Cora in Charlotte

I often travel for business, and when I do I always try to work with a local model. Looking at models on model mayhem, I came upon this lovely lady - Cora. We exchanged a few emails in which I sent a few concept images to use as inspiration, and we set a time. After picking her up, we headed to a place she had shot at before.

One of the advantages/disadvantages of shooting while traveling is limited knowledge of the area for locations. As we were driving, I spotted a few abandoned old warehouses and pulled a quick turn into the parking lot. We looked at each other, and knew we found our location. Those of you who know me know that two places get my photo mojo going – the beach and old buildings. 

Cora was an absolute pleasure to work with - killer personality, professional attitude and as you can see, she was just switched on. It is always a pleasure working with a talent such as her. Here is just a little teaser from that day.
