About this project
In May 2012, a rare celestial event will occur in the continental United States. A solar eclipse will set down low over the horizon, passing not far from UFO hotspots Area 51 and Roswell, New Mexico. Something like this hasn't happened in 20 years, nor will it happen again for 35 years!
The purpose and inspiration for this project is to capture this rare and unique sight in beautiful, artistic images. I have anticipated this event for four years and seek to create images worthy of hanging on your wall, or in a science museum's wall.
Honing my photography skills over the years, I've developed a distinctive artistic style crafting some truly serene images. This is an opportunity to establish a high water mark in the realm of artistic fine art photography as well as putting my work on an international level.
It is my dream to create a body of magnificent, compelling artwork that can stand alone in an exhibit or gallery, that can inspire wonder, awe, and perhaps like myself, artistic minds of the future.
Lisa Marie Smith is my designated model for this project. I've worked with this spirited, stunning redhead for several years in a number of different roles. She has the logistical talent to help organize this project, the understanding of what we're trying to achieve visually, and the magnificent good looks to pull it off.
Wish Lisa Marie luck and good will on her Facebook page:
We face a number of special challenges during the shoot, not the least of which is to avoid a variety of injuries from damage to our retinas though attack by various forms of wildlife and even a remote possibility of alien abduction!! The shots we're looking for have never been done before so in joining with us, we embark together on a journey of challenge and discovery.
