No Bra Day

You may have missed the shout out, Friday October 13th was National No Bra Day!

Ok yes very fun! But actually on this day, millions of women go no bra to promote breast cancer awareness.

From my photo shoot with model Severine. Makeup and hairstyling by the incredible Blanche LeBeau.

Diner Date

Don’t you love it when you get to the Diner and your date is already waiting for you. A somewhat edgy style photo shoot. Thanks!

6 Seconds

Six seconds to get your attention! Does it work? The video from a destined edgy fashion editorial photo shoot with Amber Flowers. Why did I edit the video to six seconds?

My photography is very involved with advertising, editorial features and online content. It is my business. I make an effort to pay attention to trends and such that are related. I just read an interesting story and report in AdAge.  Facebook is working with some of it’s advertisers to develop the concept of specifically six second video ads.

So it seems to me that six second video overall might be interesting. Let me know what you think? Thanks!

 


Trying To Be Social Media Safe

I try to remember in photo shoots to create some Social Media safe work. A lot of my photography goes toward being “edgy editorial” or sometimes called “fashion nude” or “porno chic”, a term used to describe the photography of Helmut Newton, mainstream fashion photographer Mario Testino, and now most recently, the fashion house of Yves Saint Laurent . So here I asked Kajira to keep things covered up. It kind of worked.


Alt Photo Media

I forgot how much I enjoy alternate photography media such as instant films. My buddy, model, Noel VanBrocklin in a behind the scenes photo using a Fujifilm Instax Camera. I am also really liking doing short video clips both behind the scenes and as a feature along with the photography. Great fun and I love the look!

The actual photo shoot was done with Broncolor lighting and a Hasselblad digital camera system. This photo with a Fujifilm Instax wide camera. But I also use Polaroid cameras with film from the Impossible Project. I shoot my video clips with Fujifilm X Series cameras. Thanks!

Long Skirting The Issue

More behind the scenes posing fun with Kajira. We have more videos that you will only be seeing here and not on social media. Somewhat revealing. Think chic. “Porno Chic”…

A term created by New York Times art critic Hilton Kramer in the 1970s to describe the work of fashion photographers Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin and Chris von Wangenheim. Editorial and advertising photography that uses nudity, eroticism… sexual and sultry to be more than pornography. I also refer to it as “edgy lifestyle” and think it is great fun. That is why you see it in my photography. It is not just being naked.

Video on my Fujifilm X-Series X-T1. The strobes firing are Broncolor. The actual photo shoot on Hasselblad digital. Always the best! Thanks!


Red Posing Fun

Some fun with Kajira posing with background sounds by Broncolor strobes. Love having her in front of the camera! The actual photo shoot done with Hasselblad digital. Behind the scenes video with a Fujifilm X-T1 camera.
