Two weeks ago I shot for the Girls of Absfuel Calendar. Absfuel holds a contest on Facebook where each month girls submit their photos for consideration. At the end of the month one girl wins a contract with Absfuel and is flown to the Fontainebleau Miami Beach has a photo shoot for the Absfuel calendar. The first 3 winners came down and we had an amazing day shooting them. The shots that made the cut for the calendar are top secret but this is one of my favorite out takes from the shoot. I hope model Ashley Brooke (who is meeting with a few agencies down here soon) likes the shot as much as I do!
In the last 5 days I’ve photographed, jewelry, shoes, an actress, a model, and an opera singer. There was no weekend for me. There wasn’t even time to think about it. Somehow, I managed to get the retouching finished as well on all but the Opera Singer (but we shot her yesterday so I feel like that is okay). Tomorrow I have two shoots booked, then two more on Friday. When it rains it pours doesn’t it? And since today is raining, and the shoots scheduled for today postponed, I will send this blog post out, cook something tasty that will take all day, and eat it with my friends tonight. Opening a window for Pintrest now, and enjoy the new wallpaper (it’s Ecaterina Andreev, the beautiful model I photographed on Sunday, she is signed with Elite Miami but heading to Milan very soon).
Although shooting on a Sunday afternoon with impending storms approaching is not usually my first choice, it turned out well last weekend. I let our subject (this time she’s a 14 year old girl) send me images that inspired her so we could match what she wants with my style. We came out with some incredibly different images. From a tribute to Herb Ritz on the beach to an Anthropologie catalog it’s hard to believe these photos were shot within 1.5 hours of each other.
More to come! Check back, as there was also a quick shoot in the studio before we left and another 2 location looks.
While checking out myself on Google this morning (don’t lie, you do it too) I came across this,
Who knew! I guess America’s Next Top Model liked Gina and I’s photoshoot at Little Palm Island, they’ve got the whole shoot up on the website. See all the fun things you find when you’ve got an hour before your first photoshoot!
