2 cool projects from 2 of my favorite photographers.....

It's a new year and I was thinking back to all of my industry relationships and wanted to give a shout out to some of my friends who are successfully working their own projects.

One of my favorite celebrity photographers, Alan Mercer, is doing an amazing job with his online magazine, Alan Mercer's Profiles.  For the last two years, Alan has been doing amazing photoshoots and interviews with some of Hollywood's most glamourous legends and newcomers.  Along with stunning photography, people like John Schneider, Gilles Marini, Ruth Buzzi, Jackee' Harry, Greg Allman, Jane Lynch, Dayanara Torres and many more, give in-dept insights to their careers and longevity in the business.  Check out his fabulous magazine,  Alan Mercer's Profiles and be sure to check back often as he promises more interviews and more stars......

p.s. Check out this shoot with legendary jazz singer Marlena Shaw.... Alan providing the stunning image of her, of course, that I did with him a few years back.  Check out his updated interview with Miss Shaw. from March 2010....

My next friend, international celebrity photographer, Jonas Mohr, has a fantastic project that he put together called Mugshotswhich takes an interesting look at 38 portraits of redemption and inspiration from the people who lived through it.  Even a few celebrities like Coolio, Antwone Fisher, Manny Jimenez, Eric Roberts tell their stories.  Each story provides a universal tale of triumph over adversity and is accompanied by Jonas' beautiful black and white images. Check out the website for more information on the book and feel free to contact Jonas to get your copy of this beautiful coffee table book.
