Getting my Depeche Mode Fix

The All-American Opera Singer
Lindsay Terrell, All-American Opera Singer & Girl Next Door
I was hired to update Lindsay’s headshots last week as the audition season is coming up. Based on a previous photo shoot I had completed with her cousins, Lindsay felt she could trust me. What an honor. The time we spent in the park was relaxed, filled with laughter, and her beautiful smile. (And occasionally that seductive little smirk would show up.)
Based on the results, I think we nailed it. Good luck this season, Lindsay, and thank you for trusting me with your image.
If you are looking for your own headshots or portraits, please Contact Me.
EVENT: The Monster’s Ball 2015
I was asked by Regina Stocco of The Social Connection to capture the night’s festivities at the Fillmore Detroit, located at 2115 Woodward Avenue, on October 30th for Detroit’s most exclusive Halloween party, The Monster’s Ball! This event featured Metro Detroit’s finest DJs, live performers, and stage entertainers. When Regina stated in her email to me “…no one catches the soul of (an) event the way you do…”, I couldn’t pass up this opportunity. Plus, Halloween is my all-time favorite time of the year. So it was a win-win all around!
Thank you Regina for your trust in me. My door is always open to you.

FOOD & DRINK: Sherwood Brewing
Ever want to find that perfect place to grab a drink and unwind after another day of pushing buttons and making other people more money than you? Well, make you way over to Sherwood Brewing Company in Shelby Township, Michigan. They serve only the finest hand-crafted beer, wine, and sodas, all made on-site in their brewing facility, clearly visible through the looking glass. (Yes, growlers a-plenty to take home too!)
If you think the ego is thick over there, and that you need to know what the hell you’re talking about when it comes to trying new beers or wines, trust me when I say that the friendly staff is more than welcoming and willing to answer any and all questions you might have. If you’re able to catch either of the owners, Ray or Lisa Sherwood, or Corey, the Brewer and Manager, they will always give you their time and make you feel at home. It literally feels like you are at a Friends house just having some drinks and laughs.
Not to be considered just a brewery, Lisa and Corey hold nothing back when it comes to their rock-solid menu. It’s not pompous or pretentious, but rather more along the lines of artistic comfort food. There is something for everyone. My god, they even make their own homemade gelato with their beer and wine…and it’s xxxx-ing fantastic!
PROJECT: Lisa, Corey and I collaborated on a photoshoot to try and cover a portion of some NEW menu items as well as some NEW brewery images for future marketing needs. Click on the Gallery above to see a selection from the photoshoot. If they inspire you to check out Sherwood Brewing Company in person, then I will consider my efforts, and Sherwood’s, a success. And tell them I sent you.
Please contact me if you are looking for new imagery of your menu items, interiors, or just ambiance. I would love to work with you to share your passions.
Satori Circus: Coming to a T-shirt near you…
Coming soon to a black t-shirt near you: Satori Circus Triptych Heads!
Based on the interest level, I plan on releasing a limited run of these halftone Satori Circus head T-shirts based on my original photograph from 2010. You too can own one, or two, or all three of the images.
Whaddya think? Anyone wanna walk around town with a clown on their chest?
Leave your comments below so I can decide.
So this is happening today…
Join Klemm Gallery in welcoming Kelly Burke (’07) and Brett J. Lawrence (’95), our featured artists in the 2015 Alumni Exhibition from 6-8pm.
Burke’s abstract paintings “…focus on process and physicality of paint. The repetitious layering of, taking away, and re-application of color underneath automatic scrawling, scratching and mark-making express [her] inner psyche…”
Lawrence’s photographs document a collaborative project with performance artist Satori Circus, in which the two explore “…things that [they] each hold dear…photography, performance art and the history of an oftentimes struggling city with its beautiful historic theaters.”
This Friday, Studio Angelico will play host to the Homecoming Weekend Welcome Reception, and Klemm Gallery will be open to the public. Satori Circus, the subject of Lawrence’s photos, will perform in the gallery throughout the reception, and the artists will give a brief gallery talk at 7pm.
