Fashion photography editorial – Kristi @ Option Model Portland

This is a long long overdue post from a fashion editorial shoot we last summer at one of my favorite spots along the Oregon Coast. There’s an amazing crescent shaped section of beach with cliffs rising up in three directions. Just rock, sand and water everywhere you turn. Its a favorite spot for the local surfers and probably more than an occasional photographer. Kristi booked this one as an editorial test shoot which I always have very high expectations from despite the limited budget and crew. I prefer to shoot agency tests this way, with a wardrobe stylist and cohesive concept, that way not only does the model get quality images for her book we’re able to submit for publication which is an added benefit for all. And lets face it, it makes it much more exciting. Kate Troedsson did an amazing job with wardrobe styling on this one. The DVF dress is still one of my favorite pieces I’ve ever shot. Anyway, thanks to kate for putting so much effort into this one, you really went above and beyond. Thanks also to amazing makeup artist Terri Lodge and a production assist from Chelsea Chambers.
