This gorgeous woman stopped by our annual Advanced Style workshops, at The Museum of Arts and Design, a few weekends ago. Every summer Debra Rapoport leads a series of salons where she guides museum guests in making beautiful accessories and treasured amulets out of recycled materials. Don’t miss out on our next Summer Salon taking place at Mad Museum on August 24th. For more information CLICK HERE .
A well known photographer once told me that if I ever wanted to show my work in a gallery, I would have to stop photographing people smiling. I never ask my subjects to smile, but have to admit that I love when they do. The people I photograph everyday bring me so much joy. I guess my photos won’t be shown in a gallery anytime soon ;)…
I am always drawn to people who wear hats. Maybe it’s because my grandfather used to lend me his old Stetson’s and fishing hats, or maybe it’s just because they can just be so magical. I think my dear friend Mimi Weddell put it best when she said ,” The only romantic thing left in life is a hat.” Here are some of the most wild and wonderful hats I have photographed over the last few years.
As promised here are some more shots from my shoot with Christina Viera. Christina always embellishes her outfits with the most unexpected accessories. Watch some of her tips, including how to turn an old pair of shorts into a jacket, in the video above.
