Lily Trotters bad-ass and beautiful compression socks! What a fun project. I was asked to shoot a mix of images for their website and lookbook. I was able to book some of my favorite models and shoot at a great location. There is nothing better for me than being able to shoot commercial images with a fashion feel.
Fashion Photography gives me the opportunity to work with models, makeup/hair people and stylists. Sometimes we are shooting for a magazine and sometimes it’s for a model’s portfolio/zed card. No matter what the reason, I love being able to be creative!
I have been commissioned by banks and other businesses to do landscape fine art photographs for use in their offices or stores. Clients and customers enjoy seeing images of places they pass everyday hanging on the walls.
Just a few of my favorites done in places like Ocean City Maryland and Colorado.
Fashion photography is clearly my favorite thing to do. At Harford Style Magazine, we decided to dedicate one issue each year to Brides and all things wedding related. Bridal and wedding images are so much fun since you can create very dreamy and romantic settings and it’s hard not to love a photo that features a gorgeous gown on a beautiful model.

Photographing gorgeous jewelry with a beautiful model for website and catalog images is a good day for a photographer. I was lucky enough to connect with String of Jewels and wonderful company run by a creative and sweet women named Traci Cormell. Website and catalog images.
This lovely young lady was a good enough sport to allow my makeup artist to do a “BEFORE” photo of her. I wanted to photograph her because I loved her long red hair and perfect pale skin with freckles. This is proof that my team can transform someone with our beauty photography and makeover sessions.
These shoots are great to do just as a treat to yourself or as a gift to a loved one. They can be as simple or dramatic as you want!
Harford Style Magazine Winter Cover Shoot with Heather Ziehl. Heather is a Harford County resident and Mrs. Maryland 2013. Read all about her in the January issue available at WaWa stores and ShopRite stores in Harford County Maryland. View a short video from our cover shoot below!
Lighting is the most important things when it comes to beauty photography for models. A photographer has to learn to light in such a way that does not cause unflattering shadows on the model’s face. A beauty shot may look easy but it’s truly a situation where you can spot a novice photographer vs an experienced one. At this shoot, I worked with an amazing hair/makeup team which helps make a great photo amazing! Not everyone will like this crazy lighting but I love these images.
Thanks Gina Bateman, Sarah Jackson and the lovely Allyson from L&M Modeling and Talent.
Finally the new issue of Harford County Style Magazine is on the shelves! I shot the editorial fashion photography pages this time at a great location…Brian Bunce Barbers. Originally I wanted to add a bit of 1940’s graphics to the images but found it was a bit too busy to the eye. So, the actual magazine pages look a little different than this, but I loved the graphics and wanted to share those in my post.
Autumn is my favorite time to do photography for modeling composite cards. Photography for actors and models is very different than portrait work and allows for a lot of creativity. I had a wonderful time working with model Ally from L&M modeling and talent. About 2 years ago I shot the images for her first modeling composite card and what a difference!
