We got the July cover of GNC’s monthly publication, Wellbella magazine. They did a feature story on Carol and her new book, and decided to go with an image that was different than their standard cover format. I think they did a great job and were a total pleasure to work with.

Above are three samples of the photographs we included in Carol Alt’s Easy Sexy Raw recipe book that came out on Monday (May 1st, 2012). None of the above dishes have been cooked in any way – everything is considered “raw” food.

It’s now available online from Amazon.com or your local book store.

My friend Fabio is a costume designer for stage productions and I saw this beautiful leather corset sitting on his table. I really wanted to use it for a portrait shoot before it got sent off to the production venue.

Dafna
March 26th, 2012



One of my beloved grandmother’s favorite sayings was “tell it like it is”. She believed that putting your truth out there – being honest (but still kind) – was a better alternative to fooling oneself or fooling others. Dafna is one of those people who I admire for putting her truth “out there”. For personal reasons, she decided to shave all her hair off, so our photo shoot was centered around photographing her in a way that conveyed the vulnerability, as well as her strength and her beauty.

The top image is part of an on-going series of close-up portraits, a sort of “tell it like it is” photograph. This series has an intentional “raw” feel to it so all subjects are asked to wear little to no makeup. I also ask my subjects to bring items that they would normally wear on any given day or to bring something that has sentimental value to them, to add interest and authenticity.

For the second photograph, I’d recently acquired a flower backdrop which was added to my bag of photography tricks, knowing that the right time to use it would eventually show itself. I thought that playing traditional roles against each other – (feminine) flowers with a (traditionally masculine) shaven head – would be worth exploring with her.

With most shoots, I try to capture an image that I know will become a black and white photograph, even though we are shooting in color. The bottom photograph was set up for just that purpose.






Opened in 1965, the infamous Clermont Lounge is located in the basement of the Clermont Motor Hotel at 789 Ponce De Leon Avenue, in the Poncey-Highland neighborhood of Atlanta, GA. The Clermont has survived multiple attempts at being closed by the Atlanta city government, and has established a nationwide reputation for its kitschy atmosphere and unusual dancers. A true dive bar with many unconventional dancers.

The above photographs, from top to bottom: Jessica, one of the dancers; Big Bill, security; Hetty, one of the dancers who has been there for over thirty years; Cynthia, one of the day dancers and; Haley, one of the bartenders.

A special thank you to everyone at the Clermont Lounge, and to Michael West and Caroline Petters for helping – in good spirit – with this photography project.
