Jay Kahlon, a music video producer from India had 10 Seattle based photographers place a bid on his High End Nahkra production. Jay wanted BTS photography as well as staged, fashion focused images that could be used for digital advertising. Gregor Media made the cut!

Madison Avenue Hair Salon was looking for imagery to use for both digital content and portfolio pieces that could be submitted to fashion publications. I put in a casting call for a models that I thought Madison Avenue could work well with for hair and styling and Christarra did not disappoint. We wanted to create imagery that brought attention to the hair in this shoot but also emphasized a smart and slick look in the model.  The concept developed into a black and white theme, utilizing harsh afternoon sunlight to create shadows on Christarra's face. The nail highlights were done in post.

Mylio, a software company founded by Microsoft's former CTO, is a photo management tool that accesses and organizes your image archive across multiple devices. The editor of their online magazine, True Stories, tasked me to produce a how-to article with images on stylized portraiture. For this in-particular shot I used a Fresnel video light with a gel as well as a black lace gobo which projected the shadows you see on Richard's face.

Model: Masha Zhandarmova 

This was a speculative ad eventually used by creative agency Solo Media as a promotional poster.

The shoot took place underneath a gantry crane at the Port of Seattle. It took several months to get TSA clearance to shoot here and the day of, the port's security basically gave me a thirty minute window to shoot. Because Masha, is a dancer, it made sense that to draw attention to her toned legs which contrasted nicely with the legs of the crane.

I wanted to a capture an image that screamed 007 Rene, a model who had just earned the title of Miss USA.  My intention was to capture something you'd see in a movie theater on a Bond promo poster.  

This was shot at the Point Defiance Marina in Tacoma with a combination of natural and LED ice lights. 

These shots were taken to advertise a tie front romper for Peace Love and Happiness Club’s summer 2018 collection.  A Profoto B1x strobe and beauty dish were used.
