Smooth Sailing

It’s been a long hard road for my good friend and client, Shan Coleman. Like many of us, a struggling artist trying to become an overnight success, Shan has worked diligently to create his first masterpiece “Smooth Sailing”. I am honored that Shan has used some of my images on his CD and in his promo pieces. Shan is a talented reggae artist who recorded his first single CD in Jamica, his home. You can pick up his first release at Gail Ann Studio & Gallery for $5.oo. Or visit his website at

I had the opportunity to shoot stills for Jamican reggae artist Shan Coleman this past weekend.  Surrounded by makeup artists from MAC and models and actors from the area,  Producer  David Jofre expertly moved his subjects into position for the creating of Shan Coleman’s upcoming video “Night Still Young”.

The shooting continues! We met last Friday to shoot a beach party! What fun.

Meet Shan Coleman – Reggae Artist

Belli Vita – Belly & Body Casting

starI have had the pleasure of working with both of these great artists.
I just met Shan and was overwhelmed by his sense of spirit and his smooth flowing reggae style.
We had a wonderful photo session. Several of my images are featured on his website.

Laura Marie is another great artist. She has an eye for design and color and it shows in her belly castings.
I have photographed many of her pieces that appear on her website.
Stop by to see her castings.

and of course, the fine art work and portraiture of Gail Ann Photography.

We look forward to seeing all of you at this end of town.
