I have been trying to get this shot for quite some time, I don’t just drop by and snap…I have a shot in my mind’s eye and try to conquer it. I have been waking up at 5 am and drove to the spot 4 times, but as always, you cannot plan what nature will do…Besides, humans are always in the way to screw things up too. I met the infamous Murphy there a couple of times. That son of a gun is no good and always in the way! I ended up getting what I wanted I have to say it LOUD:).
I was so happy when I finally got these two shots of this beautiful, yet scary alley of Oak trees !

Five large prints of mine were commissioned by the New Orleans Hyatt Regency Hotel for display in the exibit hall by the lower ballroom, towards the back of the hotel. If you happen to visit New Orleans and/or stay at the newly remodeled (recently re-opened after almost 6 years after Katrina) Hyatt Regency, which is not too far from the Mercedes Benz Superdome my photographs are displayed on either side of the lower ballroom entrance. To get there you will need to go to the third floor of the hotel, walk towards the back, passing the first restaurant to the right and the second to the left ,then take the stairs down to the lower ballroom, the prints are on either side of the entrance to the ballroom. Please have a look and feel free to comment in here anytime to let me know what you think. Your feedback will be very welcome.

Just a few shots from my latest engagement photo shoot with Amy and Christian from Dallas TX. The shoot was done early in the morning in the French Quarter of New Orleans; and when I say early, I mean EARLY, (just after sunrise), when the light is great and the temperature is more manageable. The streets and alleys in the French Quarter are more romantic when they are deserted. A beautiful day with a beautiful couple form some great pictures which they will hopefully enjoy forever. As we say in Italy: Auguri e figli maschi, Amy and Christian!
Here below is another enagement photo session done in New Orleans French Quarter with Natalie and Conar from Tennessee
New Orleans is one of the most romantic, colorful and photogenic cities in the US, full of opportunities for unique engagement photo shoots. While the French Quarter was still crowded with lots of people still hanging out from Mardi Gras’, we managed to get some great images thanks to the location scouting I did a few days before the photo shoot. As you can see from the images below my main focus (pun intended) is to shoot with a modern and more graphic feel to it than a photojournalistic style. Framing the photos balancing spaces and objects in relation with the couple and color palettes of the French Quarter was my approach which I think worked quite well. Of course I did take some more everyday type photos since the French Quarter was really too crowded to take only those clutter free graphic type images, it would have taken a week with all the traffic and tourists!. What a lovely and fun couple to work with…These below are just some of the shots for you to see. Thank you Amy and Christian + Natalie and Conar for the trust and the hard work!
Oh wow it was so worth it, yet again I got some killer shots in the French Quarter during this last winter storm brushing up southeast Louisiana! Although it didn’t bring any of the white powdery stuff that we get to see down here so rarely, it brought once again the magic lights and moods of desolated streets and alleys… all of these photos below are available as fine art prints at www.nolaPIC.com Click any image below to get to the fine art print, where you can view them larger and/or purchase them.

If you are thinking of pursuing an acting career, please do keep in mind that movie productions and talent agencies aren’t only searching for good looking people; lots of extras and actors are marketable because of their unique characters and features. These are a few of the qualities that makes them interesting and therefore successful in getting noticed. Danny Devito is one great example…Don’t you love him? He is one of my favorite actors and despite being 5′ tall, overweight (and balding), he has managed to become one of Hollywood’s most versatile actors! With all the new motion pictures coming to New Orleans, the needs for actors and extras it’s only gonna get greater, so be yourself and do market yourself for who you really are, nobody better than you knows what your strenghts are!
