pgp271: Sunset & Silhouettes

an end-of-the-day exploration with earthSistas GreenRose & FlowerChild After a productive day of shooting, earthSistas GreenRose and FlowerChild took a moment to relax and review the images they had created. And as the sun had started to set and we had a one more moment of inspiration; silhouettes at sunset. This wasn’t an image set ; simply an exploration. Some of the captures  were irreverent while others were intense. All were casual; a couple of beautiful people relaxing at the end of the day. GreenRose and FlowerChild watched the darkness fall on day well spent. More...

pgp260: Solanjel’s Spotlite – Ashley Donald, photographer

Solanjel About three months ago, I had the opportunity to do a photoshoot with one of my friends.  It was a perfect suggestion, seeing as how I love posing in front of the camera  and she had just bought a new camera and was looking to get back into photography.  After doing a couple photoshoots, I sat down with Ashley Donald for a brief Q&A about her photography and her “roots”. How did you get interested in photography? I’ve always been interested in visual arts and photography is a way to capture life…I mean, life is amazing and when you take pictures you get to share your...

pgp221: Solangel… a peaceful interlude

words by SolAngel I wanted to do something peaceful. I was inspired by a promo photo of Marsha Ambrosius for her new single ”I Hope She Cheats on You (With a Basketball Player)”. She’s sitting in a window, looking out and everything about it was just so casual. That’s how I am on a daily basis -ultra casual- and I wanted Vince to capture it. The rooftop was the perfect location with the backdrop of the city behind me and the mid-morning sun casting it’s golden rays across a clear blue sky on everything and adding to the peacefulness and solidarity that comes from...

pgp213: Remy, the EccentricSoul…. part three – passion

In the end its all about passion… Maybe, to be more specific, its about the liberation of passions. For so many its not easy to express rage, faith extreme sadness or joy as they are motivated fires within us that we hide deeply inside so that no one else can touch them. And in the process we lose touch ourselves. Recently, SepiaAngel collaborated with the EccentricSoul to create an intense set of striking captures. (Check them out by clicking here.) In her commentary on the experience she said, “It was about creating art through my emotions. I thought this would be a difficult feat...

pgp205: Remy, the EccentricSoul…. part two – cool

Part two of the 3-part series on the EccentricSoul. This time we focus on cool. Dramatic contrasts of shadows and light, splashes of colour and attitude. These are the characteristics that are common in his works and they are not unusual tools for producing images for fashion editorial work and when you look at what Remy does you see the roots of a fashion editorial approach. But then he does that Remy thing. That step of creative discovery and collaboration with his muse where they both stretch, reach and find the inner passion that adds depth, strength and fragility to an expression that is...

pgp194: Remy, the EccentricSoul…. part one – colour

He says he’s an EccentricSoul with a vision. And from his imagination he tells stories of the unseen.  Indeed. As an artist of photography, Remy constantly, seeks to elevate himself creatively by stepping outside of his fine art comfort zone and manifesting his style for fashion and couture. And he seeks out women and men who DARE to step outside the box with him. All of his models agree that when they work with him, he definitely takes their ports to another level. Remy employs colours in their vivid and primary forms. He exploits their richness to enhance the passion in his captures....

pgp105: Thoughts behind Shells…

So I’m at Apache Cafe and Lounge and I am talking to some of the patrons about the portal and the types of images I think we should capture. Artistic…sexy…provocative, most of the things we say are typically used for almost every other venue that focuses on creating beautiful images of women. But no matter how sexy or revealing, there is some aspect to the content that has to be considered. Now not all of what is posted to the portal will be for everyone’s taste. And I personally feel that I walk a line when I consider what I want to create for the Garden. And this is the...

pgp101: a centennial moment to ponder…

Just taking a breath. This is my 101st entry and I was just reflecting on how this all came to me and what its about. It didn’t start with the conversation on hair. It was before that and it was at this place. And this model, Xian, was one of the muses. In a week or so, (ironing out a few technical kinks) the portal will go live and this blog will be a part of it. And it will be as the blog has been, a repository of images of the beauty, glamour & sensuality of EarthSistas, a haven for ideas on the influences of Afrocentricity in art, culture, sexuality, politics, music, family…life....

pgp093: Susannah Marie

Susannah Marie has a message for those she seeks to inspire… I’m a Muse; playful, sensual and lots of energy. There’s a fine line between sensual and sexual but nevertheless it is distinct. I apply movement to my poses, graceful moves, I move slowly enough for you to tell me when to stop and I’ll hold the pose. My body is sculpted and expressive so bring lots of film, photo cards or whatever it is that you use. I have some music to bring with me, if you have some then shoot for slow classical (piano concertos – Chopin) ambient music/world music/tribal music...

pgp088: Charlisha…a pictorial moment

Charlisha is a model that I’ve recently spoken to online about joining us in the Garden. A Fashion Merchandising student, Charlisha wants to focus on art and fashion photography as both a model and photographer. Being a lover of art, she wants to use captures to provoke visual stimulations to the mind. She has also ventured into acting. Her beauty has been captured by the likes of Patrick Covington , Kever Conyers III , the KS Collection and B L O P H O T O. You can check out her modeling portfolio here and her photography portfolio here. I look forward to seeing what she chooses...
