Aerial class with Madeline hoak

I was finally able
to observe and photograph
Madeline Hoak's Aerial class.
An amazing thing to behold, involving
strength, stamina, and grace. Her students
were focused, calm, and attentive to her
directions dispite my being there.
All of them show a burning desire
to get the hang of it, and push it as far 
as they can. The health benefits, increased
agility, concentration, reflex, and 
not to mention this is so cool.
The wonderful thing about this
is how much I wanted to put down the cameras
and join in. You could feel the concentrated
energy of the class as you moved through the room.
I was in such a good mood after the class.
I really love the twists, turns, and angles
of the bodys  you can get when your photographing them.
Da Vinci would have loved this.
Movement of the human body and the elements of
the form can be broken down into its various parts
by the eye, then used to create so many types of Art.
Thinking in terms of abstract painting, the 
variations seem utterly endless and sublime.
I can't wait for the next observation period.
If you would like to know more, or give it go,
please contact the wonderful Miss Hoak @

The February Show @ Ogilvy&Mather

The February show
was a stunning exhibit, so much to think about.
Although I was pleased with this roll, I still
feel I could have done more, given the subject matter.
The Images focused more on the people
at the event, but I did show some of 
the artwork by it's self and with people
around them and observing.
This I did because I did not want to give 
to much away, just enough to get people
interested in traveling into the city 
to see it in person.

The Bulgarian Bar:"Trip like I do"

As with some of the
other shoots I've done, I wanted to
show images the eye can't see in various stages
Extreme movement with-in a festive 
enviroment, the suroundings still,
while the inhabits begin to fuse with the color
stream in an exciting, confusing look.
