STUDIO NEWS: RECENT VINTAGE PRINT SALE
This 11 x 14 inch vintage photograph entitled, “Dinner For Two, Philadelphia 1995 is from the book of Tableaux Vivants, published by Editions Stemmle, Zurich, 2002. The archival print was recently sold to a private collector in Philadelphia for $2500.00. It was the only print of its kind in inventory and from a very rare limited edition of prints. The picture is part of a series of Tableaux Vivants I produced between the years 1993 to 2000. This particular photo was staged at the Striped Bass in Philadelphia, once declared by Esquire Magazine as the number one restaurant in the United States for dining at the time. Owners, Joe Wolf and Neil Stein commissioned me to make the photograph for an ad that would later run in Philadelphia magazine to promote the famous restaurants “midnight breakfast”.

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.

Diary: Portrait of a Swinger
Sandra had a nice modern apartment in the town of St. Pauli, a neighborhood that contains the infamous Red Light District of Hamburg, Germany. I knew this neighborhood well, easily finding her place within walking distance from the Monopol Hotel, located on the Reeperbahn in the same neighborhood. She was located on the top floor of a 5 story building with roof access and lots of skylights. From her location you could simply walk onto her balcony and listen to the cat calls, as the hookers lined along the Herberstrase in plain sight of the St. Pauli police station. Yes. Prostitution is legal in Germany. Sandra’s apartment provided a comforting setting to light her portrait. I shot on a big red contemporary sofa just off of her nicely appointed bedroom. I used a combination of high ISO with cross processed film, available window light added most of the fill with my ever present ring flash. Sandra pulled clothes from her own wardrobe dressing herself up like when she and her husband invite another couple over for a night of play. She exuded a classic sex appeal with a mixture of Asian and German looks with perfectly sculpted high cheek bones and a perfectly balanced frame with big hair. She exuded a vibe as if she were ready to please.

DIARY: ROOFTOP WITH A VIEW OF BEAUTY
It was an unusually clear and cheerfully sunny day in Amsterdam when I called upon a local modeling agency that I was working with to cast models for an upcoming book project. The agency sent over a 21 year old Dutch beauty for the casting. After a brief talk with the new subject in my apartment, we proceeded up a crawl space via a narrow set of wooden stairs to the rooftop of the building that overlooked the Warmoesstraat, a bustling street in the Red Light district of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, loaded with tourists from all walks of life as they window shopped for prostitutes who were legally selling sex for a fee down on the famous street below. Fortunately, the roof of my apartment was on the top floor of a street that ran perpendicular to the Warmoesstraat. The model and I felt secluded from the hustle and bustle of the neighborhood teeming with sex seekers even though one could easily here the constant negotiations that were underway by the tourists who were soliciting the “window girls” down below.
Dutch women in general seem to be more comfortable with their beauty and sexuality as was the case with this lovely young native who innocently laid on a steel girder that was often used by tenet’s in our building to hoist large pieces of furniture up to and through the windows of the old apartment complex. The small winding staircases so common to Dutch apartment dwellings in this section of town made it nearly impossible to deliver large pieces of furniture into the comfort of one’s home without the use of a hoist and a large open window. On this day the girder served a much more noble purpose. The locals in the vicinity who lived in taller apartment buildings benefited by the castings that took place on my rooftop on days when the weather put everyone in the neighborhood at ease, and in the mood to enjoy the simplest pleasures of man and his irresistible nature to enjoy beauty.
