I'm posting mostly over at Quirky Cookery right now, where I play with my food and teach you to have fun with it, too. Come check me out?

Amazing Photos

I don't remember which picture of his that I ran across first. It may have been the crying one I used in a few posts back...I'm not sure, but it doesn't really matter. I followed the watermark on it back to his site and fell in love with some of his work. I contacted him that day and got a response the next, giving me permission to link to his site and to post some of his pictures here...so long as I gave him credit, obviously. And that's exactly what I'm going to do.....

On a side note, the pictures will appear here smaller than they do on his site, so if you see one that strikes you, definitely go view it there....


Artistic and Conceptual

These are a few taken from the Artistic and Conceptual portion of his portfolio (as is the one at the top of this entry). The desciption of that folder is "These photos were taken for no other reason than to attempt the creation of art. Most of them express some kind of concept or feeling. It is up to you to decide what it is."
Notice their expressions...
He has a few other shots similar to this one including a couple nude shots.....an object in the foreground is focused on and the background is blurred out of focus some. Another point on this one...I love how it's completely natural and not Photoshopped (You can tell by noticing that her forehead wasn't smoothed out during an editing process.)
This one is just absolutely gorgeous. So crisp, clean, and full of emotion (although which emotions/thoughts are dependent on the viewer.)

I've always been a sucker for black and white shots. I like the pose and expression, but I do think it could've used slightly more light.
He photographs women much more often than men, and I think it should stay that way. Not many (if any) of the male shots really jump out to me. In fact, I think the only reason I noticed this one is *because* it was a man...not necessarily the photo itself. The eyes are compelling, but it still doesn't have the same effect that many of the other photos do.

More dramatic than the average portraits, my glamour photos seek to glorify the beauty of the female face and form. I use exotic lighting and compositions in these works.
I love this one. This guy certainly has a way of capturing expression. And again, this one appears unedited. If she were posing for a magazine, the hair on her arms would've been almost nonexistant in the end, her tummy (although beautiful as is) probably would've been altered, and the freckles/moles would've been more strategically placed. Sad, but true. I love the sheer beauty in this instead.
Again with the emotion....
This....I don't know about. It almost seems like she needs a Virginia Slim 100 (or the Canadian equivalent if that brand isn't sold there). She's young, but the photo has that feeling....like she just took a drag off a cigarette and is genetly letting the smoke come out of her lips. Elegant, almost.
This just screams attitude to me. I love it, lol.

My internet has gotten incredibly slow over the last few minutes, and I don't have time or patience to continue going through each category. Those were the main two I wanted to touch anyway, so here are just a few more taken out of his others. He has Portraits, Nature, some Commerical Shots, a collection of Pregnancy photos, and some from his various travel experiences (which are still aamzing, by the way, even though they don't fit the norm of what I've been posting here).
Crisp, clean, insightful. (And again, oh so natural...notice the flecks of mascara that weren't edited out of an otherwise perfect shot?)
Cute, huh? It was taken in Thailand, by he way...
I like shots like this, too....

An example of his pregnancy shots. There's another there that shows the woman wearing a suit jacket instead, which instantly says to me "She can be a mother and a businesswoman at the same time."

Here's one from his Performers section....

Okay, this is the last one for now, but isn't he adorable? The titles is "Close to the Heart" which makes it even cuter, lol.
