When I was in California, I got the chance to work with the amazing Evan Hayden. If you haven’t seen his work before you should definitely check it out. He does amazing illustrated photography. I first learned of Evan through a model/friend of mine, Raven Le Faye, after he published the image Lady Galaxy from one of their shoots. Ever since I saw that, which lead me to look through the rest of his work, I had been dying to work with him. So as soon as I got the dates worked out for my California trip I immediately contacted him.
Once we worked out a date I was super excited, even before he told me about his idea for the shoot. Once he told me about his idea, I was ecstatic.
This shoot was sooooo much fun to shoot. Evan and my boyfriend held these two spools of ribbon while I spun around and around (and around and around and around and around…….) until we decided I was sufficiently mummified in blue ribbon, they helped me onto the ground and I tried to get out of the ribbon while still looking good for the camera, which was impossible with all of the ribbon. So, what you don’t see in the images is that we had to use scissors to cut it away in between shots.
I absolutely love how this set came out, and think it was the perfect entry for me into Zivity’s Holiday Contest.
I also thought it was the perfect set for my first blog entry of my new site. 🙂
And Evan made the totally awesome image with the title on it.
