Carolina Style Magazine Winter Book Publication | North Carolina Photographer

I started out 2014 not actively seeking to be published, so I was extremely honored and surprised when Carolina Style Magazine reached out in November of 2014 and ask me to be part of their limited table top book publication title "The Winter Book".  At the time I had another photo shoot lined up but it didn't fit the theme that they wanted which was Raleigh Street Style, so I quickly had to change the photo shoot and the players to accommodate the theme.  In addition to the Raleigh Street Style featured in the book I was also asked to do a second photo shoot for the owners of Raleigh Denim Workshop which was also included in the book, I will be releasing those images on another blog post, so stay tuned for that.

I reached out to Shannon Sharpe at Conversionz Makeup Studio, Nicollette Grenier for the female model, Caleb Provan for the male model,  Tina B KonTroversai for styling, Nicole Sue who was the Creative Director and the key person that helped provide the vision for this shoot.  To help complete the team Wayne Myers was also behind the camera capturing the awesome footage in the below Behind The Scenes video.  Lastly, assisting with lighting, gear etc James Thomas and David Spector generously step up to the plate to offer some incredible help on set.  Without this awesome team this shoot would not have happen in the short space of time it needed to happen, so for that I am very grateful to everyone that participated.

I mentioned the "The Winter Book" on another blog, so I will be repeating myself a little bit.  The Winter Book was put together for fashion collectors.  The book has over 200 pages of striking visual fashion editorials from Charlotte, Charleston, the Raleigh / Triangle area and New York City.  This is a limited edition book so it's poised to be a fashion collector's item.

Thank you to Carolina Style Magazine for considering me to be part of this awesome publication and thank you to the great team who helped made it happen.

BEHIND THE SCENES VIDEO

3 Min Portrait Holiday Edition | North Carolina Photographer

Last night I went to the preview event of Carolina Style Magazine first table top publication, The Winter Book at Moon Lola in Raleigh, North Carolina.  I had an amazing time and most importantly made some wonderful connections.  So what's this publication about and why did I attend the event?  

Well first the publication, The Winter Book was put together for fashion collectors.  The book will have over 200 pages of striking visual fashion editorials from Charlotte, Charleston, the Raleigh / Triangle area and New York City.  This is a limited edition book so it's poised to be a fashion collector's item.  As of today, I was informed the book is completely sold out, which is insane and it speaks to the incredible support Carolina Style Magazine has and to the amazing content this book contains.

Now, why did I attend this event?  So these types of events are great for networking and meeting colleagues in the area and beyond.  However, what I am most excited about is that I had the pleasure and honor of having a few of my images being published in this book.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to share the amazing images from the two photo shoots I did for the book until I am given the green light, I know, it hurts me too :-(.

So after the event I wanted to do a quick photo shoot in front of the christmas tree in downtown Raleigh.  There was no game plan, it was just something I wanted to get out of my system.  I didn't know if the images would be good or bad, I just wanted to do it.  Nicolette Grenier who is an amazing model was at the event along with James Thomas or should I say Dr. Thomas who is an awesome photographer, they both agreed to indulge me in this crazy unplanned shoot in the cold weather.  When we got to the tree I ask James to hold the light and I quickly setup Nicolette how I wanted her to be posed.  I took my first image at 9:30pm and I took my last image at 9:33pm, hence the 3 min portrait title.

I want to thank The Carolina Style Magazine for including me and my wonderful team to be in this book.  I also want to thank Nicolette Grenier and James Thomas for braving the cold weather to indulge me with this quick and crazy shoot.  Below you will find the images from the photo shoot and I hope you enjoy them as much as we did when we were creating them.  Please stay tuned for new and I hope amazing things in 2015.  Happy holidays and happy new year to all.
