2017 A Year in Portraits

What an incredible year we had in 2017! It was a banner year in portrait photography and I am in awe of how much we have done. I have met so many incredible people this year who have now became my friends and colleagues. I just want to thank all the amazing talent I have had the privilege to have in front of my lens. A special thanks to Fanchon Fai Watson who became my go to for so much this year and Kieone Young who carried the load for me. Thank you to all who have assisted me this year who have held a light or reflector without you all many of the shots would not have happened. Last but not least my family who continue to support and encourage me to be better every year. As 2017 leaves I look forward to an even greater 2018! Blessings to you all!

The Color of My Storm

It seems that everywhere Michelle Gibson goes she brings her infectious energy that all who come in her presence can never forget. Michelle's energy and passion are matched by few when it comes to dance.

Choreographer, educator, and performing artist, she received her BFA in Dance from Tulane University and her MFA in Dance from Hollins University/ The American Dance Festival at Duke University. 

Her teaching practice and choreographic works range from genres of the African Diaspora, Contemporary / Traditional Modern, Afro Funk, Jazz, and her own New Orleans Second Line Aesthetic. 

Cultivating her craft over the past years in an effort to preserve her culture Michelle has been teaching and creating works that are firmly rooted in New Orleans culture and has defined this idea as her own “Second Line Aesthetics ” that she has determined involves both technical and improvised movement, brass music and the embrace of communal ritual.

Sharing her culture aboard Michelle was invited September 2015 to Rennes France teaching her New Orleans Second Aesthetics and Guest Lecture with the Compagnie Engrenage and the festival Le Funk Prend Les Rennes (translated the Funk Takes the Reins).

The festival honored and focused on the brass band culture of New Orleans both music and dance also focusing on Nigerian Afrobeat .

A five year faculty member with American Dance Festival and currently a candidate working towards receiving the Katherine Dunham Technique Certification she has had wonderful opportunities teaching, lecturing, and setting choreography at various intensives, institutions and universities not to mention choreography for several theater companies and live entertainment organizations locally, in the U.S and internationally.

As an freelance artist, New Orleans native, and presently living in Dallas TX Michelle is dedicating her energies, pedagogical practice, and performance based research geared toward cultivating the community and the world aboard.

Out with old and in with the new

If there is one thing I can say about 2015 it is that it went by so fast! I guess it is true that when you are having fun time goes by fast and we had a lot of fun in 2015. I am always amazed that every year that I have been a photographer I always learn something new, have new experiences, go through new doors. 

In 2016 Omar Ramos Photography begins the year with a new partnership with Telethia Hurley to form Hurley-Ramos Wedding and Event Photography. I am so excited to work with Telethia on partnering wedding and event services. Telethia attention to detail and professionalism is outstanding and will help propel this new venture to great opportunity. Our goal is to combine my 30 years of experience and create it's own entity away from my commercial and fashion work. And as for the look of thinks we are of to a great start. Please check our new website at www.hurleyandramos.com.

I want to thank the many make up artists, stylists and photography assistants that made 2015 a memorable year in pictures. Here is look as some of my favorite photos of 2015. 

 

2016 Senior Model Ashley Allen

I like to welcome Ashley Allen as my 2016 Senior High School Model. The moment that I met Ashley she immediately stood apart from other seniors that I have photographed over the years. Her natural beauty radiates with her personality. It is very rare to photograph someone who has striking beauty with so little makeup. 

Ashley is a senior at Prosper High school "Go Eagles!" She loves traveling and dance. Her desire is to go to college to major in speech pathology and work with special education students across the world. 

Congratulations Ashley!
