Hats and Fascinators – Something different

This time of year is real slow for us outdoor environmental portrait photographers, especially in Maine where there are 6 foot snow banks, so when Janet of By Alpha Couture contacted me to photograph her gorgeous hats I just couldn’t resist.  These hats are incredibly unique and colorful with accents and fine details that deserve to be captured in camera.  The whole shoot was done at f11 to capture every nuance of detail with a 2 foot soft box, white foam core board as fill and a background light.    I love these.. they are different, sophisticated and beautiful.  I’m looking forward to photographing these on a live model and bring some real high fashion to the state of Maine.  If you would like to model (Time for CD) please contact me.  Check out Janet’s site in a week or two to see these images in action at http://www.byalphacouture.com

Thank you, Josh, for coming out and doing these photoshoots for me on such a cold and miserable Valentine’s Day morning. Your work is exceptional and we certainly had a lot of fun, to the extent of giving the mannequins names! Your attention to detail is spectacular, and I look forward to us doing more such shoots with real models soon. Keep up and good work, and most of all, keep the smile and the good customer relationship – glad I found you!

You’ve always done things that are mind blowing but this art of craft if l may refer to this work superceeds it all. l believe there is more to come.

I love your hats how do I make a purchase my Nice Lonnette Williams just informed me

[…] contacted me to photograph some of her custom hats and facinators.  You can see those images here.  I remember discussing how great it would be to have some live models to photograph them on. […]

Here is my little super model Rachel at the Art of Animation resort at Disney World.  She is such the poser!  It was an amazing week away and my two kiddos loved every moment of it.  I wanted to travel real light so I took my 35mm 1.4 as my only lens.  I didn’t miss the telephoto all that much and worked on more “environmental portraits” and the like.  I can’t believe it’s been almost 30 years since I last visited the Magic Kingdom.  I also can’t believe they still have many of the same rides (still awesome though).

This little girl of yours is a natural poser! I think she will do well modeling some flower girl fascinators ….
