Beauty by Design Body Paint Shoot

In this body paint shoot I used design elements like circles and lines. I added some grunge effects, blends and drips. I used a primarily warm palette with greys to offset them and added some metallics for pop. I also experimented with masking and removing areas of paint to create designs. I really like the colored sheer fabric, smoke and lighting that Greg used to make the pictures look amazing. Andi was a pleasure to work with and killed her poses.

Homage to Philly Body Painting Shoot!

I did a backdrop for Phil at Studio 308 in Manayunk (Philly) a few months ago and I was thrilled when he said he had a model that wanted to do a body painting shoot with me. It’s always fun for me to work with new people! He sent me Rachel’s info and we came up with the concept to do a “Philly Themed” Shoot. I got references but I wanted to give it a bit of a street flavor and twist. The shoot was a lot of fun and Rachel and Phil were cool and fun to work with.
