I traveled to Quebec City this past weekend and stumbled upon the final showing of Cirque du Soleil’s Les Chemins Invisibles [The Invisible Paths]. To my astonishment and joy there was no one at the entrance checking bags or denying admission to folks with “professional” cameras. I have wanted to shoot a Cirque du Soleil show ever… Read more »

It’s not your quick 5 minute YouTube video; Peter spends about two hours sharing the insights that lead to his great headshots (and allow him to charge $1100 for a shoot!).

In addition to the Meetup shoot last Sunday, I also worked with Yesenia and Aviva from Model Mayhem on a few concepts. This was my first time working with a beauty dish, which is now my new favorite light modifier.
Last week I worked with a Meetup group on a shoot in South Boston. The two featured models are Felicia Sun and Rajiv Roy, both of whom are excellent models! Helping out with hair and makeup was Lorrie Pearson. Krista Young completed the team with wardrobe styling. We have assembled a great team and I look… Read more »
