No really…how do you feel?

Trust me, the winter of our discontent is eerily intense when it takes place at this family occasion.

Richard III Act 1 Scene 1…from the perspective of a mob boss.

Glad I could grab a few stills in-between takes.

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

Fire and Fall Back

Working through the process of creating the main image for singer/songwriter Richie Kaye’s new website proved to be a truly collaborative effort.  Richie knew what he wanted the image to express but was also very open-minded, which in my opinion opened our possibilities and put us on a very creative path. Styling by Priscilla Russo.

His new album “Fire & Fall Back” is out now and getting some great reviews. Album cover concept and styling by Priscilla Russo. All images created on location at Lyric Hall in New Haven.
