Lindsey’s fashion photo session in Town Center.

She was visiting from Texas, wanted to reconnect, and get some new images done.

Lindsey and I have been friends since 2008 and we’ve done several sessions over the years. She moved to the Lone Star State a few years ago but we’ve remained in touch and we try to meet up whenever she visits. The stars aligned during her most recent one so we did our thing.

Since she was traveling light we were limited to what she could fit in her overnight bag. She is 100% a country girl so we decided to do a riff on that by shooting in Town Center. Sorta the “country girl in the big city” kinda thing.

Cassidy Burnett’s Virginia Beach fashion shoot.

Read on to learn about The Model Experience sessions.

Cassie was one of the models who walked the catwalk during the recent Town Center Fashion Show. You can see those images here. We started communicating via social media soon after. She’s just starting out her modeling career and I’m getting back into fashion photography so it made perfect sense to team up.

Images from Saturday night’s Town Center Fashion Show.

 

It was my first time photographing a runway show. It won’t be my last.

I recently got a heads up from Jessica Magary, a great friend and awesome runway model, that there was going to be a fashion show in Virginia Beach’s Town Center. As I’ve always wanted to see her in action but haven’t made it up to New York City to see her strut her stuff during Fashion Week, I figured this would be a great way to dip my toes into runway photography and see her in action.

The show, held in Town Center Fountain Plaza and hosted by Chelsie Hightower, featured fall fashions that can be found in Town Center shops. These included:

Monkee’s of Virginia Beach, Anthropologie, Destination Maternity, Francesca’s, Men’s Wearhouse, French Twist, Boyer’s Diamonds at Town Center, Bevello, Free People.

The models hair and make-up were done by Sumatra Salon and Spa. Blue Mercury supplied the make-up. Also included were five dogs done up with outfits from Mrs. Bones Boutique and the set was decorated with items that can be found at West Elm.

Tershia’s fashion session in Virginia Beach’s Town Center.

Picking up from where I left off and pushing further with this proof of concept session.

I’ve been doing this photography thing for a while. How long, you ask? Well, lets just say that I launched my business the same year Fox and Mulder started exploring their “X-Files.”

I’ve covered a lot of ground over the years. I’ve worked with color, black and white, and infra-red film before crossing over to the digital age. I’ve shot fashion, wedding, beauty (which was called glamour when I started), photojournalism, portrait, boudoir, landscape, sports, automotive, and much more. This is extended to every technique/fad like shallow depth of field portraits, cross-processing film/filters, editing image files, et cetera.

Carrie’s fashion session in downtown Norfolk, Virginia.

Taking it to the streets.

I often get asked if I do more than beach sessions. The short answer is yes, yes I do. The possibilities are endless, really.

Arlandra Taylor returns to the beach to celebrate her birthday.

The reasons to do a session with me are as varied as the people I work with.

Arlandra is no stranger to my camera. We have known each other since one faithful sunrise session four years ago. She was part of a group of models that worked with a group of photographers of which I was one. She stood out in my mind and I must have made a favorable impression because we started doing one on one sessions soon after.

She radiates a confidence that is second to none and she can MOVE. She makes it look so effortless as she glides from pose to pose with a million different moments in between. If I were to ever have a model workshop to teach those looking to start a career in the field, she would be on the very short list of people I want there to show the students how it’s done. She just knows how to hold herself and maintain such a strong presence.
