Tate McRae “Pure Knit” Capezio photo and video shoot

Tate McRae “Pure Knit” FINAL CUT from That Werks on Vimeo.

There was one day I got to work with an amazing crew and talented dancer in a blowout extravaganza not only filming a dance video, but also doing a photo shoot on that very same day. We filmed the video with playback of Tate McRae’s original song “Hung Up On You” and choreography she came up with from scratch.

This shoot is from right around the time I started doing headshots in a new way. I typically stay away from flat lighting, but it works well for the modeling portfolio headshots because it shows off features without heavy shadowing and it minimizes skin irregularities. I particularly love the look with the red dress and red lipstick. Raen (hair/makeup) always does a great job of going over the wardrobe choices with me so that we’re on the same page.

McKenna did a great job, nailed all her looks and we made use of some spaces at the studio that hadn’t been used before.

Exploring Wawayanda State Park

Exploring Wawayanda State Park

If you are looking for a vast location to explore then I’d recommend taking a trip to Wawayanda State Park in Sussex County. There are trails, an abandoned building that formerly made iron and a beautiful lake and beach. I went for a walk to unwind and I really was blown away by the textures I was finding at my feet. The sun was giving me brilliant shimmering sand and nice harsh shadows on the surrounding buildings. It’s a cool place to get some exercise and experience some peace of mind.

Brianne for Cleri Models

Here’s a fun shoot I did with Brianne from Cleri Models in the studio. I’ve been digging the Savage backdrops lately. They really are perfect for giving me the pop needed for modeling work. I like a nice crisp directional light, drop shadow and a vibrant backdrop and their seamless paper fits the bill for that aesthetic. We also employed a little bit of haze for the environment.

Alchemy Mind & Body in Princeton, New Jersey

Alchemy Mind & Body in Princeton, New Jersey

There’s nothing quite like getting a call that a spa needs photographs. You know you’re in for a serene environment to work in and people who remain calm all day long unlike most of the workforce. I also got to use three of my favorite lenses for this shoot. The Iawoa 15mm, tilt-shift Nikon 24mm and Mamiya 55mm.

Here is what I did at Alchemy Mind & Body:

  • Breathed in
  • Breathed out
  • Took photos
  • Moved some lights
  • Drank some cucumber water
  • Flew the drone
  • Listened to soothing music
  • Walked down a path surrounded by bamboo
