Photo show and book release on Wednesday

On Wednesday, Nov 25 (night before Thanksgiving) I will be part of a three photographer show along with (Holga Queen) Michelle Bates and Mark Gardiner. We will be showing photos we have taken over the past 5 years of the Moisture Festival and will be launching a new book featuring our images of these comedy, varieté, vaudeville, and burlesque shows.

This pictorial history contains 140 pages of color photos in a soft bound 11x8.5 " book, with images from shows at Hale's Palladium, ACT, and Fremont Studios from 2005 through 2009.  The photographs are spectacular and tell the story of the festival in a beautiful way. We made quite an effort to include photos of everyone but I'm sure we missed a few nonetheless.  We did have to make a decision to limit the number of pages to keep the cost from getting out of hand.

The first print run is limited to 100 copies and will be available for $30 each. 

Join us at Hale's Ales on Wednesday, Nov 25 at 7pm to see the photographs.

I Won!

From the Portland Metro Photographic News...

"Congratulations to Seattle-based photographer and PMPN member John Cornicello on your winning SCARY photo.  The judges agree that your image was the best interpretation of PMPN's Halloween theme.

"One judge commented: "Actually made me jump when the picture opened up full size! Excellent photo-illustration.""

My thanks also go to Lara Paxton for modeling, hair, and makeup. Thanks!!
