Earlier this year I entered the 2013 PDN The Look Contest, which is a yearly contest that focuses on a blend of fashion and fine art. I ended up winning the People’s Choice Award. I entered a series of photographs that I shot in Beverly Hills when my friend, and awesome fashion shooter Benjo invited me down to shoot some of my large format antique processes during an editorial shoot. I packed up my 8×10 Calumet Orbit C1 and had a blast shooting Noora L of Brand Model Management, Finland along side Benjo and his team. Here are those images, and a video that Nick Korompilas shot behind the scenes of us for. It was a fun day, especially getting to set up my mobile darkroom tent and processing the images right there on set, something I hadn’t done before. A big thanks to Benjo and the team for the invite, without that I wouldn’t have been able to create these images. The gallery of winning image can be seen here, and my new listing on PDN’s PhotoServe is here. It’s not first place, but there is always next year!
