Tea Room at Caddo Lake

Right across from the Johnson’s Ranch is the Tea Room. This dilapidated shack that looks like something straight out of a gruesome horror film used to serve as a speakeasy during Prohibition. Appearances of the Tea Room include the opening credits scene of the television show “True Blood, in the feature film “Gator Bait” and in a number of Disney films and productions. I have mostly seen straight on photos of the place, so naturally I wanted to get a different and unique angle close in and showing the side! This print is also available in black and white.

Swamps are naturally beautiful, when the fog is so thick and the fall colors are just “ripe” it is and amazing show to witness in person. Breathtaking and humbling comes to mind. Click on each photo to open the gallery where you can purchase prints.

Headshots New Orleans© 2019 Alfonso Bresciani

After having shot headshots for the past years with mostly available light ( daylight) I have decided to start using some of my professional lighting system that I have been using to shoot actors in the film industry. The images are more cinematic and will make you look even better! You’ll be the judge! Head on over to my cinema headshots page  to see all the details! The film industry has kept me very busy for the past year and it looks like it will be even better this coming year, but I will be able to shoot some cinema headshots in between jobs.

Photo of Mardi Gras Day in the French Quarter of New Orleans
To take this image on Mardi Gras day I had to sit in a very unique spot to get this particular angle that I was after. Let’s just say that sidewalks are pretty “sticky” any day, on Mardi Gras Day that would be an understatement…but hey i got what I wanted!

As promised in  my previous post, here are some of my “newest” photos finally available for purchase at www.nolaPIC.com as fine art prints or canvas gallery wraps. They are a a selection of my best images taken from 2015 to 2016 in New Orleans and surrounding areas. Please click on each individual image to be taken on my other site to order.

this black and white photo is not too shabby either, actually I love it, and I think I may even like it better than the color one.

What has been going on photography wise?!?

I have been pretty busy the past year shooting unit stills on movies, so I have been focusing (pun intended) on getting more work in the movie industry which I really love doing! My fine art photography and headshots activity have therefore greatly decreased, but I am in the process of copyrighting a lot of killer photos that have been sitting on my backup drives instead of being appreciated (or purchased!) online. Hang on for a little bit longer because by the end of 2016/early 2017 I should have all the work done and have my latest work online at nolaPIC.com In the meantime here’re a couple of headshots fresh off my cameras, which i still enjoy doing very much when I have the time.

New Orleans Grand Opening - Panavision & Light Iron
Photos: Alfonso Bresciani – Click image above to see the complete Panavision / Light Iron Grand Opening gallery on Flickr.

I had a lot fun shooting at the grand opening of the expanded Panavision New Orleans location. Yeah I know you aren’t supposed to have fun while you work, but that happens whenever you do something you love for/with the great people! Needless to say they got me Panavised! Thank you very much! The new 30,500-square-foot space also houses Light Iron’s first brick-and-mortar facility in Louisiana. The state-of-the-art facility represents the first location occupied by the two companies since Panavision acquired Light Iron, a leader in digital workflow solutions, earlier this year. If you are in the film industry I strongly suggest you to visit them, it is a great facility, great people and location, from pre-pro to post!
