Merethe Hopland

leave a comment »

The wonderful Joanna at Fashion Gone Rogue recently ran some of my shots of Merethe Hopland. These are some of my favorite shots I’ve done of a model in a while. I was the first to shoot her with the new haircut (well, kinda… it was cut while shooting an editorial so… kinda 2nd). Being first I felt I should make iconic images of her that could stay with her as she starts booking work and bigger campaigns. We literally only had 4 hours to shoot because she had to fly to Milan for a job that afternoon. Since then she has shot with a few others – I hope they can keep her momentum going and I really hope these do a lot of good for her career!

I did some work with Elisa & Hailey today. I’ve been wanting to shoot Hailey for some time now but our schedules just haven’t matched until today. I’ll be releasing more next week through my tumblr, faceboook, website and other places.

Inspired by Blogs

This piece is inspired by some things I’me seeing run around blogs. Some elements (the white dots) are based on the work of other artists while the digital cutting is based off general web techniques for collage and old sci-fi posters/movies.
