Revamped Website and New images from The Hollywood Portrait Project

Cool news for a hot summer day….The new website for www.LouRusso.com is up and now features the ability to fit the screen you’re viewing from to optimize the space and of course, the experience! Also, here are new images from The Hollywood Portrait Project.  So many people to thank for their amazing work, a truly talented group!  Makeup, hair and styling executed stunningly by Valerie Gengras and our models are Rachael Shaw Lamphier who works over at the Pita Group and her husband Dan. My wife Priscilla is an asset to any shoot and her eye for details and posing is priceless. This shoot was challenging and very rewarding, I love the process of shaping light to create just the right look. None of this would have been possible this time around without the perfect wardrobe from Vintage Lorry In North Branford.  Lorry was instrumental in helping us find just the right clothing and accessories and her suggestions made all the difference. Enjoy the newly revamped website and I’ll be sure to post more portraits!Hollywood-Portraits-Lou-Russo-4fin Hollywood-Portraits-Lou-Russo-5fin- Hollywood-Portraits-Lou-Russo-8 RachaelDan_3

The Look

I’ve always been drawn to classic portraits of actresses of the 1930’s and 40’s made by the great Hollywood photographers like George Hurrell. Fatima was looking to do some head-shots and this is definitely one of my favorites from her session. Amazing hair & makeup done beautifully by Amanda Russell. We did a few funky ones as well which I’ll share later on…
