New Portraits of an Opera Singer

Congratulations to Bass baritone Andrew Hiers, recently awarded the annual Norblom Award by Opera Colorado. Because of his selection for the award we did a portrait session.  Andrew is a great human, and a pleasure to photograph. I hope you get the opportunity to hear him sing some day.

Colorado Mountain Portrait

I had the wonderful opportunity to meet and photograph actress Katie Barberi this fall here in Colorado.  She was willing to head to a location I had scouted earlier in the day and even traipse through the woods a bit to stand in what looked like an odd choice for a portrait.  However, I’m glad she trusted me and was willing, because that location and her cooperation made the best photographs of the afternoon.

Environmental Portrait session with Liz

I had the wonderful opportunity to meet in person and spend the afternoon with Liz in her studio in Boulder the other day.  It was a true pleasure watching her work, chatting with her and (of course) photographing her as she created.

New Photography @ The Denver Puppet Theater

I was finally able to photograph Annie at The Denver Puppet Theater the other day.  She is always amazingly busy, I found.  That makes sense because Annie is not only a wonderful puppeteer putting on a variety of fantastic shows. She also creates all of the puppets, is a kind human being and provides a wonderful service to all of the children who attend.  I believe that her method of helping people think creatively and open their mind is treasure to all those who attend.

Black and White executive portraits in Denver

3 black and white portraits from an executive portrait shoot here in Denver recently.  We wanted the portraits to convey his personality, style and commanding presence while still being approachable.
