Sparkman Clark, Actress

Sparkman Clark on Instagram

Sparkman came to my studio to update her images.    This was an easy shoot because she’s so comfortable in front of the camera and she has an ability to bring out different aspects of her personality visually.

She says, “There are so many actors I’ve admired over the years but its the obscure ones like Stanley Tucci that I really love.  I loved Johnny Depp because I loved how in every movie was a completely different person to the point that you didn’t even know what he looked like.  I wanted to do totally different characters and completely change my look each time.”

According to Sparkman, what brought her to me was her desire for, “Photos that you knew were by a professional photographer in a real studio.  Photos taken by someone who has been doing this a long time.  I wanted to be photographed din great clothing and have a real, authentic smile.  I wanted people to be able to see these images and envision me in a storefront window, selling their clothes or their product.  And that is what we accomplished.  We got so many great photos.”

Erica Mena, Prom Queen

My wife loves Reality TV.  I’m indifferent at best, but I must confess my love for Love and Hip Hip NY.  It’s dramatic, funny and much more real than people usually give reality shows credit for.  We’ve seen drug abuse, jail time, abortions and assaults on this series.  It doesn’t get more real than that.   They’ve actually filmed segments of 2 episodes of the show in my studio.  Pretty much everyone on the program comes across as “difficult” on TV, so I both excited and cautious when I was assigned to photograph Erica Mena.  And, truth be told, there was just a tad of drama on set for a few minutes, but I won’t go into that here…  Suffice it to say, knowing that we’d have a hairstylist, makeup artist, fashion stylist and nail tech on set, I knew this was going to be a long day.  I also knew we’d produce some great imagery when we were done.
