Hello fellow Fstoppers. My name is Chris Lambeth and this is my first post on here using my own work. Also, the first shoot I feel that is up to the level to be shared with more then just my Facebook fans and friends. My good friend and fellow photographer Seth Barlow, who has shot for companies such as Louis Vuitton, Gulf & Main, ect, decided to move back to my town of Spokane WA from Miami and purchase a studio. We got the place all cleaned up, or at least enough to shoot in, and decided to do a test run.
Spokane is not one for being a high fashion, trendy city. Mostly full of punks and gangsters, I tried to do something that Spokane hasn't seen before or for a long while. I wanted to go for a high fashion, magazine style shoot with weird clothes and a male model. I found Alex Kale Hansen who is a 18 year old fashion designer here and has done multiple fashion shows with his designs. He mostly designs woman's clothing, so none of the items in this shoot were designed by him. He obviously does modeling as well and had the perfect look I wanted. (If you'd like to check out his work, head to his website.)
I had my good friend and photographer, Joseph Tyler helping out as well being my assistant and creative director. Joseph and myself have worked together on almost every shoot and each time the shots come out exactly how we want due to knowing what each other wants. If I can offer advice to any photographer it would be to get a good assistant who knows exactly what you mean when you tell them you need something done. Saves time and frustration.
Now, enough with the intros. Heres the good stuff. This shoot was all done with a Canon 5D mark ii, Canon 50L 1.2, 2x PCB WL1600's, PCB AB1600 and a 22in white Beauty dish. I did forget my beauty dish sock so we had to improvise and use the shoot through part of a reflector which actually worked extremely well. That is one of the main things I love about photography; the different ways you have to solve problems on the fly.
With that being said, here are a few of the final images we got from the shoot. Hope you enjoy them!
