Probably my favorite project this month has been the creation of Orcatek’s Angels.

To become an angel too, just book a  boudoir photo session.

Then I had a chance to work with Kyris for his model portfolio.  He was great to shoot.


And of course I have been teaching.  Since my last post (I’ve been busy), I have taught over 100 photography students between classes and private lessons.

Busy, but fun week

This time of year the studio gets very busy.   Of course boudoir photography clients lead the requests this time of year, a surprising number of maternity clients having been booking for December.   Each day seems to hold a new surprise.

Saturday I shots some behind the scenes shots of K. T Cools new music video.  Great song and a great group of people on the set.  Everyone was great to work with.  I also helped them get some models for the video.   Here is a quick shot of K. T Cool.
