A Colorado Tribute to Classic Hollywood
We truly are experiencing an Indie film renaissance here in Colorado, from Denver to Colorado Springs and beyond. I wanted to do a photo project that would celebrate the growing Colorado Independent Film Community. So what better way to do this than to work with all of the talented Colorado –based actors who are appearing in all of these locally produced short and feature films. They represent our own version of Hollywood along the Front Range.
What is Visual Style?
In the visual arts, style is a "...distinctive manner which permits the grouping of works into related categories” or "...any distinctive, and therefore recognizable, way in which an act is performed or an artifact made or ought to be performed and made." It refers to the visual appearance of a work of art that relates it to other works by the same artist or one from the same period, training, location, and "school":
"The notion of style has long been the art historian's principal mode of classifying works of art. By style, he selects and shapes the history of art".
-From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I have had many artistic influences over the years that have helped me
define my visual style. I am grateful to all of them.

Teacher… Mentor… Friend.
I am where I want to be… thanks to you.
