Today’s shot features Peter Christian at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California.
During the year, I got to shoot a wide variety of settings, and people, from weddings, engagement shoots, model shoots, and just being out and about. This first one is of Peter Christian. We arranged to shoot at Griffith Park Observatory, only problem, rain. We shot anyway, and got some dramatic shots, THANKS to the rain.
What can I say about Wendy Wilson, other than I am a bit smitten. We met at a wedding I was shooting, and it took almost a year to get together. But when we did…we were able to make beautiful images.
In May, I had the honor of working alongside Tina Chapman in Las Vegas. Jake and Melissa were an extremely fun couple, here they are playing it up.
Creative people are always fun to work with, the collaboration that takes place can create some very interesting results. Frduah Boateng is one such multi-talented creative individual. What’s more, he’s a good friend too.
Another model that took me a year to chase down was Devin Coffin. She is stunningly beautiful, and has a fiery personality to match. When we did get together, we shot at the Millenium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.
In downtown Monrovia, there is a vibrant artist community, that gathers regularly during the summer. Here is a musician on one of those events.
Wendy Wilson I back, this time with a guitar!
While walking to Mirror Lake in Yosemite, I was enthralled at how the light filtering through the trees fell upon my friends walking ahead of me.
I got to shoot with the always fun, always beautiful, Wendy Wilson last Thursday. She knew of this little trail she wanted to show me, as well as show off her guitar. The guitar has a special little story of it’s own. It was originally her fathers, when he was about 13 years old, he painted it with stars and stripes. When Wendy acquired it, she was thinking of striping and repainting it, but found it had way too much character. I have to agree with her, and even told her so.
We shifted gears a little bit for Wendy’s part of the shoot. We concentrated heavily on the ink that she had done, which only enhances her striking presence.
I first met Wendy at a wedding last year, when I approached her to see if she would be willing to model for me, she said, “Absolutely!” So we tried to schedule a shoot before she went on a six month dream vacation to Australia (a dream for me at least) and when she returned, we wasted no time to get her in front of the lens. So, with no further ado, here is Wendy…
Today, we are continuing with the Boudoir Pin-Up Shoot, this time we are switching gears and featuring not just Devin, or Wendy, but also Stephanie. While I was in the middle of shooting Devin and Wendy together, Stephanie decided it might be fun to get in front of the camera. Normally, Stephanie is Devin’s hair stylist, and posing coach. She has an eye for the little details, stray hair, awkward poses, and catching things a photographer may or may not see in the view finder.
What surprised us all, is how naturally she transitioned from one pose to another, like it was not her first time in front of the camera.
During this part of the shoot, it was all play, as you shall see.
