News just in: I now have a blog on my website!
Check it out for an indepth look behind the scenes of some of my earlier works. This post shares gehind the Scenes with jeweler Anna V.

Inspired by the shape of the jewellery, a magical portrait of the jeweler comes to life, thanks to a mix of still life, portraiture and Photoshop.

Thanks +John Getchel - I actually enjoy doing it although it can take a rather long time.
Thank you +Paul Johnston, I usually fond that the more I plan, the better the result it, but always leaving room for surprise and serendipity on a shoot. And sometimes things just don't work as planned so I have to freestyle.
Thanks +Christopher Germano, I always love to see you pop by.
+Jim Migliore thank you very much, I guess I have to write some more now, huh?!
FOr those of you have already read all three so far, I apologize because I will be linking watch one separately here to G+. And then I will think about starting to work on some new ones.

Free Fall The Autumn Fairy Makes Her Escape...
I started playing with shadows in honour of today's Self Portrait Sunday theme and somehow ended up on a magical journey where I found a fairy trapped in a cage in a forest. Thank goodness I was there to set her free...

Desert Rose
Away from the darkness and toward the bright. My friend and sometimes muse Jennifer Bruce agreed to pose for my latest experiment. I wanted to create a more illustrative style portrait. I was inspired by our local-to-Oakland Morcom Rose Garden aka The Jbae Amphitheater of Roses, Franciscan Desert Rose crockery, my love of pink and green paired together and Cris Crisman’s Flower Child portrait.

Yesterday in the US was National Renter's Day of Action. A group of protesters gathered in Oakland at lunchtime to rally against rising and unaffordable rents in Alameda County. It was heartbreaking to listen to the stories of people struggling. You might be doing everything you can to care for your family and yet it is still not enough. One man spoke of how, despite working as a restaurant manager, the only way he can house his family is to take advantage of living in a shelter.

+Sam Breach thank you very much. we as a people, and a nation must find solutions to help those in need, because even if some turn the help down at least they know that there are people out there in this country that are willing to help and it shouldn't have to take money to help. food programs, finding recourses, and other things of that nature can be helpful to finding some kind of help for those who need food clothing, and shelter, and what about those who lost their jobs, or are trying to find ways to put food in their children's mouth clothing, and shelter for their children. this country has a lot to do as far as living up to what they verbally promise. they feed off of others struggles like leeches.

Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide; _

Story
Tagline
Art. Photography. Creativity.
Introduction
I am an English-born digital artist and photographer now living in the San Francisco Bay Area. On G+ I have discovered a magical community who have formed around the art of photography. 

I help run a Community called Brain to Frame that focuses on how to create conceptual photographic imagery all the way from initiating an idea to producing the end result.
