A short time ago I was contacted again by Neomi Rapoport (art director of Jewish in Seattle), this time to ask me about shooting a fashion feature for a holiday issue of the magazine. "Do they really mean to be asking me?" was my first thought, as I'd never claim to be a fashion photographer and do not, in fact, even feel that I'm particularly fashionable myself. I was nevertheless totally happy to do it, of course, because it's fun to branch out and do different things, and I'd never pass up the opportunity to work with Emily (editor) and Neomi. And wouldn't you know it? When you have a great location, art director, model (Devon at SMG), stylist (Emma Ranniger), and HMUA (Kathy Evans), it turns out you wind up looking pretty good. Especially when you have lovely clothes as well, provided by some of Seattle's finest designers. Here are just a few images from the day's shoot, beginning with my personal favorite:
And then, because there was some question at the magazine about fashion for the cover, we did a few photos in my studio depicting different takes on honey and apples. I quite liked them all.
