Mark your Calendars, on August 20th from 5-7pm, Eric Edward Schell & I invite you to come celebrate the official launch of P.R.I.D.E. Portraits.
Photographs Representing Individuals Deserving Equality is a bold initiative to photograph 10,000 people around the U.S.
The photoshoot, OPEN TO EVERYONE, will be at The West Studios, a beautiful new space located in The Heights.
Enjoy a glass of wine and be the one of the first to view and be photographed by Eric in front of a one of a kind painted backdrop, inspired by the LGBTQ+ community and its allies.
The canvas will be the official backdrop for all P.R.I.D.E. Portraits.
Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending one of my collector's milestone birthdays. A Few months ago he commissioned a piece, a self portrait. After we discussed the details, such as size, color palette I shot several photos of him with my canon. He selected his favorited and from there I took that image and created his portrait.
His celebration consisted of a happy hour/brunch at the Manor, which I had never been to. Great venue for a party of this size. When all the guests had arrived he informed me that I would present the piece to the room and then he would unwrap it in front of everyone (gasp.) I hadn't prepared a speech but I spoke from the heart and it went great. He unwrapped it and was utterly surprised and delighted.
I will be one of the featured artists this year. Come check out all the great art the Houston scene has to offer!
