These past few weeks have been nuts in mostly a positive way. However, I have been remiss again in keeping my blog up to date. So, I wanted to share some great new faces (and a few recognizable old schoolers) that I have seen of late. It has been a mix of agency and Instagram finds. So, I decided to not list the agency of the model. And, let you, the viewer, decide who might be an agency model versus an Instagram model that everyone thinks is fun to make fun of or put down. We all start from some place. But,for my taste, just show up with a great skin, decent body and a great personality (agency or not). I love shooting portraits, clothed or unclothed/fashion or no fashion . . . just be nice.
One of my latest and most unlikely assignments of late has been working for a fantastic new magazine called World Bride Magazine. Yes, a bridal magazine. When one thinks of bridal, you never think of men. But, this magazine is ushering in a new way of looking at holy matrimony. It has been refreshing for me as a photographer to illustrate my brand of photography with bridal fashion.
Here are a couple of outtakes from our current issue for the Summer/Fall issue. We shot Ukrainian model Konstantin Vasiliev (Adam Models/Daman Management) out at the Marinepark Salt Marsh (one of the best locations EVER by the way); Styled by Fashion Editor Carlton J. Jones. The magazine’s approach isn’t ONLY focused on the wedding day itself. But, also, an adult/fresh take on evening wear that one might wear out to celebrate the engagement with mates; anniversary celebrations; or, what one might wear to propose.
