The FanDom Nerdlesque - 120FPS Video B-Roll Test

This is a bit of a departure from the regular content normally found in my Blog posts. Many who have talked with me about my background know that I started in video before finding my "calling" in photo. 

I just so happened to be at a birthday party for one of my regular clients, and heard that The FanDom was going to be shooting some promo photos and video for their upcoming show. After finding out that my day was open they invited me to come by and hang out for the day. I expected to maybe do some consulting work and a fair bit of networking. Little did I know I would end up running sound, and then in a stroke of genius decided to pull out my camera and record a little super-slow-mo video B-roll for their project.

Its not perfect by any means, but it was a nice little sizzle reel to remind myself that I still know a thing or two about video. 

Tru Facade - 2018.

From her Bio:
Tru Facade is new to the Atlanta burlesque scene and one of the newest members of the CandyBox Revue! Holding a Bachelor’s as a theatre technician, Tru has been working backstage for almost 10 years, helping create the magic of the stage. Finally stepping into the limelight, she’s ready to show off her skills as an entertainer and turn the masses heads. She's a little sweetie with some spice behind her smile, she is Tru Facade.

Tru approached me for a shoot after being recommended by regular clients Désiré and Kali (I found out as well that there is an entire troupe that has also been speaking very highly of me even though I have never worked with them...more on that to come maybe?). Her unique mix of Masculine and Feminine personas are not to be missed. 

For being her first official photographic experience, I was happy to be able to make things easy and comfortable for what will be her first of many shooting experiences.


Nina La Voix - 2018.

Nina La Voix is a burlesque performer and producer based out of Brooklyn, New York.  Her performance style is hard-hitting yet strikingly sensual. With a heavy classic and street dance background, Nina's style often blends the classic structures of burlesque with modern/neo twists. She has graced international stages including Paris and Amsterdam.  

I got to work with Nina almost by accident, and I certainly wasn't aware of her celebrity status. While on business in NYC, I reached out to a few different models, and Nina was the one that responded the most positively. It's not every day that a stranger reaches out and invites you to his hotel room for a photoshoot. Nina was completely cool with working through some ideas and we both were super excited with the results. 

Nina is a completely awesome individual, and you should not miss tracking her down if you are in the big city.

Kat - 2018.

Kat is one of those special people who constantly light up whatever room they are in. I'm fairly thankful that I had a chance to snap a few images of her while working with some other clients a short while ago.

Kat had just finished a much more planned and extravagant photoset, and while we were packing up I asked if she would be willing to sit and let me grab a few portraits. A few minutes later we were all done, and I ended up with a series of images that truly capture who Kat really is.
