In the News - Allie Crandell

I was reading the Huffington Post and came across this article on MTV's Allie Crandell. It said Revolve Clothing had removed her from their website over online customers' concerns she was too skinny (photos in the link to Huffington Post below). Now, I photographed Allie a couple of years ago for the cover of National Jeweler's Magazine (also below). I am a big fan of Allie's. She was awesome on set and just a very cool young women. I haven't seen for a couple years, and I remember her being on the skinny side, but full of energy and eating heartily on set. Part of the difficulty I think, which NO ONE TALKS ABOUT, is with models that are not really really tall, they try to stay a touch skinnier so they look taller in photos. Allie is tall, but not for a model.

Heartloom SS 2011 Preview

Here is part one of a new story I am really excited about as it is a little different look for me. Shot on location with a 70's style. Very cool models; Ania Kedzior from Q and Brittany Hollis from Trump. I will try to post part two this week. I am still editing through it.











Shot with a Canon 5D Mark II with mostly an 85mm 1.2 lens. Too many lighting setups to mention here, though most have a strong component of natural light. Special thanks to my assistant, Spencer Kohn, for all his help on the shoot.

Here are 2 links to the last shoot with Heartloom for Spring Summer 2010 with Daniela Mirzac from Marilyn and Britni Stanwood from MC2..
