Ghost World - Seattle Fine Art Photographer

“The more unknowable the mystery, the more beautiful it is.”

David Lynch

I am so happy this shoot came together the way it did. We had originally envisioned one ghost sister in white and one in black, and we loved this look so much we saved that other idea for another shoot (stay tuned) The girls did their own make up which was AMAZING. We used these wigs they bought for this shoot - and a couple of dresses and dead things from my closet- and then we stepped out onto the ghost world.

Enjoy…..

Learning and growing from your old work- Seattle Fine Art Photographer

There is so much to be learned from your old work.

My artwork is like a diary for me. Looking back shows me how far I’ve come and where I want to go. Sometimes it can be totally embarrassing, and that’s ok!

Looking back on my old work helped me learn WHY I do this. I didn’t know 7 years ago. People would ask why I did what I did and I would struggle with the REAL answer although it was inside of me.

Here is some photographs from about 5 or 6 years ago, I will dig deeper for another post!

The Queen Astray. Rattlesnake Ledge Washington

Is she lost or did she run away? What is she running from? Is she searching freedom from the confines of her world?

I love working with Alexandra. Shes energetic, fun, she brings so much energy to the room. I actually considered her somewhat of a friend right after our first shoot.

For this one, we climbed above Rattlesnake Lake to Rattlesnake Ledge and shot for maybe 30 minutes. IT WAS FREEZING! The drive is just 45 minutes from Seattle, and the hike is an hour up. The hike, although only an hour, is relatively painful. For real it sounds easy but it is a punisher- I love it!

We imagined she had escaped from the confines of marriage and a place that would not let her be free and grow as a woman.

L.A actress meets Seattle Photographer for a conceptual shoot at Rattlesnake Lake, Washington

Sheila Houlahan has been seen on stage and screen around the world. Her most notable credits include performing the music of A. R. Rahman with the Seattle Symphony as the headliner female vocal soloist for the Celebrate Asia!  Pretty amazing right? Well I get to work with her from time to time when she is visiting from L.A. to Seattle.

Here is what we did last time…..

This is the story of the Wandering Pagan.
