I was recently a part of a collaboration for VIP Chicago Chicago Brides (http://www.vipchicagobrides.com) in which along with two other fantastic photographers, we were tasked with capturing images of dresses by Borris Powell (http://www.BorrisPowell.com), and Nadia Ivanova (http://www.naiivanova.com) along with accesories by Ryan Dies (http://www.brassologie.com) who also doubled as one of our models.
The entire shoot was produced by Anita Arsova (http://www.AnitaArsova.com) and the creative team consisted of:
Hair + MUA: Anita Arsova (www.anitaarsova.com)
Hair + MUA: Ayman Gammaz
MUA: Maryam Subhani
Some of the images can be seen below with all populated on my Flickr page.
I was recently invited (2nd time) by the Paul Mitchell (School) to again facilitate a photoshoot for their beauty students.
This was a great opportunity to get some shooting in as well as support the students as the foster creativity in a learning environment.
I have a ton of images to go through but I found this one to post meanwhile. Great job guys!!
A friend of mine is reinvesting his wealth of experience in a new venture which seeks to help professional athletes ease back, financially and more, into life after their playing days are over.
We did this shoot in Chicago to get him started on his web presence…
The old adage says that sometimes, the best photographs are those that you didn’t exactly plan out.
I was reminded of this last night when I was packing away my camera for a shoot the next day and I decided to take a quick shot of my wife who was getting ready for bed (washing face, and the routine). She was in her PJs with no make-up so she was not in the mood for any photographs. 🙂 She covered her face in jest and I clicked the shutter. I love what we captured.
She actually wasn’t that mad when she saw the results. So much so that she agreed to take another one (same concept) the next day. While I really like the second one as well (see below), the first still really resonates because of how we shot it.
