The Wolf & The Wolverine

The Wolf & The Wolverine

Jonathan Edward Balfour used to be a cat person. Growing up, the songwriter spent a lot of time at cat shows, primping and fluffing felines with names like Oro Ojos Cruz Bernal of Katsamust. These days, Jonathan is making a name for himself at different kinds of shows as the front man for the indie […]

Azteca

This Aztec inspired garment was created by Denver designer, Armando Guerra. The make-up was done by Denver make-up artist, Becky Laschanzky www.missbeckymakeupartist.com Shooting fashion is always great because I get to collaborate with other talented artists. The final images are always a surprise and I love that!

Lifeless Beauty

Lifeless Beauty

I’ve always liked the haunting feel of this piece. I love the contrast of color and mood that’s portrayed in this almost “lifeless” pose. The dress and styling was done by artist, Armando Guerra back when we first met in 1999.


Scholarly Creative

Scholarly Creative

This portrait of Denver fashion designer, Armando Guerra says so much about him. We shot his in his studio on his mirror wall. His space is as colorful and creative as his design. Only Mondo can make so many colors, textures and patterns work in one look. I love this professorial portrait.


Birthday of a Muse

Birthday of a Muse

Today is the birthday of  my friend Felix. I met Felix for coffee today and we talked about photography, our history as friends and our futures. For years, Felix was my main model. Any time I wanted to shoot photos, he was there, ready and willing.  He was open to new ideas and often had […]


Beauty and the Butch

Beauty and the Butch

No rebel would be complete without a motorcycle and a mustache.  Denver fashion designer Mondo Guerra lends a youthful grace to the hyper-masculine textures and symbols of this Tom-of-Finland-inspired image.

Tony

I shot this photo of Tony sometime last week. I used one large soft box to the left of him one smaller soft box to his right and a fill light behind me. I really like the expression on his face in this shot.


Spontaneous

Spontaneous

Here’s another shot of Julian from our shoot in 2007. The shirt was made just prior to the shoot by designer Armando Guerra with a shirt straight out of my closet and into the screen printing studio. One of the great things about living at The Other Side Arts was the ability to create spontaneously! […]


Enlightened

Enlightened

This back lit image was used originally for a lgbt art show at The Other Side Arts. For many years, I tried to give lgbt artists in the Denver area a venue to show their work. The goal was to engage the lgbt community in dialogue through art.


Social Construct

Social Construct

Gender is a subject that many people look at in terms of black and white. I have always questioned our societal views of what it means to male or female, masculine or feminine. Much of my work deals with the blurred lines between these ideas. I truly believe that gender is a social construction created […]


Masculine Deconstruction

Masculine Deconstruction

Here is another example of deconstructing masculinity. Finding the blurred line between masculine and feminine. I love the cool colors and extreme angle of this piece. The model is Damon and styled by Armando Guerra.


Saul

Saul

I’ve always liked this shoot with my friend Saul. He was very comfortable in front of the camera. I miss those old doors to my studio at The Other Side Arts. I often got lost in the layers of paint. As a matter of fact you may see that texture in a macro shot in […]


Lonnie

Lonnie

This is one of my early fashion pieces. I worked with designer, Armando Guerra on creating this haunting look of our friend and model, Lonnie. I’ve always love the severeness of this piece. The stark black and white of the garment as well as the lighting and makeup. There’s a certain level of desperation in […]


Mood

Mood

Today, I got a chance to work with musician, Paula Verdicchio Ailshie in the studio. We had a nice time working up some dramatic silhouette shots.


Julian

Julian

Julian is one of the best models I’ve ever worked with. He’s very professional and willing to try anything. We had him on his back in mud and he didn’t blink an eye. I love the vintage feel of this photo. The styling was done by local designer, Armando Guerra. If you’d like to schedule […]
