I was honored to photograph, Virginia Johnson, the artistic director of Dance Theatre of Harlem. Virginia has served as a role model for young black dancers and has exemplified American classical dancing. Over her years of performing, Virginia had the opportunity to perform for U.S. presidents Carter and Reagan.

I always have a fun time photographing the very talented comic/actor, Jason Burke. Of course, Stella found a way to sneak in there. She does have a soft spot for tall men.

PDN Photo Annual 2015

Screen Shot 2015-05-06 at 2.10.17 PM

I’m thrilled and honored to be one of the winners of the PDN Photo Annual 2015 in the self-promotion category. The four winning images are from a series I created of ballet dancers from the Dance Theatre of Harlem. I chose the Dance Theatre of Harlem for this┬áseries after hearing a story on NPR. It was about the few numbers of mulitcultural ballet dancers in the US. I look forward to seeing┬ámore ballet dancers of different ethnicities continuing to succeed. As Virginia Johnson, the artistic director of DTH said so well, “Ballet is not for the faint of heart. It is about aiming for and maintaining the highest standards. Excellence is a human capacity unrestricted by ethnicity.” To see the winning images click here.

Chef Patrick O’Connell

PC101-copyWorking with chef Patrick O’Connell to create a unique chef’s portrait was a true honor. He was a pleasure to work with, making everyone crack up on set. I’m looking forward to tasting some of his culinary masterpieces at The Inn At Little Washington in the near future.
