Frank Bliss

Hey guys!
Time to meet Frank Bliss, a kickass actor based out of the DC/MD area. Because of his sharp features and his mastery of evil, he usually plays villains in movies. You would never know from his IMDb page, where his face and body are drenched in blood, what a genuinely nice and sweet guy he is.
For his headshots, we wanted to do a few traditional type shots just to have some updated ones but focus mostly on the badass, bad guy shots. Here is a little bit of what we came up with! Enjoy!

 Great classic headshots. Now on to the fun stuff!

So I stumbled upon this little alley the other day and while it’s not much to see in person, I thought it could be a great location to shoot. As you’ll see from this set, I LOVE this spot! I normally try to limit my posts from each location but I just think these all turned out great! I love the spot and I love Frank’s badass attitude!

Hey, let’s throw some glasses in for good measure.

I should mention that it was near freezing that day. And the wind… there’s always the wind…

I will leave you with one final image. The most contrasty, badassiest of them all. He almost reminds me of my personal favorite badass, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) in AMC’s Breaking Bad. Thoughts?

Shooting in the Rain with Stacie Victoria!

Stacie Victoria.

Ow ow! What a hottie!
Stacie Victoria came out to U St. last night to shoot some awesome fashion shots in the rain with me. I absolutely loved having her out and she was such a good sport about getting soaked in the rain. I loveeee how all of her photos turned out!
Another new addition is Ms. Caroline Lacey, who joined us with this photoshoot as my new little grasshopper. Yay! I love having people to teach and share all the wonderful knowledge that was shared with me. I think she is the coolest person! I am so excited! Hopefully you’ll be seeing a lot more of her around on my blog in the upcoming months.

So! Rain shoot! I came up with this idea with all the awful weather we have been having lately in combination with my desire to revamp my portfolio into more of a fashion portfolio with cool lighting and lovely models. Those ideas along with a cool location led us to Stacie Victoria and the rain shoot.

Of course, after all this rain, we got out there and it wasn’t raining. Awesome. So while we waited for the rain, we took a few other photos in different areas of our alley that we moved into for the evening.

Great texture!!

It was Stacie Victoria’s idea to jump up on this gate. Love love love!

And then!!!!!
The rain came! The shots of the night that I was waiting for! I was so excited, haha! You should have seen me… 🙂

Ahhh…. totally love these. Thanks again to Stacie Victoria and Caroline Lacey!

EDIT: I just can’t get enough of these photos. Here is an additional shot to add to this blog post! Enjoy!
