The Box Keeper

The girl guarded the box carefully. She wondered if it was filled with lightness?

The Box Keeper

One of my recent fashion editorials has just been published in SALYSÉ magazine. This was an all day shoot with a full team, Seven costume changes  and amazing location scouted for me by G+ friend, Ed Sweeney. I am going to publish one image from the shoot each day this week here on G+ so that the story will unfold in this album. But if you are an impatient type then you can head over to the latest issue of SALYSÉ and see the full set there:

Brilliant Portrait Classes
[not my picture, read on]
This is the last time this class will be available so sign up now if you are interested.
I fully recommend these online portrait workshops in which you study 8 well known photographers, learn about their lighting and portrait techniques and then use what you learn to inspire you to create portraits of your own! The class is intermediate to advanced because you should have some equipment for lighting and be familiar with how to use it. 
I owe so much to the creator of the classes +Don Giannatti - he is a generous and patient teacher. 
It also gives you access to a fantastic Group on facebook where all the class enrollees (from all his portrait classes) gather together in community to support each other. 
The fee is Fee for class is a freakin bargain  $75 (one time payment), which covers Eight classes and includes weekly webinars with personal feedback on your submissions for everyone.

It's excellent value, but that said, the budget doesn't always recognize value, sadly and we have to be careful!

With selfies and scanning yourselves being all the rage these days, I thought I would share a scan I took of myself on the photocopier machine way back in 1989. At the time I was holding a 1976 photograph of myself for comparison. I am not sure I have ever been so far ahead of a trend before!

+Blast From The Past with +Isabelle Fortin +Mark Rodriguez  and +Cheryl Cooper and #throwbackthursdays   #tbt  

+Christi Nielsen  thought you would enjoy seeing this ;)

Once upon a time there was a girl, they left her behind. Their Mission was critical, it was dangerous, it was important. But they didn't want to risk taking her with them.

Thank you everyone. The make up artist is also hair! She did a great job of changing the look between shots. It was a busy day. I have just published the next one in the series: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+SamBreach/posts/NBDeKmHyjyz

I want to thank everyone one for the supportive comments. This is Kay, she is an actress and she is my muse for the duration of a portrait class I am taking where we study different photographers every two weeks. This week we were studying Gregory Heisler who is well known for his Environmental portraits. So I asked her if I could photograph her in an environment she is familiar with and she elected the Threading Salon. It was a first for me and quite the challenge. This was in a warehouse building with no natural light, fluorescent tube lighting and old, ugly furniture and I only had one speedlite with me. Evenso, I was happy with the results, especially the second image which conceivably could have taken place anywhere and didn't really have to be in the environment, as it happens. I paired the images together as I was treating it like an editorial, as if it was in a magazine.

Thank you everyone. The stylist was working for an assignment, I was just the photographer. I think this style of pant might be a 'thing' because there were another pair in a very similar style on the same shoot.

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.
