Tara’s Head Shot session.

Early this afternoon Tara stopped by to have some head shots taken. After a failed start in the oppressive heat we moved inside to the cool, air consitioned studio and thing really began to click. Tara is the whole package. Fun, smart, talented and have to ever seen a set of eyes that were more expressive? We chatted about acting and movies over L7, Soul Coughing and Mazzy Star.  What had started out as a hot and uncomfortable sesssion ended up with us rolling on the floor laughing.

Over the past year I’ve noticed so much improvement in my ability to take bad or difficult situations and flip them to a positive. Something I deem just as important if not more than actual photography skills.

Tara is one of the actors to be featured in the upcoming presentation of the Pulitzer Prize winning, Rabbit Hole. Which opens Friday October 1st at the Chatham Playhouse in Chatham, NJ.

Something different

As of late I’ve been wanting to break away from the more traditional portraiture I’ve been working on for the last year or so. Nothing drastic but something to break from the norm I guess. I’ve always had numerous ideas and visuals that I wanted to work on but it’s not always easy to find the right person who shares your ideas and visions. I few months prior I met and photographed Maria. For two people who had met only minutes before our shoot we shared incredible chemistry. As we took pictures and talked she mentioned her interest in theatrical makeup and some very artistic concepts including something more gothic. At the time I kind of shyed away from the idea. I think I had  just become so comfortable  with the style I had been trying to perfect for so long. But as time passed I was getting a little bored and wanted to try something a little different. I got in touch with Maria and over the next week or so we started bouncing ideas off one another. I was getting a lot of strong visuals about what I wanted to accomplish and Maria did more than her part in relaying her ideas and visions. I’ve been trying very hard to bring some of my ideas and concepts to life. Sometimes taking something from the imagination stage to and actual creative work flow takes time but I think we got off to a pretty good start. There are a number of projects I hope to work on with Maria and others. I really look forward to bringing them to life.
