6/29 "East Meets West" featuring Ariana Wu

As soon as I met with Ariana and worked with her in the studio, I knew that she is the perfect example of a blending of East and West for this shoot theme!  Born in China, she has gorgeous Asian features yet you can obviously see the Western influence to include her blonde hair.  I recently had a short session with her and I've included a few shots below.  Not only does she have the looks essential to be a great model, but she is fun to work with and has great ideas during a shoot!  

Ariana will bring a variety of outfits, ranging from a Chinese style dress to a more classic American jeans & t-shirt type of look.  And, we will have an MUA for this shoot (hence the higher registration cost).  If you've never done a shoot with an MUA, it is definitely worth the additional cost as it will notably decrease editing/retouching time!

WHEN:  Please plan on arriving at least 10 minutes early to allow time for "housekeeping items" as we will promptly enter the studio and get started at 12:00 p.m. sharp so we can utilize every moment possible of our two hour studio time.   

I plan on being there by 11:30 a.m. so if there is anyone new to shooting with the group or shooting in the studio, I can give you an overview of what to expect and the basics you need to know for the shoot.  

WHAT TO BRING:  Bring your camera, preferred portraiture lens(es), and your creativity.  A willingness to learn & have fun are a big plus!  Remotes for firing studio strobes and all other studio essentials will be provided.

WHERE:  We will meet in the R&L Digital (side entrance of building) lobby area.  We will be working in Studio B for this shoot and will use studio strobes for all shots.

IMPORTANT REQUIREMENT:  Each photographer will need to provide our model (as well as any MUA, stylist, or other talent included as part of the shoot) with five retouched/edited digital images from the shoot within 14 of the shoot.  If you cannot meet that deadline or have any questions, please contact me prior to registering for the shoot.  If you do not wish to or are unable to meet this requirement, please do not sign up for this shoot.  This requirement is important because the images received from the shoot is the the primary way that our models (and MUAs, stylists, etc.) are compensated for their time and talent in working with us.  We typically provide these to the models via Dropbox.  I’m glad to be of assistance if you don't know how to do this.  Also, please post your finished images to the folder for this shoot -- the photographer images posted for our shoots helps to promote future shoots and our group in general!  

UPDATES:  Also, please note that any updates, changes, or new information will be posted as comments here.  Thus, I recommend checking comments below before coming to the shoot.  

ORGANIZER CONTACT INFORMATION: Here's my direct contact information.  The cell number is especially helpful if you register for this shoot and have any last minute issues or such.

    This shoot certainly met expectations (and beyond). Ari was awesome. Ricki did a great job with makeup. And, as if things weren't interesting enough with just one wonderful model, once Lewis showed up (early for his shoot), things really livened up. Lots of fun!
