It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you, song writer and musician, Jessica Domingo! On May 16, 2013, she appeared and performed on a Los Angeles television show: TV18. On June, 26, 2013 I completed a 14 hour photo shoot capturing images for her soon to be released album “Dream”. Jessica is smart, witty and working hard to make her dreams come true. I personally find her music a breath of fresh air and I am honored for the opportunity to work with her on this project.
On my webpage in the fashion portfolio, I have added a couple new images of Jessica from that photo shoot.
I would also like to thank Ron Reeder, owner of Ballard Foto Studio, where I finished up the last part of my 14 hour photo shoot day at his studio. Ron’s studio setup made it possible to complete this project on a high note.
Additional thanks goes out to model and makeup artist Justine Marie who I recently photographed on June 28, 2013. Right from the start I knew this was going to be a great collaboration. I had the pleasure to network with a great photographer John Shiel at his studio where I photographed Justin Marie. Thank you both for a great shoot.
I am currently looking to find a photo agent that can help manage my workload and provide new opportunities to expand my business. So, for those of you who work in the industry reading my blog, please pass the word on. I never knew that fashion photography would be so rewarding; however, the clients I have helped market their product and vision has been rewarding. Now it’s time for an agent.
In parting, I would like to recognize some photographers that continue to inspire me. I’ve said this before, and I will say it again, these photographers I consider some of the best in the world; their work continues challenges me to up my game, I still take time out of my day to thumb through their photography on the web and their books I’ve purchased. These artists help charge my batteries and I’d like to take this time to thank a few who inspire me. So, that being said, a heartfelt thank you to:
Last, but not least
To all who are reading my blog, may your next shot be a photgasm like the ones I have. Life does not get better than that.
