Themed Shoots are pre-planed, stylized photo shoots. Some examples of these are body paint, halloween/scary/haunted house, avant-garde, steampunk, etc.
These shoots often take some planing with wardrobe, location, makeup, and hairstyling,
As part of my continuing education I attend a yearly photography conference and collaborate with hair artists, makeup artists, and mentors for two themed all-day shoots.
These kids got their own wardrobe together and did their own makeup for this fun halloween inspired shoot.
My client came to me with an idea for a collaborative project he wanted to do called "The Power of Androgyny." He came ready in the clothes, hair, and makeup he needed for the photo shoot.
The models for this shoot loved the movie Crimson Peak and wanted to dress up as the characters. They used their own wardrobe and did their own makeup.
This was another huge collaborative shoot at the Palmer House Hotel. I love working on and making composite photography.
Yes, that is body paint! I am fortunate to know a very talented body painter that paints works of art on the body.
