You may recognize Lora from some of my Budo Fight pictures, she is one of the ring girls for the event. Lora and I had been trying to get together to shoot for quite some time, she had torn her ACL and was doing rehab and getting back it shape from the time off. She kept telling my she wasn't as flexible as she used to be, but as you can see below, I had a hard time believing that.
Lora had wanted to do some sports modeling and we decided also to do some more glam work. After we got done in the studio,we went outside and let her climb around some of discarded metal in the area.
Ok catching up on some posts this week.
I recently had a fabulous session Julie here at the studio. This was the first modeling shoot that Julie had ever done and I have to say the camera liked her.
Here are a few shots from our session.
Kind of a young Meryl Streep look.
some serious hair tossing going on
Artists get inspiration in many different ways, sometimes it's a place, sometimes a color, sometimes it's a person. I was surfing the web a while back and came across a project that the the great photographer Douglass Kirkland had done for Vanity Fair Italia to celebrate the magazines 50th anniversary. Kirkland did "remakes" of 25 famous scenes taken from Italian cinematic classics, with well-known contemporary Italian actors playing the legends of the past.
One picture that struck me in particular was Kirkland's remake of La Ragazza con la Valiglia 1960 (Girl with Suitcase) by director Valeri...
I had the good fortune to work with the dancers at Academie de Ballet Classique (ABC) this summer to create some great portraits for their production of the classic Peter & the Wolf. I spent the day shooting portraits of all the dancers (from pre-school age on up) at the ABC studio. A few weeks later I was also able to meet up with the 2 of the lead dancers-Peter (Kendra K.) and the Wolf (Lauren W,) in Sisters, where we did an outdoor shoot in the woods. Lauren and Kendra were such great sports trouncing through the forest--even with Lauren's sore knee-- letting me set them up on some precarious...
It's been a while since I posted last, been out shooting and processing, but now I am catching up on this side of things. I have several new shoots to post that I'll be working on in the coming days.
So with out further adieu here we go...
I again had the good fortune to work with the very versatile model Crystal to do some work for her modeling portfolio (you may remember some of the work we did together earlier, you can see it here). It's always fun to work with Crystal, she brings great energy and spirit to our sessions. We did a couple of shoots this day (one conceptual session that I'll...
I'd like to introduce William O'Connell, the latest Images By Tracy Smith senior high school studio rep from Bend Sr. High class of 2012.
William is an accomplished swimmer for the Bend High School Lava Bears Swim Team. During his short swimming career William has won both district and state titles/medals and plans to continue competing during his Sr. year, with his eye on collecting even. William was a pleasure to work with during our session and I look forward to following his progress this year in the pool.
If you know William or are a Bend High student with questions about getting...
May and June have turned in to dance months at the studio and with my event company. 2 sets of dance school portraits (one done and one this weekend) and 2 performances (on done and one in week).
I don't know if I have photographed anything more cute than the group of kids I had the opportunity make portraits for a couple weeks ago. These kids are all members of the Dance Velocity dance school--which my 2 daughters go to for their dance classes. These little dancers ranged in age from 3 to 11, and from first time dancers to "seasoned veterans". We spent the day shooting both individual and group...
