A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of working on a series of images promoting my favorite painter and artist, Susana Amundarain. Playing with textures, color, objects and canvas are things I’ve always loved to do in her studio, so being able to share our workspace and collaborate once again, is a real treat!! Over the last year she has been creating incredible studio jewelry. The earrings, necklaces, and bracelets are more like miniature paintings (on canvas), and unlike the larger traditional pieces, you can touch-away! Thank you Melody W. for modeling and allowing me to wrap you up in canvas, Kelly Joell for the makeup & hair. You girls were awesome, it was so much fun!! Here are a few before and after shots from the session and upcoming promotional campaign. Stay tuned!
You would probably never find this man on Dr. Dre or Ful’s marketing campaigns…not their demographic?….well, Dr. Dre, think again! you may be missing out on a whole new market for your stuff!
I recently found these outtakes from a photo shoot last fall, which I took as we walked to our destination. I’m so glad I was able to click a few frames of these passersby (without being obnoxiously intrusive)…It not only goes to show that you are NEVER too old to be electronically fashionable, but it really got me thinking about the true meaning of “cool.” Hey, why wear those little noisy hearing aids when you can use “one of the lightest, loudest, and most durable headphones ever” (in beatsbydre.com own words). Not to mention your Ful Mini-Sling, and a pro wireless lavalier microphone for top quality sound. Products for the “cool” kids and pros? Maybe, but DEFINITELY for the real “life” pros that just need to hear a little better! …now that’s REALLY cool!
As they walked by us on their intimate park-tour, we all agreed he was definitely cooler than any of us. Just awesome.
I finally got my copy of ECCO’s CD!! …and to sum it up in one word: AAAAAMAZING!!
If you don’t know who they are, you MUST check them out (www.eastcoastchamberorchestra.com), AND get the CD (of course)! They are dear friends, but also one of the most talented groups of musicians out there today. Period. We were honored to be chosen to create their promo & sizzle videos, as well as being able to photograph their intense and fun recording session with Susan and Silas! Many of those photos, as well as several others taken during rehearsals and during a walk on a snowy mountain, are included in their CD artwork (so yet another reason to get the CD, especially the hard copy!)
The CD features Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings in C major; Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony in C minor; & Geminiani/Wiancko’s “La Follia” Variations for String Orchestra.
I’m so proud of these guys (and gals!), and look forward to their continued success. Please keep on making musical magic for the rest of us!
