Fashion Friday: 3.1 Phillip Lim Pre-Fall 2012

3.1 Phillip Lim Pre-Fall 2012. I wouldn't be a fashion photographer if I didn't have a thing for fashion, but it's unusual for me to post fashion photos that don't have a bit more "photo" to them if you know what I mean. I love how sleek and polished all of the looks are, but all mixed with varying degrees of sporty with a pinch of play. Well done, 3.1. Well done.

Break the Rules to Make the Rules

Photobucket Photobucket
Model: Emmalee with JE Model, MU and Hair by De Linda Artistry, Concept and photo by me

Some people may think these photos are improperly lit, but I say to hell with the rules. I am the artist, and I will make my own. The truth is, when it comes to art, you only learn the rules so that you can properly break them afterwards. This isn't a chem lab.
I was stoked that my makeup artist and model were so on board with the idea even as we looked over our photos at the end of the shoot. I love the way they came out - in my head there's something a little alluringly dark about them. Part two of the shoot is coming soon...Katie and Nikki, if you guys are reading this, don't worry, there are plenty of more normal, lovely headshots of Emmalee that I will be posting and sending to you :)

Preview: Emmalee

Today I had the pleasure of shooting the lovely Emmalee with JE Model. It's hard to believe she is my first JE model since shooting Bryce back in August! Emmalee was a breath of fresh air - extremely easy to work with and overall just a sweet girl. My right hand woman Michelle did the makeup and hair, of course. There were two segments to this shoot. First, some interesting shadow play, and then this more acceptable beauty session. I'm equally excited to show you both. Coming soon to this blog!

Happy New Year!


Happy New Year, kiddos!
I hope you all had a memorable and safe New Year's Eve evening. I know I sure did watching Santogold and Beats Antqiue! It was as awesome as this, plus live belly dancers:
