We shot with Jaime last summer and have been looking forward to another shoot ever since. Knowing she was a trained ballerina we wanted something a bit darker, perhaps even Black Swan inspired.
Lexie Tapper makes a quarry a little less rocky and a lot more chic.
An early snowfall forced us to move our planned location shoot indoors but we still wanted a “location” shoot. So we decided to attempt to fake it. Shooting on location and the dropping the subject into a background is no easy task. Lighting direction and quality must be matched so careful planning and lots of pre-production must be done. Then tons of Photoshop to achieve the resulting images. Lexie Tapper is an amazingly talented model and gave us some great images by themselves. Adding the quarry environment, made them just a bit better. We hope you like them as much as we do, enjoy!
