I get such a thrill out of photographing something different, something that I have never photographed before. I find that it gives me a real creative rush when I encounter something new and have to get artistic with it, while at the same time, adapting to the change of scenery.
This was exactly the case on Friday, when I got together with Abby and Kate for a portrait session for their new company. I have photographed both Abby and Kate before (Abby, more than once), and I always love getting together with clients again. Abby and Kate recently started up their own company, through which they teach dance and dance at bars and nightclubs. Here’s the only caveat, though – they are “dancing” while suspended from straps, sometimes as high as 10 or 15 feet in the air.
I know – unreal, isn’t it?]]>Vice Lounge, in Niagara Falls. I’d like to send out a quick, personal thank-you to Mike Drolias, one of the owners of Vice Lounge for allowing us the use of his space (and time) on Friday. It was the perfect location for this kind of session, and I am really looking forward to working with Mike and the guys on some future projects, as well.
I’d also like to thank Jaime and the lovely ladies at Textures Hair Salon, who did a bang-up job with Abby and Kate’s hair and make-up. I love collaborating with such amazing and creative artists – they really help make the images go from great to amazing.
