About Me

Several strands run through my life. Photography is one, music and writing and the outdoors the others. I modeled for awhile, I may return to that, but in the meantime:

I am a professional musician.

Most of the women I shoot for zivity are not professional models - they are mothers, students, musicians, sculptors, dancers, designers, photographers - these women are artists in their own right.

I think you will see my photography is in a perpetual state of improvement if you look at my older sets here. Thanks for your support - as you can see, the feedback & inspiration you provide makes a difference.

“Art is what we call...the thing an artist does. It's not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making. Something risky. Something human. Art is not in the ...eye of the beholder. It's in the soul of the artist.”
― Seth Godin

“A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth. ”
-Richard Avedon

“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
― Ansel Adams

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you, the less you know.”
― Diane Arbus

“People spot a big black lens, and they worry about what they're doing, or how their hair looks. Nobody see the person holding the camera.”
― Erica O'Rourke, Torn

“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”
― Henri Cartier-Bresson

    You know how things work ... the weather ... transportation ... waking up ... getting out of bed ...

    I get a few days off so that's why I will hopefully be able to shoot tomorrow with two new models :)

    I didn't do much, birthdays aren't a big to-do ...BUT ... I ate some delicious food, nothing out of the ordinary, but I really enjoyed it. That's a good birthday as far as I'm concerned :)

    Thanks for the friend request.. I'd love to chat with you sometime in the studio, feel free to stop by.

  • Posted on 05/30/2014 by TameBabyParrots   
    Oh, you're nearby! That's fantastic! I'm looking to get re-connected to the zivity community this summer!

  • Posted on 05/30/2014 by rholdphoto   
    That's awesome... Unfortunately for me I am having to close down my physical studio this weekend. I do want to meet up and do lunch one day so we can swap ideas and so forth, maybe even work out a collaboration on a set.

  • Posted on 05/30/2014 by TameBabyParrots   
    That sucks. I don't have a studio, so I'm just going to pound the pavement a bit to find good spots to shoot on location.

  • Posted on 05/30/2014 by rholdphoto   
    I've got some great locations to pick from that I'll be glad to share with you... pm'ing you my # so we can chat.

    thank you very much. The new avatar pic is a headshot taken from one of the images in my Derriere Extraordinaire. I liked the headshot, so asked David to crop it down for me.

  • Posted on 02/15/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    No, just the same old same old. But I got to be with someone I love, and we did our same boring old thing but with fancy chocolates. That's nice in its simplicity.

  • Posted on 02/13/2012 by KittyCupcake   
    Happy Valentine's!

    <3 thanks

  • Posted on 02/04/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    maybe lost, but not forgotten?

    sonic hug?
    I'll howl at the moon,
    and some night, when the moon is out,
    see if you can hear it.

  • Posted on 02/11/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    Oh, I can howl.... I'm always too loud. (or too quiet). I'll be -just- loud enough you can hear, if you want.

  • Posted on 01/29/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    sent you a message!

  • Posted on 02/02/2012 by GGPstudios   
    Thanks a bunch J! I've entered so many and even won a few on points, but an actual win has been elusive but now much appreciated. Finally my "prizes Won" tab is not empty!
    Thanks again! Hope all is well with you.

  • Posted on 01/29/2012 by Kealani   
    I remember Mel! Can't wait to see this project your working on :)

  • Posted on 01/29/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    This one won't result in any kind of photos, I don't know if she is still shooting!

  • Posted on 02/02/2012 by Kealani   
    Hmm...what type of project you workin on then? And thanks for your congrats, so exciting and I really loved shooting that set! It's one of my favorite's! Oh and I like your new set with DirtyStiches...simple and so beautiful, like the viewer is there.

  • Posted on 02/02/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    A book of prose and poetry (mostly Mel's) and photography (some of it http://www.zivity.com/models/sombra/photosets/41)

  • Posted on 02/02/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    And thanks... it's been neat because now I've worked with stitches several times but we've managed to get a lot of different styles out of it. The next one is pretty different too.

  • Posted on 01/26/2012 by ThingsToLookAt   
    Hey you!

  • Posted on 01/26/2012 by AftermathPhoto   
    Thanks for the add! I see you shoot dudes for Zivity -- is the process the same as for uploading sets of female models? I've had some interest from men to shoot for this site, but I haven't worked with men before. Any tips on how to bring the best put of a male model?

  • Posted on 01/26/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    Yeah, it's the same thing - except I don't think you can have dude sets in contests. I don't think it's that different to shoot with a guy, verses a girl, excepting that everyone is a little different... It's easy with Celluloid, we live together :)

  • Posted on 01/25/2012 by SpecialK   
    Thanks for the friend request; it's exciting to meet new artists as I'm learning how to navigate my way on here. Yay for women photographers!

  • Posted on 02/10/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    Yay indeed!

  • Posted on 01/25/2012 by KittyCupcake   
    Heya, thanks for the friend request. You've got an amazing body of work!

  • Posted on 01/29/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    Thank you!

  • Posted on 01/24/2012 by MonaCataldo   
    oo yes!!!! that sound too cool!

  • Posted on 01/24/2012 by asianbella   
    Thank you for your kind words. I love your style esp. Toybox Dreams. ~bella

  • Posted on 01/29/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    Oooh, thanks, I'm glad you like that one. It wasn't what I originally envisioned, but it's always fun to experiment and see what develops...

  • Posted on 02/11/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    I'm doing great, new set published last night and I'm shooting a new model tomorrow!

  • Posted on 01/24/2012 by RAphotography   
    Thank you for you FR.

  • Posted on 01/24/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    My pleasure!

  • Posted on 01/24/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    I'm doing good... one class later tonight but I have the afternoon to study at home. I'm procrastinating on zivity instead.

  • Posted on 01/23/2012 by MaellaCaiVane   
    Thanks for the add!

  • Posted on 01/23/2012 by TameBabyParrots   
    I'm back to shooting after a long break! I've got two new sets, two new ones in the queue... hopefully new models too! Glad to see you're still around :)

  • Posted on 01/15/2012 by Ryamae
