This shoot from last summer was the first time we shot with the lovely Vera Claeys. We photographed our punk inspired editorial for the Heritage & Folklore issue of Velvet Dust at the Missions in San Antonio- super great spot if you're never been. Enjoy!

Gaze Pt. 1 (Hermann Park Sculpture Garden Editorial)

I'm the first to admit that I'm terrible at narrowing down my own images. This editorial was specifically difficult for me. When we featured it in the Paracosm issue for Velvet Dust- the images were all edited black & white which I loved. Here, I've kept some as such but included some of my favorites color edits. This editorial focuses on obscuring our beautiful model's face through various avenues: her back simply turned to the camera, the deception of reflection, and her scarf both blurred with motion and serving as another sculpture, frozen in time. I'll be posting more images from this editorial because I just can't help myself but for now, enjoy.

The Oracles (Austin, TX Editorial for Velvet Dust)

I wanted to share outtakes from The Seekers editorial I shot for our last issue of Velvet Dust. All I have to say it, cellophane and prisms go a long way. :) Enjoy!
