Vintage Looks with Laura Tipon

Model Laura Tipon asked me to shoot her around the old homes of Nevada City to help compliment her already vintage look. I am really happy with the results.

Milkbath photoshoot

I had a chance to do my first milkbath photoshoot this week with Rosie Petal and Samone Pierce. The shoot location was in a backyard in Folsom. While the temperatures were in the 90’s, the bath water was ice cold, so the models couldn’t stay under water too long.

Rosie shot with the Fujifilm X-T3 and the 56mm lens. Natural light with a 48 inch softbox using 2 layers of diffusion.

Camping with Alex

I had the idea of doing a camp-girl photoshoot at the Inn Town Campground in Nevada City and Alex Jade did an amazing job as the model.

We started the shoot in a RetroRV. Shooting with the Fujifilm X-T3 and natural light.

More with Annaliese Nobile

Teen model, Annaliese asked me to do a photoshoot with her in Nevada City this week. The 3 hour shoot included a visit to the Holbrooke Hotel in Grass Valley before it was closed for renovation. We probably had the very last photoshoot in that hotel before the furniture was sold and the wallpaper removed.

We used natural light in the hotel, so that we would not bother the people running around the hallways purchasing every lamp, chair and bed in the building.

Model Bridget Pelzman

I had a chance today to work with a 16 year old professional model Bridget Pelzman.  For a a teen model, she really has very talented and made for a wonderful shooting experience. A few of my images from the shoot can be found in today's blog update.

The outdoor images were shot with natural light in Folsom. I didn't have access to a flash or reflector, which I think would have really been great to help the eyes pop.
