Tank Girl in October.

I had a final October Superheros/Villains/Comic Character shoot with Amy as Tank Girl.

Amy was a lot of fun to shoot and is an make-up artist and is in the film Knights of Badassdom (Yes, this film was shot in Spokane!) that is coming out soonish. She has a smaller part but gets to kick all kinds of demon ass in the film.

I got to try out a new location for the shoot and may use it in the future because the old buildings are great background. I have only just started to explore the area and there is still other parts of it that I want to try as backdrop in photos.

I have another shoot I am editing for this project that I beat the snow by shooting on Sunday, Nov. the 13th. It was cold as heck but I managed to get some great shots. Cannot wait to share an example from the shot here after I am done editing.

 I will take a break for the Thanksgiving holiday and then see if we cannot get some lasting snow that I can use as backdrop in future shoots.

Willard Asylum Suitcase Project by Jon Crispin.

I was doing a bit of wandering around online tonight and came across this wonderful project that the photographer Jon Crispin is undertaking.

He is raising money to fun this project on Kickstarter (and you can view the video about the project there since it will not embed correctly!) and hopes to maybe share it on completion as  a book or some other form of artistic medium.

I would definitely buy a book of these images since these suitcases show who the people were through their personal effects and most of them never left the asylum after entering it. As a lover of history seeing these photos he is taking of the personal belongings really fascinates me. It also gives you a look at who the people were before/as they were overtaken by mental illness.

I am so glad to come across this project and hope that Crispin is able to publish a book of his images of the suitcases sometime in the future.

Johnny as Albert Wesker from Resident Evil

Another photo shoot from my superheroes/villains project went without too many hitches.

Johnny dressed as his version of Albert Wesker from Resident Evil and we tried locations near my home since we both were in the same area that day. We dodged the racing clouds and rain to do the shoot in just an hour and 15 minutes time.

I am happy with some of the results and will show you on of my favorites here

This shoot had a lot of really cool images and I am very happy with them. I am not sure which one to send my partner in this project to draw.

Jared Photo Shoot

I took a little break from my superheroes/villains photo project and did a straight-forward photo shoot of a model, Jared, to just have some new images to add to my site.

I got some pretty good results and will share one or two here.

I have one more photo shoot to edit and then I can take a breather until the 13th (of Nov.) when the process starts all over again with a new photo shoot.
