2nd photo shoot with Aña Monique

Dean, Brando, Eastwood, Gibson . . . you can’t put them in a box. They all have this raw fire, this edge of craziness, pulsing just under the surface.

That’s what Ana and I were shooting to capture.

My good friend, Erika, is the South Carolina representative for 2012’s Miss USA. Erika is a fantastic vocalist. In 2007, she performed in Lyrique en Mer/Festival de Belle Ile, the largest Opera Festival in Western France. Erika won The Metropolitan Opera National Council auditions for the District of South Carolina and was a five-time winner of both state regional competitions of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) Competition for South Carolina and Southeast.  She made her solo debut at The Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall in New York City in 2010. Also, she was most recently seen in The New York Philharmonic’s 2011 production of Janacek’s “The Cunning Little Vixen.” Erika had the opportunity to partner with platinum-selling singer/songwriter, Edwin McCain and music producer/engineer, Noel Golden of Golden Music and Entertainment 29 on her first Classical Crossover CD project, now available on iTunes and Amazon.

Show her some love and get your friends to vote too!
