Happy New Year 2014, Exciting things to come

Happy New Year 2014! 

At Last 2013 is behind us, or at least behind me! My question is, Why don't they skip 13 in the calendar like they do on elevators, just sayin. 2013 was a year of great challenges and of great successes, not least of which the Time Magazine Advertisement among a slew of commercial photography projects and editorial features galore. I truly feel blessed to have made and maintained some wonderful friendships and business associates (all friends) this past year. Thank you all for helping make 20-"13" bearable :)

To get us caught up from my last blog post, I've been fortunate to work with the lovely and talented Cat Shell aka Kitty Carmichael and her band at the Regent Lounge Miami Beach. If you haven't been to their show on Thursday Nights at 10:30pm till your blurry than you have truly been missing out! Not only are they a fabulously talented bunch, they are just plain FUN! Run don't walk to their next show. I was blessed to work with Cat not once, but twice, I must have been a good girl this year! Here's a sampling:

December's Editorial spreads were abundant including a couple of genre I seldom shoot such as this Jewelry spread styled by the stellar prop stylist Pamela Jean and published in Naples own Gulf Shore Life December Visitor Annual. 

Of course I would be remiss if I didn't mention Art Basel 2013. My good friend and alumni Matthu Placek had a one man show at the YOUNG ARTS FOUNDATION featuring his 3D portrait of Marina Abramovic. To say I was proud and frankly blown away by my good friend is an understatement. He is one to watch. On that topic I hosted one of my dearest friends Abbey Drucker for Basel weekend. She also brought me on as a producer for a shoot with the Editorialist editorialist.com . Her shoot was ablaze with luxury fashions from the worlds top  designers and their spring 2014 ready-to-wear collections. Here's a little behind the scenes photo of the artist at work.

Please stay tuned for an exciting announcement regarding a very new venture involving something I've always had a passion for and want to share with friends near and far, coming soon.

 

Cheers!
