A Few Portrait Stories Entertainment




Richard Petty

Richard Petty The King Of NASCAR what more can I say. Yes, Mr. Petty is very kind and alive with personality. This shoot I had choices of locations including the museum and garage locations. When someone mentioned his family home under renovation I was more than happy to sign the release  when offered. The home is located on the museum property that was his family home now under renovation to be included in his museum. To not select the obvious icon item then to take someone of his importance on a blind shoot was a risk. The location once inside became obvious.  Mr. Petty is sitting on his homestead family room hearth. Once the shoot was over the final image felt purposeful as it accents the importance of his interview his foundation and not fame.

I do have a few funny stories but if I told you I asked him to sing happy birthday on video to a friend you may think less of me..... but I did & he did. Thank you to Mr. Petty for a wonderful portrait session.



Melinda Morris Zanoni
Melinda is a bio-coastal high power entertainment attorney with a public relations team. The interview was interesting as a photographer. She was comfortable being around cameras, it was a nice treat. Her casual but business demeanor translates well to her story. I generally have a take away story. Mine would be her reference to a brilliant talent, immediately the secret club members made a connection.



The Rucker Sisters
The Rucker Sisters are WeTV television reality personalities. This image was documented in a space used for show interviews. Understanding industry standard would be to showcase ultra sexy including individually powerful poses as a collection I thought why. We shot as a family after all they are sisters. I was fortunate to document their interview but found myself sitting at the table enjoying their interview like I was a Rucker sister. It was a great interview, fun casual shoot with glam.

A Few Portrait Stories Fashion/Arts


Gregory Albert
After meeting Gregory a couple of times it was a pleasure photographing him in his location Douglas Montaldos Furs. He was more than accommodating allowing me to place him with the main display fur. I fell in love with the colors in the natural light of the window and felt it would complement his wardrobe and smile.


 
Keith Cradle
Keith is one of those people with unique star quality. I'm uncertain what his future direction is as we hinted politics and his lips were sealed. His current work is community/arts based including chairing several boards. Being smart I hitched my support to any of his future endeavors as I am a fan of the photographer Peter Souza story. 



Linda Martinez
Linda is special to me. We have worked together on a few magazine spreads and her professional attitude on set is extremely desirable. Linda's eye for fashion is a rare talent. Watching her work she is decisive with selections and has a way to make her subject feel comfortable in clothing. When a subject is styled by Linda I know the shoot is going to be successful. Linda's fashion success can be noticed with her consistent television appearances and now ownership of her new boutique in desirable Plaza Midwood. I can only suggest to get StyledNow with Linda before you can't make your appointment.

Carolina Style SS15 - Cover & Portrait Stories




A total of 12 portraits were shot for and cover STYLE The Carolinas Most Stylish 2015 book produced by STYLE Media. STYLE Media includes Carolina Style, Charlotte Style and Style Charleston.  

A Few Portrait Stories


Todd Albaum 
I photographed Todd in his location. Noticing his foot traffic my goal became keeping it simple. I decided to select a simple vignette background and move forward. The master image is on the left of the book page.


Tie My Knot
Leone and Kim were photographed on the third floor of the Dye Stuff building. When they arrived I decided to photograph them in a more intimate way as business partners in natural light. We left my space, took a seat on the 3rd floor and had great conversation.


MAP Management
Patrick, Ayman & Alejandro who is who I cant remember because they felt more like a a team with unique personalities. The painting was my suggested background when asked. Being a nice group of guys promising the art has not been in print I knew this was the background. It was important to them so it was my goal. Master image on the left.


Heather McDonnell
How to photograph a popular cupcake maker. Laugh because we both know its going to happen. What I like most about the image it has hints of sexy cupcake maker. You may notice in the master image on the left showing a touch of leg while the background weight draws you into her beautiful inviting eye color. She was simply a delight to meet and easy to photograph. 


Mike Watson
After chatting on a rainy day over coffee we shot his portrait.  The master image on the left you will notice a calm vibe that Mike possesses in his arm lean with the weight of the background centered on his eyes to pull the viewer in. It was a nice cup of coffee and conversation.

Dion Williams
 Dion brought his family and I used this to my advantage. We met at the NASCAR museum to capture his portrait as he is pro football turned pro NASCAR. I felt a different portrait vibe when meeting his family so we moved to the Convention Center. What you will notice in the master image on the left is Dions relaxed posture. This is where I took advantage of my opportunity by asking his wife to assist with frame approval(s). I find asking a loved one if this 'looks real' works very well. A pure side note Dions wife is also into cars and has a career to envy.
