Excited to share some new black & white studio work with a moody vibe.
Model: Ashley Owens, Nashville TN
I loved getting to work with stylist and writer, Kerri Bunn, on the June 2015 Men’s Fashion issue of Birmingham Magazine. Kerri and I have worked together before on editorial stories and it’s always a pleasure!
Because this story was about men’s beard grooming, I didn’t want the images to be about the clothes, or eye color, or hair color, but more about the styling and texture of the beards. So, I decided to edit the images as warm tone black and whites.
This was such a fun shoot because the guy models really bought into our vision. We wanted them to play to the camera with their personalities and that’s exactly what they did. We laughed a lot.
It was such a fun surprise that two of the images made it on the cover!
My sister in law has been talking to me about setting up a time to do studio style black and white shots of my niece and nephew. Last Thursday I got a frantic text from her… “Wiggly tooth! Have to act fast!” So, Friday afternoon I whipped up a studio set in my garage for a quick session. I love what we got! There’s nothing quite like the light coming in from an open door and those big catchlights!
