The MISSBEHAVE issue that I shot SLUT MACHINE for is now on News stands. It was really great to get the issue and not only see my photo in it, but to be amongst other great photographers. Angela Boatwright shot an amazing metal fashion story. I used to be Angela's office assistant when she had her company Killer of Giants. Jimmy Foutain and I worked for Angela together and he shot more then a couple of different stories for the issue. Including a bowling rally with famed girl rock band THE DONNAS. Matt Salacuse was up in there, and Beatrice Neuman who I have yet to meet but we just included in our most recent issue of RADAR. And of course, who could forget the talented and beautiful Brooke Nipar. She's got the best working for her. I'm thrilled to be apart of the issue and the magazine.
Hello Readers. I know I haven't updated my blog in awhile but I figured I would start off with something big. About a month ago HX magazine CEO Mathew Bank asked me to shoot a cover package for them. I had done something for them earlier in the year and he felt this would be the "dare to be great" situation he was saving me for. Of course, I got my boyfriend Casey Maher in on the deal. He art directed, photo assisted and played "crowd control" for the evening. The story was about the return of famed gay bar MR BLACK. The bar was shut down about a year ago and the whole staff had come back to work at it's new location. We shot there on a Friday night before it opened. The claim to fame for me, and I'm sure Casey was assembling a group shot of 15 people. We knew the it was going to be the opening spread and was asking by Editor and Cheif Brandon Voss to mind the gutter. It was a heavy task but, in the end we got the shoot.
I want to give a shout out to Casey. For being such a good sport, and always lending a hand. I also want to clear up any rumors to the graphic design community that he has taken on an "art director" position at HX. He just did it that one night, for me, as a favor. Sorry HX, he's all mine!
The issue came out week before last, but I scanned it all for your viewing pleasure. enjoy.
