THROWBACK THURSDAY: Portfolio Update with David Earl

Uncategorized

It’s Thursday again already?!

Wow, how time passes.  To make it better, I share this awesome session with David Earl photographed by Sergio Garcia.  

The purpose of this photoshoot was to compile various looks and show David’s versatility. From fitness, to casual, to suiting,  he shows a different side of a well groomed man’s closet.

For the relaxed looks, I used a bit of Awapuhi Texturizing Sea Salt Spray by Paul Mitchell and roughly blow dried it with my fingers. I then dressed it with Bumble and Bumble Sumo Tech for a bedhead hold.

As the session progressed, I dressed the hair with a much neater  pompadour effect. I achieved this by using a paddle brush and smoothing all of the hair directed back. The Sumo Tech activated with the heat and created a nice finish so I just sealed in place with a mist of Paul Mitchell Extra Clean Hairspray.

Lastly, we wanted to portray a very crisp, debonair gentleman. To complete his well tailored suit look, I deep side parted the hair using his eyebrow as a guide to keep proportion. I used Kenra Grooming Pomade and used a fine toothed comb perfectly smooth it back. I topped it off with a fine mist of Paul Mitchell The Shine for a lacquer finish.

I hope you enjoyed it and that you have fun using these essential products as much as I do.

Model Features

I had the pleasure of working with Magdalene, a beautiful model from The Campbell Agency here in Dallas, Texas.  The looks created for this session featured ultra modern dewy, almost wet, textures that exude youth and freshness.  I achieved the effect on the skin by utilizing Josie Maran Argan Oil as a moisturizer mixed with Lé Métier de Beauté Classic Flawless Finish Foundation.  The glossy and hyper wet texture was achieved by painting on Privé Flash Brilliance cocktailed with Grooming Pomade with a tint brush.

Enjoy!

“Young. Rich. Beautiful”

This editorial film showcases beautiful textures and fashion for a young socialite.  I drew inspiration from vintage Grace Coddington photographs, Queen Nefertiti drawings, and Kate Moss circa 1990.  Glossy, wet textures meet dry, matte intentional frizz.  Pops of neon colors contrast against Murphy’s alabaster skin.  Fashion photographer, Samantha Collie, attributed diffused lighting along with a beautiful contract of color, composition, and shadow.  Fashions from Alexander McQueen and vintage pieces added beautiful flair. Enjoy!
