I don’t do this often but I was a little bored today. So with that said here are some photos that illustrates the process I go through when painting a piece. In this case my alternative movie poster for Rob Zombie’s re-make of John Carpenter’s Classic Halloween.
The other day I was editing some photos when the phone rang and I talked to a guy who’d found my photography business on Google and is wanting to do a quick shoot of himself & his girlfriend. I pointed out the less than stellar weather but if he still wanted to shoot I’d be game. I met with Bexter & Jamedith his girlfriend here in Murfreesboro, TN and off we went to shoot. We were able to hit multiple locations and in the end I was pleased with what we were able to do in bad weather and only an hour’s time. Best of all I email Bexter & Jamedith the edited proofs and they loved the finished results. A happy client makes a happy customer. One added plus is this, according to Bexter my rating on Google was a 4.5 out of 5 and that is why he chose me to shoot them. I was looking to convey a sense of drama, I think I succeeded.
Not to diss on European mythologies but can we seriously have some fuckin’ recognition that there are religions and mythologies that are not Greek or Norse. Why the fuck did I learn about the Greeks 6 times but we never fucking talked about Africa or even really the mythologies and beliefs of native peoples?
I once had a model ask if I shot “Implied” my response “No Love, when I push the shoot button I shoot for real! Hesitation sucks”. She just stared at me, and stared. So finally I took my top off and angled my camera so no nipple showed and did duckface too. She still just stared. I told her then “Hey look lady, I ant shooting in the buff for free! I gotta have my standards”. Crickets mate, crickets.
