I was hired to photograph Julinda for a health care publication at her home in the Front Range here in Colorado. I always enjoy meeting and photographing real people (a much more authentic and engaging experience and portrait than a model portraying some character) and Julinda was a pleasure to meet and work with.
I couldn’t hope for better subjects to capture in moody black and white portraits than talented artists. Below are portraits of 3 of Opera Colorado’s Young Artists.
Pam and Sindy run The Old Dog House, a sanctuary for older dogs who would otherwise be homeless and unlikely to be adopted. This is truly a fantastic place for an older canine to live out his or her last years. They live off the grid in a cozy home in Florissant, CO and they let me spend the morning photographing them at play. (well, the dogs were playing, Pam and Sindy seem to have an endless list of chores and a lot of dog poop to scoop)
