#TEAMADRAJANEAN CONTINUES TO EXPAND AND CONTRACT!

All good things come to those who wait...and to those who work hard while doing so! 

"BE POSITIVE, KIND, FORWARD MOVING!


Sometimes, we have to fall on our face, to appreciate standing up! Remember, not everything in life comes easy, and not everyone that we surround ourselves with are meant to stay for longer than they (or we) need them. I love meeting new people, and love everyone who comes into my life - even if they are not the right fit, or we grow apart, or have different idea(s) on how we are to go through this crazy wonderful thing called life. As a SAG Actress, I look forward to working with many talented people in all aspects of the entertainment industry - but, those that I chose to allow into my #TEAMADRAJANEAN Crew, know that together WE are visionaries, creating something more... bringing something more to those around us. What is that "more" that I speak of? Well, follow along on the journey, as the years unfold, so will the story. 

MAY YOU ALL BE BLESSED IN ALL THAT YOU DO! 
- Adra Janean Fenstermaker

FARE THEE WELL MY TRUSTED FRIEND

I never thought this day would come ... 
the day that you and I would be apart.


Almost 12 years we were together. Since photography class in college, when we still worked on SLR non-digital cameras, you remember, the kind that we loaded with film and processed in dark rooms. 

You were a Christmas present from my father in Michigan, way way way, back in the day.

Adra Janean and father Errol

I tried my hardest to find pictures with you in it dear tripod, but 
alas, that is not an easy task. You were most happy behind the camera, not in front of it. 

(Technically, you were under the camera, to be specific, and you did a most epic job).

We've worked together in Michigan, Montana, Idaho, Tahoe, SoCal, NorCal, Nevada ...

We traveled the nation together on planes, trains and automobiles. You even hitched a flight to Africa and back, to be of service. 


We got Media passes, just you and me - people gave us strange looks and asked how we did that with just my iPhone attached, but together we produced content for over 100 episodes of our online talk show ...


watch video HERE

We shot photos of our friends, went backstage at techno shows and festivals in multiple states ... 


... we made  HILARIOUS comedy sketches ...




You've been backpacked, strapped to bike racks ...

... filmed "Phish Fans" as well as celebrities ... 


watch video HERE

If I left you behind somewhere, I am sorry. If someone took you home while I was not looking, I hope they have many years creating with you. 

My worse fear is that you are rotting in a dump somewhere.

I don't know where you went to dear tripod, but I hope that you are happy my portable Slik U 8000



... I relied upon you to be my partner when I was ready to create ...



RIP.

I feel so lost without you.

ADRA JANEAN MODELS FOR HILLERY HYLLA PHOTOGRAPHY

"Many people who meet me, know that my main focus in my career is acting...



This image is STUNNING in COLOR and also B&W. 

Both of images where posted to social media, fans chose  

the COLOR image to add to Adra's MODEL MAYHEM

TALENT INQUIRIES: Booking@AdraJanean.com

...but what they may not realize, is that working with creative and talented photographers for still pictures and commercial print is one of my other passions. 


The thing that I love about this photo, is just how well the wardrobe 
compliments the landscape. This is a dress that I personally dyed by hand, 
and painted, the original was a plain pale pink dress sold "As Is" at a 
thrift store, missing buttons and looking unloved. I immediately knew, 
that as an artist, there was life in this garment that I wanted to share. 
the essence of this dress in print, beautiful work darling!" - Adra Janean

If you take a stroll though my blog, you will find posts giving credit to those I have been in front of their lens, or if you google search ADRA JANEAN IMAGES  you will see a wide arrangement of different looks. 


I recently had the pleasure of posing for Hillery Hylla of ImagerybyHDH in Los Angeles. I enjoyed how easy she was to shoot with, and her beautiful images so much, that we have decided to do another session soon. If you like these photos, please also LIKE her Facebook Page!" - @AdraJanean

UNION STATUS UPDATE / ADRA JANEAN IS A SAG - AFTRA ACTRESS

That's right! No more Non-Union work for actress ADRA JANEAN! 

Sometimes it just takes a leap of faith to keep your goals on track. When YOU are the only one holding YOU back, it is time to step out of your comfort zone and head into the unknown. Making the switch from Non-Union to Union Actor was kind of scary for me, honestly. I had to give up three projects that are not SAG / AFTRA, and throw my hat into a ring that is full of talented, experienced, beautiful, hard working women, all equally deserving of the roles that are offered. With the goals I set for my career for 2014-2015 though, the Universe made me realize, that without "ripping off the band aid" as some may say, I would not be on track to fulfill my goals going into 2016. With that being said, there are many things I would like to achieve in my acting (and producing) career over my lifetime (yes, I said lifetime, this is not a fly by night hobby for me) and going SAG / AFTRA is the only way I can continue on my path. Yes, I am currently without an Agent or Manager, but that is okay by me (for now) because I am looking to surround myself with great people, a "team" that works well together like a well oiled machine. I look forward to the future, leaving behind a great body of work that evolves, changes and grows, that leaves people wanting to see more. I want to tell stories, and make magic on screen. I will be producing my own shorts over the course of the next few years, and moving into feature length films within the next five. As I build my team of creatives, filmmakers, MUA's, set designers, producers, directors, actors, distributors, public relations, location scouts, editors, costume designers...I know that making my projects SAG / AFTRA will benefit everyone working with me. As my studio head at my acting school (where I am the booking officer) said to me the other day; "You want benefits and good working conditions, right? You want to be paid fairly for your talent, right? Well, then join the F'ING UNION!!". So I did.

Got to work with Will Brown and Golden Bio Entertainment once again on another new project! #ThePartysOver is a short murder mystery set at a Hollywood White Party with top industry professionals on a sunny day in California. 

You may remember Will Brown from SEX AT SUNSET which screened in West Hollywood on March 1, 2015 - with Adra Janean cast as Nadia, the aging video vixon who was desperate to stay in the limelight.

FUN FACTOIDS! 

  • ADRA JANEAN is of German, Scottish and French decent (there's a little English in there too). 

  • ADRA is constantly asked if she is Latina, and many people speak Spanish to her asking "Does your mother still live in Mexico?".

  • Depending on her makeup - ADRA also passes for Armenian. On March 17th every year, of course, Adra is Irish (but isn't everybody??).

Fun Factoid! 

Director KARTIKYE GUPTA hand selected all of the wardrobe and jewelry for Marianne (played by yours truly) in film "A FRIEND IN NEED". Choosing a vintage necklace that was once owned by my grandmother Minnie Mae Craig. 

"I find it very rewarding to be able to wear things that mean a lot to me (or once belonged to someone else that I care about) in film and print photography. Without the love and support of family, friends, and fans, I wouldn't be where I am today. Being able to bring stories alive for others to enjoy, makes everything worth it in the end. Never stop creating." - xoxo Adra Janean
