My photos

I have been taking photos of various subjects for a long time and pride myself with having a good eye for any subject matter. I am going to start posting some from time to time and welcome any comments.

This was taken in a night club in Tampa using a cell phone. I thought the color was right for the expression on my buddy. 

My friend Victoria was shot on my Canon EOS 5-D and in a park near my house about 20 minutes before the sun set. 

Shot on Clearwater beach, My friends Just married decided they would love some shots. For me the blue sky and lighting were just perfect, as are the expressions. It is important to get the subjects comfortable and playful before a shoot. 


This was shot at the Tmpa museum of art with me lying on the floor and shooting behind a rock garden on the floor. It reminded me of the scene in alien with the eggs. I think the contrast of the bright light and the solid blacks make the shot stand out.

  1. Love the Dar shot. Fits them both. The subtle tie grab makes the photo for me. Adds so much to the shot.

  2. Yeah, knowing the subject makes the shoot that much more fun. I really enjoyed shooting about 100 shots of them...about 12 are good, which for me is a good number. I am looking for perfection , sort of...

  3. Jimmy, you do have a decent eye. I have been shooting photos for only about a decade and it started with me buying a camera to get photo reference for a comic project that didn't happen. I really enjoy taking photos now. The fact is that you're a talented artist so it isn't surprising you can take good photos;)

  4. Cool photos! The lighting of first shot makes me think of a Rembrandt painting. My other fave of these is the last shot.... I thought of the alien nest, too.
