Julia Z @ Muse

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Earlier this month we shot some Macro beauty with the very talented makeup artist Mykel Renner, nail tech Kelly Baber, and Julia Z from Muse.

Here is a small selection from the shoot.  If you want to see more, check out the rest of the shoot on our website.

I am now obsessed with sticky gooey lips (I started doing this before I teamed up with Duck but my obsession continues) and try to get one into every beauty shoot we do now and since we can, we decided to throw ourselves into the shoot… Isn’t Ducky so pretty with his magenta lips!




…and here are a few action shots we took with Mykel on the fly…

BG Magazine beauty editorial

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

We have been SUPER busy this past month with editorial work, but we have a moment to get back on track and update the blog.

This month we are happy to say that we shot a cool beauty editorial and one of our images was used for cover for BG Magazine. The story is 1 part of a 2 part vision concepted by Chris Milone, and based on the works of Dutch tattoo artist, Angelique Houtkamp. Check out her work, it is amazing. We are only sad that she is booked out for the rest of the year and could not tattoo us when we traveled to Europe this May.

Animal Farm: working with animals

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

Today we decided to try something new. Now working with multiple models can get tricky. I find that whenever one in totally on point the other is looking off into space or doing something that is not quite on par. Now these trouble multiple exponentially the more models you add into a set.

What happens when one of your models is an African gray parrot?

We have a friend (and hair stylist) that has a few exotic birds as pets. The are always at the studio, hanging out on everyone’s shoulder, saying inappropriate comments. Then we had an idea, what sort of fab prop would one of those make in a shoot?!?!

Directing people is trouble enough, but think of doing it with a bird, untrained, does not speak English, and we definitely do not speak parrot.

In the end, all you can really hope for when working with animals is the one perfect shot where everyone is doing something magic. Though I do have to say that I does make the editing process MUCH easier since there are so many no’s.

Working with animals there are a lot of “bloopers” (as much as I really despise that word). Merlin, parrot, was eating the models hair, jewelry, lips, got covered in makeup, and started to fly away. Some of these outtakes turned out to be images that we both really liked. So you never really know what to expect from animals and that is part of the fun. They definitely do bring their own personality to the shoot. I think in the future we I would like to work with a very larger dog, a pig, a chicken and whatever else I have on offer.


Gone Fishing

Friday, September 11th, 2009

We finished all the post for the last 2 tests we did with Major Model Management.

We had one of our favorite hair stylists come all the way from Baltimore with a case full of hair and a simple concept Рnets.  Granted as always the shoot did not take form how we originally envisioned it, but the finals are quite nice.
