Pre- Raphaelite Shoot

We picked out an interesting little spot in Orlando called Azalea Park. The concept was driven by the Pre-Raphaelite era. A mixture of "Ophelia" and Waterhouse's "The Lady of Shalott". The clothing was ordered on Amazon and it was mostly all velvet.


The makeup was done by the talented Ashley Hensel from Ash.Did.That and the styling was done by internationally published Victor&Ash




These girls did an amazing job playing the role. They both had these beautiful facial bone structures that tied into the concept perfectly. Not to mention they were troopers because it was hot as balls that day and they never once complained. Art was first and foremost and as an artist I was deeply grateful!



Finding A Location & Concept


Ever since NYC I've had a similar concept brewing in my head. I used to walk through the halls of the Met and watch these paintings. However, at that time I didn't feel I had the skill nor the talent of certain individuals at my disposal to achieve what I wanted to portray. Location was another thing I wanted to get right and it took some time but now that I live in Florida, I had the privilege of meeting the right people whom were able to help me bring this to life. A deep search for unique looking spots in Florida was quite the homework but I was fortunate to find a tiny little park in Orlando that worked so well, I shot their 3 more times. Even though I live in Port St. Lucie and work from West Palm Beach, I wasn't going to pass up an opportunity to create something amazing. I look forward to working with this team again and I'm excited see what ideas we come up with next.
