1950 Chevrolet Deluxe Pin-up Girls

High time I did another pin-up themed model shoot with two of my favorite fellow artists, Karen (makeup) and Tracey (hair). Brian from Wayne’s Speed Shop was kind enough to let us use his sweet 1950 Chevrolet Deluxe coupe and he also picked out the location. Good work, Brian!

We started just as the sun dipped, which gave us a nice scene to sculpt with speedlites and a big ole softbox hooked up to my ABR800.

It was a hilarious shoot as usual with this bunch and a few of the locals came to check it out. Including some dude that claimed to be a Hell’s Angel. There is no way this guy was one of them either. You can’t go around lying about something like that, sir!

Want to schedule a shoot with me? Take a look at my photography work and contact me.

Fashion Shoot With Model Angela Wong

This is my second shoot with Angela and we had one hour together at Boyd Park in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The rain was constantly teasing us. Even though it was June, that particular morning was very cold and she wasn’t wearing the warmest attire. I was switching between natural light and an Alien Bee ringflash/430EX combination to get as many looks as possible before we had to conclude the session. Thank you so much for coming out to shoot, Angela.

Air Force Captain Trumble’s Vintage 1967 Ford Mustang

Having a nice Memorial Day weekend? Let’s all remember the people who give their all for America. On a beautiful Saturday morning I jumped in the back of a classic 1967 Ford Mustang convertible and rode to the Air Force Mobility Command Museum. Capt Brian Trumble and I were hoping for a day like this. Perfectly blue skies and white clouds.

One of his daughters, Bella, was with us and it was her first time riding in the Mustang. She asked lots of questions abd was very excited to see a C-5 practicing near the base. Once we arrived at the museum we took a walk through the indoor portion to see the vintage aircraft and equipment. The staff said we could pull around to take some photos very close to the aircraft. We took shots of the car by itself, with Bryan and with Brian/Bella. A lot of fun! Thanks again, Brian and Bella, for coming out to shoot!
