warehouse chic ...... & then some


warehouse chic ...... & then some
My current goal is to work with and to learn from new vendors by coming together in our free time to blend creativity. Understanding the value of a strong/creative beauty team and raw warehouse space I shot several backgrounds and incorporated different lighting techniques. The set here is not necessarily my favorite due to the abundance of final images, its hard to select. They are simply examples of how we as a team came together to blend and push our creativity in a unique setting. I will post additional examples in my social media, feel free to explore.

Many thanks to the shoot team (links below)

Bewilderment of Boys Cover - Karon Luddy







Bewilderment of Boys Cover - Karon Luddy 
What I discovered is when I travel I can't take my friends with me but they are always with me. I talk to them when I notice something they would like. I chalked this 'tick' up to being homesick but the more I think about it, its pure artistic influence. I believe it comes from my friends 'gift me' by sharing their art form. When I see a visual postcard, say a street poster I will tear it off a wall or I shoot something if I feel 'its them'. The beauty of this habit of sharing comes from their influence of interest and my desire to say hello I thought of you. This being said the following is a quote from my sister from another mother Charlottes mother my friend but for this post Author Karon Luddy. The story of how I secured my most prestigious cover.    

Six months after my first novel Spelldown was published, my friend Erin Hubbs emailed this amazing photograph of a handsome teenage boy and a cute teenage girl sitting on opposite sides of a spewing fountain. My flesh broke out in goosebumps when I read the caption, Karlene and Billy Ray Sighting. Had my photographer friend stalked down two young characters from my novel like a paparazzi and captured the chemistry between them with her camera? But then another notion fluttered in my heart like a velvet-throated hummingbird. Maybe Karlene and Billy Ray had gone rogue on ME, their so-called author—and now lived happily in the MINDS of READERS where they could pop up, unannounced, at any time, in any place—even at a fountain in Charleston, where Erin immediately recognized them and took their picture.

Erin Hubb’s photograph inspired me to write my second novel Bewilderment of Boys—and it will be splashed across the cover of the book, which will be published in Spring 2014. - Karon Luddy

T. Strong - StyleMayvin


T. Strong - StyleMayvin 
I first met T. Strong - StyleMayvin when I shot her for a cover and feature for a stylish magazine in Charlotte, NC. We bumped into each other again during a shoot when she styled a feature shoot. Then we had the opportunity to work together in New York after fashion week. During this shoot downtime we had time to chat about life outside of fashion. What I discovered is T is as she appears in images full of life and has a passion for fashion as art. I also discovered T. Strong is more than a brand she models, styles, engages in fashionable design for the automobile industry, attends & reviews high end fashion shows, media spokesperson, works for Calvin Klein in house and so much more. 

For me it was easy to say yes when the inquiry to shoot arrived during the holidays.... I knew it was going to be fun to regroup with someone I now consider a friend. The images above reflect a small sample of the images shot during our recent shoot.

Nika - Catalog Cover

Nika - Catalog Cover

International Designer Niki Kapoor of Nika contacted me to shoot for her. We discussed hair, makeup, models, locations, final looks and the purpose of the final selection. We decided to divide the tasks that are required and worked together to shoot over twenty gowns with two models in a unique location that offered a variety of backdrops. The image above is the current catalog cover for Nika and was documented inside The Charlotte Council of Garden Clubs

It was and still is exciting to know my work is the Nika catalog cover and available in international markets. Markets include but not limited to Mexico, Kuwait, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and United Kingdom. Understanding this shoot contains many elements with future possibilities I will share images as the collection is released by the designer.
