Creative Reminder: A little 90’s Grunge Testing

For a Photo Stylist, testing is an amazing thing. It allows you to branch out of your little box and be creative and to just have pure fun while you work. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my job! But having to constantly obey the rules of your client 5 days a week, 365 days of the year can be a little stifling to your creative self.

My last post was about how I lost that passion, and here is a post to help remind me of it. Last year, myself, my awesome photog, my hilarious digi-tech, my spunky HMU, and a beautiful model all came together for a fun shoot in Philly’s FDR Park ๐Ÿ˜„
Here is the result of that test, to remind me the fun and passion and creativity that lies within my job โ™ฅ๏ธ

I hope you enjoyed this glance into my mind. Stay tuned for more creative things to come. 

Oh and if anyone wants to collaborate on a test shoot, fashion or cosplay or anything just send me a message! I would love to work with you! ๐Ÿ˜


Geeking out on set today :D

I love that I can wear casual and comfy clothing to work, when you run around all day, jeans and a t-shirt are staples in my work closet! But today, I decided to geek it up and wear my new Cosplay With Me, Just Do IT! t-shirt ๐Ÿ˜€ I fell in love with this saying because it really is soo true when it comes to my cosplay dreams ๐Ÿ˜€ I was so excited when Cosplay With Me decided to make this saying into a t-shirt!
Here is a shot of me trying to look uh, cool on set. haha

Future Thinking: I think I want to be a Photo Art Director


Don’t get me wrong I love being a photo stylist, but sometimes I think I could do more.
It’s a little weird that as I have been wondering what else I could do in my field, one of my models and one of my Make-up Artists said that I would make a good Art Director. So it got me thinking, could I take on that role? I think I can, but then I am not sure how to even get started working towards such a goal!

I have a BS in Fashion Merchandising and a MBA, I am also the lead stylist at a studio. But I mostly work on e-commerce and I occasionally work on some concept and marketing pieces. I feel that I lack the graphic design creative background a lot of art directors have. I am somewhat knowledgeable in Adobe Photoshop and InDesign, Which, I mostly learned from watching and talking to my retouchers and photographers, watching youtube videos and just by exploringย these programs.

I also work with a lot of Art Directors and I think I could do very well as a Fashion Photo Art Director. It’s just getting my foot in that door and training myself for such a role, that I am unsure of.

If there are any photo art directors out there, advice would be greatly appreciated on attempting and making this goal a responsibility. I might not be made for it, but I would rather fail than not try at all. ย ๐Ÿ˜€
