Fashion Photography featuring American Apparel underwear

Another editorial spread for Mint Male. I wanted the photos to have a retro 50′s sun-drenched look, the underwear from American Apparel and the Adidas gear finished it nicely.

Myth Collection

In this collection I was mixing come classic mythological imagery with tattoo flash.  Both the Perceus and Medusa pieces are painted on art board with silver leaf.  I mixed interference powder into a heavy black screen ink to get the color flares.

Celebrity Portraits: Ronnie Kroell

Ronnie was a contestant on a Bravo show called “I want to be a supermodel”.  The feature we did on him was inspired by the movie “A Single Man” and I was really going for this underlying tension between the models.  There’s never a moment when they’re looking face to face.  The fashions were provided by Cram and Goorin Brothers.

Celebrity Portraits: Scott Herman

Scott is starting his own fitness empire.  His fitness videos are crazy popular on youtube, and he was a cast-mate on the Real World: Brooklyn.  These photos were originally shot for the November 2010 Mini Mint and I was going for a retro underwear ad look.  I’m especially happy about the shot with the Calvin Klein underwear.
