Art Portraits

Take your portraits to the next level. Instead of the usual studio portrait that you can get anywhere, next time have an art portrait designed. There are many options and there are a few examples on my website. This portrait started out as a typical portrait with studio lighting. I started with the color version:

Then I did some enhancements to the skin and eyes. Also neatening up the stray hairs and converting it to black and white as shown here:

Then I took it to the next level and this is the completed version:

Cloud 9 Salon and Spa Fashion Show for Charity

On Saturday, November 8, 2008, Cloud 9 Salon and Spa will be holding their Annual Fashion Show for Charity. This event benefits 3 charities, PediPlace, New Horizons Children's Home and the Sue Weaver C.A.U.S.E. I will be donating my services again this year to photograph the event. One thing that is different this year is that I will be set up to offer Portraits to the guests to further benefit the charities. You can have your portrait taken on an elegant background for $20 and that will include a 5x7 Portrait delivered in a mat ready for framing. I will also offer packages and other print sizes that can be ordered that evening or later on my website. This is a great way to help out these 3 charities. As always I will also have a Certificate for a Portrait Session and 1 - 11x14 print that you can bid on in the silent auction. Please visit the Cloud 9 website for more details and information.

C.A.U.S.E. Certification Launch

Seven years after the death of Sue Weaver, The Sue Weaver C.A.U.S.E. launches a consumer safety program in her memory. C.A.U.S.E. Certification is designed to better protect consumers and employers by offering a means of hiring safer employees, contractors and subcontractors by requiring annual criminal background checks. At Visions the Women's Expo at the Dallas Market Hall on August 5th members of the C.A.U.S.E. board launched 200 butterflies celebrating the launch of C.A.U.S.E. Certification. I was there to capture the event for the organization. Please visit the C.A.U.S.E. website to read Sue's story and learn more about the organization and certification.

New Year, New Blog Site

I have decided to start the New Year with a new blog site. In the past month I have attended the PPA National Convention in Tampa and several seminars. In addition, I will be attending the Southwest PPA Convention here in Arlington. While attending these seminars and conventions I have learned about many new techniques and new products that I am excited about adding to my services. Keep watching in the upcoming months about the many new additions. Here are a few of my favorite images from 2007.....
