Congratulations to Sunrise, Florida’s own Melanie Amaro for her X Factor USA win. She’s got an amazing voice that took her to the top of a talent-packed group. Here’s Melanie’s favorite shot from the shoot I did when I appeared on X Factor to photograph all the finalists.
This is beyond surreal… Much L-O-V-E to everyone at X Factor and Sony for my prime-time debut photographing celebrity portraits of The X Factor Finalists with SONY NEX-5N then passing the cameras out to all the contestants so they could see how easy it was to get great professional results with a camera small enough they can take it with them everywhere.
Check out Season One’s Episode: ‘One of Ten Voted Off’ of The X Factor (USA) for these portraits of Melanie Amaro, Josh Krajcik, Chris Rene, Marcus Canty, Rachel Crow, Drew, Astro, LeRoy Bell, Stacy Francis and Lakoda Rayne
To all the finalists for welcoming me to their show this week – you guys rock!
To Steve Sommers and Kayla Lindquist of Sony…thanks for believing!
To my personal fashion stylist, my lovely wife Fazia, I love you baby!
