Love Stories at Salon Cheval…

Thayra Rothweiler, one of the stylists that works frequently in the studio also works at Salon Cheval in Whittier. She invited me to a photographic play date with the stylists there. The salon owner and stylists had decided on ‘Love Stories’ as the main theme and each of the stylists did different styling based on their individual themes. I had fun photographing styling and ideas from three different stylists.

Theme –  The Notebook

Mindi & Heather… Old Hollywood, True Blue Style

Filed under: Personal work — Tags: , , , , , , , , — True Blue Photography @ 6:53 pm

As a photographer I am constantly working on perfecting my art, learning more and relearning things that I haven’t used in a while. (Sometimes too long). So in my effort to add more skills to my photo tool belt, I try to do a personal project once a month using sets, equipment and lighting that I don’t use every day. This time I busted out my old Novatron lights and some satin sheets and enlisted the help of a couple of friends to work up a little Old Hollywood Magic. Thanks to Mindi and Heather for helping me with this fun shoot. While neither of them are models, both of them very well could be.

Every so often I get a wild hair to do a special project. With studio manager and stylist Mindi and client Brenda in cahoots with me, we did a very cool vintage shoot at the Ebell Club in Long Beach. Enjoy!
