Good Morning: Jake Coleman Wilson by Emerging Talent Images

When I first spotted shots from Emerging Talent Images, as usual, I knew I wanted to feature some on FH. It is difficult to put into words what initially attracted me. I am tempted to say 'fresh' and 'clean' but that does not quite do it justice and diminishes the skill involved with it's creation. Bill from Emerging Talent shoots mostly on location using natural light. The vibrancy he captures with color, in clothes, background and skin tone, reminds me how most of us look first thing in the morning. Just out of the shower, in clean clothes, before the elements and stresses of the day wear away some of our sheen.

This vibrancy is present within the Mississippi photographers studio shots as well as location. I think creating such appealing and welcoming images stems from Bill's initial goal of helping aspiring models to build their ports. Having amassed a fairly significant body of work and gained a bit of a reputation, Bill has since gone professional but welcomes aspiring models to contact him about shooting!

'I continue to enjoy working with models, helping them build an exceptional portfolio of images that will work to secure their ultimate success in this industry. But I am now in a position to be more selective about the projects I choose to do.'

'Photography has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I started shooting film with a Minolta Maxxum at age 16 and have been hooked ever since. The digital age, with first a Canon and now Nikon, took my work to a whole new level.'
Bill from ETI

20 year old Jake Coleman Wilson is the perfect model to showcase Bill's work, Great face and body and beautiful blue eyes for Bill to bring out. Jake also has the ability to take on a variety of looks and moods. A photographer as well, Jake is at ease in front of the camera and open to creative ideas within his work.

'I knew right away that Jake would be an excellent addition to my portfolio and I wasn't disappointed at our initial shoot, or at subsequent shoots for that matter. Jake is a natural. He has an innate sense of how he needs to pose to look his best in a shot. He is professional and easy to work with. He takes direction well and is willing to do what it takes to get an outstanding image. Jake is currently in London pursuing his dreams,'

Kudos to Jessica Lange in American Horror Story

'There's not going to be a swimming pool, you stupid slut'

In my last year in University I took this incredible course called 'The History of Mental Disorders'. The course was incredible as the professor didn't really teach much he just pressed play each week on VCR. Each week he played one movie after another about the history of every kind of mental disorder depicted in the movies. One of these movies was Jessica Lange's turn as Francis Farmer in Francis from 1982. Up until the point I had only seen Lange on television in King Kong and thought of her more as a sex symbol more than an actress. I of course was wrong. Lange has become a favorite of mine. I cannot believe I waited until just a few years ago to first watch Tootsie, but I have watched it twice since.

Lange is absolutely brilliant as Constance in American History Story and although I love entire show, Lange's scenes, and quotes are my favorite part of the 44 minutes. Lange's line delivery is incredible and she plays off each of the cast members equally well. I am going to miss her relationship with Ade, but given the dead seem never to actually die on this show hopefully there will be more.

'Do you know what they think when you walk down the street'

Some my favorite men who co-starred with Lange:

Chris O'Donnell in
Men Don't Leave

I have not really loved the trajectory of Chris O'Donnell's career a teenager I loved Chris in his early films. I haven't seen Men Don't Leave in awhile and will have to track it down on Amazon to watch again.

Dennis Quaid in
Everybody's All-American

Dennis Quaid, Dennis Quaids butt, nuff said!

Jeff Bridges in
King Kong

I was just a kid when I saw the 76 version of King Kong on television during a Saturday afternoon matinee. From there I tried to watch it every time it came on tv until I finally managed to tape it on my VHS machine. The film is flawed but to me is so much more enjoyable than the recent Peter Jackson version. This King Kong has Jeff Bridges (with his long hair), Jessica, and an Ape whose emotions are far more real, even in an Ape Suit, than Jackson could digitally portray.

Jack Nicholson in
The Postman Always Rings Twice

I think the first time I saw Jack Nicholson on screen when I was about 10 or 11. I went with a friend and his family to see 'The Witches Of Eastwick'. I fell in love with two things during that movie, Michelle Pfieffer and Jack's acting. Jack's devil was brilliantly over the top and I have sought out most of Jack's work since.
