Recently I shot the Post Apunkalyptic Style feature for the Fall 2016 Issue of Auxiliary Magazine and it was a fun feature to put together! One of my favorite models, Kayte Kz came in from New York City for it. I have been working with Kayte for years and it’s always a pleasure to build a working relationship with someone and work with them on many projects over time. You already know how each other work and if you’re a great fit, it can make the shoot feel effortless.
For the Summer 2016 installment of Auxiliary Magazine’s Must feature we chose frequent Auxiliary makeup artist Mallory Jay to model. It’s always fun getting those who are normally behind the scenes in the spotlight. Mallory nailed it and did the makeup and wig styling for this feature. We featured Danani’s Pewter Bohemian Headpiece, a beautiful vintage inspired headpiece. Auxiliary Fashion Editor Shannon Kramp styled and we shot it in Buffalo’s Ellicott Creek Park by all the beautiful willow trees there.
This summer I shot the athletic wear fashion editorial Suspend for Auxiliary Magazine’s Summer 2016 Issue. We had been wanting to do an athletic wear editorial for a while and when it occurred to our fashion editor Shannon Kramp that one of the model’s we’ve featured many times in Auxiliary, Samm Haney, was an aerial dancer, it all fell into place. We contacted Buffalo Aerial Dance and through them had a location and two more models, Anastasia Maria and founder Erica Cope.
This Sheer Terror Style feature for Auxiliary Magazine’s Spring 2016 Issue was a little bit different than past ones I have shot. I have been shooting the Style feature for the last few issues of Auxiliary and this time around we decided to go with photos where the model is smiling. Not very common in fashion photography where things tend to be more serious but the detail upper body shots for this feature allow for some playfulness. The focus of this Style feature is sheer clothing and the overall styling had a faint 90s vibe that really paired well with smiling and laughing photos.
