I think this is one of my favorite shoots of this past year! I shot this fashion editorial for Auxiliary Magazine with fashion stylist Shannon Kramp and I have to say, we make a pretty awesome team. We shot at a classic lima bean shaped pool in the country outside Buffalo and its curves allowed for lovely swooping shapes of turquoise in every shot. The models, hair, and makeup were all spot on and although we may all have been quite beat after an eight hour long shoot in the sun, we had a blast! See more of this fashion editorial and more swimsuits by Heavy Red and Tavik in the June/July 2014 Issue of Auxiliary Magazine.
I worked with fashion stylist Shannon Kramp on this creepy fashion editorial for Auxiliary Magazine. We shot at Hamlin House in the Allentown neighborhood of Buffalo and featured fashions by Pin Up Girl Clothing, Contrived to Charm, Cats Like Us, and more. You can see more of this fashion editorial in the April/May 2014 Issue of Auxiliary Magazine.
Over five years ago myself and three other editors founded Auxiliary Magazine as a magazine for alternative fashion, music, and lifestyle. I had been shooting alternative fashion editorials for a while and couldn’t find the perfect outlet for them, so we created one. Since then I have had the privilege of working with countless photographers and writers and featuring countless designers, artists, and musicians. It has been a great five years!
To get Auxiliary to the next level and to send the magazine to print, we are pre-selling subscriptions via Kickstarter. Kickstarter is the best known crowd funding website and a great way for artists and musicians and other creatives to independently fund their projects. The Kickstarter is the first time Auxiliary has offered subscriptions and one of the rewards for backing is the first Auxiliary Magazine T-shirt, it’s very exciting for us!
Please consider backing and getting a digital or print subscription. You’ll see my photography (plus my editing, art direction, styling, and writing skills) in each issue plus tons of other amazing work from many other amazing creatives. There are only five days left to back so get all the details, watch the video, check out our rewards packages, subscribe, and help spread the word!
