by Christina V Howard Q&A Marneen, tell us about your exciting projects. “I was recently back in Los Angeles, California and proud to be one of the artists chosen to sing on Grammy Producer, David Longoria’s new charity CD ‘We Are One’. The CD is going to provide musical education scholarships. David has worked with Bono and Kenny Rodgers. This is exciting and inspiring. Also I am busy on another project, I’m editing footage that was shot awhile back for the music video to my new single ‘I’ve Never Stopped Loving You’ This song was produced by Steve Velenzuela who has a gold record from his work with Kelly Clarkson on her greatest hits CD Volume One. The music video stars actor John Napoleon in the role of Columbo, the drummer and sweet lover man. For the flashback sequences I’ve created an old film rain effect over a black and white monochrome, and I really like the way it turned out. These still captures give you a first look. The rest of the music video in Woodland Hills, California by UCSB film school graduate David Finkelstein. The mastered vocals track has released on Vimeo to rave reviews.” Do you have a preview glimpse to show us? “Here it is everyone, check it out. Special thanks to John Napoleon for his great acting in this music video, which I hope to have the rest of it finished by the end of the month. com/181001794” www.vimeo. You got married to John Harrison this year and you travel back and forth to Australia, what was your first reaction to arriving there for the first time? “Yes, John Harrison is a famous Melbourne Author and it was wintertime and a huge contrast to Sunny California. But John got me an electric blanket and heater. He is a very caring wonderful gentleman, with a wonderful sense of humour and is very supportive to my Career. He has two adorable Cats but unfortunately I am very allergic to cats. I would dearly love to cuddle them but I cant. It’s wonderful having a kind caring husband and because of my work in Los Angeles I get to go back and forth. Every day we communicate and John is very supportive of my work. He is my rock. He is my wonderful Soul Mate and I never knew such happiness could exist.” Marneen, you have won many awards. “Yes, I won 2014 Song of the year - Honourable mention for release ‘My Love’, voted on by Gwen Steffani, Alicia Keys, Phil Collins, and Lenny Kravitz.

You are always a very sophisticated stylish lady, tell us your secret. “To be always happy in what I like and not what is in the latest fashions forecast trends to enjoy the great fun of choosing my own garments and mix and matching sometimes colour coordinating, sometime choosing bright and bold prints, but at all time being feminine. I love lace and satins, velvets and ladylike elegant glamour.” Tell us about your song writing Marneen, all your albums are very originally beautiful, what inspires you? “Life and emotions, I feel each song and the lyrics reflect much emotions.

She was born in Mexico City to a highly successful Lithuanian Immigrant father, from humble beginnings and her Peruvian born immigrant mother. She was taught from the very beginning of her life, the value and importance of family, education, diligence of purpose, and respect for the needs of others less fortunate in Society. The youngest and only daughter in a family of four older brothers, she had to quickly learn how to practice the values instilled in her by her loving and highly successful parents. Her father’s lesson to young Estella was to always see the glass as half full, rather than half empty; would serve her well for the rest of her life. She was provided with a loving Exclusive© Tim Glass and stable home ruled by her strong disciplinarian mother, with whom from time to time Estella would experience confrontations; while she learned to spread her wings and grow. Her mother demanded perfection in all of her children and most especially, in young Estella. However, her mother also exposed Estella to the arts, music, dance, literature, theatre, sports, and the finer points of good manners and proper social intercourse; with people from all walks of life and economic strata. These disciplines would come to serve Estella well as she grew into young womanhood and began her lifelong interests and pursuits in higher education.

At the tender age of eighteen, she was married to Eduardo Umansky and the couple was blessed with two loving children, Mauricio and Sharon.

Moving to the United States with her husband and two children in 1976, Estella fulfilled her dream for higher education. While learning to speak the English language she enrolled at the University of Southern California where she graduated Cum Laude while at the same time, still fulfilling her duties as a wife and a mother. In order to meet her familial obligations, and to create an educational schedule that would allow her to meet her requirements at home, she first attended The California School of Professional Psychology and later the California Graduate Institute of Psychology.

Bruce Smith by Bob Alston Bruce Smith is an award winning photographer, based in Tamarac, Florida.Popular with Celebrities and models. Here he tells of his journey. Q&A Do you remember your very first camera? “Yes... my mother bought me my first camera for my ninth birthday, which was a Kodak point and shoot camera that had the shutter button in the front of the camera. It used 126mm film and those old square flash cubes. I spent almost all of my allowance each week buying film and flash cubes and the film processing. My first SLR camera, I bought while I was in ninth grade was a Minolta ST-101. When that got stolen from my locker in school, I bought a Canon F-1.” What inspired you to take up photography? “Well, since my mother bought me my first camera ever, I would say that my mother had inspired me to take some photography Which was your most memorable shoot and why? classes, but I had always enjoyed going through and Ansel Adams BW photography. I remember getting a subscription to National Geographic when I was around 14 solely for the photos that were in their publications.” Do you prefer indoor or outdoor shots? “I enjoy shooting both indoor and outdoor locations, but I actually prefer to shoot at outdoor locations. I live in South Florida, where the weather is beautiful 98% of the year, and there are so many beautiful outdoor locations to shoot at of which I am always seeking out new locations. I feel I can be much more creative with my shoot designs when I shoot outdoors. You can’t beat Mother nature at her best. Lol!” “Hmmm, my most memorable shoot... I think I would have to say my most memorable shoot would have to be one of my recent model shoots with a young and fairly new model. For our first shoot together, I thought it might be better for her if we shoot at a local park which is located within a local country themed city near where I live. Once we each arrived at the park, I could already tell that she was a bit nervous. During a little fun conversation we had before we started the shoot, she mentioned she was fairly new to modelling and that she was kind of nervous. I told her that I will do my best to help make her as comfortable as I possibly can shooting with me, and because she has beautiful features, I was certain that we will be able to create some awesome images during this shoot. We began the shoot and within about 10-15 minutes into our first photo shoot together, and possibly only her second or third time in from of a camera, I could tell she was warming up and becoming more comfortable being in front of the lens shooting with me. As we went along with the photo shoot she just started hitting poses on her own, that a seasoned model would come up with. I kept clicking away. During that shoot I captured almost 2 full 16gb CF memory cards. In short, our first shoot together, I would say was a huge success and I was able to capture some of the best images 14

I have ever created on a model shoot. We shot together 4 more times before she moved back to her home town, and captured so many more amazing images during each photo shoot. She called me and told me that she still wants to shoot with me whenever she comes back to South Florida to visit or if she can ever back.” Which genre’s of photography do you cover? “Of course I love doing Glamour and Fashion photography, but I also enjoy photographing band performances as well as collector and muscle cars,and corporate events, although Model, Fashion, and Glamour photography are what I enjoy the most.” CVH 1st Class wish Bruce every success in his superb photography.
