I met up with Magicc Imagery in what felt like the middle of nowhere, but it turned out to be an amazing community that, from what I gathered lived off the land in a kind of commune. And the guy that runs the place makes amazing art pieces and builds entire structures by hand. The place had soooooo many amazing places to shoot. He gave us a tour and told me to pick places to shoot and I was overwhelmed by the beauty of it. It was virtually impossible for me to pick, there was just so many great places!!
I finally picked, and I think we managed to do 5 or 6 settings, and we even had a kitty follow us around for part of it. 🙂
I had SO MUCH FUN! I simply cannot wait to get back up there, and I hope we have more time to shoot so we can take more advantage of the amazing location.
Workshop with Billy Monday
I got the opportunity to work with Billy Monday again, and this time with the amazing model castella/Mary Celeste, even though we didn’t really get the opportunity to pose together very much. It was an iPhone/android workshop, so it was really interesting. While Billy was running around giving pointers and tips on how to combat the issues that most people have to deal with with cell phone cameras, Mary and I got to work with 13th Floor Photo (who shot the photo above), Joe Yeti Photos, Lux Studios, and my fiance, Pissed Off Pistol Photography got to shoot, too.
We all had a really great time and got some beautiful photos out of it, too.
I haven’t seen the photos from this shoot, but I really really want to. I was giggling throught this entire shoot and had too much fun. 😛 Holmhurst Photography shot me for a film project where models take random objects and use them as though they are other things. So at one point I was a kind of secret agent holding a drill as a gun and wearing my fluffy unicorn slippers. 😛 And another time I was in a crib using it as a boat, and using a rake as an oar. It was hilarious!
I hope I get to see the photos eventually. I know they must look great.
Sarah Beth Faison
Shooting with Sarah was an absolute blast! And we got soooo many great photos out of it! I can’t even pick my top 10 favorites from it. She’s just so talented.
We first shot a set in a beautiful white dress back in this overgrown bushy area, that was a very different look for me, but it looked beautiful. Then we shot with me in a purple leotard by the purple barn shown above, and then switched into the black one. While we were in the black one, a cop car drove up! Apparently they had seen her car there multiple times before and were just curious what she was doing, lol. They were super curious and were even munching on some pizza they had sitting in the box balancing on the dashboard. 😛
After we said goodbye to them we went a little further into the woods and found a creek so I changed into my bathing suit and we shot a set with me on this huge rock in the middle of the creek. It was a beautiful day, but walking through the water to get to the rock was stressful, lol. There were so many crawdads! I didn’t want to step on any of them. 😛
Then we went back to her house and shot a simple set in her kitchen on a blank wall, and completed our awesome day of shooting in her front yard, using a beautiful tree that had just bloomed light pink flowers. 🙂
Check out the awesome Zivity sets that we’ve got up! And don’t forget to vote on them. ❤
Some photos from the set “Lucky Ones” was also featured in the October edition of Editorial Magazine! Purchase a copy of that here.
My shoot with Deep Digital was a blast. It was so laid back and fun. And it was the start of an awesome friendship. I don’t even remember what all that we shot, but I remember having a TON of fun during it. I highly recommend working with him.
And he took my favorite hair-flip photo of all time!
Roco Imagez took me to Fort Washington, which I didn’t even know existed, and we had a great time exploring the place. He knew of a section of it that was really hidden and only really visited by deer (which we scared off), so it was no problem for me to frolic around naked for a couple of hours. There were so many great opportunities to shoot and we immediately started creating wonderful images. The texture of the fort contrasting against my pale and smooth skin looks so beautiful, I think, and there were all of these hidden places we got to explore. Even though I held my composure for the pictures, when he wasn’t snapping shots I was smiling the entire time. 🙂
