I love being surrounded by so many amazing artists, photographers, creators and just… beautiful people who inspire me to do ‘great’ things. It has been a week of unpacking, pricing and placing back in the shop. I am so thrilled that many of the pieces have found a new home even before I could get it off the front counter! I absolutely LOVE our Downtown Vancouver and local community!
The individuals who really supported me through this is is the unbelievable hair stylist: Ashley Rauch who is located up the street at Cut Loose Hair Salon and Sarah Adams of Studio 77 located in downtown Portland who also did most of the make-up for this shoot. Couldn’t have done this without my assistants: Julie Smith and Anna James and my wonderful, kind, humble, beautiful and hilarious models; Brittney, Suzy, Faith, Jill, Jordan, Wesley, Brandon, Amanda and Bailey. Model A’s came from Diane at the Volcano A Classic Car group and Stephanie was so sweet to bring ‘Radley’ the greyhound dog (you will see Radley in many of the pictures to come). My dream team!
Ms. Ashley Ward walked into my shop a year ago. We started to chat. She bought an amazing leather jacket. And we became creative friends. Isn’t that how all friendships start? So, I asked her to be a part of my creative team.
Ashley was a part of our ‘Nesting’ shoot last April and did such a great job that I asked her to come and be a part of our ‘Escape’ 20’s editorial shoot. She came in as an assistant and side, black and white photographer. It was a joy to see her pictures a couple days ago and here are some of my personal favorites. Enjoy!
Before you see the pictures… imagine a cool, autumn, foggy morning and the sounds of morning birds in the air. From the distance you hear an a-ooo-ga and through the fog appears a beautiful Model A Ford. If only every morning started this way!
Many more fashion editorial photos to come from Mark Daniel Muzzy soon!
Thanks papa! You and mom gave me so many of the skills I have today to do these projects. This is my favorite themed photo shoot to date and so proud of the outcome. Love and Hugs!
Alisa, I am a watercolorist. Although I am re-starting out (pieces I painted 50 years ago were sold to a now defunct restaurant in downtown Portland at the Standard building) I have returned to my art. I would very much like to use the picture of the man/woman sitting on the bench (with the car behind them). And, possibly a few other historical-style work. Would you mind
I would be honored Marcy! You will have to send me a picture of your artwork when you are finished.
Cheers ~ Alisa
