Glossy magazine: U.K. based magazine
I have been focused on getting published in European magazines. So i was very excited to have Glossy Magazine approach me to submit a shoot i did while working with my Miami team.
Glossy requested my images for a 5 page editorial but we got the cover as well!
The Model is of course very important to me so I was delighted to work with Meighan who came highly recommended, by a trusted Designer.
Once i reviewed the models images from the agency, i was totally excited about her look … she had the eyes. And this detail is what caught the eye of British Editor-and-Chief, Tallulah Doherty. Our original background concept was a bit more dramatic but one little change to highlight the subject and there it was on the pages of a Glossy, my first European Magazine.
The day of the shoot proved long, but loads of fun.The mismanaged booking of shooting space 8am was not available till 10am. Heads rolled at the concierge, but we made the best of it. Even using the the side of a building to act as a gigantic soft-box. In order to manage the time properly we used a predetermined shot list. Further issues came in the night time when the mosquitoes loomed on us. I had to cover my entire body, wrap a scarf around my neck and remain focused on keeping the Model from being eaten alive. Couldn’t get bug spray all over the stylist’s clothes!
Meijhan was very focused and managed to not get distracted by the bugs. We completed the shoot on schedule.
Here are some of the Pages from the Editorial :
There are quite a few more images from the shoot that were not used but will be on my website .
This was published last year when i didnt have a blog then so i get to share it with you now before the year is complete.
I don’t care that this is a year old… I could play it forever.

This Man is something else… what do you think?
This is a great example of a company really understand the power of imagery and how far it can reach.
I remember David Gandy and I definately remember Dolce & Gabbana ..i am curious about the fragrance now.
ciao for now
Looking Back :
I have been testing some of Peggi LePage’s Model and helping them with their Portfolio to go aboard.Peggi is a scout and mother agent , and in my opinion one of the most attentive I have seen in a long time.
Gwen has been sent to Shanghai and is doing really well. I have this thing for redheads.. I like the contrast between the pale skin and intense color of red hair. Gwen is a strawberry blond, kinda of red but I still love her. Her look is interesting and I think has quirky-like European feel.
I wanted to really impress a super girly look as well as Glamorous for the contrast of her book.
I am not sure if people didn’t think it couldn’t be done on her but I decided to bring that out.
Here is what came of our 2 shoots together in preparation for her trip to Asia….. in the gallery above.
Ciao For Now
