Up And Coming Child Actress London Lorena


A year has gone by since this shoot took place, but I can’t believe I didn’t blog these! So without further ado, I introduce to you London Lorena! This vibrant little girl from Brooklyn wants to be an actress and print model. Her mother saw her potential and did the right thing by coming to me for some headshots.

London can sing, dance, do impersonations and has such a bright and dynamic personality. I hear she’s been successful at her most recent audition for PBS/Sprout. If all goes well, ill be sharing a video of her soon! Reach out to me on the contact page if you want to create some beautiful images, and/or comp cards for your aspiring child actor.

Hello Mr. Guinness :  )

2011WingFest069

Hopped inside to find lots of families and, what seemed like, old friends just letting loose…

2011WingFest077

…and being silly…

2011WingFest078

…and laughing like no one is watching…

2011WingFest079

…and cozying up with one another.

2011WingFest080

Hey guys, I hear that WingFest is an ideal place to meet a new lady-friend.

Just as the sun began to set, I doubled back to chat with the ladies of East End  Bar & Grill, then turned around…

2011WingFest095

…and caught this shot. Seeing this precious little girl just makes my ovaries hurt. lol!

2011WingFest097

Do you see the chicken carved onto the Dukes BBQ pumpkin? It has a crown.

Another all-time favorite image of mine! This photograph captures the entire day in one single frame. The t-shirt says, “The Ultimate Wingman”

Headshots for Comedian, Rick Knight


Without further ado here are a few of my faves from the shoot I did with Rick Knight. These pics will be used to create his comp card. So instead of going silly like in the Chop Shop shoot, we decided to go a bit more traditional. Hopefully casting directors will appreciate how different he looks in the same lighting just based on his expression. Sidebar: Why do i feel as though Rick is channeling Ray Liotta in the first image? lol!

The Chopshop pics are famous!


I have been doing a lot of private shoots lately, basically my clients are requesting that I keep the pictures off of my blog. I respect my clients privacy, so that’s why I’ve been so incognito recently. Today, I took a gander at my Flickr feed and saw this:

If you can’t see whats on the tiny icon, it is this picture from The Chopshop shoot that I did with comedians, Rick Knight and Andre McSween last October.

So apparently the pic was chosen by a random visitor on to my Flickr photostream, to be a featured on a Caption Competition website in the UK…the responses are, well… read them for yourselves LOL!!!

My favorite caption is the second one, “Well, Marty,” said Doc Brown, “At least most of the car’s gone back to 1955.”

What’s yours? Even better, caption it, id love to see what you come with!

Sharif and Rick, Junkyard Dogs


What happens when you put two comedians and a dog in a junkyard?

Sharif64bwWM

A lot of laughter! LOL!!!!!

In the fall, I had the pleasure of shooting Comedian, Andre McSween (Sharif) and his partner Rick Knight for “The Chop Shop”, a show they produced and starred in. This was my most hilarious gig to date! Even during editing, I came down with a case of the  giggles (lol!). In case you’re wondering, YES, I have shot Andre before!

Finally, here’s a full frame of the dog (who is very friendly btw) pulling Rick away from Andre. Feel free to check out the rest of the set by going to my Flickr page. There are some goodies there that are not featured. Enjoy!
