More About My Photographic Series

I told you a little bit about my new photographic series last week.

I started working on the series yesterday and wanted to share this image with you.

My Great Aunt Frances Reid owned her home in Brentwood from 1968-2010 (42 years) and since she passed away our family has to sell her home.

In a perfect world I would be able to twirl a magic wand and have the home stay exactly like it is forever -- a museum of sorts. But since that is not possible I thought it was appropriate that I photograph the home. Not so much the rooms but the little things.

My Aunt Francie had a wonderful book collection so I thought it was important to photograph it.

My dear friend Ron Marasco came over yesterday and we went through all of her theatre books. Ron helped me tremendously figure out what was a rare treasure and what was as he calls it "readily available." I could not have done it without him.

In going through the books yesterday we found a book that belonged to choreographer Jerome Robbins (dated 1946), a book signed by playwright Moss Hart given to Francie's husband actor Philip Bourneuf and a script with a note from film/theatre director Elia Kazan.

I cannot wait to share more of this project with you.

Richard Cummings, Jr.

There was a time in my life when I watched a lot of network television. This was before HBO, F/X and Showtime got into the series television world.

Two of my favorite shows from the early 1990's were "thirtysomething" and "Northern Exposure."

After a ten year acting hiatus Richard Cummings, Jr., who I was already familiar with from recurring roles on both of those series, asked me to shoot his headshots.

I was very honored that he asked me and we had a great time shooting these recently one Saturday afternoon.

This image was one of my favorites.

New Photographic Series

I am starting to work on a new photographic series. A little info (or maybe more like a tease)

-- It has huge time constraints
-- It is probably one of the most personal projects I will ever work on


More next week..........

Aidan Maxwell Walter

I went to junior high school and high school with Mark Walter and Robin Zander. Mark and Robin are now married and Robin brought Aidan to me recently for new headshots.

I've never had the experience until now of two people I knew as a kid having a child themselves.

It's like seeing Robin and Mark as I remember them as kids all mixed into one kid -- Aidan!!

Use RedBubble to Purchase Greeting Cards and Prints

I found this great new company called RedBubble where you can purchase any of my images as a greeting card, canvas print, matted print or framed/matted print. Talk about making my job easy.

I shoot, I upload and they do the rest. Most of the images I have on the site are my floral images but I'm sure as time progresses my repertoire on RedBubble will expand.

In the meantime, enjoy.

In Honor of Valentine's Day - A Special Kolo Essex Journal

As many of you know I'm a big fan of Kolo products. I especially love using their Essex journals.

In honor of Valentine's Day I created a special Essex journal.

The journal includes images from an engagement session I did with Heidi Jo and Matthew along with some vintage Valentine's Day postcards, some of my Through the Viewfinder (TTV) images and a quote from George Sand.

This journal can be given to the couple and they can add mementos that have special meaning to them (movie tickets, a pressed flower, a book of matches, photos from a wonderful day spent together) along with notes to each other.

The possibilities are endless.
