Fashion Photography featuring Lara Miller designs


Lara Miller is an incredible green designer and all her hand-loomed garments are crafted in the USA from sustainable fabrics.  I photographed her Spring 2012 collection at Macy’s and worked with model Valentine.  Lara also has a habit of naming her designs after people she knows – so check out the “Bret necklace” here – which is fairly cool.


Fashion Photography: Kirk James Collections at Dana Hotel Chicago

I loved shooting at the Dana Hotel, the space is this incredible marriage of texture and impeccable design.  The fashions were the perfect counterpoint to the space.


Fashion Photography featuring the 2009 Kirk James Collection

This shoot had one of the biggest crews I’ve ever managed, but I think the styling turned out amazing.  Kirk James is one of my long term clients, I love their clothes because the models are always very happy.  The taxidermy animals were just a bit fun.


Fashion Photography featuring the 2011 Kirk James spring collection

I’ve been shooting collections for Kirk James for a few years now, and we recently have moved to working with a model in the garments at my studio for their lookbook.  I really like the diptychs as a design element, it’s sort of a mini fashion story.
