Past midnight on a long, exhausted drive back from Central MA after a shoot for my LGBTQ+ tattoo photo essay, I stopped at the Fifties Diner in Chicopee.
Frankie Francois, a Boston-area film, commercial, and voiceover actress, did some voice acting for my thesis film "What Stays Inside" in exchange for some portraits. Drop her a line if you need someone for your project. She's super friendly and easy to work with!
Here are some portraits I shot with Matthew and Akil back in February. Check them out on Instagram (Matthew, Akil) to see some more of their awesome style. Matthew Matthew's a photographer too and you can see their work here.
I shot some grad portraits for Christina to send home to family. We were going for a sort of "look, I'm so smart I'm graduating" vibe, so we went down into the stacks of Tisch Library.
I have so few shots from this Tufts-Babson game because, get this, there were three other Daily photographers there, two of whom were there to get trained on sports photography. Basketball is hard to shoot because it's so dark in the gym!
I shot some portraits with actress and model Alyssia Johnson for her resume. We used stand lights, but the white background is just my apartment wall and the black background is the flag side of a five-sided reflector.
Arkadiy and I met on Craigslist -- he'd done some modeling in Russia and wanted to get some headshots and model in the US, and I wanted to practice three-point lighting, so we teamed up to take these pictures.
Over winter break, I spent a week at WBUR interviewing and shadowing different people at the station. Here are some photos behind the scenes at On Point with Ray Suarez.
