“When in doubt, wear red.”
How will one flirty, flowey, & well cut dress change the way you look at photography? Through a variety of eye attracting photographers & an ocular love affair, that’s how. I’ve decided to shoot this fabulous Abyss by Abby number with some of my all time favorite snappers… It’s incredible just how differently each of them capture the same model & dress! This is a photo experiment I’ve conducted to show depth, versatility, movement, passion, and expression.
The project all started with Fernando Madero (@madero_films), one hot and dusty spring day. We ventured to the Kelso Sand Dunes together with 3 items: A camera, a Helmet & a particular red dress. The wind hurled through the air as we approached the tips of the highest peak. Our energy was entirely depleted from the mile long walk in 80 degree heat. However, we managed to give it our best effort to capture this shot. It was this photo that had me longing to create more! Madero & I even printed out wall frames to remind us daily that art is a priority in life.
The next series I began working on was inspired by one of my favorite comic mavens. Together me & Johnny Walter (@johnnycinematic) created a simple yet effective shot to replicate that oh-so famous question, “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?”… With a ‘Bleed Gold Blog’ twist! The thrill of adventure and traveling the globe always inspired my career as a model.
As you can see, each photo is so different than the next! I began realizing this was the start of something special. This one project has now turned into the makings of one epic coffee book that will be released in the near future. Seen here first, #reddressloveaffair will tantalize the viewer with the most elaborate use of photography and creativity we can deliver!
The possibilities really are endless with this single red dress. It just goes to show you that it’s not just about what you wear, but also how you style it. Here is a teaser of the latest photo session with Jawny (@extra.virgin). Keep an eye out for our full red series as it will be one hypnotic eye catcher!
