Some love from the Stella Maris Dance Ensemble

I’ve been a bad blogger, I’ve been tardy with my posts and I’m honestly trying to address it. This is more of a check in so to speak as compared to my usual updates. Restaurant week is a few days away so the round up is over for the most part, what seems to be left is the build up events which are more of a social nature which isn’t really my forte of assignments. However in poker we bluff and play the hand we’ve been dealt.

About a week ago I was invited to the Stella Maris Dance Ensemble 20th anniversary award ceremony by Souad Lawrence (founder). I had a late assignment but I still managed to make it to the ceremony which was held at the  Stella Maris pastoral center. I missed the cocktails and mingle but got there just in time for a tribute to Monika Lawrence (founder) by the SMDE dancers after which they dived directly into the awards.

They thanked various organizations and individuals (internal and external) for their support over the years me being one of them for photography services at the annual Stella Maris Dance Ensemble dance performance at the little theatre. I’m still sporting my camera and ID card :( as I came directly from work, u can tell I rarely get on the other side of a viewfinder.

Here’s a jog down memory lane of previous SDME performances at the little theatre for your viewing delight. Stella Maris Dance Ensemble  2011 performance and Stella Maris Dance Ensemble  2012 Performance.  The 2013 show is roughly a week away, I urge you to go be amazed by they art of story telling through dance. They are a talented bunch you will not be disappointed.

My other area of interest is sports and environmental portraiture I've photographed many fashion editorials for the Jamaica Gleaner's Flair Magazine among other photojournalism assignments for the gleaners daily publications ranging from sports, special features, food, lifestyle and Hard News. My inspirations come from photographers such as Joe McNally, Chase Jarvis, David Hobby, Annie Leibovitz, Jerry Ghionis, Joe Buissink among others. The long and short of it all though is I love taking photos and Making things look beautiful..
