I’ve been wanting to shoot Amie forever for IHG and it was awesome to finally get the chance… and what a chance it was. Amie told me she had an amazing location, an artist’s studio (we won’t drop names), and when she described the place, I knew we had to shoot there. It did not disappoint.
The place was a feast for the eyes; I could have sat in one spot all night just looking around at the amazing work on display, and the artist’s collection of eclectic sculptures, furniture and macabre delights. We were pressed for time, so I didn’t get to light this so that you would see all of the awesome stuff on display, but you get a hint of it in the background. Anyway, to say this was my kind of place is an understatement. And to make it even better, we shot there a couple of days before Halloween.
I am a huge fan of Stanley Kubrick and I’ve been looking to do an homage to his last film, Eyes Wide Shut. I love the mysterious and Amie was the perfect model for it: sleek, ridiculously fit, and great at posing. She nailed the vibe (love the creepy mask on her), and helped produce a seductive set in the spirit of Halloween.
