I'm so excited to have my photos of male dancers on display in the May 2017 show at the Art Saves Lives gallery in SF. If you are local, the show's opening will be the evening of Friday May 12. Yay!
I had a great time leading my latest Workshop on Photography of the Male Nude. Our new location in the Castro is super convenient. Our models Daniel, Angel, Kizza, and Caesar were amazing. Yay!
Before I started photography I did drawing and painting with San Francisco artist Felix d'Eon. I took a weekly figure drawing class with Felix in his studio. I started photography as I often couldn't finish my drawings while the live model was posing. Soon I was taking photos for Felix to use in his own art, and collaborating on projects together. Here is one of Felix' drawings. I remember it well, as I posed the Model (Rob) to re-enact the moment that I knew I was gay. That moment was in 6th grade and I was taking swimming lessons at the high school. The lessons were taught by the varsity swim team. I remember one of our coaches walking out of the showers with a towel around his neck. I had never seen anything so beautiful before, and knew at that moment what it was to be gay. Yay!
Congratulations to Bebe Sweetbriar for her well deserved Nitey Award last night for Most Notable Drag Queen. Yay!
I am very excited to be teaching a workshop on Photography for the Queer Resistance at Muse:Revolution weekend at Groundswell. All participants will compose, model, and photograph images that we will use to create images for posters/artwork for our Resistance. Yay!
