Silicon Valley meets Wall Street

A good photograph like a good book contains conflict. However, the conflict in a photo is visual, your eyes bounce off the conflicting elements as they explore the image. To communicate the idea of an IPO, Silicon Valley meeting Wall Street, I found using conflicting elements would be my best approach.

While planning the shoot, I decided that for each high tech item I added to the image I’d put in a corresponding Wall Street element. A cigar is offset with high tech Google Glass, a conservative suit is made new with a pixelation filter, and the model’s youthful face is framed with slicked back hair.

This photograph was turned into a visual soup of props and styling that tell the story.

Making a Robot

I shot this assignment for a story about the film, “Her”. The film directed by Spike Jonze dealt with the idea of humans and computers having relationships.

Turning this model into a robot required a lot of skills. The make up stylist was a huge help adding white make up to the model’s skin. Using a wig to make the model’s hair look too perfect made her robotic. Finishing the shot required many hours of Photoshop, adding details and enhancing the colors.

You can see the before and after pictures.
