Model Alison Burnett

I photographed my friend Alison Burnett today. Hot! She is just naturally beautiful. I should have tweeted some but we were so busy shooting that I figured I would just post some on the blog. These have like no editing as we just finished shooting like 15 minutes ago and picked a few shots we both liked. We skipped whole looks, so who knows what else is in here. And yes, we shot all these photos and styles in few hours. You can follow her on twitter @AliBurnett











She looks crazy here, but I like it! Everything was shots with my Canon 5D Mark II with my 85mm 1.2 lens. Some Broncolor lighting, some sunlight, some Canon Speedlight.

Makeup and Hair: AJ Will

Fashion Styling: Adrienne Weinfeld-Berg

Natascha Bessez - Part 2

I photographed former Miss Teen New York and upcoming pop superstar today for Dave and Johnny Prom dresses. After the shoot, we decided to take a couple more sexy shots in the natural sunlight. The first 2 are from this shoot today. The second two are from previous days when we were messing around.


Also, her is a video she shot recently singing Mr Saxobeat in Espanol. I think it is pretty cool. To check out my first post on Natascha and see her amazing cover Bruno Mar's Grenade, click here.




Here are the 2 shots from today. Shot with Hasselblad H3D 39 Megapixel, Handheld with a 150mm lens set at F3.2.



The following 2 shots are from past shoots. Both shot on a Canon 5D MarkII with an 85mm lens.

International Photography Awards - Honorable Mention

Sometimes you get Deja Vu. Back in 2008, I posted on my blog that I had very surprisingly been awarded an Honorable Mention in the IPA Awards months earlier and just missed it. Didn't know....and was very pleased to find out. It is huge competition with tens of thousands of entries from all over the world. Sponsored by AtEdge and many others, there are some truly amazing photos entered.

Well. in the immortal words of Britney Spears, "Oops, I did it again." I was sitting in the studio with a couple of my assistants when I got an email about whether I was submitting for the 2011 awards. I started thinking about 2010!!!!! For the third year in a row, The International Photography Awards (IPA) have bestowed on me an Honorable Mention. This time it is for my light painting series from Kee Magazine.


The story was shot in my studio with Hassleblad H3D 39 Megapixel tethered to my iMac. I believe I used a standard 8omm lens. ISO 100 with long exposures. The technique was done on camera using the old school technique of light painting. Minimal Photoshop.

The model is Bettine from Muse

Styling by Keith S. Washington

Hair/Wraps by Colin Yeo

Makeup by Nami Yoshida

Natural Beauty - Katrina Eugenia

It is a staple of my blog that I post photos of models and ad campaigns. But tonight I thought I would post some photos of one of my close friends; photographer and artist Katrina Eugenia. It has been said many times that some of the biggest models and actresses are not as hot as some of the women you know. This seems to be the case with Katrina. Or at least seemed. Judging by press she is getting from Playboy (link contains nude self portraits) and Esquire, it looks like the world is finding out. Here's the NY Observer gossiping on her social life.


I still remember our first shoot together: before the camera came so easy to her. She was gorgeous, but had never really been in front of a lens - just behind it. Shy wasn't really the right word for it. Now, you would be hard pressed to find models who look as natural before the camera.


I made this compilation from shots I took of her that she posted on her Facebook page. It looks like none of them are retouched. Just showing her natural beauty and movement in front of the camera. Click the photo to enlarge it.


To see more Katrina, check out her Website, Blog, and Twitter.


Thanks!

A few weeks back I photographed Brazilian bombshell Fluvia Lacerda. It was a good homecoming shoot for us as I worked with Fluvia a few years back on some of her first model photos. Most of the last shoot, I still can't show you, but here is 1 shot she posted on her blog yesterday.


Check out her blog where she talks plus size and and size 18 skinny jeans.

27-24

I shot this a few months back for fashion line 27-24, but am finally getting a chance to post it.I haven't even seen the final layouts. I pulled all these off their Facebook page. The designers Jessie and Chloe make some very cool clothes. Here is 27-24's website; http://www.27-24.com/. I really like the text/drawing on the first image. Model is Kristina O'Connor from Basic Models.




Shot on location in New york with a Canon 5D MarkII. Natural lighting sometimes supplemented with Calumet Travelite using a battery pack.

Thanks!
