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.
