In the chronology of my photography, this photo goes back several years.

The significance it holds for me is that this was the first experienced model I ever worked with. It was also the first time a model hopped on a plane to come shoot with me. I could continue this list of "firsts" for looooong time...but it is enough to say that working with her forever changed my photography. I became "spoiled", very quickly. She set the standard...and that standard was lofty, indeed.

For the next several weeks, I wanted keep the momentum and keep shooting, but I just couldn't find anyone that came close to her calibre...that is, until I met her identical twin sister (jaimeibarra.deviantart.com/gal..., who quickly became my most-photographed model. The images I created with her would eventually go-on to define me, as a photographer.

But the day I took this photo is when all of this began.

Officially :)

"What if all I want is not so hard, after all?
I've spent too many days wanting
If it's just wildflowers that we would pick
And set on the table, and look at in the morning..."

If you've ever been to one of the bigger Renaissance Festivals, chances are you've seen Twig the Faerie, flitting about the grounds.

I love this image...I think because while many have photographed her, most have only been able to do-so whilst at the Renaissance Festival. To me, nothing ruins the magic of what she is more than seeing somebody walking into the frame, gnawing on one of those giant, mutant turkey legs, sold at the festival...much like the first photo I ever took of her.

Not satisfied with that, I made a point to do some research, and contact the woman behind the faerie...and almost a year later, I was photographing her on MY turf :)

We've been friends ever since, and I have gone on to photograph her many, many times, over the years.

This photo was one of the first of those, taken a few years ago at my house, on Halloween night. The only light source is the cluster of tea candles you see in front of her.

And when she's not Twig, she's Kathy...

Model - Jessa

I usually tell a bit of the story-behind-the-image...but I'm going to sit this one out, and let it tell you whatever story you imagine :)

This is a behind-the-scenes shot, taken at almost 1am at The Enchanted Forest, in Austin, TX (and yes...there really is a place called The Enchanted Forest here. Gotta love Austin!).

You will be seeing several photos from this shoot, over the next few days, as I finalize the post-production on them :)

Model - Jessa

Now just a shadow of what it once was, the Cathedral of Junk (in Austin, TX) was an impressive wonder to behold. Unfortunately, because of a building permit problem with the city, much of it had to be dismantled in order to stay within compliance.

I am fortunate to have had the privilege of shooting there (with Jessa, even) long-before that debacle ever happened. And even more fortunate that the owner of the Cathedral let us spend a few hours there on a day it was normally closed to the public :)

More digging through my photo archives for images I am using in my new book for FlatBooks.com (site by well-known photographer, Trey Ratcliff)...more on that book, once the release date is solidified.

I've been enjoying looking at these photos. Years have passed, since I've last looked at these...it's like a time-capsule :)

Model » Kristin (BMG Model Management)
Makeup & Styling » Jessa Peters

Kristin is a "new" model who recently signed with BMG Model Management. This image is from a shoot we did to develop her professional portfolio...and we accomplished a lot, that day.

Jessa did makeup and styling, but she also served as the modeling coach...which only made this shoot way too easy :)

She gained +42 Modeling Skill, that day.

From the book cover shoot with Kristin and Jessa:
