Here's a behind the scenes look at the shoot I did for the Professional Make Up Artists Conference (P.M.A.C) that my friend and master make-up artist Gwynnis Mosby is having this November. I can't share the final images yet (they are beautiful!) but here's a glimpse at what went on! Thanks to everyone involved (some not pictured) for a great shoot! A big, big, thank you to Gwynnis for choosing me to shoot this for her!

Here's Zoe! It's funny how we had a bunch of mutual friends, but she and I have never worked together. She is an actress and her mom owns / runs East Coast Talent Agency! I enjoy working with them both, and Zoe and I had a wonderful session. She knew exactly what types of looks she was going for, and I enjoyed capturing them. Look for her starring in the upcoming movie "Destiny Road", which is premiering in Atlanta on April 18th!

In 2010, I had a crazy idea of just putting some shoots together in NYC. I was going to be there anyway for one of my best friend's birthdays, so why not make a dream come true, right? I went on ModelMayhem (which was different then!) and I landed some models, a stylist, and a make-up artist and shot them over 2 days. It was tons of fun, and I was free to just shoot.
One of the models I contacted and ended up working with was Giuseppe. I was drawn to his vintage look. He had been modeling and acting a little while, but was starting to get serious about it and wanted different shots. We met at the South Street Seaport and did some classic type shots there, and then wandered down back roads to shoot some more. We really got along, had the same mindsets, and together we captured really cool images showing a lot of different looks. After our shoot, he took me to lunch where we chatted about the differences of Atlanta and NYC among other things. I loved working with him, and his images are still some of my favorites to this day (some snapshots below). I have a large photo from this session in my studio, and all the guys want a shot like his, and all the girls wonder where he lives!
Even though it's been a couple of years, we've stayed friends (thanks Facebook!) and I have seen him do more fashion shows and films, but I was BEYOND EXCITED today when I was flipping channels and saw Justin Timberlake's new video for his song "Mirrors". I bought JT's album and have been enjoying it so I was interested in this video. I stared at the TV for a minute, and sure enough there is Giuseppe in the lead role! I went to Facebook to see if my eyes were deceiving me, and there was the truth that he was in it (the lead young guy in the denim jacket). HOW AMAZING IS THAT! I love seeing my clients accomplish great things and I'm so happy for him! Check out the official video here! It really is touching, and I love how it shows the 2 couples and has a story. Congrats Giuseppe!!!

I worked with Ari earlier this week, and really had a fun time! I enjoyed getting to know him, and also enjoyed shooting for the types of characters he usually get casts for (mob boss, drug dealer, terrorist, bad guy, but also a lawyer & CEO). He moved here just recently (as in a few weeks ago), but is originally from Canada! We had a nice time talking about snow tires and how Atlanta doesn't need them. He can be seen in the upcoming blockbuster "Iron Man 3" with Robert Downey Jr., and plays a terrorist who takes a girl hostage. It's always exciting to see my clients in the movies, so I will definitely be watching!

Kyler made her appointment way in advance, and knew exactly what she wanted! I love when my clients are prepared like that, as it makes the whole process easier. When she arrived, she was so excited and READY! I loved working with her, because she was just so full of energy! It really made everyone around her happy, and the time we spent together just flew by. She did the deluxe package with a make-up artist, which is great for 2 different looks. I'm so excited to see where the future takes her, and am sure we'll be seeing a lot of more of her!

I'm so excited about my first publication of 2013! I just found out my photos of 2 time Grammy winning singer Eshe of Arrested Development were published in Empire Radio magazine! We shot these last year as her new promotional images. I have known Eshe for years & years, and she is someone I really admire for her strength and dedication to her love, which is music. We always have a great time together, and I just love being around her. She is such a genuinely sweet woman. You can check out the digital version here and she is on pages 37-39 (my photo is the main one, and the ones with the multi colored dress and blue background). Way to go Eshe!!!

I recently visited some friends of mine at the Goat Farm Arts Center, where they have a studio. I loved the space, and wanted to do a shoot there as soon as I could! Usually shoots come together very quickly for me, but this was one of the hardest I've ever done with logistics, and at times it seemed like it would never happen. Once the day came though, me, Megan (the model) and Tiffany (the make-up artist) all had a great time and it worked out perfectly. I wanted to do a kind of boho / 70's inspired shoot. Megan brought awesome clothes, and Tiffany and I had great accessories. Megan was a dream to work with, and drove 4 hours from where she goes to college, just to work with us! This was a fairly quick shoot, as we only had the space for 4 hours, but we packed a lot in. This is just a sneak peek for now.

I met Rich through Get Connected in December. He had other shots for his singing telegram company, Southern Stars Atlanta but he needed just a great headshot for his acting. He is more of a character actor, but still needed a smiling and serious shot. He's already done some independent movies, but his old headshot just didn't do him justice. I had a very nice time getting to know him, and know I'll be seeing even more of him now that he does have great headshots!
