Play On, Philly

My good friend Talya is working with an amazing after school music program called Play On, Philly. While I was visiting Philadelphia last month, famed vocalist Bobby McFerrin also happened to be doing a guest appearance at the program. It was a perfect opportunity for me to grab some photos for them and capture the excitement…

Have you met the Diana F+ and entered the giveaway? Now it’s time to see the camera in action. When you’ve become accustomed to technically perfect dSLRs, it’s both difficult and exciting to shoot film and not know what you’re going to get. So here they are– some frames and a glimpse behind the scenes…

Talya Lieberman, Vocalist | Lifestyle Portraits | Lincoln Center, New York

We’re beginning to make a habit of this. I fly to New York, Talya hops into town from Philadelphia, and we do a shoot. By now, Talya is a pro at modeling. She somehow makes this freezing cold winter day look like an effortless, fun, sexy shoot. There is a whole different set of photos…

Christopher Lewis, Harpsichordist | San Francisco Musicians Headshots

He is a charmer. Christopher is a modern harpsichordist on a mission to bring this Middle Ages instrument into the 21st Century. He’s a champion of modern compositions for the harpsichord. Ok, I have to say it. He wants to be the Justin Bieber of harpsichordists. I had a great time with Chris shooting at…

Talya Lieberman, Vocalist | Philadelphia Musicians’ Headshots

I was blown away the first time I heard her play. It was freshman year at Duke, just your typical chamber music concert– a little bit of Brahms, Schubert, Mendelssohn perhaps. But the Beethoven flowing out from her fingers was captivating, nuanced, effortless. Talya is nothing if not talented and passionate. She has an artist’s…

She has a bright, bold spirit and the vision and determination to make things happen. Christine is a teacher and a vocalist, and also a voice teacher.

Dan Hutchings, Vocalist | San Francisco Headshots Photographer

Dan Hutchings is a classical vocalist based in San Francisco now, but soon moving out of state. He’s reserved, straightforward, and classically good looking too. The cool thing about this session is that it’s the first one I did right here, at my new place in San Francisco. Looking forward to many more to come!

Susie Fong, Harpsichordist | San Francisco Headshots Photographer

Susie peered into the window like a child sneaking a peek at the Christmas presents long before it was time, and she gestured me over to show me. In one room, a harpsicord with light-colored wood ornately painted with floral designs. In another, a stark modernist piece with sleek curving lines and a bold red,…

Krystle Tugadi, Musician | Los Angeles Headshots Photographer

She’s got soul, she’s got style, and it’s no surprise that she’s on the rise. While a lot of musicians these days are going all-virtual with their webcam performances, Krystle Tugadi has taken it back to the stage. She performs live shows several times a week around her Los Angeles/Orange County home base. Don’t worry,…

David Duenas, Guitarist | Santa Clara Headshots Photographer

I first met David at the beginning of this year when I did group portraits of the San Francisco Guitar Quartet. This time, I met him down at the beautiful Santa Clara University campus for an individual headshot session. The Spanish style buildings, abundant greenery, and the beautiful Mission Church made for a wonderfully serene…
