I recently shot an exclusive story entitled “All Earth Was Once Sky” for Ben Trovato, which happens to be one of my favorite blogs right now. Ben Trovato, curated by Norwegian Editor in Chief Marius Troy, is constantly streaming inspiring work from the most up-and-coming fashion photogs, so imagine my excitement at being brought into their ranks. It truly is an honor.
Below are some of the shots from the story. These are some of my favorites yet, so I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do.
And please do check out Ben Trovato for the entire story and interview. Everything just looks so much prettier over there. ^_^
Recently, I’ve been working on getting a small portfolio book printed up. It’s been a chore trying to create a well-rounded representation of what I’ve been up to this year. I’ve never done any studio work and I wanted my book to showcase some examples of lighted photography. So after a few phone calls, I had gear, a space to shoot in, and a couple of friends to take pictures of. My brother James kindly helped out as my assistant. Our friend Amanda was there as moral support.
In retrospect, I suppose it was kind of a momentous evening in my evolution as a photographer. Lighting felt very obtuse to me at the beginning of the night, but towards the end of the shoot, I was starting to begin to maybe have the slightest clue of what I was doing. I’m looking forward to having another go at things soon. ^_^
