Dec 19, 2009 - PAINT! Christmas Edition

I got the opportunity to work with Todd Hartman again at a really awesome Body painting event. Its 6 days before Christmas, so this was of course holiday themed :) I finally got a chance to do some intense styling since hair, makeup, and wardrobe was up to me. Its hard to see but there are 2 light-up snowflakes on each side of my head and LEDs strewn throughout the hairstyle. There was a 'patrons favorite' contest and I got TONS of compliments on my hair, but unfortunately the contest started while I was being painted so I didn't get a chance to enter :(
still lots of fun though :)

Dec 9, 2009 - Shoot with Julia Comita

Today I shot with Julia Comita, who is an Academy of Art student. Its been a while since I did any trade work with an Academy student but I'm always partial to them since most of my early shoots were collaborations with students, and Jay Parez, who I've shot with more times than any other photographer, was a student there as well. I really appreciate the professionalism of the students I've worked with - They put a lot of effort into their projects.

This was only the second time I'd worked with a male model. I rarely get cast in projects that involve multiple models so that was a pleasant novelty. The theme was plastic and there is some interesting symbolism. I helped very mildly with the editing :)
