Time to feed the artist in me. Wanna help????
Every now and then, I find that something deep down in my soul begs to be fed. I'm talking hungry! FAMISHED! ABOUT TO CHEW OFF MY OWN ARM AND DIP IT IN BBQ SAUCE!!!!! Well... you get the ideal. :)
Took me a little bit to figure out what it was that was craving attention and it turns out that hidden behind my little engineering brain, I have a teeny-tiny artist that usually hides in a corner and is fed scraps, when scraps exist. Usually it's just a used box of crayons, some dried up play-doh, and a disposable camera with 3 shots left. Anyway.... that little artist has decided he's tired of taking the left-overs and wants to be let out.... like NOW! So we've been talking, having coffee, going on walks, etc... and after getting through some arguments, have decided that we really like creating portraits that may evoke more emotional responses... portraits like this:
Now I know that's not ultimately what my little artist REALLY wants to create, but it's a compromise. What he really wants to create, is more like these:
Where do you all come in?
Well.... this is a private page for my friends (SO DON'T SHARE IT!!!) and I'm looking to play more in this studio/b&w portraiture space and see what I can do with it. Maybe make it MINE and have this style become what JKE Photography is known for! What I want to know is, if anyone wants to help me see what I can create in this space and be a model for me. I'm looking for anything. Women, men, couples, families, children, and maybe even pets. Until I feel really comfortable in consistently creating images that move people and invoke some emotional response, I'm offering free sessions (TO MY FRIENDS ONLY) to come to my studio and be test subjects. From these sessions, if you like anything that's created, I'll let you choose 3-5 digital portraits that I'll polish and send you (details on that are here).
If you are interested, shoot me over a Facebook message, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll talk.
