This is from August 2013Thank you too, Evangeline and Lora for the early morning, and to Giuseppina Magazine for the Publication. :D
A 5 page editorial of my series 'Seeing Red' has been Published in Issue 15 of Giuseppina Magazine!! pages 119-124 are my art!!
I am beyond excited!
I am officially a published Photographer!!
As soon as they announced the theme Monochromatic, the image I created instantly pop'd into my mind. A women with red hair, against rain peeling paint, with red lips, and a red blindfold. I needed to plan a last minute shoot, but everything just aligned right, and worked out.
I got to work with the lovely Evangeline Kroon, we have tried a few times, and this time was just perfect, my friend Lora Angus was able to help with makeup at the last minute too. It was quite an early morning, and our location also changed last minute. I usually like everything planned, but this was just one of those go with the flow sort of days.
We got to this old abandoned red barn, we pull into the long drive way and see cars parked at it, expecting there are other models and photographers, we're amused when it's a few people camped out.
I felt bad because we woke them up, but I wanted to get these photos done. They come out and we said are hello's to be polite and they went back to sleep. They weren't bothersome until their one friend woke up and was yelling hi to us across the way as we were taking photos. Luckily we were pretty much done by then.
We packed up, said a quick goodbye to be polite then headed off.
As soon as I go home, I had my pictures right on the computer, picking out my favorites and editing like a fiend. Not long after they were done, I e-mailed them to Giuseppina Magazine. Anxiously I waited, for all of 2 hours! Ha! That made me so happy when Editor Jessica Rowell accepted my images for her Publication.
I felt validated, beyond happy. I felt my work was speaking for myself, that I was good enough to be published. Such am amazing high, of just feeling accepted.
Of course now I have the bug, I want it more, I need it. Getting my art out there means the world to me, especially that I know people like it.
I have the best job in the world, I get to do my Boudoir and Pin up work, and make women feel amazing and beautiful, and I get to create art to share with the world. What could be better than that?
You can view the images, as seen in a magazine bellow. There are also some behind the scenes. Let me know your thoughts.
