Yes, it's me...I cannot believe I am breaking down to submit a pretty normal portrait, but it is nice to attach a face to a body of work...I admit that my curiosity gets the better of me sometimes when I see others work.
I think I shot my worse half though....only kidding.
Sometimes a simple offering is the most true, uplifting and heartfelt.
I have another similar pic in my gallery, but this one I tried some different things with. I still like the blown out look in the back, but coloring is totally different and I left in the tattoo in this one (not sure if this was the right decision).
Concept: Offering of oneself without the need for reward.
This is dedicated to my dear friend Greg, who is a DJ (and the model here)...we always try to encourage one another when we get down about our respective endeavors (his djing and mine photography (case ya didn't guess that by now)).
He has been so incredible with giving me support.
I hope to be able to do the same for him, as I love music more than almost any other artform (photog included).
The message: if you put your mind to it and work your fingers to the bone, you almost cannot fail (given a dash of luck)...so good luck G, and all you other music-makers out there.
Taken on a boat ride in Vietnam's Halong Bay. There are over 3000 islands rising from the beautiful green waters over an area of 1500 square kilometers. The mountain-like formations in the distance are made of limestone and many are hallowed out allowing for cave exploration.
The boats and junks sail peacefully over these waters just as they did over 100 years ago. I felt as if I was transported back in time on this glorious day...so I tried capturing this old feel with this picture of the bay and boat lead by the wooden dragon at its head.
Every crystalline drop contains a story....
Each one has its own nuance of emotion...
All contain a tear, a bead of sweat,
yet each possesses an element of cleansing.
He moves over and through each drop
Indulging their memory
For at least this one moment in time.
Repost - sorry DA messed something up
Flash: Nikon SB-80DX bounced off ceiling.
Full view for full effect....thank you.
Riding on a boat on the Mekong Delta, in Vietnam, this boy climbed on the side of the boat and tried selling us some dragon fruit ( a yummy and colorful fruit from this region). This is taken through a window, yet he seemed to stair in my eyes without any barriers whatsoever.
