Long time no see…

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

Last time I updated – which was entirely too long ago – I promised some as-yet unreleased material in my next post.  This is sort of a compromise – many of these images have been released, but only in the raw format, not the color-corrected versions.  Trinity is a model I worked with in 2008; from a bit west of Greensboro, she came out to Burlington to shoot with me.  She had a smile that seemed to take up her entire face, and although she was just getting back into modeling from a surgery-induced break, still seemed an old hand at it.

She is also a huge Michigan fan, so any of you out there that are Ohio Buckeye fans might want to close your eyes.  🙂

She’s also a huge Dodgers fan, as I’m sure you’ll see from a few of the images in the gallery below.  So, without too much more of my blather, let’s get right to the images we created!

The last of the really old stuff

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

So far, everything I’ve posted has been really old stuff that’s been available and indexed in my public gallery. Today is no exception, save for being the last of that batch. Yes, there are more shoots I’ve done in this category that may make an appearance later, but those shoots are, in my opinion, not as good. Since I’m trying to showcase my best work, I’m not cluttering it up with not-so-good stuff. Today’s update is from a shoot I did in March 2008 with Emilie.
Emilie was living in the Triad area of North Carolina at the time, but had a great desire to relocate to the left coast.

Emilie was yet another model that was very easy to work with, had all her stuff together, and knew a heck of a lot more about how shoots were supposed to work than I did.  Are you seeing a pattern here yet?  🙂  So since I don’t want to waste your time with blather, I’ll just insert a mini-gallery of her images below.

Catching up slowly

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

Today I’m busily sorting through and post-processing the images from yesterday’s shoot, trying to find the ones that are especially good and make sure they lok the way I want them to look.  I’ve got a lot of images to go through!

The images here are from a shoot I did with Kristen Vanet in April 2008.  Kristen is a former Lady Cat cheerleader and a promotional model based in Charlotte – she was in the Triangle area for a modeling gig so managed to hold her nose long enough to stop by Burlington to shoot with me on her way back home.

She is very much a “country girl” at heart; she’s a huge fan of NASCAR and very large trucks, and just about talked my ear off about how much fun mudding is.

I’m still not entirely sure what mudding involves other than a large dirt field, moderate to heavy rains, large pickup trucks, and a hell of a lot of washing the trucks later, though.  Maybe it’s the Yankee in me just refusing to understand – Fate knows she tried explaining it to me enough different ways and long enough that I ought to!

Fortunately for me, she also appreciates small, fast cars like my SKY – it’s not quite a track car, but it’s pretty close!

Kristen is still active in photographic and promotional modeling, and from everything I hear is insanely busy, working 8 or 9 days a week in and around the Charlotte area.  Thank Fate I was able to catch her when I did!
