I thought it might be time to post a few pictures from my day job. Seems like it’s been a while. Above are a few images from my recent shoot with the talented and beautiful Anika Noni Rose. Anika is the voice of Disney’s first African-American princess (hence the last shot in princess garb) in The Princess and the Frog which opens this Friday. You can also check out my words of wisdom on celebrity portraiture along with a couple photos in the December issue of PDN as part of their cover story, “Tips for Making the Most of a Celebrity Shoot”. It’s true that not all celeb shoots are easy. One might say the above shoot was not the easiest I’ve ever had, but ultimately when you remain calm and let your pictures do the talking everything usually works out just fine.
