When I was asked by Richard Cordova, from the Test Positive Aware Network, to help him with a film to promote the Ride for AIDS Chicago, I couldn’t help but to say yes. We met some amazing people along the way and here are some of their stories.
The weekend was full of excitement as we shot two projects to help two Chicago area AIDS Charities raise money through athletic events.
My sports lifestyle ads for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, designed by the talented graphic designer Dan Paterno can now be found all over Chicago, including this ‘L’ station!
Australian master hair stylist Vic Picolotto of Tracey Hughes Education, asked me to work with him to create these colorful portraits. Hair, make-up, styling and the background all came together to create these themed images.
Before the repatriation of my friend Vic Picolotto to his native Australia, to work for hairdressing giant Tracey Hughes Education, we decided to get in a few headshot shoots while we still could!
I decided to use a variety of hard light sources to sculpt the light for these portraits. However most of the hair is light from above and behind with a softbox.
