Benson Blake Photography

Naomi’s CD Cover

I was recently asked to photograph gospel artist Naomi Thomas for her upcoming CD release. We were able to capture lots of different looks for her CD packaging and promotional materials. Part of her session took place at our studio, and the rest on location at New Community Temple COGIC in Portsmouth VA. Here are a few of my favorites.

    Great work Benson. Naomi (Kim) looks wonderful in the pictures. I love her ministry and she is a gift to the body of Christ and represents VA and the Kingdom well.

    Thanks for all the work and travel that you do as our official photographer. You have been with us (VA Mass) from the beginning.

    Grace & Peace

    It was definitely a pleasure and honor that God allowed our paths to cross. I am so glad I was fortunate enough to work on the dvd and album. If you get a chance ask her about the infamous “Jelly Beans and Cheese” ;)

    Man this shoot is great conceptually.
    Your images give her site a lot of looks
    and feeling.

    Your style is FULL FRAME. Each element composition, lighting, talent direction (which you do very well), let me try something edgy factor are all present.

    Benson, you might want to consider doing some film directing; you’ve got the full breath of a producer/director/cinematographer.

    Happy Thanksgiving –

    Favor to you,
