More behind the scenes intel from my several shoots for Modern Luxury's September issue! You can check out the story behind my Click photography feature HERE. The next shoot I did for Modern Luxury required a bit more coordination - I shot the 4-piece indie rock band Shark Week.
The Crew and Credits
WIth an incredible sense of rock and roll vintage in their own right, I wanted the photo to be a polished interpretation of how stylish they are in their daily lives. With help from Kara Allen, I selected a Valentino dress and Fendi heels for Danielle Vu from Hu's Wear and Hu's Shoes (my go-to for editorial womenswear in DC), and the guys were outfitted by Baltimore menswear designer Christopher Schafer Clothier. The stunning Liana Phillips of Immortal Beloved jumped in to collaborate with band member Ryan Hunter Mitchell of Eastern Confederate on hair styling for the shoot as well. Ryan owns Eastern Confederate and is DC's go-to guy for anarchist hair. With a last minute venue change, we had the opportunity to shoot in the upstairs of DC cocktail speakeasy the Gibson, one of my favorite intimate spots for a stylish drink. Polished but still rock and roll cool, we shot several location options and wrapped in two hours!
