"Rubi's on TV!"

A couple images from my shoot with Rubi. She happily modeled for my "Television series" portraits I'm working on and I'm thrilled with the results.

Here's a favorite from a CD artwork shoot with Impetu. This will most likely be the CD cover image. Check them out here > IMPETU

"The Most Interesting Show in the World" gets more interesting.

The Dos Equis "The Most Interesting Show In The World" variety show at The Venue of Scottsdale was more interesting than last year and it's not often I have a good time that ends with me being covered in shredded lettuce.

These DJs each have their own style

Last night I photographed DJ Slippe and DJ Breez at MYST in Scottsdale. Here's a shot of each of them from the same spot with a 14-24mm 2.8 lens. Slightly different angles but

obviously the light is the primary factor in the totally different personalities of these working DJ portraits. Playing with and catching light at venues is all part of the fun. And hearing these guys spin is nice too. You can check out DJ SLIPPE and DJ BREEZ with these links.

The road is calling

I miss traveling. And I'm starting to complain about it on this blog. I should go on the road if the road is calling. Not for too long. Just a short trip under a week because I'll really miss my kids.
Here are a few samples of my fine art travel photography. These images are from New York, Alaska, Oregon, New Orleans and San Francisco. Favorite places to me and all are available as prints here Victor J. Palagano III Prints
The Brooklyn Bridge image is a long exposure taken at night. The Alaskan glacier photo was taken with a pinhole camera. The bridge at Multnomah falls. I could live there. Like an Ewok I would. And sleep to the sound of the falls. New Orleans in the early morning fog is a wonderful place. This image of the Golden Gate bridge was taken on one of my first visits to San francisco. I had returned several times over a few years to photograph the bridge again from that exact spot. Anyway. The road is calling...

Phoenix Fashion Week 2009

This weekend I'm photographing Phoenix Fashion Week for Privacy Wear/Privacy Premium (PRVCY). A designer clothing company showing their line of great looking denim jeans for men and women as well as "breast cancer clothing". You can read about their dedication to help fight breast cancer and create awareness on their website Privacy Wear and PRVCY Premium

Eyeful Photo Shoot Fact: I usually feel like a minority when I'm working. Not this time! That's a brilliant stack of photographers! I certainly felt protected from all of those models. Now go check out the PRVCY jeans.
