#7 – Toxic Punk Headshot

I wanted to shoot with model Toxic because her skin looked so perfect in all her images. I’m a sucker for good skin – one of the reasons I wanted to shoot Janet as well.

Toxic doesn’t like using other MUAs, so she did her own. Probably a little light for most of the images. But then I wanted to do something wild with face paint and she did this. I think she used gaffer’s tape on her skin to get those perfect lines.

This is a classic high-key beauty image, but she isn’t a classic high-key beauty. Beautiful but alt.


#10 – Voltaire Concert

Picking the first 17 wasn’t too hard, but getting down to ten was painful. There were a couple of images that vied for #10, but I selected this one.

Kind of funny that one of the top 10 wasn’t even a model photography picture. Instead, it was a concert image. So why did I pick it?

Because it captured the moment so well. It was a concert and Votaire is pretty comical and satiric. He had a couple of fans up on stage singing the song with him and I shot the horizontal image. Of course what made it was someone lifting a glass in the foreground. Just added the feeling the image needed.
