Portraits of St. Louis Artists - Thomas Shepherd

Thomas Shepherd, a photographer, has the unique position of having been featured on this blog twice. I first met him last summer, during St. Louis' annual artists open studio weekend. He has his own space at Soulard Art Market and that's where I photographed him both times. Click here for the post about him on July 27, 2008.

Shepherd always seems to have a puckish quality when I meet him and his work is full of appropriate wonder. Check out a selection of his work
here. Doesn't he look cool in the tuxedo?

Now. Soulard Art Market did a little feature about me and this series on the gallery blog.

That's awesome! What a glowing review! Not that it's undeserved.

Lovely portraits in this series too.

I like em both but the bottom on is extra fab. Love the light. The portrait behind had me scrambling for my reading glasses. I enlarged and it still looks out of whack/blurry. Help me out here.

Now I"m off to read your review. How great is that!! See, you cannot quit while you're ahead!
