I’ve had an eye on my neighbor’s magically overgrown backyard as a potential shoot location, it’s full of nasturtium, blackberry brambles, and trees in desperate need of a good pruning. Model and artist Valentine is one of the most adventurous models I know, and she didn’t hesitate once to crawl through all kinds of overgrowth for our time together. The flowers are from Mille Fiori, a small flower stand on Piedmont Ave in Oakland which has some of the best prices on quality blooms in Oakland. Our concept for this session was a gothy alternative bridal summer look.
You can check out Valentine on her Instagram (Heads up, some of her other work is a little less clothed than this session! ) or reach her via twitter if you’re interested in booking.
Happy Halloween! One of my favorite holidays. Costumes, candy, little kids having fun, and all the witches come out during golden hour.
The gorgeous and talented Laika Fox jumped in front of the camera for a session in Mountain View Cemetery.
Had a quick but productive session in the park with this new model, she’s terrific to work with and we’ll be shooting again soon.
Preview of a recent shoot.
Quinn is building up his portfolio to get more work, he’s terrific to shoot, takes direction well, and has a pretty unique look.
What do you think? I could see him on a runway.
Over the weekend I did several shoots, here’s a teaser from one with Ms. Honey Penny, a burlesque performer, seamstress, and all around lovely person.
