Calvin- Rock Canyon Class of 2014

A Sneak-Peek!   The third senior from this family that I have had the opportunity to photograph.
I love the image because it brings together warm & cool tones and creates an awesome image of Calvin that even Mr Klein would approve of for an advertisement!

Urban Guys

We do everything we can to separate the looks for the guys from what we do for the girls.  Gotta make guys look tough, strong and cool. The backgrounds and locations all need to reflect that.  Flowers are an obvious no-no and anything that makes their arms look skinny: polar-opposite of girls, right?  But what's crazy is that girls when they're all glammed-up look great in guy locations with the iron, brick & grunge.  The urban fashion photography of Vogue & GQ moving into high school senior photography with aplomb.
Mr Dalton totally looks the part and we're looking forward to showing his family more of these!

It's Throw Back Thursday: Best Senior Personality Ever

I have yet to meet a high school senior like Dylan; Intelligent, outgoing, funny and loved by all.  And when I was selected to photograph this big personality- I knew I had better meet his expectations and adequately capture everything about him!
Dylan wore his collection of Caddyshack/Rodney Dangerfield inspired pants and shirts and it goes without saying: we just had a great time and made a lot of creative images.  Inspired by his pants, we created the top photo (below) in the studio with an idea of making him hang from a pole like a flag...  however, at his order appointment his mom and I conspired to tell him that these images, "just didn't look good" so he would hopefully forget about the photos (that was tough for me because he was disappointed).  We hatched a plan: I would photograph the Rock Canyon High School flagpole and put him on it.  His parents purchased a full-page Senior Ad in the Rock Canyon High School yearbook and I created the layout with this photo and their sweet tribute to their son.  I couldn't believe it but they all managed to keep it a surprise until the day he- and everyone else at the school- saw it in the yearbook.  Oh, how I wish I would have been there!

Back to his photo session: We talked and laughed all through his shoot and he told me about his notoriously famous crazy tuxes he had worn to prom over the years and his plans for his Senior year: He  had to overwhelmingly top all past-years tuxes in obnoxious zaniness.  He described it to me and I had to see it.  I wanted to so badly, I volunteered to photographed the entire entourage of friends who had gone to prom together for years!  It was a lot of work but tons of fun, so on this 'Throw Back Thursday', I salute you Dylan!
