Shot recently with a beautiful model Perrie, and Kat G Davidson as the hair and make up artist.
Here are a few of the shots, shot for beauty. I hope to work with this make up artist a lot this year, and this model again too if an assignment comes up that suits.

Over the semester break I was lucky enough to shoot Kelsey Jean, the beautiful sister of "Beauty and the Geek" Dane. Photographer Michael Embelton leant me this fantastic dress. We wanted to do something different with it than Michael had already done. This shot involved a trampoline, a high powered fan, and the model twisting while jumping and whipping her hair back in a very particular way. It was tricky and the model was fantastic. I like this shot because of the position of the hair, and that her eyes are piercing in it.
Over the semester break I was lucky enough to have access to a great studio, and with one of my most used models, worked on a concept she had wanted to do for sometime. I called the shoot anér-gyné which is where the word androgyny came from, meaning women-man. We shot Demolita in a "fashion" version of neither sex. This shoot was interesting as we never really have trouble with movement, Demolita usually moves well and I need to direct her little. However for this we both had to learn how to make a position look "manly" but not comedic. We then had Simon Bull, our talented hair and make up artist, change Demolita into the opposite, and go very girly. We have shot Demolita as a women before but not ultra girly. We got the pretty dresses out, poofed up hair, and the fan going. I was happy with both results.
