MY CEMETERY PROJECT   I've begun a personal project of shooting in cemeteries, I am drawn to the quiet beauty of the architecture, statuary and old mausoleums.  They are peaceful places that evoke sadness, melancholy  and a need to understand our past. I want to make soft images that I hope will  be emotionally revealing and poetic. Searching for models who can express  tragedy, sadness, and heartbreak. I hope each image will reflect the model's own interpretation of the concept. Shooting several days a month around my commercial jobs throughout the country. I will pay a reasonable fee. If you'd like to participate, send me a message and let me know your fee for 4 hours..  IMPORTANT: IF WE'VE DISCUSSED A SHOOT AND YOU DON'T RETURN MY CALL, I WILL AUTOMATICALLY MOVE ON TO ANOTHER PERSON. PLEASE DON'T WASTE MY TIME AND I WON'T WASTE YOURS.

My commercial work is all ballet related. I am 69 and have been a professional photographer most of my adult life. I shoot print, portrait and editorial. Well known internationally, most of my work has been in performance arts and conceptual portraits. I am the staff photographer for American Ballet Theatre as well as do independent work for such diverse companies as the Radio City Rockettes, Bolshoi Ballet and Mariinsky Theatre among others. I am available for commercial work and stage performances. Typically booked well in advanced but have open days between jobs. http://geneschiavone.com

My images regularly appear in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, LA Times and numerous dance and lifestyle related magazines both here and abroad. If you google "Gene Schiavone Photos" hundreds of my published shots will come up.  I live in Connecticut but most of my work is in New York City. I frequently travel to the West Coast, through New England, London, Prague, Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia. Will be in Naples, Florida for Feb, Mar, and April.

I'm relaxed, easy going and patient, I'll bring out your best look.

Photographers Statement:
"We all have creativity within our souls. It may lay dormant and invisible to our consciousness but there is an awareness of its existence. It may require a lifetime of work to expose it to the light of day but when it eventually surfaces it becomes an unstoppable force that needs to be harnessed and directed. Our task in life is to use this gift not only to satisfy our current need for personal fulfillment but leave behind some small evidence of our own existence."
