JD's blog

I am on the eve of launching my web page.  Over the past four months, I've been working on building my portfolio and have had more portrait shoots in that span than in the past year prior.  It's been very exciting, challenging and rewarding as I've learned new lighting techniques, met many new people and have a much better sense of what works and what doesn't for me when setting up a shoot.

I expect this is just the beginning of what I intend to be a career of image-making.


Shooting with Heaven

Another recent shoot I had was with Heaven Jones, a very talented model.  This was the second time we've worked together and it was a lot of fun.  I also found out that Childish Gambino sounds a lot like P-Funk and I thought he'd sound like some auto-tune guy, so I was educated during the shoot as well!

 I'm looking forward to some more creative shoots with her.   Here's a sample of what we were able to produce.

Fitness shoot with Laura T.

Hello all!

It's been quite a while since I posted a blog and it had also been several months since I'd done a creative shoot.  I was lucky to have a friend of mine that has modeled for me before agree to do a fitness-oriented shoot.  It was a great session and I wanted to share one of my favorites.

Here it is!

I recently had a very enjoyable headshot session with a woman who needed shots both for her LinkedIn account and for a student directory.  

It was just another piece of evidence for myself that I have embarked on a very enjoyable career.  I love working with people and providing them with images they love!
