Erika is a make up artist. A very good one at that.
One day on a shoot, her model didn’t show and that particular photographer asked her to do modeling instead. That single action opened up a new world for our friend Erika.
Erika’s currently in cosmetology school but also works in a tattoo shop in orange county. As if’ this girl isn’t busy enough, she’s decided to get a camera!
To get her to loosen up, I used my trusty model/photographer distraction tool.- My classic Polaroid Land Camera.
We shot near an abandoned shack in Long Beach. The textured background and the unkempt trees surrounding the structure made for some dramatic lighting.
