It has released...Kontrol Magazine... The Fantasy Issue

So we did a Cover story on Both Vivica Fox and Chilli

Vivica Fox's story was her being portrayed as Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmatians

Really, what I got from the story when shooting it was this amazing fashion story about different ways to see black and white. The stylist (Julian Lark) did an amazing job at finding accessories to compliment the black and whites and give a fresh pair of eyes to a classic color combination. Cruella De Vil was a catalyst for the story to be told, so some of it stems from a specific vision and others are just our own interpretation.

So here is the story, tell me what you think

I'll post some of the other fashion stories I shot for the magazine later on in the week....Hope you like this one tho!

Also check out a few outtake shots from a recent Rolling Out Magazine shoot with Rap Sensation Trina

I did something similar with an artist by the name of Tierra Marie

It helps loosen everyone up before shoots, and allows them to get familiar with my shooting style etc

I've done something similar with Polaroids before
with both

Teyana Taylor

and Kevin Hart

Now, I have shot a few things I'm really happy about that aren't in any magazines
but I'm waiting for those to be cleared first, but here's my personal favorite image at the moment

Something about this image really makes me happy!

Shot with all natural light, no reflectors, or additional equipment, just me, the camera, and the model!
