The first picture surprised me the colors and the expression of the model.

i didn't know his work .
i am fascinated by the fact i can't believe this is photography .
i could swear these works are paintings . the tipical north american realism in paintings .
he gave fantastic values to the images . all the values of the photography are there and not less strong ... but there is something else hard to name it .
the best thing is that there isn't trycks about it . is all made with light and a incredible sense of composition .
i loved . thank you !!

Sin duda, de entre todos los retratos, me quedo con el último.

These scintillating photos tell as much about character as costume and deserve to be in a book!

Your pics are just amazing.

You have a very wonderfully blessed New Year!


Para você,
Desejo o sonho realizado.
O amor esperado.
A esperança renovada.
Para você,
Desejo todas as cores desta vida.
Todas as alegrias que puder sorrir.
Todas as músicas que puder emocionar.

Para você neste novo ano,
Desejo que os amigos sejam mais cúmplices,
Que sua família esteja mais unida,
Que sua vida seja mais bem vivida.
Gostaria de lhe desejar tantas coisas...
Mas nada seria suficiente...

Então, desejo apenas que você tenha muitos desejos.
Desejos grandes...
e que eles possam te mover a cada minuto,
ao rumo da sua FELICIDADE!!!

Abraços com todo meu carinho
FELIZ 2010
