A collective of highlighted artist whose work deserves to be recognized and showcased

Tear Sheet Gallery is for new and returning artist who have a body of work that deserves to be seen and enjoyed.

Nudity has been an element of my photography artwork since I began this journey back in 1998. In fact, it has been an element of my artistic vision since about the 4th grade. Initially, it was included because I appreciated the female figure and wanted to use that beauty that I found, highlighted by light and shadow and shared with the world. If you look at my earlier works they are all black and white and search for and explore the different angles and curves of the female figure. Whether these images were shot in the studio with strobes, candles or natural light, or amongst the environments harsh elements it was an exploration that taught me composition, tone control, presentation, posing, lighting, the rules of photography, how to break those rules, and a greater appreciation of the female figure. That was all to be expected though. What wasn’t expected was how much I learned about the human condition and women, specifically their relation to their body, their past: traumas, experiences with other photographers, goals, successes, failures and childhood, their aspirations, concerns, insecurities and relationships and most of all how to be a better friend to each of them.

I believe that part of why I have been honored to develop these connections with each of the women I have worked with over the last 20 years has been multifaceted. Some have become my friends, some shot with me once and stopped communicating with me after they got their images, others I lost contact with to the world, and I wonder about them often, however, in all cases, it affected them and me alike. Then somewhere........

Don't be shy!! While working on this issue I have been thrown many questions about who I am. So here is an answer to all your questions.

Illusion Gallery is back and we have a few artist and photogtaphers who have some great work to show. Also we have taken four artist and added them to our HIGHLIGHTED ARTIST. It's a free for all and this is probably my favorite SESSIONS gallery.

I've said this many times before the Illusion Gallery is my favorite SESSIONS gallery. But for this issue I've four artist who I feel need to be called out and their work highlighted. Be it, the energy they put into their images, the creativity, drive or simply I see an up and coming artist who is going to take the world by storm, these artist meet that. It can be a model turned photographer, a photographer just starting out who kills it with landscapes, a gifted artist whose street work with models blows my mind, or an artist who uses her phone and apps to create mind blowing art. These are artist who stand out and need to be highlighted in Illusion Gallery.

The 2121 Gallery is a new Instagram account that represents SESSIONS, as well as Coverart created and images liked by other artist. Please follow on IG so you can keep up with SESSIONS.

Suicide.
Formula One racing.
They both have had profound affects on my life as a man and as a photographer.
You see, my childhood best friend Joe Halverson was the person to get me jazzed about the race car circuits and the stars who played upon the stage of race car driving.
My super heroes weren’t Batman, Superman or Spider-man; they were Mario Andretti, Al Unser, Dan Gurney and Paul Newman. “Among the most fascinating sequences is a chronicle of how, in 1983, Newman began working with Carl Haas, an owner on the Can-Am circuit with whom he'd never been very friendly. The men buried the hatchet to form Newman-Haas Racing and hired Mario Andretti to drive for them.” - Amy Longsdorf -
I grew up in what is called the “Inland Empire” in Southern California. I was surrounded by race-car tracks.

We took an evening in the park and enjoyed a gathering of The Undead. This was a lot of fun and from what we learned it was their 12th annual. Creepy and fake blood emporium, have a look and enjoy the event like we did.

FOR THOSE YOU HAVE HAD OR HAVE WORKED PUBLISHED IN SESSIONS Online Magazine. NEXT YEAR WE WILL BE GOING WITH A BRAND NEW WEBSITE DESIGN APP. SO THIS SITE AND ALL THE PAGES CREATED WITH IT WILL DELETED. THE PAGES WILL REMAIN ONLINE AND IF YOU HAVE SAVED A PAGE YOU ARE IN IT WILL STILL BE AVAILABLE FOR VIEWING. YOU JUST WON'T BE ABLE TO SEE IT ON THIS SITE ANY LONGER. THIS WEBSITE DESIGN IS OUT OF DATE. NEXT YEAR IT WILL BE MODERNIZED. ADDITIONALLY THE MAGAZINE WILL BE PUBLISHED, JANUARY, APRIL, JUNE AND OCTOBER. THE POSSIBILITY OF A PRINT COPY WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE AS WELL AS A DIGITAL COPY. SALDY THIS MEANS WE MIGHT HAVE TO BEGIN CHARGING FOR ISSUES. BUT OF COURSE THIS IS ALL IN 2019, MUCH TO COME BETWEEN NOW AND THEN. MY ADVICE,...BEGIN COPYING YOUR WORK AND SAVING IT. THIS IS A GOOD THING. NEXT YEAR WILL BE A BUG JUMP FORWARD FOR THE PUBLICATION. WE ARE EVEN LOOKING INTO SHOOTING EVENTS AND ACQUIRING PRESS CREDENTIALS. AGAIN, ALL IN THE FUTURE! UNTIL THEN, COPY AND SAVE!

EVEN THOUGH THE MAGAZINE MOVES TO BEING PUBLISHED ONLY FOUR TIMES A MONTH, EVERY OTHER MONTH WE WILL POST AN ISSUE UPDATE.

When we started work on Issue 12 we found that quite a few new emerging artist either didn't know how to write a Bio or the didn't enjoy talking about themselves. So we designed a 10 question Bio. The answers were pretty interesting. We all seem to have a common thread in many ways. It's interesting. Here are the questions asked. The Bio's are with the artist galleries.

In this day and age, when we are trying to learn something new we simply google a how-to or search for a DIY. When trying to learn a new skill its hard to find something or someone that will explain how we can do it as simple and cost effective as possible. When I was 14 I started dipping into special effects make up. Which means I wanted to slit my throat, pop an eyeball out..........

NEXT PUBLICATION UPDATE IS SLATED FOR DECEMBER 1ST., WHICH WILL OFFICIALLY BE THE LAST POST FOR THIS DESIGN. COME JANUARY FIRST WE MOVE TO THE NEW DESIGN.
