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! Photography for actors and models.
We had an amazing amount of fun with this Marie Antoinette inspired shoot for HC Style Magazine. The dresses were provided by Amanda Ritchie Bridal and Beauty and also K&B Bridal both in Harford County. Hair by Lisa Jones-Butz of Subtle Rebellion salon + gallery and makeup by Gina Bateman. These were done a few months ago…but I needed to add them to my website. This fashion editorial was shot in Harford County Maryland. Fashion photography for HC Style Magazine.
We had a great time doing this fashion editorial on a very hot, humid day in June. Luckily all involved were good sports, particularly the beautiful Rebecca. The Mt. Felix Vineyard has a gorgeous female mastiff as it’s mascot and she had just had puppies a few weeks before. As we were finishing up our shoot one of the puppies came to visit. Obviously we all thought this was adorable and Rebecca started to pose with the little guy. The pup had other ideas, no interest in being a model and a very specific interest in her socks. I snapped these adorable out-takes as he very impolitely stole the socks right off her feet!
I can’t show you the finished images since they have not yet been published in HC Style magazine. However I really wanted to show you these funny shots that in the old days would have just been displayed in my darkroom for my own amusement. These posts are a great way to share! Fashion editorial photography is my absolutely favorite thing to do and I want to thank the models Rebecca and Ting Ting along with stylists Caitlyn Meyer and Lisa Jones-Butz.
