So when professional dancer/model/singer Carlus Reed came to town for a photo shoot I had to at least try the underwater dance gig. I have had both Tori Rymer and Carlus in the water before but never two at one time. Lets just say I am very pleased at the results form our aquatic encounter..

When I say infant photo shoot in the water most people blow me off. When they realize I’m serious they think I’m CRAZY. When they see the photos they are amazed. Babies do very well in the water after the initial shock of being put in the pool. They hold there breath naturally and even make swimming strokes. Of course they act like little flotation devices because of there body composition. They shoot straight to the top of the water.
High fashion make up for a Liquid Art session with the beautiful Sarah Blakley. One of the cool things about Liquid Art is the ability to get creative with the make up and hair. There are no set rules that the fluids will follow so why not get creative with the make up and hair style. I have a great team of that supports my passion. Make up concept is by Ryan Deering. Hair concept by the one and only Maynette. Of course I did pick out the paint color and built the set.
One of the Interesting things about liquid art is the results are unpredictable. Several of my clients have shown me work I have done in the past or other photographers images asking If I can re do them. Even though I would love to reproduce some of them, I simple have not been able to accomplish that task. Of the hundreds of images I have done, no two ever look alike or have been reproduced. It’s a one of a kind image. Word to the wise put a “not responsible” for died skin or hair in the contract. Everyone will end up pink, green, orange, yellow, gold etc…… No Cows were hurt during the spattering of Kaylea.
A lot more country talent comes through West Texas than any other genera of music. Although I don’t personally follow the music, I have grown to appreciate the style and the fans. The patrons that attend these big venues at United Spirit Arena in Lubbock, Texas are some of the friendliest and considerate toward the camera people. This is one of the photos of Luke Bryan in concert on the 30th of Jan.
