Chey Alexandria

These photos are from my very first shoot with Cheyenne Alexandria. I have met Chey a few times in the past, as she has come through the studio for shoots with some of my customers. After seeing her give 110% for 8 straight hours at a shoot, I knew I would have a great time shooting with her. One day, a customer had a model flake at the last moment and Chey was able to come in and save the day. I wound up booking her for another hour after the customer's shoot and these shots are the result. We shot these at my studio, Photo Bang Bang in Las Vegas. The space is available for rent to the public, and I am available to help with lighting and anything else a photographer might need. Stop by if you're ever in town!

Fashion Beauty headshots with Katy

I worked with Model Katy Mahon and Make Up Artist Sam Freezy to create this bedazzled photo shoot inspired by the work of @kimberleymargarita_ on Instagram.

This is a lighting setup that I really love, but it is complex with 6+ light sources to set up, inspired by the work of Jill Greenberg. The key light is a ring flash and I have a beauty dish directly above the model. A single gridded light is creating a spot on the background, rather than lighting the entire backdrop. I think I may have skipped the backlights/rim lights for these shots, so I guess I was cheating on the number of light sources.

I like to shoot film whenever I shoot, alongside the digital shots. I used a Mamiya RB67 and Fuji FP-100C Pack Film to create the instant shots. I wish the polaroid back for the camera created images that were centered, but it's always a treat toe see the juicy bokeh on the 150MM Soft Focus Lens I pair with the camera.

Double Exposures with Contortionist Cheryl Birch

Any time that I shoot with Cheryl Birch, I like to take double exposure Instant Film shots. Since she's already able to pose in surreal ways, the double exposures can be especially intriguing. I like using the Lomography Instant Wide for double exposures because I've gotten used to it's quirks and it is fairly reliable for me. In addition to multiple exposures, it also lets me hook up to my studio lights.
My workflow is to set up lighting and shoot digital, and grab film shots along the way, or all at the end. I set the digital camera to ISO800 to match the film and make setup easier.
A pack of film is only 10 exposures and sometimes it can take a surprising amount of time to make those 10 shots. Double exposing slows the process down considerably and it can take as long as an hour to get through the pack.
I occasionally make my instant film originals available for sale, and I always have prints. A compendium of my instant photos will be featured in an upcoming issue of NudeArtZine, including a few of these.

Double Exposures w/ Anaïs Dior

I used my Lomography Instant Wide to create these images using Instax wide film in color and monochrome. I shot these at my studio, Photo Bang Bang, using the Cyclorama/Infinity Cove setup. Anaïs is a professional model I hired and this was our first shoot together. I am using Paul C Buff Einsteins for lighting in these photos. The Lomo camera has a PC sync for studio strobes as well as a setting for multiple exposures.

When I compose these shots, I never know exactly what I am going to get because the camera viewfinder is quite offset from the lens. It's hard to know what it sees, and when I flip the camera upside-down to get the second shot, the lens finder limitation is more apparent. It's kind of an instinctual setup once one gets used to the camera. It's become my favorite camera to shoot, but even more so when it's not being temperamental.

I have completely worn out one of these cameras from shooting and I am starting to get some problems from the one I am using now. It is starting to give me some problems ejecting the first few images from the pack. I am hoping I don't have to replace it, but It's getting very annoying to use. I have to open the back and fiddle around with the pack while trying to get whatever magic things that happens to make the film load through the rollers.

Fuji is actively making their Instax instant film, and it's easy to get. I prefer to buy mine from B&H Camera, who seem to have the best prices in the USA. They also sell the Lomography camera I am using for this shoot.

I have a large archive of my work available on my webpage for people who subscribe to my Patreon.
