Not everyone is comfortable in their own skin but model Alexis is. She is a serious trooper too. The waters of the Chattahoochee River are between 30-40 degrees year round, but you couldn't tell be looking at her. She is serious about her craft and loves the challenges I bring her way. These are some of the images from our session that day but I decided to split the images among another magazine there were just to many believe images to give to just one. These were published in Arsenic Magazine.
I wanted to step outside of my normal captures and have the makeup artist I was working with do something a little crazy. I love the textures and color that he produced with the makeup. Our model had never done anything like this before so she was really excited to she what was going to be created. When the makeup was completed and she opened her eyes she was even more excited that she agreed to be apart of the session. What she didn't see coming was the publication in Rebelioious Magazine.
We took it to the dark side, with a patch of yellow. There is always a bit of excitement to see your hard work in publication, but even more exciting when it's the first time you meet the model and designer. A great team effort resulted in another publication in Flawless Magazine. Courtney Thomas and Kash Kouture came over, then we tossed around a couple ideas and Allen started to create the vision. With her antithetically designed make-up and hair, Courtney rocked a custom made piece from Kash Kouture and allowed her posing to fit the scene. I love to take a model out of their element, some make it happen, and others don't. Well Ms. Thomas was a win!
3 models in 1 magazine! Love it. I was very grateful to get 3 wonderful models in this months issue of Yes Yes Magazine. Ida Wolda (IG: @niniida), Tory Banks (IG: @__tdene) and Recquel Mack (IG: @onefocusedmodel). I had three very different shoots with these models over the past couple of months and it was well worth our time. They each have different styles and taste for modeling. I'm happy I was able to capture them and collectively create beautiful imagery. I look forward to working with these and other talented models in the near future so we too can land on a newsstands in your neighborhood. The Make-up Artist that helped to make this possible were De'keria Olriedge and Allen Jones.
