Stephen Goff - Portrait Session

I had a few minutes to work in some head shots with Knoxville musician, actor and model, Stephen Goff. We had a great location in the 4th & Gill neighborhood area to shoot at, we worked in-between takes on the set of a new music video (coming soon!). Be sure to check out his band Stephen Goff & The Royals@stephengoffmusic or stephengoffmusic.com.

Finishing up a portrait session with Nashville recording artist Camille Rae. We traveled to Tuscaloosa, AL for this shoot and met a lot of awesome people. There are a lot of big things coming up for Camille this fall, including a music video we shot that looks awesome! I can't wait to get it edited for everyone to see. Check out Camille on social media @camilleraemusic and see here website Here.

Kelsey Kane - Portrait Session

Sometimes the best planned ideas for a shoot end up on the floor the moment the model shows up. Do you pose them like this? Do you have them sit like that? A lot of times you spend the entire shoot trying to erase yourself from the process until you get the subject to give you something that is uniquely an expression of themselves that only they can reveal. In this case it was a group of ideas that became improvisations as Kelsey moved gracefully from one setup to the next telling me in a very convincing tone that she "was not a model." Kelsey's background as an athlete and bikini fitness competitor kicked in the moment it clicked between us that this was a competition, one that we were both in together. At that moment the photo shoot stopped and an artistic collaboration began as Kelsey engaged the camera with a fierceness that only a world-class competitor can deliver. Amazing hair and makeup provided by Krista Segars.

Chase Ketron - Portrait Session

Working with fitness model Chase Ketron to create an image that was iconic and marketable presented a challenge. Chase has a great portfolio and has worked with a lot of amazing photographers, so I knew we had to create something different that he had not done before. We had a very creative shoot, I look forward to working with Chase again in the future. Make sure to follow him here on Instagram.
