fashion and weddings

I have occasionally dabbled in fashion photography and certainly as a wedding photographer, shooting fashion is an important part the varied skill set that you have to have.  Last weekend I had the opportunity to help out a friend of mine Brittany Smith on a photo project she was shooting, along with the demonstrably amazing photographer Dennis Rodgers. The ‘talent’ was a stunning young lady, Michala Zambon who is represented by Major Models NYC.  Now you may think this is just a bunch of fluff about my friends, but I am serious.  Check out Brittany’s work… see for yourself.

I was excited to help with the duties of holding reflectors, lights, camera’s and stands against the winds of the Paradise Valley and shoot when time allowed. Paradise Valley is holy ground and it never disappoints with dramatically beautiful skies.  I can’t wait to see the images that Brittany produced for her project!

Eventually, we all ended up at the Rib and Chop House in Livingston for a great dinner and some special spirits that Dennis produced from his camera bag!   Here are some production stills and a few images of Michala that I grabbed during the shoot.

Brittany, thanks so much for allowing me to shoot alongside you and for giving your permission to share them here.

Checking out the angles


Dennis and Brittany
Chimping and smiling! Like kids in a candy shop.
Serious Brittany, bearing down on making the magic!


This is Dennis ‘standing in’ for Michala while we were scouting for perfect little locations. Look’n good D man!
And this is an image I made of Michala in the same place a bit later.
I had been hearing the Heron talking in the valley and sure enough a couple of them appeared over head. I was holding a reflector at the time, but my camera on my wrist strap!!! I LOVE MOMENTS!

Here’s an image that Dennis captured during some real weather drama!   Wow!
