FHM Magazine - Melanie Iglesias Demands Your Attention

Very Cool for FHM Magazine to do a story on the Melanie Iglesias Flip Books 1 and 2 today.  They featured the first video when it came out, but this was a little more special as they attached a fun story about both.  The videos are doing amazing.  Part 1 is over 1.1 Million views today and Part 2 is at 740,000 views in 4 days.  Amazing.  Below are links to both, plus the link to ALL Melanie links.

1 Million Hits - Melanie Iglesias Flip Book

It's official.  1 Million hits for Flip Book 1.  I still remember when Melanie and I joked that maybe we would get 50,000 hits.  Here is the screen shot that I only thought would ever come in my life if someone got some video of me falling into a fountain or something with all my cameras.

I want to thank everyone who helped us in this phenomenal .....I don't know the word for it....achievement?...This force that just took off.  I, first and foremost, want thank Melanie, as do the million people who saw the video.  She is amazing; so sweet, down to earth.  It is her.

I want to thank Philip DeFranco for introducing his audience to us with “MELANIE IGLESIAS RAISES DEBT CEILING BY SELLING CHINESE CHILDREN .“  It was the single biggest help.  His show is constantly amazing.  I am a big fan.

I want to thank Maxim, Sports Illustrated and FHM for all featuring the video on their front page.  Great top of the line publications that love Melanie and the work we did.




Also, thank you to the dozens of other very cool sites that also featured us.  Here are some below.



If you haven't yet, please check out The Melanie Iglesias Flip Book Part 2 video.  Out for just 48 hours now, it has a whopping 400,000 hits, 8800 Likes and has 11 YouTube honors; including the #1 Viewed, #1 Rated and #1 Favorited Video of the Day for People & Blogs, the #4 Most Discussed in P&B, and the #6 Favorited and #11 Viewed Video today of every YouTube Video in the world.

Philip DeFranco's newest video, MELANIE IGLESIAS CREATES STICKINESS FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF LIGHT?! also features Melanie's and my stop motion video.  It is the #2 Rated, #3 Discussed, #5 Most Viewed, #7 Favorited Video on all of YouTube today.  Amazing.


Finally, here is a link to ALL my dozens of Melanie Iglesias Posts with small thumbnails to guide you.

Melanie Iglesias Flip Book 2 is Finally Here!!!

It is the moment we have all been waiting for since the first 3:42 seconds ended, The Melanie Iglesias Flip Book Part 2!!!!! It was so much fun to shoot the sequel.  I hope everyone enjoys watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.  Of course, our mystery guest is revealed in the first image on the video preview below.  It is the gorgeous Lisa Ramos!!

Check back here soon as I will post the awesome behind the scenes photos in the next week or so.  We didn't take any during the original video, so we made up for it with lots of fun and sexy shots.  Here is a tiny taste, but Melanie and I still have to select the final ones to post.

Check out Melanie's Youtube channel for all the excitement:

http://www.youtube.com/MELANIEIGL


Special thanks to everyone who helped out with making the video.  Stylist Keith S. Washington brought us some of those cool outfits.  Oz Rodriguez and AJ Will did the girls' makeup.  And my assistant was Spencer Kohn.

HERE is the LINK to ALL Melanie links from this blog in one handy compilation with large thumbnails to guide you.

A special thank you to the beautiful Lisa Ramos for being our wonderful mystery guest star.  I know she is like a sister to Melanie and has always been a great model friend to me.  Ina round about way, if not for her generosity, Flip Book part 1 may never have come to be.   Here is a link to a Lisa Ramos shoot I posted last year. Here is a sexy swimsuit shot I posted of Lisa on Tumblr.

Thanks!

Alison Burnet - New Hot Shoot!

I had a shoot with hot model Alison Burnett today.  It is hard to believe that is like the fourth time we worked together, but only the second time I got to decide what to create.  You can see the gorgeous results from the first one here.  Alison is one of my favorite muses.  She is just naturally very sensual.  You will see texture in the skin, moles, spots on the floor, and little "mistakes"  because I didn't retouch a thing.  I thought it was great to see her real beauty.

Click the photos to enlarge






You can hire Alison through Basic Models in New York.  Makeup and Hair by Oz Rodriguez.  All photos today were taken on Canon 5D Mark II with mostly an 85mm 1.2 lens and the full length with a 24-70mm 2.8 lens.  The exposures and lighting varied a lot.  Studio shots were taken with Broncolor.


Thanks!
Michael Creagh

I am really excited to post my new pharmaceutical Ad Campaign with BioLife Plasma Services. It was a real pleasure to shoot.  Celina, who has primary immunodeficiency, was just fantastic in front of the camera.  And that painting in the photo is really hers!!!





Special thanks to Maggie Traidman, Pivot Design, Inc, whose direction and spirit was essential.
