How it all began

 Shades of Elvis' is a tribute book that was the brain child of Christopher Ameruoso. 

Back in the early 90's Christopher could be seen daily wearing his 5 dollar replica Elvis sunglasses. Christopher is well known for his photographs of celebrities and his unique talent of creating themed shoots.

 Celebrities and their pets has become Mr. Ameruoso's child. With two successful  books published of celebrities with their pets Ameruoso wanted to pursue a long time dream of honoring Elvis Presley with a tribute book. "Through my years of photographing celebrities no matter what, on just about every shoot Elvis's name would come up" Taking note of that Christopher knew that he had to make this dream a reality. 

Christopher and Priscilla became friends in late 2011 after a photo shoot that Christopher did with Priscilla for his longtime running 'Stars & Pets' page. That is when everything started with 'Shades of Elvis' Along side of Priscilla Presley Christopher & Priscilla created 'Shades of Elvis ' 

 This book is unique to fact that it is only available to purchase online. The book is constantly updated with new talents photographed wearing Elvis's shades. 

Each new talent is added into the book and uploaded. Now that person is featured in this special tribute. 

We decided from the start of this project that we did not want to have this book in the few book stores that still are hanging on. Book publishers really don't care about the integrity of books they release and within months you will see your book on a sale rack. 

Having Shades of Elvis exclusively online makes this book very special.
