New Photo location

Here's Giulini.....she was a lot of fun and really brought the energy. I'll be posting more shots of her soon. This was taken on the horse trail behind my house.

Power and Grace

Katya teaches ballet, and it's not just a hobby, it's her life. She was amazing to watch and a pleasure to work with. I've been wanting to photograph a ballet dancer for quite some time, and I think I found the right person.

Jessica Rabbit

"I'm not bad, I'm just photographed that way." Those of you who have seen the 1988 film, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", will recognize that line, and this character.
I recently realized why I enjoy creating these Disney characters so's because it combines my love for animation and my love for photography. These projects are a lot of fun, and very tough to walk away from. They are extremely challenging, but I find them very rewarding in the end.
Like the others I've done, the goal is always the make the animated character come to life. And I try to do that to the best of my limited abilities and resources.
Let me make something clear here.....YES, this is a real person. Her name is Courtney and she was a great sport through the whole thing. Yes, there is a lot of photoshop work involved to make Courtney "become" Jessica Rabbit....about 30 hours worth.
This is MY interpretation of the character, it may differ from yours.
Thank you for stopping by.

Hard Body

Leonella was probably in better shape than anyone I ever worked with.
