Updated Chicago Fashion Photographer Portfolio

Chicago Fashion Photographer: I’m always taking a second look at my portfolio and wondering how I can make it better. Sometimes it’s new images and sometimes its updating the look of existing images. When I revamped my fashion portfolio last week, I did a little of both! Here is a taste of the new look……

New 5D3 RAW Fashion Music Video

I had the amazing pleasure of working with my friend and neighbor Akin Girav to produce a fashion music video last week. Collaborating with another photographer was a great experience. We found we saw images with the same eye and we were both able to freely adapt on the fly as we discovered new ideas and built upon each others contributions to create a great finished product.

Color Match

Australian master hair stylist Vic Picolotto of Tracey Hughes Education, asked me to work with him to create these colorful portraits. Hair, make-up, styling and the background all came together to create these themed images.

Monochrome Models

Before the repatriation of my friend Vic Picolotto to his native Australia, to work for hairdressing giant Tracey Hughes Education, we decided to get in a few headshot shoots while we still could!

I decided to use a variety of hard light sources to sculpt the light for these portraits. However most of the hair is light from above and behind with a softbox.

Making hair styles pop for the America's Beauty Show

Last month I worked with hair stylist Vic Picolotto to shoot a series of images featuring hair designs to be showcased at the America’s Beauty Show for hairdressing giant Tracey Hughes Education. Their clothing was designed by Australian Project Runway winner Anthony Capon.
