[Model Shoot] Thuy Tran – Vintage Shoot @ The Commons (5.13.10)

Posted in 2010, black and white, Color, Digital, model shoot, Photo Post, Vintage Shoots by William Patrick Butler on May 17, 2010

this is a shoot i’ve been wanting to do for a while.

i’ve had the idea of doing a vintage 1930s/1940s/1950s style shoot, but having the idea is just the first part of the process.

a lot of things had to fall into place for me to turn that idea into photos.

so i’d like to thank: Jonathan Sims (for providing the location), Katie Drummonds (for providing the clothes), Tom Beck (for letting me use his lights), Lizzie Wright (for letting me use her strobist gear yet again), Christina Cannon (for letting me borrow some last minute hats which we didn’t end up using but didn’t know that we wouldn’t at the time), Michel Herrington (for introducing me to the model), and to Thuy Tran (my model)

Melissa Rodwell, a fashion photographer i really admire (and whose photo blog i’m addicted to), is always saying, in that same blog, how important it is to have a good team.  and how that helps produce great photos.  she’s completely right.

it also helps to have good friends too. 😉

let’s get started 🙂



Arthur Jones Poplar BBQ! (5.8.10)

Posted in 2010, Color, Digital, Photo Post by William Patrick Butler on May 12, 2010

hey guys, slight change of plans

i know i said, last post, that this post would be The Bedroom Series.  but(!) after getting done enjoying myself greatly at the annual Arthur Jones BBQ i knew i just had to post those photos first.

besides, posting these first is keeping with the founding theme of this photoblog, which is to show, well, scenes around jackson 😉

and so, without further ado!
