HANNAH & HEIDI

.

I first met Hannah through the gentlemen’s club scene in Philadelphia during the late 1990’s. She was a popular adult entertainer with an exotic look and a charming demure personality.  I was shooting material at the time for a company online called MET who catered to an audience that liked soft delicate romantic pictures of young women who were natural beauties. No cosmetic surgery allowed for any model submission to the publication . Hannah was a perfect casting for MET. The bonus surprise on the day of the shoot was her childhood friend, Heidi also wanted to be photographed with Hannah, but not totally nude.  It was a typical hot and humid day in Philly that August, so I suggested to Hannah; that she take a shower conveniently located on the grounds of the property that served as a backdrop for the series.

HANNAH

.

Hannah and I go back a long way.  The first time I photographed her was in 2003 when she was just 20 years old.  This picture was taken several years later in 2006 after she was almost killed in a horrible car accident on her way to work.  Hannah was one of the most beloved adult entertainers in the Philadelphia area during those days. Over time she recovered  but never fully returned to the adult stage. She agreed to sit for this portrait to commemorate her recovery during a most difficult time.

Diary: Cathy Jean

Cathy Jean

.

Looking through the archives recently I came upon this photograph of Cathy Jean, who’s musical achievements spans a wide range: rock, blues-rock, jazz, funk and gospel.  I’ve had the pleasure of photographing her twice, once at my studio in Philly, the second time at the Elkins Estate not far from my home in Montgomery County, Pa.  This topless photo was produced during our second shoot in one of the marble bathrooms of the historic 42-acre estate. In February, 2009 the Dominican Sisters sold the property to the Land Conservancy of Elkins Park.  

Cathy is from Baltimore, Maryland. It has been noted she was born into an abusive but musical family. She recorded her first musical album at the age of 9. Inspired early on by various women in rock, Ms. Jean was then introduced to the blues. It was this introduction as a teen that led to her love and respect of the genre.

Portrait of the Day

I met Maggie back in the 1990’s during a period when I was photographing a lot of young women in my hometown of Philadelphia.  Maggie is the daughter of my old friend; Neil Stein the visionary restaurenteur who transformed the Rittenhouse Square area during the early 1990’s with the birth of the Stripped Bass and later Rouge, boutique dining at its finest. Neil was a fan of my work and amongst the early collectors of vintage prints from the collection.

Diary: Isabella Reneaux – The First Sitting

DIARY: ISABELLA RENEAUX – THE FIRST SITTING

.

The very first sitting with Isabella Reneaux took place just off of Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia.  I had been searching for an appropriate location for the days until I discovered the most exquisite boutique hotel in the area.  The next time your in town I highly recommend Rittenhouse 1715.  The atmosphere in the hotel got us in a good mood, making it easier to make sexy pictures. Believe it or not, I am not only inspired by the model I work with, but also the environment I work in.  I could have shot her there for days.  It seemed like days anyway.   Isabella knew just how far she could push my imagination and which part of her beauty to emphasize as I clicked each frame.  She became even more at ease once all of her clothes were removed.
