Chicago Fashion Photography: Editorial Photoshoot, The Young Socialites by Photographer John Gress Clothing by Borris Powell, Elizabeth Smith & iamsocialite
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……
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.
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.
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.
