Vanity Fair Styled Shoot – Fort Collins Senior Photographer
We have to admit- this is one of our favorite shoots to do with our PBD model team! In case you’re unfamiliar with what our model team is about, it’s a group of high school seniors we recruit each year to model with our studio. Our purpose goes much deeper than modeling- our goal is to cultivate a community of kindness and positivity full of awesome individuals. We help them to grow and get to know one another through each photoshoot and activity we have planned for the year. We love being able to build confidence in this age group- it goes such a long way in this lifetime and being given this gift of confidence, especially at this age can be life-changing.
Every year we style a Vanity Fair themed shoot and capture our team in a way they’ve typically never been photographed before. This is one of the shoots we look forward to most because of it’s completely unique style- it’s not every day you get to dress up like a celebrity, have your makeup done and be photographed like you’re at the Academy Awards. Seeing all those Oscar’s photos from the Vanity Fair’s pop up studio come up on our feeds gets us so inspired to create this look for our models. Our stunning, custom made Oliphant backdrop gives the perfect feel to these images – timeless, classic, fine art. Each of our models had their makeup done with our incredible makeup artist Keegan Steele from Steele the Spotlight. Keegan does the most beautiful job of bringing out each person’s amazing features and creating a custom look depending on each person’s style and vibe – we love how each of our models looks turned out. One of the reasons we love this shoot is because at this point in the year we’ve worked with our models on a number of shoots, so they’re all feeling comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. In order to pull off this Vanity Fair style, it requires a sense of confidence, ease, and grace which we think our models did an amazing job of bringing to the shoot.
