These are some shots from my last photography assignment in college, a 12-image series. I’ve always wanted to do a shoot in the beautiful Hocking Hills areas here in Southern Ohio. I also knew I wanted to beef up the fashion and fashion still life areas of my portfolio before graduation.
I teamed up with my friend Katie O’Connor, a talented stylist who I have often collaborated with for Thread Magazine, and Levi Finley, my friend and fellow photographer student. Katie hooked me up with all the clothes and our lovely model Anga, who we paid in appreciation, facebook profile pics, and pretzels. Although I kept the equipment to a minimum (one head and Profoto Acute-B 600R, D800), I wouldn’t have been able to manage it without Levi assisting and often holding the light stand on precariously uneven ground.
