Cosplayers are cool. Like bow ties.
In filmmaking we make costumes, build sets and find locations, we create dialogue and compose music, we choose actors.
I LOVE taking photos behind the scenes.
Quick, candid, glimpses into what is happening when the subject is just being themselves.
I met Jes Davis many years ago in a faraway place called San Francisco. We did a film together. She played God. As a punk.
It's exactly what I was looking for in the opening lines of my new SciFi multimedia project. Succinct. To the point. Slightly esoteric. Nerdy. A little weird.
Sam Dates Show.
What to say about Sam Dates?
My first shoot with the DC Cosplayers happened to be Halloween themed . . and it kicked ass.
I sit in a few industries that all traditionally expect “specialists” while I have been, and will always be, a jack-of-all-trades.
That was the question I had in mind when I went out with JesXDav to shoot her in her fashion line. Punk and grunge are two of the words she uses to most to describe her style.
It was BlerDCon's first year and I didn't know what to expect.
Little did I know that it would be one of the most fun events I've ever been to.
Deak and Quincy had an amazing camaraderie and I had no trouble getting great candid moments with them.
I was just beginning my street photography adventure when I did a film course in Atlanta with the awesome Matt Clanton. Quincy was one of the people in my 6 day class and by the end of it we had hit it off pretty well.
Even more awesome this time around. I was a bit more comfortable with street photos by the time Jes and I got back together for a shoot. I brought a prop this time.
The gorgeous Karen Marie.
We were students together at Millikin University and I was fascinated by her immediately.
Three years later and I have since managed every live and recorded event for CAPSOC.
I found a posting for a new AfroJam showcase in Harlem and went, by myself, just to see what it was about.
