This bright young woman was the first catalog model I had the pleasure of working with. I met her during a hiatus from modelling, but we couldn't resist working together. These shots are from our first session, they represent a more expressive and playful side of Heather, a concept that has only recently been introduced to catalog modelling - the stoic expressions and poses that made people look like mannequins has faded and it's more popular now to show the model living life in the products featured. I think it's for the best this way.
Hailey is my favorite model from my beginning days working with models. Bright and happy with a wide range of facial expressions, working with her was less work and more free-form art creation.
These pictures are from a set where we played with 1950's pin-up concepts but adding in details to make the shots more personal. While the poses and makeup is more cheesecake, the jewelry hints at Hailey's personality.
One of the first models I had the pleasure of working with was Tesla Talbot in Ukiah, California. Tesla had a knack for posing which made it very easy for me to focus on composition and lighting. These pictures were from our first session together, and while we had many more, these remain my favorite for their raw beaty.
Tesla can be reached via her Model Mayhem page.
