Sailor Kissing a Nurse

V-J Day: You may have seen the 1945 photograph of a sailor kissing a nurse at Times Square.  The month was August, the United States had declared victory over Japan and Word War II would soon be over. There was much celebration on the streets of New York and this spontaneous kiss was captured by Time-Life photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt, who happened to be at the right place at the right time 🙂

Iconic images like these are timeless works of art to be appreciated, this particular image represents a time in history where there was a feeling of hope and triumph after years of war and uncertainty; to those who lived during those days celebration was something not seen in a long time. The hope that the world war would soon be over was the cause of their jubilee.

Hollywood Film Noir (1940’s Glamour)

For this “Hollywood Film Noir” project we wanted to bring back the classic 1940’s Hollywood look. Images like these were the glamour shots of their time and were common among TV and radio celebrities.  These black and white images create a defining mood by accentuating the highlights and shadows and creating deep contrast. This style of photography was popularized by celebrity photographer George Hurrell.

Meet the model: Courtney is a model from Houston Texas with whom I was able to produce these images. When asked about her inspiration and passion she replied, “I’m inspired by classic, beauty and sensuality. I have a passion for anything art related. I love expressing myself through so many different forms of art!” Makeup was provided by Bella Beauty by Sophia.

CMA Motorcycle Riders

I was hired to photograph a group of motorcycle riders with the Christian Motorcyclists Association (CMA) out of Houston Texas, this was an outdoor urban group shoot that featured the CMA members and their motorcycles; they even had someone show up with a classic / vintage red car!  The shoot was scheduled to take place early Saturday morning; however, the weather report Friday night had rain in the forecast, this almost caused the shoot to get cancelled. If you think wet roads are dangerous when driving a car, try them while riding a motorcycle! Not a good idea. At 5am Saturday morning I received a text from the client saying “We’re a go!” so we went, we shot, we conquered! We all had a good time…and not a drop of rain!
