Tall, Dark & Sexy Photo Shoot

Happy November to you and yours...gee time flies! I went back to school in September in order to finish up my business degree and have heavily neglected my blogging duties. Please forgive me ;o)

A few months ago I had the wonderful opportunity to work on the set of Grassroots a movie directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal (Maggie & Jake's dad!).  The film features Jason Biggs, Joel David Moore as well as Tom Arnold. I wasn't able to take any photographs on set but I can say that it was one of the best experiences that I've had to date and I learned a lot.

To celebrate the month of October I had the privilege of working on a very different photo shoot with Shawn Ripley. The Evergreen Cemetery in Everett, WA. was the backdrop for these "tall, dark & mysterious" shots.  If you're a trivia buff then you may be interested to know that  in 1995 Evergreen Cemetery was the location for a scene in the movie "Assasins" which starred Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas! Cool, huh?

Photographer Bio: Shawn Ripley is a diverse photographer who is able to create beautiful and unique shots in a variety of styles. He strives to capture the emotion of the subject, the moment and the surroundings. Whether working on model portfolio development or shooting weddings or portraits, Shawn is known for his professionalism and respect for his clients. Creativity, ingenuity and passion for photography are qualities that define him and his work.

Shawn got his first camera when he was fifteen. He began seriously pursing photography in 2005. His experience includes wildlife and nature photography, wedding photography, portrait photography, senior portraits, model portfolio development and rodeo photography. His passion for art carries beyond just using a camera; he enjoys watercolor painting and graphite drawing as well.

"A woman must be two things: classy and fabulous"
- Coco Chanel

Actors become actors because they loved entertaining their family by putting on the lampshade and dancing around as a kid, ... That's not my personality. For me, the fun part of making movies is seeing it as a director sees it. I like the architecture of movies. I like knowing what's coming and working to set that up.”
- Jodie Foster quotes (American Actress, b.1962)
