Just wrapped our first day of shooting for Steve Acevedo’s Remember our reggae night in Florida?  You never call me anymore., a short in a series debuting in the 2010 SXSW film festival.  We did a somewhat smokey eye with sultry, red lips for the sparkling Marissa (Zoe Simpson), and simply guilded the dashing visage of Alex (Ignacio Serricchio).  Here are some pics from behind the scenes.  Enjoy!

Fashion Photo Shoot with Model Kirsten

Fashion Photo Shoot with Model Kirsten

We had a shoot with the wonderful Kirsten and acityofindustry a few days back, and she gave us so many photos that we were left sorting through them for loads of time before we chose the two that you see here. We decided on a subtle smokey eye for this photo shoot, and we left the lips bare (nekkid lips!).  Scope out the photo and share your thoughts!

Yo – Want the inside scoop? …Listen up, kid

Graham and I  just did a shoot with the loverly Katherine Douglass – the woman who does not take a bad picture.

With her GORGEOUS cheek bones and piercing eyes, I could not have asked for a more tempting canvas – she looks like Pocahontas and Kiera Knightley all at the same time.  Katherine moved flawlessly and nailed pose after pose, transversing the spectrum from simple, clean Calvin Klein ads to trashy Terry Richardson poses on posts, to a specific pose that reminded me of Alison Mosshart from The Kills.

I Love Alison Mosshart from The Kills.

For her first look, we went au natural, Calvin Klein style.  As the changes went on, things got a little darker, and we smeared the eye-gloss on and painted heavy-rimmed eyes – one of my favorite looks.

Which one’s your favorite?  What other styles/genres would you like to see?  Taking requests for tutorials now, so feel free to hit me up!
