Our Portrait Process

What is the Portrait Process? A lot of things about photography have changed since I was a kid. I remember heading to the mall photo studio and all of the stiff, awkwardposing, the weird backgrounds, and the packages of photos that had like 400 wallet-sized images.

When you come to Stonetree Creative, my goal is to be the only photographer […]

Portrait Session with Eunice

A Gift From One Sister to Another I’ve worked with my friend Hana on portrait sessions on a number of occasions, photographing her for several different magazines. Every time I see her she tells me, “You HAVE to meet my sister, Eunice! She wants to be a model.

This was at the Portrait Masters 2018 convention in Arizona, and his name was Parker J Pfister. My art would be forever changed. So how the Hell do I go from […]

Prepping for Portrait Masters Conference 2018

Here it is a week before I fly across the country and attend my first multi-day photography conference, the Portrait Masters. While I regularly attend workshops provided by the Maine Professional Photographers Association (MPPA), I always think it’s wise to invest in yourself at least once a year and really get outside of your comfort zone. For me, that is finding new ways to create portraiture. Sue Bryce is one of the world’s foremost figureheads in the contemporary portraiture space. […]
