Vintage Creek Photography in Hashtag American Magazine
Wow, can I just start by saying how excited I am for this magazine article to come out! It’s been a whirlwind adventure. We went from concept to print in like 2.5 seconds.
I thought I would write a little blog post about how this article came about. I was contacted my Amanda McManus. She saw my underwater work and asked to collaborate on a project she had in mind. Amanda is an amazing make-up artist as well as fashion writer. We were in the very beginning stages of prepping for this underwater photoshoot, when she was contacted by another magazine to write an additional article. Since we were already going to be using the pool, we figured why not do two photoshoots at once.
This is where the crazy started, we had one day, a crazy short dead line, two separate models for two different magazines. Plus we had to coordinate tons of props. Fortunately, we were able to enlist the help of several assistants to make this underwater photoshoot happen. This first article is a bio on Fitness model Shawn Kraft for a new magazine located in Austin, TX called Hashtag American Mag. He was awesome in the pool and so fun to work with. I can’t wait until the other articles come out so that I can share them with you as well. Here are a few images from the shoot.
We had a LONG day in the pool. I got in the water at 11 am and didn’t get out until 4 pm! But it was all worth it.
This is is one of my favorite images that didn’t make the magazine cut. We had such a fun time playing around in the pool and coming up with crazy poses to try. Love the open white shirt and watch.
We couldn’t have done this without the help of the Schertz Family YMCA for use of the Pickrell Pool in Schertz, TX. As well as the help from the talented lifeguards on duty!
This is just the first of three articles that will be published in the next few weeks. I can’t wait to show you what’s coming next!
