toy boats toy boats toy boats

my camera's self timer remote finally arrived two days ago and i can take self portraits again. this was a quick one in my front yard, and a toy boat (try saying that ten time in a row). lots more pictures to come soon, hopefully some manipulations more so than anything! i miss making crazy things with photoshop. in this photo all i did was add the clouds and get rid of some powerlines.

strings attached to you

models: michelle & rosie (just above)
clothing designer: mackenzie mode
headpiece designer: jessica beattie
hair/makeup: leana

last week i had a shoot for the wonderful mackenzie mode. i was so ecstatic to get to photograph for them because i think they're clothes and designs are completely amazing - they're just so quirky and fun. a team of eight of us met up friday morning at centennial park, and over the span of eight hours we managed to shoot both lookbook & editorial styled pictures of more than 50 outfits on three models. this blog post is just a tiny sneak peek on what's to come!

the last vampire, eternal dawn

at the beginning of last year i was commissioned to create a series of three book covers for christopher pike and was completely ecstatic about it. i've blogged the photos of the book covers before but if you can't remember just search for "the last vampire by christopher pike" and the lovely connie will come up :)

after the three book covers, i was asked to create two more with a different character. i found the amazing lexi who i thought was perfect for it (and she was) and we created the above photo for the latest last vampire book. the picture above is my personally-retouched version, and below is the further edited photo for the actual cover according to their specifications. another book is still to come but i can't say what picture is on the cover yet!

it is really great when someone buys one of my photos from my portfolio to be the cover of a novel, but it is even more amazing and fun for me to be given an outline and to need to create an image or a series of images to be the cover of some really awesome books!
