When I was last in New York, I coordinated and did a photo shoot with hair stylist, Andrea Donoghue. The inspiration behind the shot was "pagan". We wanted the essence of the natural elements while highlighting the different hair styles. If you've viewed my portfolio, you may have already seen a few of these.
I've always had a fascination with the esoteric and pagan rituals of ancient times and its continued practice in modern society. This was a simple, straightforward shoot but it was a launching pad for other ideas I'd like to pursue.
As I've written before, I'm not a fan of shooting in-studio, despite its convenience. Maybe one of these days I'll do a photo shoot completely based on people who worship and respect nature and honor old spirits. That's my kind of religion.
