HAIR • HAIR • the theme for November

So this October I have never been so surrounded with so many discussions about hair, movies about hair, interviews with famous hair stylists. It's like hair is following me this month. I can't stop thinking about it. I think November I will need to dedicate some shoots based on "hair".
Let's see what happens.............

Oct 21 • Michael Freeby Shoot

Photographed Michael Freeby today in the studio. It was a crazy day trying to get more wardrobe to make the shoot more editorial. We had wardrobe by Trever Raines. My favorite was his " Meat Shirt" which reminded me of Mark Ryden paintings whom I admire.

Had a great shoot in the studio with Chris from FUSION models and Kevin from FUSION.
Full range of lighting from Mola, natural light, strobed strong single light, gelled light, rim light, hair light.
Played with action shots and men's styling. I think I need a new lens for my H2 Hasselblad. I love my 12Omm and hate my 80mm.

LAINE • Oct 8th • Downtown studio

Photographed the beautiful Laine today. She came over to the studio for a couple hours to shoot a small test. We didn't have a MUA or any other creatives. I decided to do a more RAW look with her at first. We shot with my new backdrop pulley system that was installed yesterday. Actually had a chance to test different lighting.
