up and coming artist…


Meet Steve.

He’s an all around great guy who got the most AWESOME, fun, incredible, super-sweet news about a month ago…he’s been hired to write music for Oprah!!!  What an incredible opportunity for a young and talented musician and composer. 

Not only is he a super talented musician (besides composing, he plays guitar, bass, drums and keyboards) but he’s kind, funny, AND he’s been in martial arts for EIGHTEEN whopping years.  So, definitely multi-talented, I’d say.  I just love knowing individuals with passion flowing into so many different areas and GUESS WHAT…he’s going to compose some music for MOI!

I’m flippin’ excited.  :)

So, the music company that he gets his deals through is doing web and printed articles about him and they needed a headshot. 

I think he looks fab.  :)   Anyone have a preference?  Which one should he send them???

    What a handsome man!! All of the photos are great, hard choice. I like #1! Tell Oprah I said hi, just kidding! Congratulations!!

    of the headshots I like #3, the eyes really stand out. I also like the b & w one were he looks edgy and artistic.

    I like #1 the best. You do such a great job of capturing the eyes in your portrait work and the smile on top of it, in that shot really makes the photo feel like a warm and welcome change from the smile-free photos I too often see. Hope you get what you want musically. And thank you very much for your visit and comments to my photoblog. It means a lot from such a talent =)

    How fun! And how exciting for Steve!

    This is a tough one – they’re all really sweet. I would go #2 and maybe even convert to b&w. It has that artistic look and feel to it – or so i think! :)

    Fab bokeh and I’m loving those specular highlights. Great job girl!

    I like # 1 also! Although I like all of them, I think the smile makes this picture fabulous!!!

    As always, good job Maggie!

    Wow, tough choices! They all look great… I guess I will say #1 too. So is Steve single or what? You forgot to mention that part… since you DID do a great job of marketing him and everything! ;) (not for me of course.. don’t take that the wrong way!!!)
