Shooting

From the Tree Line

Jeans and a t-shirt is one of my favorite attires to see a lady in. It's one of the most basic outfits you can wear and still look fly as hell. If your into high-fashion, then jeans and a t-shirt can make a great base to start with, and if your into staying low key, it works well as a finishing line too. Most modeling agencies also photograph their models in this same attire, with little to no make-up so the client knows what to expect before a model even walks through the door.

Ms. Hudson graced me with her presents within the tree line, days before she left Atlanta, GA to finish school in Miami, FL. Fortunately we were able to work together and accomplish some beautiful work, this imagery spread being one of them. Hurry back Ms. Hudson!

Published in The Definition Magazine

I've never been an eye-candy style photographer. There's nothing wrong with it if you are but I'm not. The opportunity came to do a shoot with Brandee Cobb who will gladly tell you "I'm not a model," but really wanted to shoot in the attire. Funny girl. I agreed to the shoot and wanted to make it sexy but not raunchy. I wanted to be proud of my creation and give her what she was looking for. The shoot was a success by it self, but we I also able to get the images published in The Definition Magazine.

Published images in Flawless Magazine

WOW! My work was recently published in Flawless Magazine which is an International Fashion magazine known for their high-end fashion spreads and amazing beauty photography. It's such an honor to be published along side these great photographers and models. This isn't my first publication with model Katherine Del Rosario and I don't believe it will be our last. With a wide assortment of eclectic imagery, we stand a chance for even more spread such as this one! I love conquering new territory, and continuing to elevate as I do so. I had a great team with me on the day we shot this spread and their hard work paid off. Great job all.

Sold!

Within hours of meeting actress and model Candace Harris we had our first shoot together. Within days of our first shoot, a well known local Atlanta Company Based Company offered to purchase the photograph we created to use in their year long campaign. We are pretty excited to have such a beautiful accomplishment and blessing. I will not spill all the beans just yet on who they are but don't be surprised if you see it, I will be sure to keep you in the loop. Created with Make-Up Artist Allen Jones.

KISS (Keep It Simple)

It was a last minute shoot that left a lasting impression. Auriana came ready and in no time we were done. Our goal was simple...lets keep it.....simple. She still had a full night ahead of her so I had to pull it all together in less than a hours notice. Fortunately we were on the same page and made everything work out for the best!

Book Smart

The process isn't short, but it's so worth it. I love photo shoots from beginning to end. Well that just it, just because I have placed the camera down doesn't mean I'm done. There is so much more work that goes on behind the scenes, and post production work that need to happen. For this shoot in particular there were so many moving parts and people involved. Those people involved helped to make the final product of this book beautiful and a success.

Choo Choo Trains....as promised!

A couple weeks ago I said I would post the images of the trains I shot with my Mamiya RZ67 so here they are. I was very pleased with the quality of the images that the camera helped to produce. I shot in B&W film and I love the final results. I'm thinking the majority of my film images will be in B&W, but time will tell.

Palate Exchange

Sometimes you just need to order something different off the menu. If you order the same sandwich every time you visit your favorite eatery, you aren't having a different experience or enjoying other options that are available to you. I was in need of something different for Jesselah Harris-McGrath. She is a beautiful lady that can kill a bass guitar, a set of heels and stun you with a smile, but I already knew that. I wanted to take her out of her own comfort zone and capture her unlike she has ever experienced before. I gave her nothing...no props, no makeup artist, no sexy location...nothing. Jesselah doesn't fail.

Just A Dash of Color

Not to long ago I informed my friend Toronda "where shooting today," and that's what happen. Sometimes you just gotta show em who's boss. All jokes aside, I had a couple great ideas for a shoot and she loved them. So the journey began. I needed to get her make-up done so over to the M.A.C. store at Lenox Mall in Buckhead we went and met up with Make-Up Artist AJ. She not only did a great job but is an amazing person, down to earth and listen to my needs for the shoot. (Connect with here on Instagram @ayejeezytk.) I even took some time to find some nice color combinations while AJ was handling some other things. I'm no make-up artist but I know a thing or two about colors I like. Make-up, lights and poses. We made it happen.
