In the presence of beauty

What would you do in the presence of a beautiful woman. I could ask 10 different people and probably get very similar answers. Some I won’t mention here.  But we won’t talk about that. If you are curious on what I would do? “I took her picture!” Taken a few years ago, I have always wanted to share these. Unfortunately, I never got around to doing it. Yes. Life gets in the way. It does eventually catch up, so here […]

Head Shot Photographer Oklahoma

Head Shots in Oklahoma City

I have always been a fan of head shots. Over the years, I have learned that there is only so much that the photographer can do. A good portion of the shot really depends on the person getting their picture taken.  If they have the ability to communicate with their eyes, it is the deciding factor that will make or break the shot. Here are a few of my favorites. More can be seen on my website. If you are […]

Alternative MOMUAP Model Mandei

Alternative / Goth Modeling in Oklahoma City

Alternative modeling is a genre of modeling industry that features models who are not considered mainstream ideas of beauty. This is often niche-specific genre, with a personal style representing subcultures like Gothic, Burlesque, Latex, and Fetishism. An alternative model is usually tattooed, pierced, or has multiple body modifications. They have distinctively wild hair such as shaved, dyed a distinctively unnatural color, even styled into a Mohawk or dreadlocks. I have always enjoyed working with alternative models, some of them can be […]

Are you ready?

Just a week ago, a friend of mine contacted me stating he is needing a red-headed model with a decent complexion that can pull off a classy look. This was for a commercial in Oklahoma City. After a few questions, they told me the following requirements:  Over the age of 25. It was a commercial for a wine club that is wanting about a 2 minute clip.  She needs to have strawberry red hair. Doesn’t have to be natural.  Able to […]

Ride along with CK Tours

Ride Along with CK Tours

What else could you ask for when a professional glamour model like Charlie Kristine asks to do a shoot? “Can we shoot now?” Pulled from her Model Mayhem page: “I really just have a divine appreciation of life, a value of people, places and the world that surrounds us. Modeling has become a vehicle for me to get out there and just be with what I feel such a deep love and value for. I love modeling and photography.  It […]

Bikini Shoot Choctaw by Subtle Shades Photography

Bikini Casting in Oklahoma City

I was really disappointed that Glass Hat Magazine, L.L.C. did not do a bikini calendar this year. Apparently projected sales of last year’s calendar were lower than the company’s targeted goal. So they are planning on doing something completely different for 2015. I cannot wait to see what the company comes up with. As soon as I find out, I’ll let everyone know. It is good to know that this artist focused publisher’s mission is to promote small time artists, […]

Asia Abendroth Nude Model

Shooting from the hip with Asia Abendroth

Several months ago I was glancing through my portfolio and noticed that I didn’t have any Asian models. Being half Filipino and Chinese, I thought that was odd. So I was on the look out to add one to my portfolio. In February, I was coasting through Model Mayhem, commenting on other photographer’s images, I ran across Asia Abendroth.  Her portfolio was superb. Her profile stated she is a traveling model. Well I’ll be! She is also coming through Oklahoma. I […]

Busy Bee

Bee Bee…I was introduced to Busy Bee Brunson back in May of 2012, when I was commissioned to shoot the 2013 Bad Kitty Promotion Bikini Calendar. She had never been in front of a professional camera before and was extremely nervous. Bee believed that she would not look good in front of the camera. But about 3 minutes into the shoot, I had her laughing and relaxed. She took directions well and together we loved the shots we came up with. […]
