you like these images. I had a blast shooting them and even though we froze our hinds off I think it was totally worth it.
