Ethereal Portraits with blnk Films

Editorial Featured Stories

I've recently so incredibly inspired by editorial portraits. The feeling of the unknown. The cadence, rhythm, and mystery of each session. Every portrait session is so vastly unique.

Kathryn from blnk Films reached out to me to photograph some headshots for her for the recent re-launch of her website. Taking a look at her films, I really wanted to create something that was both mystical and grounded. I wanted it to have a sense of ambiguity while still truly leaning into who she is and her personal sense of style and creativity.

We first started in the studio, using natural light and a dark backdrop to separate her from the background. After that, we went into the harsh sun to try and create photographs that were marked by deep contrast and heavy shadow. It's been an awesome journey to keep pursuing portrait work and I'm excited for more of it in the future.
