I wanted to do a super clean cosmetic type shoot with a white background to test lighting and a photoshop technique, and Koral wanted a couple of shots for her portfolio so we did a mini session in the studio. Koral did a great job and was super fun to work with, and she has that unique ability to transform from shot to shot.

I flew to Antigua to photograph Daniel Davis for the College of Charleston magazine for a feature article. Dan is a biologist and a fine art painter of birds so for the shot we loaded up his Jeep and dragged the lighting kit out to the jungle. Originally I had wanted to dress Daniel up as Saint Francis of Assisi and cover him with birds, but Dan is a staunch Darwinian and balked at the idea. We seriously toyed with the idea of putting Dan in his Charles Darwin outfit (he has one) but decided that it would not make visual sense so we scrapped the concept and went with a straight ahead approach. It was a fun shoot and Daniel is a great guy. Besides, any reason to go to Antigua is worth the trip as it is probably the most beautiful city in Central America.
