The Outstanding Kyle Goldie Wednesday, Jul 21 2010 

If you know me well, you will know I oft times lament about the lack of really strong photographers here in Portland. Now, Portland has a lot of photographers. It has a lot of good photographers. It has a handful of great photographers but that handful is small and I’ve shot with most of them. I was really excited to get a chance to work with Mr. Kyle Goldie.

Kyle is a young newer photographer but his work is simply outstanding. I have watched his work for the last few years and have waited, not so patiently sometimes, for my chance to work with him. His images are stellar and very very strong. 🙂 A model by the name of Lola contacted me via referral from Kyle to do hair and makeup for a shoot they were doing. I jumped at it. It meant loading up at dawn thirty to go to Seattle but I was excited!!! 🙂

Here are some images…

I’m looking toward working with him on future projects. My book would definitely love some Kyle Goldie beauty shots! And Fitness! And Men… and swimsuit… and beach. 😉

Glamorous model and makeup Wednesday, Jun 2 2010 

I finally got some images from a shoot I did a few months ago. I was excited to work with photographer Dustin Rowley and one of my favorite models, Morayma. We had styling done by the owner of the Gilded Closet and there was a hair stylist there which I always appreciate. 🙂

I had fun with this shoot as I got to play and do a little bit more glamorous makeup.   I tend to only get to do beauty makeup so I always appreciate the chance to stretch myself and do something new or different.

Here are a few shots…

A few of these will be used in a charity event for Wyden and Kennedy in July. I’m pretty excited to be featured in that!

A 2nd shoot – more beauty – was just done and images are forthcoming!!!!

Introducing Portland designer Claire La Faye Wednesday, Apr 14 2010 

I was browsing the net a few weeks ago, looking for a designer’s clothes to use that have NOT been used a hundred times over already. I wanted something new… something fresh… something inspired. I love Sarah Seven and her designs but pretty much every makeup artist and photographer has shot her dresses. I didn’t want to be part of the masses.

I saw some of Claire La Faye’s designs and I just had to smile. It was everything I was hoping to find. Her stuff is creative, beautiful, and unique.

I immediately looked her up and found she was a recent transplant from CA and so I wrote her and asked to borrow some of her clothes for an upcoming shoot. Claire was very open and soon I had a photographer and some beautiful models, an amazing hair stylist, and an outstanding wardrobe stylist. It was to be perfect! 🙂 Makeup by me, of course! 😉

Here are a few images from the shoot…

More pictures to follow with beautiful model Sarah Shroeder. 🙂

Orange tile and fox fur Thursday, Apr 8 2010 

Here are the remaining looks from my shoot with Brandon Witzel. Miss Megan who is now modeling all over China was a really good sport for this last location as it was a covert little public restroom. I walked in and was afraid to touch anything and here was Megan leaning back against the walls, sitting on the floor, etc. Modeling is a hard job!!! 🙂

Special thanks to Kira Pinski for her outstanding hair styling and for supplying the fox fur! It added a certain crazy element and it made me smile!

Beauty En Pointe Sunday, Mar 28 2010 

There is a model in Portland that I have wanted to work with for a few years now. Her name is Megan and rumor had it that Mode International was shipping her off to China for fashion week and she would be gone a big chunk of time. I conversed with some creative peeps and we set up a shoot with her and photographer Brandon Witzel. I have been admiring his work and the softer feel of his images and thought he would be perfect for this shoot with Miss Megan.

He agreed and so amazing hair stylist Kira Pinski and I started dreaming up a shoot concept. We really wanted something to do with ballet so Megan got her pointe shoes, Kira rented a studio, and Megan got a designer dress from Sarah Seven and we were off.

Here are a few of the best images from the studio…

I went for a really simple beauty look. Soft and clean. I wanted her face to blend in and accent the rest of the scene, not dominate the shot.

The next look was more edgy and will be showcased later… 🙂 I love working with a great team!!!!

Kyle Goldie, Bronze Body Paint, and a day to remember… Friday, Mar 5 2010 

I went up to Seattle a few weeks ago to work with photographer Kyle Goldie.  I had only been bugging him to work together for 6+ months and I was excited to finally have the opportunity to make it happen.  🙂

Kyle decided on doing a body shoot so we picked a model, I purchased a bunch of bronze body paint, we loaded up and trekked North for a day of fun and photos.  The body paint was a Mehron product and was better than the Kryolan I had purchased a few days earlier.  It was thicker but it also dried faster.  The benefits is that is takes less time and you don’t have to do layers.  The bad part is that it dries fast and can get streaky and its really hard to do a 2nd layer as the first layer lifts off.

We had a few surprises and setback but I think we got a couple of good shots…

I made the cover of a book!!! Sunday, Dec 27 2009 

Today was a lovely day. I log on to find a posting by a photographer friend of mine, Pete Springer, who had posted some great news. He had been chosen to be part of a collaboration in a book on Professional Commercial Photography. Not only was there an editorial on him, but many of his images were chosen, including 3 of mine. 🙂

What I found even more exciting is that one of our images from one of my favorite shoots was featured on the cover. See link!

There were some amazing images from this shoot. This is also where I met the amazing hair stylist Kira Pinski, and lovely clothing designer Holly Stalder.

Another Editorial… yay! :) Saturday, Dec 12 2009 

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Jaime Ibarra, a fantastic photographer here in Portland, OR a while back. It was just a fun creative shoot or so I thought. He wrote me a month or so later letting me know that one of our images was chosen by Prime Magazine in China.

Jaime was chosen to be the subject of an editorial spread and they featured 10 of his images. Luckily, one of our collaborations made the cut. I was so excited! Another tear for me and an international one to boot! Yay! 🙂

Here is the image and layout….

We did a follow up project a month or so later. It was a clothing shoot for an Afghanistan clothing company. Kind of random how we ended up shooting it but I’m really excited to see the edited versions of Jaime’s masterpieces.

Carl Evans and Kira Pinski… an amazing team to work with! Sunday, Dec 6 2009 

I recently did a shoot with the most amazing team.  Carl Evans, an amazing local photographer,  and Kira Pinski, a very talented local hair stylist. I wasn’t really clear on the concept when I got there but as the day started, I was astounded at how things just feel together. Rio Wrenn brought her incredible clothing creations, Kira produced her beautiful wigs, and added with the styling of Rebecca Westby and beautiful models and me, we had a truly out of this world day.

Below are just a few of the images I have received so far…

I’m so excited to see what other incredible and breath taking images Carl has to produce. Kira’s work on the hair pieces was outstanding and I’m so proud of our team! 🙂

Ripped off again… Monday, Nov 23 2009 

The last few weeks have been an induction into the world of stolen images.

First of all, I was tipped off that some makeup artist had posted 4 of my images on his model mayhem profile, claiming credit for the makeup. Funny thing was, they were images I had had up for years prior to my web site redesign. I went to his page and commented on each picture and then reported each image to the MM moderators. The photographers I worked with all reported him as well. Ultimately, model mayhem deleted his profile. I was still stunned that 4 of 7 images were my work and that he was getting jobs from them.

The part I find most humorous is that they weren’t even my best work. My thoughts are if you are going to steal images, at least steal the good ones. 🙂

Then last week I received an email from a model letting me know that images from a shoot we did in Feb were in an Australian online magazine… used without the photographers permission and edited horribly. They were truly awful. I wasn’t sure I should laugh or cry and was actually grateful that I didn’t have a makeup credit.

The front cover is from our shoot as well as the back cover. Note the added bows… such a nice touch. 😉
