Here is a Claire Coffee interview and photo story in the latest issue of “the stndrd”, a great new Men’s Magazine. Claire is a big 49ers fan so she is excited for the Super Bowl this year. Claire was such a pleasure to work with. I want to give 2 big “thank yous” to my amazing Stylist Lindsey Dupuis and Make Up artist Andre Sarmiento. Look for more images from this shoot of Claire to come out in the media now that NBC’s Grimm returns to prime time.
I am shooting the 6th year of the Chrome and Elegance calendar featuring classic trucks and beautiful women in classy attire. The 2019 edition will be all captured on film with minimal post production in order to give it a retro look. In between advertising shoots, I select the fashion in LA with each model for 2 shots each which means I usually bring 5 to six looks as I like to create alt shots for Social Media and promotion that will not be the final look used in the calendar. I shoot Kodak Portra using a Nikon 4s and Mamiya 7II camera systems usually hand held during Golden Hour. I was inspired by the ads Peterbilt made in the 70s and 80s and hope to publish a book one day of my top slects from over the years. Please enjoy these images from 1 of the set ups I did at Leaping Deer Ranch in Las Vegas New Mexico this January with Agnes and Jack’s 1969 Daycab.
