21st and Ivy


These were from a colaboration I did with local illustrator Jess Smart Smiley for 21st & Ivy back in 2010. I've been a big fan of Jess' work so I was excited to find an excuse to work with him.

I look forward to working with him again, this year, on another project.

My buddy Devereaux and his sister served as models.

Most Valuable Player

When I first contacted my friend Emily - who would be styling this shoot - about the concept, I wrote - "A girl nicely dressed on the playing field with a team of rugby players. Juxtapose a beautiful girl [with] a rowdy muddy group of guys."

We may not have achieved the muddy part but I think we got the rest of the concept right.

31st & Ivy - Shoot Revisited

In case you haven't already started working on (or thinking about) a Halloween costume, I thought I would share this shoot I did for 21st & Ivy a couple years ago.
The idea behind this shoot was to provide costume ideas that didn't cost a lot of money and could easily be assembled from goods found in your own closet.

This was another opportunity to work alongside my good friend Emily - who styled a lot of my shoots for Square Magazine. Like always, she styled the girls and I took care of the guys. She always does great work and I especially loved her ideas with the footless tights on the ghost and the excessive layering on the bandit.

The Teen Wolf costume above is my personal favorite, because of how subtle it is - the tufts of furr coming through the shoes, jeans and sleeves. This is a costume even someone who hates dressing up could pull off.

Costume details can be found here.
