Some photos from the first ice storm of the season. Shot from my doorstep, since it was pretty treacherous out there beyond the step.

Photo Shoot: Flowers by Binaifer

0 Comments. Click here to leave your own comment.
A recent photo assignment involved shooting several flower arrangements by the Virginia-based floral designer Binaifer Davar. She has a website at here and wanted to add new photos of some of her recent designs. 

Binaifer has trained at the Judith Blacklock Flower School in London, and is a contributing writer for Blacklock’s The Flower Arranger magazine. In 2009, Binaifer was selected as one of 12 semi-finalists for Chief Flower Designer for the Obama White House. She is based in Falls Church, Virginia and provides flower designs to clients throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

This was a challenging assignment but I think the results speak for themselves.

You can contact Binaifer (pronounced "Bin-EYE-fer") by email here: binaifer at aol dot com (note that I no longer post actual email addresses because nowadays "webbots" scan everything on the web looking for emails in the typical "" format for spamming purposes.)
