I was once again honored to be invited to do a photo shoot for Barbara Schuessler, aka "La Flamencista". She will be performing in October at the 2nd Annual Mediterranean Nights event in Tucson. She needed a photo for an upcoming ad in Shimmy Magazine.

Thank you, Barbara, it was a blast! The photo to the left was chosen for the ad. Unfortunately, it was cropped quite a bit to fit in.

    1. Yes, Lorretta… cannot take a bad photo of the beauty, heat, and passion. Barbara has trained most of her life in the traditional flamenco style and loves line and form. I always enjoy taking photos of her and her student / performers.

      Tickled that you love my art. Thanks!
