Firefly Salon Fall 2013

FireFlySalon-367Fall 2013 passed in the wind, and the styles of Firefly Salon became light but short, simultaneously dark but long with contrasting shadows. Sisters both exit and enter the woods through a ray of cool warmth.

The Mechanic: Madison Rose works Bergstrom’s Antique and Classic Autos (Port Townsend, WA)

TheMechanic-43

Madison Rose of Heffner Management came up to Port Townsend with a crew to help create a working-woman’s scene set in vintage era, somewhere between 1936 and 1955.  Bergstrom’s Antique & Classic Autos became the perfect setting with a garage full of antique parts shelved from floor to ceiling.  Here Maddie played Rosie the Riveter, slowly transforming into an era of classic fashion and the American denim.

Alexandra Lorenz: Beauty Shots

HanaRoseBeauty0343

A simple carport test shoot on a Sunday afternoon for young Alexandra Lorenz who recently signed with Seattle Models Guild.  It was fun, casual, and slightly chilly in April’s afternoon shade.  With three strobes (one beauty dish and two soft boxes) and a bounce for fill, it was all Alexandra.

Seattle Central Creative Academy: Photography Assignment (Glamour Narrative)

Three shots in three separate scenes, telling the same story within a narrative series.  It tells the tale of a model of three eras of fashion: the 60s, 80s and modern.  As a model, she’s on the journey of her career.  Although she has it all – the beauty, the clothes, the style and money – she finds herself at a crossroads seeking more, but is subsequently slipping into a lifestyle she’s becoming all-too familiar with.
