Half way thru our Birthday Party with a dear friend I got an idea. So, after we’d opened the champagne and we’d had a few glasses, and before our friend had opened her birthday present from us…. we shot this!

Gawd, I love Birthdays!!! :D

I’ve been doing this for over 15 years.
I was inspired to do this at the age of 22 by Helmut Newton.
I have a love affair with the kind of photography that I do that is beyond my understanding.
I do beautiful fine art coffee table books.
I’m married to my stylist and the love of my life, Raven.
Oh! And I throw parties for a living.
Large parties.

    You do appear to lead somewhat of a blessed life. Not only is your photography visually stunning, your models (and by the looks of it your friends) are equally beautiful. Brilliant idea and impeccable production of it.

  • It came together in a matter of minutes. I’d been happy if it took All Day!! :D)

    (And Chris…. Thank You.)
