When I was very young, one of my eldest brother’s friends dressed up as Count Dracula for Halloween. As the story goes, I found him in our bathroom putting the last touches of makeup on. He noticed me, gestured and then I screamed and kept screaming until he took all the make up off, so I could see that he was safe and alive and not a monster.
 
I remember that gesture – it’s the only memory that I have from that experience. He reached out his hand to me, when he realized that I was terrified. He beckoned me to not be afraid, but to approach. I remember thinking “I know you and I shouldn’t be afraid of you – but I’m terrified because you have become a monster.”

THIS is one of the many sources of storytelling in photography: your memories that evoke powerful emotion. During my shoot with Breezy at one point she smiled and for a second I was that little boy again, transfixed and terrified because this wonderful human was transforming (in my imagination) into a monster.
 
So I asked her to beckon to me and see if I could tempt my fate, once more.

Shutterfest HYPE – Gelled Glamour Photography by Reality Reimagined

So excited to be returning to Shutterfest next week, to not only teach, but also launch two major projects that mean a lot to me. This community of artists has been a home to me for so many years and I am grateful to be able to make a difference for a wonderful group of people.
 
One of the classes I will be teaching is gel lighting for photography and showing folks how to create images like these featuring an incredible talent!

Reminder Of The Journey – Supergirl Photoshop Composite Art By Reality Reimagined

It’s interesting how our careers can take us into so many directions, so many possibilities and yet when we return to the first causes, the first joys and inspirations, we are suddenly reminded of WHY we went on this journey in the first place.
 
I see before me a whole new horizon of possibility that I have been moving toward for years now. Creating artwork like this (as I did when Reality Reimagined was first started) shows me how long the road has been and how much further I still have yet to discover and travel.
 
My first composite art for Reality Reimagined was of Supergirl, flying above the Earth. Today I see the same hero, watching over that horizon of possibility.

Presence and Admiration: Gelled Glamour Photography by Reality Reimagined

There is a presence about this man that I admire and hope that I exude the same when I walk into a room.
 
He smiles and connects with you in seconds. Genuinely interested in who you are, what motivates your work and the stories in between. And we had a lot of well placed laughs and suit coat buttons to overcome. Thrilled to finally work with an incredibly talented individual and I look forward to the journey ahead at the upcoming Shutterfest 21 photography conference – Gary will be one of the talents in two of the three classes I will be teaching.


 
It’s going to be a blast!!
