B.) DANCING WITH LIGHT
Innovative organic lighting technologies from a company I co-founded (large format flexible flat panels, light tapes, light wires, injected surface lights, embedded vinyl lights) are all utilized to create an amazing canvas of luminescence. You simply won't believe these photos when I start uploading them!!
** My work has been featured internationally in museums, websites, magazines, book covers and United Nations publications. **
** Please note that all these projects are for charity to help raise awareness and involvement in the fight against violence, exploitation, abuse, trafficking and enslavement of women and children worldwide. As such, all shoots are TFP. My time and the time from celebrities and models is donated to the cause!**
Please tag me and/or message me with the specific project(s) you are interested in participating in.
I also do mixed media (acrylic and photography) projects and specialty light sculptures.
Until They Are All Free!
