There’s no shortage of talent in Tacoma. We have some incredible creators and some incredible models as well. Kelsey is a mutual friend and we teamed up to not only work on a paid gig I had for a commercial shoot but we took some time to do some personal shots for her as well while on location in the Tacoma Garages near downtown. We had excellent early morning light coming in through the windows which gave us some fun shadows and contrasting lines to play with. The Garages are a common photo shoot location and last time I drove by it looked like they were being renovated possibly, hopefully they will stay put and not be torn down during the time of much flux in the region.
I appreciate a model who can get up and get to a shoot early, Kelsey arrived and we got snapping. We kept the look minimal and I think she killed the posing, one of the hardest tasks for a model is to continually move and keep the posing interesting and fresh and she really nailed that. I loved her styling and she gave me the mood which allowed me to just shoot and focus on my task.
Get out there and make some stuff with your friends! It’s a great motivator and way to step out of your comfort zone and allow you to grow as a creator.
