03.17.13 | Tattoo Portrait; Chelsea

Model of the Moment 2012

Portraits of Chelsea and her amazing ink! Her back piece still amazes me. We shot with a black backdrop and hard lighting to give a touch of shape and contrast to the image. The purpose of these images are to showcase the artwork.

Chelsea is a hairstylist who has done work for me in the past for other photo shoots. She took some time to be beautiful in front of the camera.

03.03.13 | Glamour Session; Kristina

Model of the Moment 2012

I worked with Kristina a few years ago to capture some amazing fitness images that still get positive comments ’til this day. After taking a break from the modeling, she teamed up with me again for her comeback. She is a very determined model and knows what she wants out of a shoot. Kristina is a wonderful glamour model; tall, beautiful, and committed.

Below are some of the best images from our session together. Dangerous, flirtatious, and sexy is all you need to know.

Shot with a 35mm lens at ISO 400, f-stop f/5, shutter speed 1/200. Keylight lit with a softbox about 45 degrees to the right of the model (left of camera) with reflectors to the left of the model. Soft backlight used on the backdrop.

Kristina 17mm

Shot in a basement with a hard key light through a peg board to create lighting texture. The key light was a single common light bulb hanging left of and level to the camera. The images were shot with a faster ISO (1600) to allow for faster shutter speed in the low light. The grainy rendering and harsh shadows created the mysterious and daring attitude I was going for.

12.02.12 Model of the Moment | Lickity

Meet Lickity. Yes Lickity (Split not shown). Lickity and Split are performing clowns. Think of Lickity as your neighborhood ice cream truck for the adult in us. She’s a seductress who loves sugar and goes around spreading sweets and smiles.

Lickity has a very edible fashion sense. She loves colors, sprinkles and sparkles. As you can see her style is a visual chaos of color, pleasing to the eye.

In her spare time, she bakes all sorts of goodies from cupcakes to cookies and everything in between. She usually doesn’t make it past the icing. She is never without her “Chocolate Milk”. She has a jelly bean to fix anything that ails you. She will tempt you with her sweets.

Lickity has been a good friend of mine for years and as you can see, our photo session was incredibly fun…and messy. Who needs a little sugar in their life?
